Stand out on the sand with eyes and nails inspired by tropical marine life. Protect eyes first using Carita’s Protecting and Correcting Eye Contour Suncare SPF15, $47. Then choose a powder eyeshadow rather than a cream as it won’t melt in the heat – Lancome’s Colour Design Sensational Effects Eye Shadow in Aloha Blue, $18, is perfect for this look – and follow up with three coats of L’Oreal’s new waterproof Volume Shocking Effect Mascara in black, $18, to set off the colour. Finally, choose a sunshine-yellow nail polish painted over a base of white to brighten the colour. Try cream puff and Hot Pop Yellow from Creative Nail Design, $17each.
Don’t save red lipstick for the evening when it can look so chic under the sun. ‘Neatly apply YSL’s Rouge Pure lipstick in 120, SPF 8, $23, with a lip brush and blot with a tissue before re-applying for a long-lasting finish. Keep other make-up to a minimum, using a bronzing powder to define eye sockets and cheekbones – try Dior’s new Bronze Poudre de Soliel in Bronze Tan, $29, or Guerlain’s Terracotta Sheer Bronzing Powder, $35, which comes in Blonde and Brunette shades.’
