We had a very prolonged summer this year, until last week when the weather turned from warm and sunny into a wet and windy fall. Right now it looks like fall has come to stay, which I guess is alright at the end of October. Honestly, I can’t complain although I would always prefer summer. At least at home it isn’t too bad because I currently use several beauty products that help me to extend that summer feeling.
I love Korres anyways, but esp. their shower gels that come in so many different scents. The Bergamot Pear shower gel is a light and sweet odor. I only wish that Korres was a little cheaper here. I used to buy it when I went on vacation to the Greek Islands – and man, it is so much cheaper there. The Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Crush Fragrance Mist to my nose is the perfect summer vacation scent. It is a mix of pistachio and salted caramel – and it immediately puts me into a good mood when I spray and smell it. It is like being on a white sand beach under the hot sun. The same feeling applies to the Tekkai Beach Waves Spray St. Barths that not only smells great, but also gives my short hair more defined waves. I don’t know why but in summer my hair is waivy on its own. In the colder seasons I need to help to make that happen.
For my lips I use the Clarins Lip Balm Crayon in Sweet Cherry, which was hyped a few years ago. I still love it, also because it is lightly tinted. As a proper color or rather glitter in this case, I choose my Bite Crème Lip Gloss in Rose Pearl. It definitely shows that I grew up in the 1990s because I am sucker for everything glittery. It also reminds me of summers when the sun plays with the glitter particles. That is more on weekends though – at work I try to look somewhat respectable. Else, I don’t change my makeup routine from season to season, except maybe for a blush in a lighter color. Especially during the week I stick to the tried and true because I don’t have time for experiments in the morning.
What beauty products do you use to extend that summer feeling? Or do you prefer fall anyways?
