Summer complexions are all about a less-is-more approach. Heavy creams, full-coverage foundations and dark lips are replaced with tinted moisturisers, illuminators, sea salt sprays and subtle lip balms to achieve a glowing, sun-kissed look. Here is our round up of beauty products that will keep you looking flawless all summer long.

Tinted moisturiser with SPF
This tinted moisturizer helps add coverage and SPF 30 sun protection without feeling too heavy on the skin. We love the luminous, dewy finish, which makes your skin look amazing. If you have oily skin, be sure to set with powder in your T-zone.
Bronzer and highlighter
Even if you aren’t wearing makeup, adding a touch of bronzer and highlighter illuminates your complexion and adds dimension to the face. Using Light Flex Technology, this powder duo by A-list make up artist Charlotte Tilbury is a must-have for a healthy sun-kissed finish. Team with a touch of mascara and a soft lip colour for an easy, glamorous summer look.
Cheek and lip balm
Enriched with olive oil, avocado oil, vitamin E oil and carrots, this waterproof cheek and lip balm delivers a sheer wash of colour to liven the face. Great for the beach, it’s the perfect pocket sized multi-tasker.
Prep you skin for summer with this vegan body scrub. Made with roasted coffee beans, grape seed oil, coconut oil and jojoba beads, it will buff and polish dry skin as week as target pesky skin conditions like cellulite, stretch marks, eczema and psoriasis.
Summer is hot and sticky so moisturiser can sometimes feel heavy. But, our skin needs hydration. We love this organic body lotion because it has a lightweight feel and fresh citrus scent.
Sea salt spray
Original & Mineral Surf Bomb $34.81
Want beachy waves without stepping out on the beach? Try this sea salt texture spray. With its lightweight nature, it won’t weigh your hair down, giving you sexy tousled waves. The best part? It doesn’t give you that stiffness or crunchiness that some other brands do.
