Best Beauty Buys - Summer 2013

This week, readers, I would like to share with you an edited round-up of my personal favourite beauty products that have saved my make-up from melting and the ones that have put a summer smile on my face.
In very hot heat, it only takes a short walk to the station and a stuffy tube ride to have all your make-up artistry end up on your chin. Not a good look. Stop this from happening with a little before and after preparation. I was introduced to Elemis Pro-Radiance Flash Balm via Red Magazine's gift giveaway this summer. Applied before your usual foundation, it gives a glowing base that stays put all day long, for added staying power swipe over Chantecaille's Protection Naturelle to set your make-up. Mid- afternoon touch-ups with this handy brush tube will keep you looking fresh and glowing until evening. Looking for an eye-pencil that doesn't smudge and never ends up anywhere else apart from where you applied it? Then Nars Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner is the one for you.
I believe every season one should always treat themselves to a luxury beauty product - why? Because you are worth it. This summer, Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino Body Oil was what I treated myself to. After spending a hot day by the pool, it's the perfect 2-1 product after a cooling shower. The luxurious quality oil moisturises, whilst the summer fragrance, reminiscent of hot sunny days and nights in the Italian Riviera, lightly scents the skin without any need for spritzing a fragrance which can feel heavy on a hot day.
