The best beauty bits to get you through summer

Between hot weather and limited luggage space, summer is the time to streamline your beauty regime.

We all want versatile products that are easy to use and don’t feel too heavy in heat. Whether exploring outdoors or lounging on the beach, these hero products have what it takes to get the job done whatever the circumstances.

Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser (£3.75)


The perfect solution in humid, sticky weather – this in-shower moisturiser works just like a body lotion but the application happens in the shower instead. To use, simply slather a layer over your skin and wash it away; it leaves behind a smooth residue that keeps skin soft and moisturised all day.

Bourjois Délice de Poudre Gold bronzing powder (£7.99)


We all know spending too much time in the sun is bad for the skin, but few of us can resist the gorgeous look of a sun-kissed glow. This inexpensive bronzer is the perfect way to fake it – it comes in two shades for pale and more olive-toned skins, and creates a lovely, believable tan on the face. Brush it over the temples and cheek bones where the sun would naturally hit your face.

Max Factor False Lash Effect Waterproof Mascara Black (£7.99)


While many of us relish a summer holiday without much makeup, a little mascara is the one thing most women won’t leave the house without. This Max Factor False Effect mascara is just what you need to see you through from day to night – it is strong enough to stay in place without smudging and flaking through swimming, sweating and sunscreen and is buildable enough to give you a more dramatic look in the evenings, too.

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Brow Pencil (£29.50)


Years of plucking them into submission can make brows thin and sparse as we age – thankfully there are some great products on the market that do a great job of filling in the brows and helping to create a natural shape when there is none. Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Brow Pencil is great anytime but really comes into its own in harsher conditions. It’s waterproof, quick and easy to apply, and will stay put until you want it to come off.

Nars Tinted Moisturiser (£29.00)


Light, wearable and dead simple to apply, this Nars Tinted Moisturiser is perfect for summer when a lighter base is in order. The oil-free formula helps obscure the appearance of imperfections and lines, wrinkles and pores, and has included SPF 30, so you have sun protection for the days you’re out and about and haven’t put on sunscreen.

Body Shop Lip Line Fixer (£8.00)


This invisible lip liner is a secret weapon in any makeup kit; it helps extend the wear of your favourite lipsticks and keeps them from running or settling into lines around the mouth.  The Body Shop version is the original and best, making it easy to wear your favourite summer brights without worry.

Toni & Guy Sea Salt Spray (£7.49)


Textured, tousled waves are synonymous with days at the beach, and this sea salt spray is an easy way to pare back your haircare routine on holiday. Simply spritz a few pumps of this through wet hair, shake it out and let it dry – you’ll be left with an effortless undone look that’s perfect for holidays.
