Four summer beauty buys to get on your face immediately
Summer beauty buys, where's a girl to start?
While I adore makeup, it can be more than a little daunting (and confusing) trying to decide what products are best suited to you.
The beauty industry is thriving and there's a ridiculous amount of options to choose from, even a basic request such as choosing the right foundation requires certain considerations.
Shade, price, consistency, durability, ease of use, ingredients and that's just the start.
With that in mind, here are four products that deserve a mention. Most are newbies but there's one product that's used every single summer without fail which leads us onto...
Bobbi Brown Shimmerbrick, €44
My love for this will never die. In an age of unicorn highlighters, you can't beat some subtle shimmer with this compact delivering every single time. It has the perfect mix of multi-tonal shades and I tend to use it on eyes, cheeks and lips ensuring more bang for your buck, ideal.
It's designed to give a natural, healthy glow which makes it the perfect handbag hero and a product you'll reach for daily.

In Love with Olivia, Charlotte Tilbury by €35
The perfect shade of nude and while it features in this summer roundup, we plan on wearing this lipstick all year round. Nude is always a winner and when it comes to Charlotte Tilbury, Pillow Talk is certainly a frontrunner.
However, it looks like this new shade from the Hot Lips 2 collection is set to become this season's favourite lippie. Inspired by fashion maven, Olivia Palermo, Charlotte describes it "as the perfect accessory to every outfit because it looks amazing on everyone".
Just one of the gorgeous shades in the eleven-strong collection and as these lipsticks are so visually appealing, you'll be delighted to know they're all refillable too.

NARS Orgasm Palette, €46
This rather stunning palette features six satin-cream pigments for eyes, cheeks and lips and it's a thing of true beauty. Just look at that gorgeous pink hue and if the pretty packaging isn't enough to tempt you, the fact you can use it on eyes, cheeks and lips is definitely a major selling point.
Paring back up your makeup routine for the warmer months is key as it melts off your face half the time. The lightweight cream formula of these pigments blends beautifully and with some concealer, mascara and this palette, you'll have that effortless dewy look perfected in no time.
Laura Mercier Sun Kissed Veil, Riviera Sun, €46
Creamy goodness that comes in the compact of dreams. Adding this to your makeup bag means you can keep the summer going long after your actual getaway, we're holding on to those memories for as long as possible.
This balm is another multitasking product that can be used on the face, décolletage, legs and arms to achieve that summer glow. It's the most delicious formula that glides onto skin leaving a subtle bronze illumination. The shade is universally flattering and it's definitely a must-have for your holiday suitcase.
