lovely NZ blogger Karen of Mumpty Style invited me to participate in a Summer Essentials tag train! Karen was inspired by  The World of COS and her Winter Essentials Tag- If you want to see her original post, click here and Mumpty Styles post here .  Without further ado…my summer essentials!

1) What is your ultimate summer party season lip product?

I’m loving a great neutral lip at the moment , perfect with a smokey eye and making slender lips look fuller! My current favorite is NARS Lip Gloss – Dolce Vita which is a lovely dusty Rose colour in a matt finish.


2) What is your essential product for summer?

I’m focused on keeping my skin protected from the sun so have been reaching for my Nuetrogena spf 60 daily sunscreen. It has been formulated for sensitive skin and sits well under my daily makeup.
