It’s Time To Overhaul Your Go-To Summer Beauty Wardrobe

From mermaidcore to maxiskirts and sheer, well, everything, this summer’s fashion trends have had us doing more than a few wardrobe overhauls. And the same can certainly be said for our beauty wardrobe, too. 

While lashings of coral blush and barely-there bleached brows were the signature look of summer 2022, this year we’re all about dewy, highlight-adorned skin, no-make up make up and, of course, latte eyes. See: Sofia Richie, Hailey Bieber, Maya Jama. Need we go on? 

Unfortunately, unlike Sofia and co., not all of us have an entourage of hair and make up artists on speed dial, so it’s up to us to achieve that just-got-back-from-the-Amalfi-Coast glow at home. Luckily, with new and exclusives from some of our favourite brands, achieving that dewy, summer aesthetic just got a whole lot easier. On that note, these are our go-to names to help you serve effortless, summer style — without breaking a sweat…

Abiding by an attitude of thoughtfulness that transcends self care, and inspired by the Korean concept of ‘jeong’ (a deep feeling of empathy and affection that one can develop for people, places and things), Then I Met You is set to change the way you nurture your skin. 

With bestsellers including the Living Cleansing Balm (designed to effortlessly melt away make up, sunscreen and excess sebum while feeding your skin with antioxidants and fatty acids), the Birch Milk Refining Toner (which harnesses a cocktail of exfoliating and moisturising extracts to reveal a brighter complexion) and The Giving Essence (which quenches skin with a brightening blend of antioxidants, niacinamide, polyglutamic acid and more), Then I Met You is about to become your glow-to.

What do you get when you combine honey and hair care? It turns out, the answer is… endlessly glossy, deliciously scented strands. Drawing on the expertise of six beekeeping generations, Gisou founder Negin Mirsalehi sustainably harnesses the power of honey to provide a range of deeply nourishing hair care products.  

With everything from the brand’s bestselling Honey Infused Leave-In Hair Mask (which we love to leave soaking into our hair on summer days that call for a slicked-back bun) to the Honey Infused Hair Perfume (yep, we didn’t know we needed that either… until now), Gisou is the secret to luxuriously hydrated hair.

What better addition to your summer beauty bag than Summer Fridays? The name says it all, really. Dreamt up by a team of industry experts, Summer Fridays boasts simple yet sublime time and time again favourites, formulated with vegan ingredients. A forever go-to (and with the seal of approval from Kim Kardashian herself), the Jet Lag Mask leaves skin gorgeous, whether you’ve skipped several time zones or haven’t left home, while the Cloud Dew Oil-free Gel Cream will have your complexion feeling oh so heavenly. 

With soft, summer skin in mind, Summer Fridays has exclusively launched the Rich Cushion Cream, an absolute must-have for dewy (and deeply hydrated) skin.
