It’s been a hot girl summer – but not the kind we like. Instead of strutting around as our best selves, we’ve been melting away and hiding under trees.
But don’t worry. Now the heatwave is (fingers crossed) behind us for this year, why not get your best makeup out and glam up without fear of sweating it all off within the hour?
So grab your best shoes, a glass of bubbly and hit the town with these must-have beauty buys. You won’t regret it.
Mini Me Ochre Floral Tiered Midi Dress
Nobody is celebrating colour more right now than Sainsbury’s Tu, which is having a real moment – its dress sales are up by 180 per cent this season. We love this Mini Me Ochre floral tiered midi dress, which you can snap up now.
Buy it now for just £20 at Sainsbury’s Tu Clothing.
Argan Brow Hero
Ere Perez uses natural pigments that really work. The brand has some truly wild products (wild tomato riche cream, quinoa water foundation) but I love its Argan Brow Hero, which tames brows while promoting growth.
Buy it for £25.20 from Ere Perez.
Innersense’s Quiet Calm Curl Control
Lizzo loves Innersense’s Quiet Calm Curl Control and so do we – it helps eliminate frizz and has been carefully concocted to hydrate, define and defrizz curls with a host of natural (and deliciously scented) ingredients crafted from certified organic plants. Expect luxurious hydration, shine and health.
Buy it for £24 from Cult Beauty.
Boots Dermacare Rosacea Treatment Serum
This Dermacare Rosacea Treatment Serum has been formulated to soothe, strengthen and protect the skin from aggravators.
Buy it for £13.99 from Boots.
Glossier’s No.1 Pencil
Glossier’s No.1 Pencil is a game-changer, depositing a rich, buildable, long-wearing colour with just enough dry-down time to set it into a sharp line, wing it out or blend out for a diffused, smoky-eye effect.
Available in ten shades, from the bold to the classic, once set, the formula is transfer and water-resistant and lasts up to 12 hours.
Buy it for £14 from Glossier.
Bella Freud x Neals Yard Remedies Save The Bees Pollinate Top
If there’s one thing we like more than a Bella Freud top, it’s a Bella Freud top to help a good cause – like this Pollinate number, 100 per cent of the proceeds of which go to the bee-saving campaign run by Anabel Kindersley, the co-owner of Neal’s Yard Remedies.
It focuses on bee conservation and nature-friendly farming initiatives. Find the accompanying petition online.
Buy the T-shirt for £25 at Neals Yard Remedies.
