There a few things you simply can’t live without during your summer vacation, and for us, it’s our beauty necessities! It’s the first thing we pack, so we’ve handpicked (yes, tried and tested on ourselves) the best products for your make-up bag this summer…

We ditched the plain old black eyeliner and decided to explore the fun side this summer with MAKE UP FOR EVER’s Aqua Eye pencil (95AED). Best part? The super long-lasting and smudge free effect that will last through heat, humidity, waves, parties and concerts (dream- come true!)! From nude to electrifying colors, the eyeliners come in 20 shades and different finishes including matte, iridescent and diamond.

There’s nothing more ecstatic than finding the perfect mascara. Cross that, we found a mascara that not only gives you THE PERFECT lashes, but also increases their natural volume overtime due to Clarin’s new “Volume booster” complex: an unprecedented combination of key ingredients. We’re absolute in love with the New Mascara Supra Volume – instant effect and long-term benefits.

3. Summer Waves

Keeping our locks top notch through the summer is Lancaster. The Multi Protective Hair Spray (110 AED) protects hair from salt, chlorine and sun during the lazy tanning by the pool/sea. This After Sun Hair spray is an oil serum that deeply nourishes and hydrates while also closing hair cuticles. The perfect solution for the soft, lush and carefree summer waves.

4. Poudre

Not exactly your floral typical beach selection for a perfume, but Narciso Rodriguez Narciso Poudree (415/560 AED) is rich and deeply sensual. Standing out from the tropical aromas, we think it gives a distinguished touch to our aura, with its soft powdery musk layered with a velvety smooth floral blend of white jasmine petals, Bulgarian rose and signature woody notes of vetiver, and black and white cedars. Very feminine, lush and sexy.
