The summer is coming to an end and fall is around the corner. The change of seasons also brings with it new beauty trends and products to use. For me this summer was all about glowy and bronzy skin, warm toned eyes and nude lips. There are a few products that I have been absolutely loving during this summer to achieve the look I’ve been wearing everyday. So to close off the summer of 2017, I’m going to share with you my end of summer beauty favorites. These are all products that I have been using loads during the summer time, but will still be using them during the transition to fall. Hope you enjoy!

Becca Glow On The Go

I’ve been using the Becca liquid and powder highlighter in the color ‘Opal’ almost every single day ever since I got this. This is my favorite highlighter in my collection at the moment because it’s really intense and gives you a beautiful natural glow. Something that I’ve been loving doing is applying this highlighter in the inner corner of my eyes. This makes you instantly look so much more awake and makes your eyes look a lot bigger. If you want to read a bit more about this set of two Becca products, you can check out this Sephora Haul in which I also wrote about it.

Benefit Hoola

This bronzer is one of my all-time favorites and I’ve been using it loads this particular summer. I use it to bronze up my face and do some contouring, but I don’t only use it as a ‘face’ makeup product. Applying this bronzer as an eyeshadow gives the most beautiful warm-toned eye look and I’ve been doing this every single day recently. It’s also a really good tip if you’re traveling a lot, just use bronzer as eyeshadow, this way you never have to bring extra eyeshadows with you. The Hoola bronzer is the perfect color to create a bronzy look on the eyes, and it blends really easily.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

I have this mascara in a mini size which is one of the reasons why I’ve been using it a lot during the summer. I always take this mascara with me when I go traveling to save some space in my makeup bag. This made me rediscover how much I love this mascara. It’s a really good volumizing mascara and makes my lashes look great. Not much else to say about this mascara, I think we all know it’s pretty great by now and I’ve been loving it recently.

Nars Orgasm

This Nars blush is very much talked about and it’s not for no reason. The color of it is absolutely stunning and even though it’s pretty pricy, it’s definitely worth the money. It’s a super pretty almost rose gold color and gives the skin a beautiful glow. Also, I really love the Nars packaging so I’ve also been using it a lot in my Instagram photos. All in all, definitely a favorite of this summer and probably still a favorite the upcoming colder months.

Rimmel London by Kate Lipstick

I am a nude lipstick lover and I have way too many of them, so I typically stick to using my all time favorites like MAC ‘Honeylove’ or ‘Velvet Teddy’. However having so many nude lipsticks and never using them is also kind of a waste so I decided to try some colors that I didn’t use for a while and fell in love with this Rimmel by Kate lipstick in the color ‘Boho Nude’. I love this color because it has a very warm undertone. It’s also more onto the brown side which I personally really like. And on top of this, it has the most beautiful rose gold packaging.

L’oreal Brow Artist Plumper

Brows are very important to me, especially during summer when I keep the rest of my makeup a bit more minimal. I always fill in my brows with some brow powder, but what really makes the difference is applying a brow gel on top of it. I think this l’oreal one is really great as it lasts all day, shapes the brow and makes them a bit darker too. It’s also really affordable which is always a plus!

What are your end of summer beauty favorites?
