3 shop drop: fake a summer glow

Um, how on EARTH is it the last week of August? I know we always say it, but seriously, where did the summer go? I feel like I’ve just got my summer vibes and all of sudden it’s autumn season everywhere. BOO.

On the plus side, summer or no summer, holiday or no holiday, it’s still possible to fake a summer glow. THANK. GOD. I haven’t been away anywhere exciting and with all the rain/cloud/sun/cloud/rain weather we’ve been having in the UK I’m looking rather pasty. Hurrah for makeup! If, like me, you’re wanting to fake (rather than bake) a holiday glow, then get your mitts on this behind-the-scenes beauty kit from 3 of my favourite beauty stores…
