SUM­MER IS THE TIME TO LET YOUR TRUE BEAUTY SHINE. GLOW FROM THE IN­SIDE OUT WITH OUR TOP 15 BEST BUYS FOR THE SEA­SON

Food - - Contents -

Sum­mer calls for a less-is-more ap­proach to beauty – think bare­lythere makeup, fresh and fruity fra­grances and a nat­u­ral, sun-kissed com­plex­ion that ra­di­ates. Com­bine a sun­safe skin­care rou­tine with a bit of pam­per­ing for the per­fect beachy glow, and add a low-main­te­nance makeup regime to the mix for more time on the beach and less in front of the mir­ror. Here are our favourite 15 prod­ucts for an easy, breezy sum­mer­time look that won’t break the bank.

Sun­screen 1 CANCER SO­CI­ETY SUN­BLOCK LO­TION SPF50+, RRP $18, 400ML

BB Cream

3 GAR­NIER MIR­A­CLE SKIN PERFECTOR BB CREAM, RRP $15, 50ML
