Oh England, how you tempt us with you fleeting ten minutes of May sunshine, only to follow up with a light thunderstorm and a sprinkle of hail. The weather might not have us feeling summer-ready, but the beauty world is always here to brighten up even the gloomiest of May days. Fancy prepping your makeup bag for the occasion? Check out these new releases that’ll have you almost tasting the sunshine… 



Quite aptly marketed as ‘summer in a bottle’, this setting spray will not only lock in even the glowiest, dewiest makeup looks, but it’s also oil free and blended with the uplifting scent of white tea of Bali. 




New releases from VB Beauty promise chic packaging and hard-working formulas. This bronzing brick is home to two smooth powders that can be blended together, or used separately to create the perfect sun-kissed glow.

This limited edition scent, inspired by the making of traditional British Marmalade (think orange peel simmering on a stove mixed with an open-window light summer breeze) is a delicate balance of citrus and woody cashmere. If you’re extra enough to wear a specific scent for a picnic in a park, we recommend this one. 

GLOSSIER – Ultra-Lip

Promising the shine and glisten of a gloss, with the nourishment and moisture qualities of a balm, this hybrid solves the ‘wind-blowing-hair-stuck-to-lips’ situation, whilst also offering protection from flaking in the heat. Available in nine shades – it’s a double tick from us.
