Strawberry mojitos are a must, long and warm afternoons are back, iced coffees over lattes and day trips to the beach – summer is almost here!
We’ve got the must-know beauty bites to have you looking and feeling great for the sunny season. So here are six of our go-to glamour tips for the warmer days ahead.
1. Boost your bronze

Always opt for a faux-glow and get golden with a spray tan instead of the sun. To keep your colour for longer, layer on a tan-extending product to prevent fading.
Before you head out for the night, try a body lotion with a hint of shimmer on the centre of your legs to create the illusion of extra length!
And where better to get that perfect glow than with LuxIT? (Go on and book one…you know you want to)
2. Protect and reflect
Slip, slop, slap is a little passé – and with so many high tech sunscreen formulas on the market, sun protection comes with even more skin benefits.
Opt for a mineral, zinc-based sunscreen for oily skin, and check for formulations that include other antioxidants like liquorice extract, niacinamide or green tea for a powerful combination.
3. Beauty in a blink
Speed-up your summer beauty routine with a semi-permanent lash tint in place of your mascara, with the added benefit of being completely waterproof for impromptu pool days!
For extra oomph, a lash perm will lift and curl for photo-ready lashes from the minute you wake up.
4. Nail the nude
There’s nothing like a timeless nude manicure to take you from day to night, office to beach, so why not spice up your neutrals and play around with a negative space manicure (think a clear gloss base and neutral tip detail!)
And who’s got time to do their own manicure when LuxIT can do it for you? Get booking woman!
5. Lip service
While the Kylie Jenner matte lip reigns supreme, stay ahead of the curve with a high-gloss finish lip balm – hydrating, easy to re-apply and can be layered over your favourite lip shades.
6. Roll with it
Switch up your summer fragrance with a purse-friendly rollerball version of your favourite or try something new in a smaller size (and less commitment)!
Keep an eye out for fragrance trial-kits at the beauty counter to sample more at a fraction of the cost.
