AD: Summer Makeup & Beauty with Boots

AD - this is a paid collaboration with

I always have a little switch up in my makeup bag, skincare stash and even in my perfume collection for the Summer, because sometimes you need sunshine, a holiday or a festival to pull off neon liner or glitter makeup on your face. I am not afraid of taking risks though and you will always see me trying new trends and colours - I just love it! Today I am sharing some of my Summer beauty picks and a fun and easy makeup look which would be perfect for a festival or if you simply want to add a pop of colour just for fun!


I am absolutely loving the new Fenty liners (and the fact Fenty is now stocked in Boots!) and I have the BAESIDE Trio*(£27.00). Neon liner is definitely one of the hottest trends this Summer and I was really excited to give it a go. I was considering adding a small colour accent to my black liner, but I went for a full on neon moment instead. It's so easy and you can get creative with lines, dots, zig zags, even ombre liner! The possibilities are endless! If you're not into the full on neon - just add a little bit to your usual flick.

For the brows, I opt for the hassle free Benefit Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil*(£21.50) - it is always my go to- so easy to use! Then a few coats of the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara (£22.00) to accentuate my lashes and that's the eyes done.

Another Summer trend which never changes is a glowing, natural looking base. I love bare skin with a golden glow and I achieved it with the Botanics All Bright Radiance Balm*(£7.99) and a few drops of the Isle Of Paradise Self Tanning Drops in Medium*(£19.95). I am so impressed with this combination and how it transforms my skin, adding a beautiful golden tan and radiance at the same time. Simply mix a few drops of the tan with your moisturiser and let the product work its magic. Just remember to wash your hands after, because they will turn brown too, haha.


Let's not forget about the lips and cheeks, because we all love a bright Summer lippy, right? I can only get away with  wearing orange in the Summer and you won't see me wearing it any other season! I especially like the balm/crayon lipsticks, because they are super hydrating and add a nice shine too, making your lips look juicy and plump. I adore the Bourjois ones! Or you can do cheeks and lips with the Benefit Lolli Tint! It gives such a natural looking finish and works so well for warmer days, when you don't want product to sit on top of the skin.

And you can never go wrong with adding a stunning highlight, even on bare skin and the Sleek Highlighter Palette in Solstice*(£9.99) is such a classic - I think we all have one - bargain!

And to add a finish touch - I need a spritz (or 10) of  a gorgeous fragrance! Gucci Bamboo*(£49.00) is my go to and reminds me of |Summer, so I had to stock up for this holiday. I like versatile scents which you can wear during the day and as an evening option too. I find Gucci Bamboo perfect for this purpose, with floral notes of  Italian Bergamot, Orange Blossom, Casablanca Lily and Ylang-Ylang, followed by base notes of Sandalwood, Tahitian Vanilla and Grey Amber. I would definitely recommend trying it - it lasts all day on the skin too!

Do you like switching up your beauty products for the Summer? Will you be giving neon liner a go? Or will you be more subtle and only switch up your lipsticks to more brighter colours?
