Summer Beauty Trends: Get The Look

Summer is finally here, so it's time to whip out the bronzer to get that lovely sun-kissed glow!

When you're a busy mom and stuck for time, sometimes you need some reliable and quick products to keep you looking and, most importantly, feeling amazing!

Here's a few of our favourites from the No7 range. 

Let's Get Cheeky

Statement bronzed cheeks are a summer must have, and such an easy look to create, so why not give it a go with a sumptuous shimmer? The No7 Shimmer Palette in Bronze (€18.50) will give you that gorgeous touch of sub, whilst lifting your complexion thanks to a selection of flattering bronze shades.

Top Tip: The beauty of this palette is the different tones included. If you dust the bronzer on, whilst concentrating on your temples and cheekbones, you can create a beautiful sculpted and radiant look. Remember to gently tap the brush before applying and apply sparingly; a little goes a long way! - Make-up artist Sue Brophy

Nails on Fleek

Pastels are huge for summer. So flirty, floral and gorgeous! No7 Gel Look Shine Nail Polish in Candy Apple, €10 is a refreshingly icy mint colour that provides another gorgeous way to wear pastels. The perfect, on-trend nail colour can help you embrace the ice-cream shades of coming summer months, and the durable gel effect will ensure it lasts, meaning you will save time on reapplication and top ups!

Go bold and nail the blue trend, spotted on the catwalks and tipped to be the colour of the season. Channel your perfect seaside look with this blue lagoon inspired long-lasting nail polish with a high shine finish. Complete coverage in just one stroke, this nail polish provides a bright way to wear pastels this summer. No7 Gel Look Shine Nail Polish in Beach Blues, €10

Lip-Smackingly Gorgeous

As we step into summer, protecting your lips from the sun is as important as protecting the rest of your body. Unlike your skin, your lips contain almost no melanin so they really do need that extra care and attention to keep them healthy.

A quick bit of SPF lip care is essential. No7 is launching the new Lovely Lips Lip Balm with SPF15 (€12.50) to nourish and condition lips all day, protecting them against harmful UV rays. You can also wear this underneath one of the four new gorgeous shades of the No7 Lovely Lips Lip Balms (€12.50). These moisturising balms are enriched with mineral oil, beeswax and vitamin E for extra condition and care.

A quick application of this sheer, buildable colour will help you perfect that natural look, a must have for busy moms on the go. Also, choosing more subtle balms in the summer is a better choice than really high-shine lipsticks with little pigmentation that can actually increase sun damage to your lips by attracting UV rays.

No7 Lovely Lips Lip Balms are available in 5 shades - Poppy Petal, Parisian Pink, Deep Raspberry, Coral Blossom and Clear with SPF15.

The No7 Summer collection is available in store and on now.
