Sparkly Beauty Trends Spring / Summer 2017
If there’s one thing we learnt from the spring / summer 2017 fashion shows in New York, Milan, Paris and London, it’s that sparkly beauty trends are making a huge comeback.
What do an Affogato and a Sparkly Eyeshadow palette have in common?
I write this whilst sipping on a flavourful Italian Affogato. It’s late afternoon and to me, this beauty of a drink just goes hand in hand with my idea of summer sparkle. You don’t know what an Affogato is? It’s neither coffee nor ice-cream – but a delicious combination of both.
Anyone who knows me, knows that ice cream is my all-time favourite dessert. After the name itself – The word affogato means “drowned” in Italian. Essentially I am currently drowning a VERY large chunk of delicious vanilla ice-cream in small cup of coffee.
Now that we talked about a summer essentials that make you sparkle from the inside, let’s move to my summer beauty file.
Get ready for a lesson in beautifying your feet. This is one sparkle routine you don’t want to miss.
Smitten with freckles
Summery, cute, cheeky. It’s official now, sunspots are the new cool sparkly beauty trend and a summer must-have.
With more and more beauty brands celebrating natural beauty and ‘less is more’, it’s time to shine a light on my favourite sparkle – the freckle.
