Favourite bronzer for summer?
To be honest, I haven’t found a bronzer that is my Holy Grail bronzer. Still on the lookout for that one, I’m contemplating getting the Clarins Splendours Bronzer when it arrives in South Africa.
You’re relaxing in a hammock, on a tropical island. What are you sipping on?
Ooooh, definitely a Piña Colada!
Favourite summer lip product?
Hhhhmmm tough one, definitely a gloss. Probably any of the NYX Butter Gloss lipglosses (mentioned in this blog post), but if I had to choose just one, I would probably choose Peaches & Cream.
Pool or Beach?
Beach. But only because it probably means I’m on holiday somewhere. I’m not someone who likes tanning (be it by the pool or beach), I also have an intense fear of swimming in the ocean. I do, however, love the sound and smell of the ocean.
Summer = crazy hair! What’s your must-have styling product?
Moroccanoil Treatment Oil in Light.
Sun bathing or fake tan?
Fake tan. I don’t like tanning in the sun but I also don’t fake tan religiously. This Summer, however, I really want to try out various self tanners because I’m way too pale at the moment.
Favourite summer nail polish?
Another tough one! I could never choose… If I absolutely HAD to choose, then I would probably go with Essie Fiji but only because it’s such a universal shade and can be worn with any outfit / accessories. I think if I chose a specific colour like a turquoise or purple shade, then I would get tired of it too soon.
Any summer traditions?
No traditions really… Eat lots of ice lollies?
Favourite summer scent?
YSL Baby Doll – it’s so fresh and girly.
Favourite BBQ food?
In South Africa we call it braai food. Lemon, garlic & rosemary marinated lamb chops, some type of potato bake (or potato salad), definitely a green salad, some steamed mealies and a fruit salad for dessert.
What’s your favourite summer-proof product?
A BB cream or mineral foundation. I use a BB cream during those times when it gets extremely hot here in South Africa. I recently discovered the magic of a mineral foundation (review here) and I know it’s going to be a firm favourite this season. A powder foundation gives enough coverage with the added benefit of being somewhat sweat-proof. On those above-30-degrees-celsius days I honestly can’t be bothered applying a heavy foundation that is 1. only going to slide around on my face, and 2. cake up.
Any summer vacation plans this year?
We are on holiday in Cape Town as you are reading this! And then a bit later in the year (or even perhaps in the new year) we will go to Karkloof for a weekend away.
I tag anyone who is interesting in doing this tag!
