Well hello July, aren’t you a hottie.

This month’s beauty picks look a little something like this; simple, easy, everyday makeup and accessories that have been helping me survive through the heat (excluding my phone, which somehow made it into the mix!).

I’ve handpicked a select few favourites which I’m loving right now and here they are.

& Other Stories - Punk Bouquet Hand Cream - Did you know & Other Stories do a beauty range? Neither did I until recently and I absolutely love this. I found it at ASOS, a delightfully non-greasy consistency without that overpowering scent you find with a lot of hand-creams - woop! It comes out ever so slightly pink, it’s very cool. I’m slowly edging toward making a clothing purchase from & Other Stories, so I thought I’d start with beauty first and work my way up.

Autograph at Marks & Spencer - Sheer Radiance Perfume - This perfume, oh this perfume. It has a really delicate, feminine fragrance and this 30ml bottle is just perfect for going everywhere I go. I use sparingly, because I adore it that much and am not ready to let it go any time soon and you really don’t need that much either.

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue (SPF30+) & barePro Longwear Eyeshadow Stick - Ahhh bareMinerals, where would I be without you? The Complexion Rescue Defense has quite literally saved my skin on so many occasions and the barePro longwear eyeshadow stays on me all day! I have a natural flush to my skin and redness is often a big old problem for me - made even worse in hot weather or when ‘m nervous. It helps keep my skin balanced and I’m less conscious about my skin if I’ve used this. It’s also one of the biggest contributors to skin compliments - thank you CRD!

Illamasqua Lipstick - Semi Matte - A cruelty free lipstick is a must-have any any beauty bag and Illamasqua fits the bill every time. I would highly recommend the Illamasqua lipsticks because they are beautifully shiny with a semi-matte finish, so you get that lovely nourishment to the lips as well as long lasting colour.

Neom Organics De-Stress Rollerball - The ultimate wellbeing boost. You know that feeling of comfort you get with certain products, I get that exact feeling with this. A really handy rollerball which came with the Neom DeStress kit. Essential ingredients like lavender and jasmine work on the pulse points to just bring your mind back into the present for a bit.
