With summer so close we can almost feel it, it's time to ready that golden glow with a few beauty must-haves, perfect for when the sun isn't always shining! Here we go...


FOR DAY: Keep the overall look fresh and dewy with a BB cream followed by a touch of concealer and a sweep of bronzer, don’t forget to work the colour down the neck.

FOR NIGHT: Enhance your favourite foundation with a little all-over bronzer with built-in shimmer.

FOR DAY: A nude eyeshadow with just a hint of gold running through it will give just the right amount of shimmer without being too dramatic.

Our fave: 360 Gold Rosemance by The Body Shop

FOR NIGHT: For night time, a simple gold eye liner can be understated yet glamorous or take it up a notch with a dab of gold shadow to the inner corners of your eyes finished with jet black liner and mascara.

Our faves: Gold eye definer pencil or 240 Gorgeous Gold shadow by The Body Shop


FOR DAY: A bronzer is a great all rounder and can be used in place of a blush (or eyeshadow) but for if extra colour is what you’re after a flush of persimmon doesn’t hurt either.

Our fave: 10 Florida Sunstar Blush by The Body Shop

FOR NIGHT: If your bronzer isn’t of the shimmering variety, a peach blush with just the slightest hint of a shimmer will do the trick.

Our fave: Shiseido 319 Peach Luminizing Satin Blush by Farmers


FOR DAY: A simple peachy-pink gloss will round out the sunkissed look perfectly or for a fresh pop of colour you can’t go past vibrant coral.

FOR NIGHT: Try a lipstick with a hint of a metallic shimmer to it like rose gold or bronze. Or simply add shimmer to a nude lipstick with a high shine lip gloss.

Our faves: Cocoa Bronze by Elizabeth Arden from Farmers or Lip gloss 15 Cocoa by The Body Shop


FOR DAY: Keep it simple and minimal with a barely-there shade of nude or pearl.

FOR NIGHT: This is the perfect opportunity to accent your sunkissed glow with a gold metallic set of nails.
