Chances are that you probably already know someone who’s got in early, had their summer holiday to Ibiza and is currently sporting that tanned, healthy-looking glow that makes you sick to the stomach with envy. It’s why we’re high fiving Topshop (again!) who have come to the rescue with their gorgeous summer make-up collection, on sale today.
Adding another shade to their fantastic highlighter line-up, the new Mother of Pearl tone gives skin a radiant, reflective finish and makes cheekbones look standout and sunkissed in 30 seconds (we’ve timed it!). Use the biggest brush you can find to apply it and just swirl it over cheeks.
Add one of the shimmering eye shadows over your lids – Shangri-La, an intense rose gold, is our ultimate fave – and you’ve just nailed that natural, nonchalent summer make-up stylee that all the A-listers rock so effortlessly. Think Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Georgia May Jagger post pool party.
And if you can’t wait to get your mitts on a glow stick, we’ve found the perfect compensation til you hit the party strip on your hols. Topshop’s Glow Stick in Heat is a giant crayon style skin enhancer that should be a go-to for everyone trying out the strobing beauty trend.
A creamy metallic formula that lights up your best bits, you can use it on your face and body for instant sunbeam beauty. Adapting to every skintone, stripe it on top of cheekbones, the inside of arms and down the middle of your shins and wait for the light to reflect off your skin. Ringing in at £10 it’s a lot less pricey than a flight to Eivissa too!
See, you really don’t need beach time to get Baywatch bronzed!
