Summertime is vacation time – even for your skin. However, this does not mean that you have to stop wearing make up. As you know, I always try to keep my make up light and natural, and I just found the 5 best products to do so this summer with the new Givenchy African Light 2018 Collection!
The best beauty move to make this summer is to go for a glowy skin and glossy lips.
The step number 1, also the step I don’t miss under any circumstances especially in Summer is to prep my skin with Sunscreen. For this I either use the CHANEL UV ESSENTIAL SPF 50 or the SHISEIDO WETFORCE SPF 50. They both act as moisturiser and help me to protect my skin against UV. This way I prevent skin diseases such as skin cancer and wrinkling!
Then I always love to wear powder as my foundation so I was really glad to get the new ‘Poudre Bonne Mine’ (02) from Givenchy. After that I apply the new Bouncy Highlighter ( No.1 African Light Gold) from the Givenchy new African Light Collection. The texture is like no other, it’s truly a brand new sensory experience. The scent is perfect, and the formula contains coconut water & macadamia nut oil extract. I also like the fact there is no paraben, nano-ingredient nor mineral oil which is a big step in the beauty industry! Knowing how much I love highlighters I feel much safer using this one! You can use it on to the eyelids, cheekbone and upper lip.
The next step would be moving on to my cheeks to give them a glow. Givenchy’s new Limited Edition Prisme Blush (No.9 African Earth) allows me to gently warm my complexion with its intense “earthy” color and gives such an impressive light finish with its two tones.
As you know I have green eyes, so I was a bit unsure about this Khôl Couture Waterproof khaki shade, but I ended up finding the result really appealing and I can already tell I won’t be wearing black this summer!
I am not one to try new stuff often, I am not afraid of change but surely if something works for me I rarely take the risk to change a thing. This only applies to make up! Aha
I don’t regret trying this Khôl (No.8 African Bronze) and find it blends perfectly with the Prisme Blush that I also applied as an eyeshadow.
The last step and also the most important one is to add some color to my lips. When I was younger I used to wear Red matte lipsticks a lot, but somehow with the years I changed and now only wear nude ones, or brown-ish colors… I love to work my eyes more and keep my lipstick minimal this way. I always look for something hydrating, so I’ve been using the Rouge Interdit Vinyl in Moka Renversant for two years now. I am really into this new Limited Edition in shade No.17 African Tangerine because it adds this extra light on the lips, fully hydrates them and gives a perfect glossy finish to my lips. Its a golden brownish red that emanates radiance and energy.

As far as I’m concerned, I feel like this coveted capsule collection doesn’t disappoint. With just 5 products you have the perfect essentials to achieve the perfect Summer Look in no time. I would love for a brand to create a black mascara with gold shimmer though… This would have truly been perfect!
I hope this inspired you to get your hands on this vibrant couture collection! If so, let me know on Instagram!
