A guide to beach bag beauty essentialsLook sensational on the sand this summer with a perfectly-packed beach bag.

With a bit of careful planning, it’s easy to look effortlessly glamorous in the sunshine.

So take note and read on for our super-savvy guide to beach bag beauty essentials.

Tackle your body and hair in one swoop with Clarins Sun Care Radiant Oil for Body & Hair. Its water and perspiration-resistant formula protects hair and body against drying effects of sun and salt.

Sisley Sunleya is a beach bag essential. The non-greasy formula helps ward off wrinkles and lines caused by exposure to the sun by filtering its rays to allow only the safest amount to penetrate the surface. For foundation, try Clinique’s water resistant, Super Balanced Makeup, which hydrates dry patches, while also keeping T-zone shine at bay. The anti-oxidant rich liquid also helps to minimise fine lines, for a smooth, even complexion. To hold things in place, Clarins Fix Make-Up spray is brilliant. Its cooling effect revives radiance and Vitamin C provides an instant boost.

Protect with a slick of Vaseline Aloe Vera and perfect with Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick which comes in a variety of bright tones, from pinks to corals, for a full, bold matte finish. The texture is creamy yet weightless and the formula stays put, even after eating and drinking.

For those not blessed with naturally dark eyelashes, a long-lasting waterproof mascara is a holiday essential. Benefit BADGal Waterproof Mascara has a pigmented, smudge-proof, long wearing formula that will keep your look bright eyed and bushy tailed all day long.

Add a sunny spritz of Stella McCartney Summer, sit back, relax and order that sunset cocktail.
