Skin-Enhancing Tint, $32 | Ami Colé

I generally don’t wear foundation – I’m more of a tinted serum or moisturiser girl – especially in the summer. My current go-to base is the Ami Colé Skin-Enhancing Tint. It’s lightweight and doesn’t clog my pores but still offers enough coverage and a natural finish that’s perfect for daytime.

UnCoverup Concealer, £36 | RMS Beauty

Lovely in the summer months, this truly feels like a second skin. I love it under the eyes or for covering any dark spots. If you’re on the more sensitive side, rest assured it won’t clog your pores or break you out – it’s such a game changer.

Cheek & Lip Tint, $22 | Mad Hippie

Clean beauty products are my go-to and this is one of my favourites. This blush comes in so many fun colours – plus, it’s formulated with jojoba and shea butter, so it feels extra hydrating on the skin.

Stylo Ombre et Contour, £32 | Chanel

This can be used as an eyeshadow or as an eyeliner – personally, I love to use it along the top lash line. It gives my eyes some extra oomph when I want a more defined look.

Lash-Amplifying Mascara, $23.99 | Ami Colé

If you can’t already tell, I’m a big Ami Colé fan and this mascara is my all-time favourite. Historically, I’ve found it hard to find one that didn't irritate my skin; now I’ve found this, I’m loyal. It strikes the perfect balance between definition and volume.

Gua Sculpting Tool, $45 | Lesse

I’m trying to get back to being consistent with my gua sha routine and this product has motivated me to be so. I’ve been a fan of Lesse for some time, so this is just the cherry on top. I love that this tool is stainless steel, so it won't shatter like countless others have in my bathroom.

The Mineral Melt, $29.95 | Dune

I’m a mineral sunscreen girlie, but it’s always hard to find ones that don’t leave a white cast behind on my skin. Dune’s mineral SPF is amazing. It’s non comedogenic and has nutrient-rich ingredients like vitamin E, carrot seed, sunflower extract and rock rose extract.

Aroma Oil, £90 | Costa Brazil

A roll-on oil is one of my favorite ways to wear fragrance. I bring this one everywhere with me. Sometimes I even apply it before going to bed. It’s so divine and I always get compliments when I wear it.
