Summer beauty must haves 2020

I think it's fair to say we're in summer now, right? With that in mind I wanted to share some of my current beauty must haves for summer 2020 in terms of skincare, make up and more. Here you go!

I've been loving the Soap & Glory Righteous Butter lately - but the shimmery version, which I think is a Christmas exclusive sadly. However, I think any shimmery body butter or lotion is amazing for summer because when the sun hits you're truly glowing. Sanctuary do a shimmer luxe body butter which looks lovely, and you could absolutely pop a few drops of liquid highlighter into a normal body butter and get a similar effect...


In terms of face make-up, I've been going for the bare minimum and literally just doing brows and mascara as well as a bit of sparkle. And this sparkle comes in the form of the Too Faced Liquid Eyeshadow in Guava Glitz*, which has amazing lasting power and just looks so pretty. I also pop some glitter on the lips, and lately I've been loving the Pixi x Chloe Morello Lip Icing* in the shade Cake, which is soooo pretty!

If I do opt for proper make up, I'd say a summer must have for me is the iT Cosmetics CC+ Cream*, which has decent coverage (I get really red in the summer) AND has SPF 50. It sits so well on the skin and I generally just love this product in all its finishes. Applied with a damp beauty sponge (the Olivia Hale ones you can buy in Home Bargains are the best, as it goes) this looks amazing. 


For skincare, two summer beauty must haves for me are the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Clay Mask* - for soaking up and excess oils/sweat etc - and the Body Shop Skin Defence, again with SPF 50+. This feels amazing on the skin and obviously protects a lot!

So there's my summer beauty must haves for 2020 - I'm obsessed with all of them. These are obviously just a fraction of the beauty products I'm using right now (check out my summer skincare routine) but they're products I won't be without this summer...
