HOW TO BE BEACH BODY READY
Beauty Stylist Amy Connolly shares her expert product recommendations for holiday body care...
Clarins - Sun Care Cream High Protection UVB/UVA 30 125mls
This is one of my favourite sun protectors for the body and it’s the first thing in my suitcase when I travel. With its lightweight consistency, this cream helps prevent irritation and redness while protecting the skin against UVA and UVB rays. The high protection of SPF 30 also helps prevent against age spots and wrinkles. Infused with olive, baobab and senna extract, this cream hydrates and soothes the skin and has an amazing fresh, summery scent. It’s creamy but sheer texture feels transparent on your skin, which is perfect for hot climates.
Sisley - After-Sun Care Tan Extender 200ml
This stunning product from Sisley is a sun holiday must-have and has a cult following for a very good reason. It’s specifically formulated to soothe, rehydrate and refresh the skin after sun exposure. With ingredients like shea butter and stevia leaf extracts, this sun care product is perfect for nourishing and softening the skin. One of my top tips when using this product is to mix a small drop of Sisley tinted moisturiser with it and it’ll even out redness and blur any imperfections on the skin.
Charlotte Tilbury - Supermodel Body Highlighter.
Supermodel Body is summer confidence in a bottle to give you that illuminating, summer glow you’ve been looking for. Designed to perfect skin and cover any imperfections it catches the light beautifully to elongate arms and legs in real life and in holiday photos. One of the top ingredients is FermiProtect, which is a wild shitake extract that protects the collagen fibres in the skin and makes your skin look and feel firmer, toned and supple.
Dior - Bronze Self-Tanning Jelly Gradual Glow – Body
A lot of self-tanners have distinct, sometimes unpleasant, scents, but Dior has infused theirs with sweet almond oil so your skin will smell delicious. I suggest exfoliating first before applying it to your skin. If you’re looking for more intensity, it’s buildable, so simply re-apply after three hours from your first application. I love that this product leaves your skin with a luminous sun-kissed veil, and a natural even tan.

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact
The original Shimmer Brick Compact comes in 5 various shades of gold, bronze, quartz, pink and peach variations to suit all skin tones. Each shimmering, brush-on powder creates the ultimate holiday glow and the five bars of luminous colour can double duty as individual eye shadows.
M.A.C - Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation
This foundation is packaged in a lightweight and portable tube, which is perfect for holidays. Designed to repel water, you’ll want this oil-free foundation for beach days and even for a typical rainy Irish summer! With its creamy texture that blends softly and easily onto the skin, I love sheering it down with M.A.C Cosmetic’s #188 brush.
Tom Ford - Soleil Lip Blush in Flaking 24K Gold
Tom Ford’s new crystal-clear lipstick, flecked with pure 24k gold gives a glistening, smoothing and hydrating finish that imparts a universally flattering flush of colour to the lips that feels as decadently rich as the gilded bullet packaging looks. Designed to enhance your existing lip colour the balmy lipstick smooths on sheer, infusing lips with intense moisture, then instantly transforms into a sultry pink stain, for beautifully lightweight colour that’s perfect for sexy summer days and nights.
Charlotte Tilbury - Magic Away Liquid Concealer
It’s truly magical what this concealer can do. It will instantly lift, brighten and conceal away any imperfections. As the formula is enriched with a silk bark extract, the product moves with the skin so it won’t settle into any fine lines. Charlotte says it’s like a concealer version of Spanx for under eye bags to lift and smooth! I love the packaging too as you can see exactly how much you have left. Give your beach or evening look a sweep of perfection with this must-have concealer every makeup bag should have.
