12 Simple Steps To The Creating The Perfect Summer Look


Ah, summer. 

The dreamiest of seasons. 

We’re big fans of the summertime here in Lovin Dublin, and so we’ve teamed up with Boots to sort you guys out and act as a check list for every summer essential you could possibly need. 

Going abroad? We’ve got you covered.

Wanna keep your face from sweating off? Don’t you worry, bud.

Want to know how to keep your tan looking peachy? We’ve got your back. Literally. 

We were lucky enough to be able to chat to the gorgeous Aimee Connolly who guided us in the way of dreamy summer looks – starting with how to create the perfect daytime look. 

To start off, Aimee prepped the skin and applied Soltan BB Face Cream in Light/Medium. She then applied No.7 Airbrush Away Foundation in Warm Beige and blended with a brush. She then applied No.7 Perfect Light Loose Powder in Fair lightly over all over the face. 

To add some colour, Aimee swept Vita Liberata Trystal Minerals Bronzer over the tops of cheeks, forehead and chin for a natural look and No.7 Blusher in Peach Velvet lightly on cheekbones. 

Next, Aimee went on to line and fill in the brows with No.7 Beautiful Eyebrow Kit in Light, followed by a quick press and blend of Vita Librata Trystal Minerals Bronzer on the centre of the eyelids. Love a good multi-use product!

To make a little more impact, Aimee then lightly lined the upper lash line with No.7 Stay Perfect Amazing Eyes Eye Liner in Brown followed by swiping a coat of Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara in Black on the lower and upper lash lines.

The lips were kept neutral with a slight outline of No.7 Precision Lip Liner in Soft Blush on the upper and lower lips and a slick of No.7 Lipstick in Honey Bloom. 

The look was finished with just a touch of No.7 High Shine Lip Gloss in Just Peachy to add some shine to the lips. 

Easy, Breezy, Boots-iful. 

And there you have it – the easiest, breeziest summer look in just a few simple steps. 

Now if only we could guarantee summer weather that easily…
