SS15 essentials


The warmer months are finally rolling in and Spring has made a mighty return. Therefore, I felt it was only right to show you a few pieces that I know I will be reaching for throughout SS15.
For me in the warmer months, it's all about glowing skin and brighter colours. 


My foundation of choice throughout Spring and Summer is definitely going to be the NARS Sheer Glow foundation. I have the shade mont blanc and it is almost a perfect match for me. The reason I say 'almost', is that when I first apply it to my skin it appears slightly darker than my natural skin tone, but once I have buffed it into my skin it blends in with my skin tone and creates a flawless, glowing finish.
To add some sheen to the high points of my face, I will be using the MAC mineralize skinfinish in the shade soft & gentle. I'm sure you've already heard many many bloggers talking about this, so I'll keep it short and sweet. This highlighter is a beautiful golden shimmer that illuminates the skin instantly. I use this on the tops of my cheekbones, my brow bone and my collar bones to make them more prominent.
Moving slightly away from my usual nude lipsticks, I think this Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in the shade 32 will be getting a lot of use. It is a beautiful peachy orange shade that I think will suit mostly all skin tones. Since I'm quite pale I have just been patting the lipstick on and smoothing it out with my finger instead of applying it properly, however when I have more of a tan in the summer I will be applying it fully. 


Lastly, this is the fashion item that I know I will be reaching for constantly throughout SS15. I purchased this from a website called Aliexpress, which is a website where retailers sell a vast variety of items such as fashion, beauty and even home and garden items. The playsuit is made of a moderately sheer white fabric that has an elastic waist, so that it clings to your figure nicely. It also has a lace fringe detailing on the bottom edging that rises up to the very top of your thigh. This is most definitely a summer playsuit and I think it will be perfect for my Italy trip in July. The best part about it is, it was actually really cheap! If you're looking for amazing summer items but you're on a budget, I would definitely recommend this website!
What are your SS15 must haves?
