Summer Essentials with Sally Hansen and Rimmel London

This summer I’ve been keeping my summer essentials super low key. I have been trying to live more simply whilst also rushing around with some side projects that are taking up my time.

My kit this summer from Rimmel London are must have’s that can work easily into your make up regimen. No fuss.  Affordable and timely.  Maybe it’s time to change it up a tad as we start to segue into Fall Fashion.

Take your arches from skinny and sparse to full and fabulous… without looking fake. Brow expert Rimmel London introduces its new worldwide exclusive Brow This Way Fibre Pencil, the FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND brow-plumping pencil enhanced with nylon fibres.

  • The creamy formula deposits tiny integrated fibres to add realistic volume to sparse areas or lean-looking arches.
  • The highly-pigmented pencil softly fills in brows to give them intense yet believable colour.
  • Brows appear fuller and more impactful – without that harsh, drawn-on effect.

It seems everyone is going the DermaBlade route these days. If this isn’t your jam – grab Brow This Way Eyebrow Pencil with Fibres 003 Dark.  You can get the same full and fabulous eyebrows and wash it off at the end of your day.  No commitment, just chill.

  • Shake the pack to disperse the powder well for optimal use
  • Soft powder and applicator shapes & sculpts brows
  • Intense colour to fill, define & line

I like that the Brow Shake Filling Powder as it shapes my 90’s slim eye brows out a little more. With its addition to the Brow This Way Eyebrow Pencil with Fibres 003 Dark you can get eye brows that will make a statement at your next summer evening on the town.


Scandaleyes Bold Liquid Eyeliner

It maybe the summer, but you can still work the cat eye look on your terms with Scandaleyes Bold Liquid Eyeliner. I’ve been keeping my eyeliner application at a minimum this summer.  I have a few nights out coming up, I’m looking forward to drawing up a more dramatic eye in addition to an undercurrent of a smoky eye.
