Beauty + the beach
Summer Beauty takes a vacation from heavy creams and powders; this hot weather beauty survival kit has all the beach-worthy essentials you need to stay fresh-faced and stylish in the heat and humidity.
Protect you peepers with oversized, movie-star worthy frames that aren’t just stylish, but also help shield the delicate skin around your eyes from aging UV rays. A glamourous 70s-inspired wide-brimmed hat protects your face and décolleté from the sun (and let’s face it, is much more stylish than a baseball cap) and fits perfectly with this season’s retro-style bathing suits.
Summer’s most sought after beach accessory is bronzed skin. The healthy no-sun way is to go faux, saving skin from the harmful damage of the sun; swipe, brush or slather it on to get the perfect golden glow. For the most natural-looking results, apply bronzing products to the apples of your cheeks, the bridge of your nose, your hairline and chin – anywhere that the sun would naturally kiss.
MELT-PROOF YOUR MAKEUP
Your hot weather beauty survival arsenal should always include a full spectrum sun protection. Avoid heavy powders and matte formulas that just sit on top of your skin and instead choose sheer coverage, cream blushes and nourishing tinted lip balm with SPF and a pop of color for heat-proof staying power.
You can stash all your beach essentials in a chic, colourful tote. Large enough to carry everything you need to stay fresh and pretty all day long.
