Beauty On The Beach

The weather men say this week looks to be the beginning of summer as we look to face warmer temperate than Greece and Turkey.

With that in mind, now seems like a good time to post my Summer Holiday Beauty Tips.

Whether you have a holiday abroad to look forward to or not, check out what’s hot this summer and how to stay glam in the sun.

My first summer post is all about beach-worthy beauty trends for summer 2012.

  •  This summer think feminine, fun and flirtatious when it comes to beauty. Luminous, fresh skin is in and matte is out. Ditch the cakey powder and opt for a tinted moisturiser or BB cream for a touch of coverage without the heavy look. 

Estee Lauder's Daywear Anti-oxidant BB Creme (£32) is perfect and offers an SPF of 35 to protect your skin from the suns harsh rays.

  •   Eyes find themselves framed by well defined brows (put your tweezers away now!) If you aren’t blessed with naturally bushy brows try using  RapidBrow (£37) for 2 months before you head off. 
 Its fortifying proteins help to stimulate peptides and its unique ingredients help to restore, condition and repair the appearance of eyebrows.

  • Pastels are big this S/S and The Body Shop have just the eye palette for you. 

Their new shimmer cube palette (£16) comes with 4 stunning lilac and pink shades guaranteed to get you noticed for all the right reasons.
  •  Bronzer is a big deal any time of the year but it’s in summer that it really comes into its own. 
 A little bronzer can work wonders to help create the illusion of sun-kissed skin but it can also help highlight and contour your own tan.  Use a matte bronzer like Benefit’s Hoola (£23.50) for a more natural, day 
look or Urban Decay’s Baked Bronzer in Gilded (£20) for a sexy night time shimmer.

  •    Make sure you are seen rocking the one shade that will reign supreme this summer. 


From fingers and toes to cheeks and lips, it is the colour of the summer yet again. 

Try Rimmel London Pro Nail Polish (£4.59) in Coral Romance for your talons or Benefit’s chachatint  (£24.50) for your cheeks.

  • Beachy hair will always be a winning summer look. Think loose, beachy waves, relaxed tresses and pretty plaits. 
 Inject some volume into your locks with a bit of backcombing and add texture with salt water spray  like  Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray (£19.50) which holds your waves all day long.


  1. Great tips! the benetint looks so nice! I agree, summer should be about ditching all those cakey powders and go for something light like BB cream.
