As the days get long and the nights get longer, beauty products that help you to look hot but stay cool are essential. Add to hit list:

1. MECCA COSMETICA
In A Good Light SPF 30+ Tinted Facial Sunscreen $50
With luminous lightweight coverage like this there’s no excuse not to slip slop slap. A perfect everyday base for beach and beyond, without a hint of oil.

2. MECCA COSMETICA
Body Wonder Tinted Body Moisturiser $50
A little colour goes a long way when a lot of skin is on display. This quick-drying moisturiser gives your natural (or unnatural, let’s fake it not bake it thanks guys) colour an instant boost with a subtle hint of shimmer so you can shine bright like a diamond.

3. KIT COSMETICS
Pomegranate & Pink Grapefruit Handcream $20
This is not your mother’s hand cream. Smells like the whole rainbow of Body Shop soaps and nourishes Instagram-ravaged paws.

4. KIT COSMETICS
Lip Paint $18 Pop colour gloss that won’t melt off. ‘Paint It Melon’ is on high rotation!

6. NARS
Bronzing Powder $55 from Mecca Cosmetica
Layer up ‘Laguna’ like it’s hot. Because it is. This cult favourite is an all-in-wonder – focus on eyes and cheeks for everyday burnish or dust all over for an I-can’t-believe-it’s-not-two-weeks-in-Bali glow.

7. KIT COSMETICS
Limited Edition Nail Strips – Island Hopping $10
Nothing screams summer quite like aquamarine palm trees (if only the real world would oblige…)! If your nail art skills are smudgy at best take the easy way out. Stick, file and aloha!

8. MECCA COSMETICA
Ponytail Perfector Set $32 The best hair accessory since butterfly clips. This limited edition set has black, white and neon options for super schmick ponytails in a flash.
