Summer essentials | 2017

I've done seasonal essentials multiple times before, but I haven't done a summer once since 2015. I was planning on uploading this post at the beginning of August, but I've only gotten round to it now!

Lipgloss & Lip Balm | When it comes to the summer, my lips get really dry. Lipgloss and lip balm are a huge essential because theres nothing worse than having dry lips. I wear lipgloss a ton as the NYX one I have not only goes with a ton of makeup looks and over my lipsticks, but its extremely moisturising. 

Hats | Last year I found a love for hats. I used to wear hats and these sort of caps when I was younger. I love wearing these when I'm having a bad hair day or just in general. I have three that I love and wear a lot. I tend to wear one more than my others, but I love hats.

Music | Obviously music is an essential for everyday of the year for me, but I have a summer playlist that I like to listen to. In my summer music playlist, I have a bunch of loud songs that I think sound even better in the sunny weather. In my playlist I have some Spanish songs, some Drake, Future, Ariana Grande and a bunch of other songs from my favourite singers. I love listening to loud music in the summertime and I am planning on writing a summer playlist blogpost. 

Sliders | A shoe essential of mine other than sandals, is sliders. Sliders are a recent favourite of mine and have for sure been a huge essential this summer. Sliders are extremely comfortable and don't hurt my feet like sometimes sandals do.

Minimal light coverage makeup | Usually every year I wear a full-face of makeup with high coverage products. This year I'm planning on and have been wearing mostly light coverage minimal makeup. Four products that are an essential for me is my Barry M primer, Barry M foundation, Barry M concealer and MUA powder. All of these are light coverage and lightweight. 

Sunglasses | In the past few years, sunglasses have become my favourite. I like wearing them on my face and I like wearing them on my head because they keep my hair out of my face well. The two I've been wearing a ton are my two from Primark. 

Fruit scents | I wear fruity and floral scents a lot throughout the year, however they smell even nicer in the summertime. The three I love during this time of the year are my two Ariana perfumes (ARI and Sweet Like Candy) and my Zoella Letz Spritz body spray. 

Light nail polish | I wear light nail polish all year round, but I love wearing pinks, blues and white the most during the summertime. 

What are your summer essentials?
