Blue summer beauty

By Anna Maria Karstens

Blue is our coolest colour association with summer. Think of turquoise stones on tanned skin, or azure blue coast lines and clear blue skies. Could this be the reason that this summer’s coolest beauty items come in different hues of blue?

Here is IRMA’s selection of blue beauty musts that cool you down, enhance your beach tan or just make you dream of a long summer day.

Tom Ford – Neroli Portofino

Named after the Italian Riviera, this scent reminds me of the area’s cool breezes, clear water and radiant colours with its citrus and floral notes and amber undertones.

Bumble & Bumble – Surf Foam Spray

Bring a little bit of salt to your hair every day and create an elevated, polished blow dry with this part mousse, part salt spray. While making your hair look flawless and sculpted, it will protect it from the drying effects of the sun on your next beach day.

Collistar – Anticellulite Slimming Superconcentrate Night

What better way to fight the ‘orange peel’ effect and reshape your body than in your sleep? This concentrate is going to work wonders thanks to the high salt concentration and the exclusive Cell-Nocturne System. To make it even more effective, try cooling it in the fridge before applying it to your skin.

Methode Jeanne Piaubert – Hydro Lagon

Leave your skin hydrated, soft and delightfully scented with this skin-quenching enhancer for the body bi-phase. Its floral and fruity scent will send you right to paradise.

Dior – Hydra Life

How many times have we heard that hydration is everything? Make sure to stick to this essential beauty rule with Dior Hydra Life. The fresh formulas help activate the skin’s natural defenses, leaving the skin naturally beautiful.

Benefit – they’re real

This lengthening, curling and volumizing mascara is going to reveal lashes you never even knew you had. Bring some colour into your life with the blue shade, emphasizing your de-stressed summer eyes.
