Divaly Recommends – Summer Must Haves!

Summer’s here with a bang and it’s leaving us feeling hot hot hot!!! Since we’re girls on the go, Vasudha and I always believe in one thing – which is being prepared!! So we’re going to share some of our summer must haves, which are great to carry with you!
1. Clarins – UV Plus HP SPF40 Day Screen
The most important product you need to have with you this summer *drumroll please* is SUNSCREEN!!! I cannot tell you how important it is. I have tried many different brands and this by far is the best that I’ve come across – it’s light, not oily, gives you a matte and natural finish. A little goes a long way, just a drop or two with your moisturizer and then your regular make-up routine. I especially love that It doesn’t have a cakey white layer that some sunscreens have. You don’t need to necessarily buy Clarins, find a brand that works for you and your skintone but never ever leave the house without sunscreen. Depending on where you live and how much you will be in the sun, use anywhere from SPF 15 – 50 but don’t forget to include this! It will save you from pigmentation, spotting and damaging your skin!

2. Boots – Cucumber Cleansing Wipes
Another staple product that’s always with me, if you’re out in the sun a lot and feel like you need to cleanse up, these definitely work for me and are light on the skin.  These cool cucumber wipes refresh me everytime. They are also a cheap, gentle yet effective way to remove your make up. These are great to keep in your bag and perfect for travel.

3. Fa Eau De Cologne Body Splash
Most of us remember using Fa deodorant while growing up. I used to love the Caribbean Lime and Aqua. They have now come up with a body splash, which is perfect for some respite in this heat!! They come in different scents – these are especially great after a shower to freshen up or to keep in your bag for a little freshening up!

4. Sephora – Express Deodorant Wipes
Don’t you always hate to carry a bulky deodorant or roll on bottle in your bag? It takes SO much space and can sometimes be a mess! I’ve found an awesome alternative  – deodorant wipes! These are perfect to slip into your bag. Ideal for cleaning and refreshing and ensures that sweat doesn’t spoil your day!!

Let’s get ready for that “pout” !!

We’re all set for the festive season, we’ve started ticking off those items from our Christmas and New Year shopping lists. In the final post to our must have makeup buys this festive season, we cover lipstick shades, shades that can be paired with Divaly’s recommendations for eyeshadows and blushes. To be honest, choosing the lipstick shades were the hardest, only 3 shades from all the different reds, pinks, browns, nudes, maroons, corals, plums, etc.etc. But staying true to our theme I have narrowed down to those 3 shades that will give you that extra pop of colour you need for that pretty pout and the endless selfies that one needs to take for the festive season ;-)…

For this post, I have chosen :

1. Brooklyn by Buxom – This is a beautiful mauve matte shade. Boy what can I tell you about this lipstick, I happened to come across this while visiting family in Canada at one of the Sephora outlets and it has been my favourite ever since. Buxom may not be familiar to many people, at least it wasn’t to me and I’m so glad I came across this brand. This can be used as a lip liner, as a lipstick –  it has a creamy velvet-matte texture and it also subtly plumps up your lips. You can actually feel the slight tingling, cooling sensation. Even though this lipstick is on the darker side, it can literally be worn with any outfit. You could even use it as a base and add mix another shade or just add a little gloss and you are good to go.

2. Lustering by M.A.C – This is a lovely watermelon pink in a lustre finish. This is a pretty lightweight lipstick and and gives a nice glossy finish. This is also great to mix with other shades but if you don’t want to go too dark and want a slight pop of colour this is a really neat shade. If you dab on a little, it would almost look like a gloss!

3. Red wine by Korres – For all those who love their red shades of lipstick, this is a winner and an absolute must have in your makeup bag. This is a great colour for those who normally aren’t sure what red to start out with. It has great staying power and can be intensified depending on how much you apply. Introduced to me by my best friend Divya, I can never forget how obsessed we were with this colour!!
