A hydrating gel cream which acts a moisturiser, foundation and SPF in one which is essential for leaving more room in your suitcase. It has SPF 30 to keep your skin protected while giving you a natural radiant glow. The product is SO lightweight; it feels like you are wearing no makeup at all while providing the right amount of coverage of any spots or redness. It’s £29.00, but the product will last for ages as a little goes a long way. The perfect addition for a long day at the beach.
If you are looking for a quick and easy way to achieve chiselled cheekbones and a slim nose, this cream to powder contour stick will be your best friend. It makes it super easy to get the bronzed look even if you have no skill when it comes to makeup application. I think a bronzed contour when in the sunshine is the most beautiful evening look, and the dome tip makes for a quick and easy application while being super easy to blend.
SO fragrance has had a significant glow-up since we all used to use it in year 11 after P.E and their summer escape range is a must-have. Miami vibes are my personal favourite and are a significant dupe for Hollister fragrances at less than half the price. The scents are inspired by the heat of the sun, feel of the sand and smell of the ocean breeze and will leave you smelling and feeling fresh all summer.
You cannot beat a red/coral nail polish on holiday (in my opinion), and Essie is always the brand I reach for, as they tend to last the longest without chipping. Pair with a top coat for a beautiful mani which will make your outfit’s look even more dreamy.
Exfoliation is so important in the warmer months to prevent the skin from drying out. The whole Palmers coconut range is perfect for summer, but the body scrub is excellent for keeping your tan looking it’s best and sloughing off that dead skin that has built up over winter. An essential for keeping your skin looking great this year.
A duo of blush and highlight that perfectly matched together to create a dreamy look on your skin. By having two products in one, you are saving room in your suitcase, and the cream formula increases the intensity giving you a gorgeous healthy glow. Creamy but not greasy.
