Make sure you prep your skin properly to prevent UV damage, which can occur even when the sky is cloudy. Formula Urban Shield, £12.50 from M&S, is clinically proven to shield the skin and also has an SPF 20. Use a mattifying primer, like this one from New Look, £7.99, under any foundation to give it a longer lasting, more flawless finish, and dust New Look's baked highlighter, £7.99, across your cheekbones and down your nose for a sunkissed glow. Finally, a sweep of blusher with a golden undertone, like this one from Nars at John Lewis, £23, adds a summery flush.
A new scent is a summer treat and Island Sunset £16, by M&S, evokes memories of evening walks on sunbaked beaches. The tropical sea salt and amber mixture is the perfect summer scent. Deepen your holiday tan with a dusting of Benefit Hoola bronzer, £24.50, available at John Lewis, and paint your toes in a perfect punchy coral shade like this one, £7.50 from Autograph at M&S. Heading out after a day on the beach? Forget foundation - just touch up any areas that need it with a light concealer, like this one, £25 from Charlotte Tilbury at John Lewis. Poolside beauty should be low maintenance, so keep the look simple with a slick of waterproof mascara to open up the eyes. This one is £10 from No.7 at Boots and is a summer makeup bag essential. Speaking of which, don't forget to pick up a pretty carry-all to keep your beauty bits together; this one by Zoella Beauty, £7 at Superdrug, is just perfect. A lightweight jelly lipstick like this one from Kiko, £6.90, adds a flush of colour to the mouth whilst moisturising sun parched lips, and at the end of the day, cleanse away any traces of suncream or sea salt with a gentle foaming cleanser - this one from Sukin, £7.99 is available at Boots.
