Thank goodness it’s nearly summer, and I’m not just talking about the fact I’m finally able to wear my dresses. It’s the perfect season for rocking wavy beach hair and a golden glow to match. And this look is the easiest to pull off. Achieving the beach kissed look doesn’t take much effort, but you need to be using the right products. Just in case you’re not, I’ll clue you in:

For when the sun sets:

Herbivore Botanicals After Sun Skin Soothing Aloe Mist available here

If there’s one thing we all need to be careful of this time of year is protecting our skin from the sun, and Herbivore is probably the best for this. As it is a vegan-friendly formula and consisting purely of aloe, trust your skin will be properly taken care of! Buy yours here


Be bold in your own skin:

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer available here

This year girls everywhere are going bare, and it’s all thanks to Laura Mercier. This tinted foundation is perfect. Those days where I can’t be bothered to do a full face of make-up, I go au naturel with this. It even has SPF 20, which means it protects you from the sun, works as a moisturizer and a foundation! Three for the price of one! Not bad! Buy yours here.

A hint of glow:

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow available here

I keep raving about this product because there’s a lot to rave about. It’s the only highlighter I will ever use again, Charlotte Tilbury has literally overtaken my life! For the perfect subtle bronzed glow this summer, only trust Charlotte, because she will have your back! Trust me. Buy yours here.

Better than… falsies:

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara available here

This mascara is my life! I honestly couldn’t live without it, gosh knows what my lashes looked like before. Eyes to me is the most important part of your look, so when it comes to mascara, I have very high expectations. It’s the only mascara that has given me such volume! Buy yours here.

Set your makeup!

Supergoop! Defense Mist Setting Spray available here.

This genius setting spray is a serious revelation, it’ll keep your makeup in place (so it won’t be sliding down your face) and it’s infused with SPF 25 sunscreen, so you’ll stay protected all day. Spritzing sunscreen on your face is always a hassle, especially when it ruins your perfect mascara, so get this and you’ll never have that trouble again. Buy it here.

Mermaid hair:

Captain Blakenship Mermaid Sea Salt Hair Spray available here

We all want that natural, wavy beach hair and we all know we don’t get it from swimming in the ocean, that’s for sure! So instead, I rely on this hair spray to do all the fussing for me. Aloe Vera will keep moisture locked into your hair, and will also create light wave and volume! You’ll be the hottest babe on the beach! Buy yours here.
