I’m so thrilled to share that I have written my very first magazine feature, and I am really pleased with how it turned out! I shared all of my summer beauty essentials with Absolutely Mama – the magazine for stylish mums.
I have long been a fan of the magazine, Absolutely Mama; it’s a really stylish magazine for London Mums and I think the editorial pieces in it really set it apart from some other parenting magazines. I was delighted to be asked to be a beauty contributor for the May/June magazine to feature my summer beauty essentials.
With the change of the season always comes a change in skincare and what our skin needs. I also tracked down some of the newest beauty releases. If you aren’t able to get hold of a copy of the magazine I thought I would list for you below the Summer Beauty Essentials I included in my first magazine article:
Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum £150 Cult Beauty
Finally a toxin-free active face oil packed full of botanicals which is suitable for pregnant ladies! This stunning serum restores radiance and vitality to tired skin, fights signs of aging & nourishes and protects the face, giving you a glowing reflection you last saw pre children! It’s no wonder it is hailed ‘the face oil to end all face oils’.
The White Company EYE REVIVE £20 thewhitecompany.com
I was SO excited when I heard that The White Company had collaborated with the global skincare experts, Deciem.
This brightening eye cream works to instantly help reduce puffiness, dark circles and give a lovely moisture boost to the delicate skin around the eye – and who doesn’t need all the help they can get when they have little sleep thieves to look after!
Emma Hardie Plump & Glow Hydrating Facial Mist £35 emmahardie.com
This energising, hydrating and radiance boosting fine facial mist spray is perfect for on the go use, providing rejuvenated refreshed skin as well as modifying and balancing out redness. Ideal for hot sunny days out with the children.
Lipstick Queen Mornin’ Sunshine £22 Exclusive to Space NK
Give a woman the right lipstick and she can conquer the world, or at least soft play!! I absolutely love this new Mornin’ Sunshine lipstick which transforms on the lips into a delicious peachy coral which is different on each person!
Dior Pump ‘N’ Volume Mascara £25.50 House Of Fraser
The first of its kind; this innovative mascara has a flexi casing, enabling you to squeeze, soften & warm up the mascara before you apply it to achieve the most voluminous effect. Meaning that no matter how little sleep you got last night, your eyes paint a different story!
I’d really love to write another magazine article, I just loved bringing my writing to a new medium and researching everything for it, and then the best part; seeing it all come together! What are your summer beauty essentials?
