Is your makeup routine ready for summer?

Summer clothes and accessories seem to have been in the shops for ages and hopefully you are looking forward to your own holiday.  But when you are thinking about what to pack - don't forget the beauty products and make up that will keep you looking good and protecting your skin and hair at the same time.
 
Here's my top ten items that should always travel with you - along with my top buys for value and quality.

Sunscreen - Even on a cloudy day in the UK you should NEVER go out without sunscreen. Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF30 offers the right protection level to prevent skin damage and premature ageing.
 
Waterproof Mascara - Maybelline Great Lash lives up to its name giving you great-looking lashes every day and into the night. Alternatively, I can apply semi-permanent lash extensions before you go away to keep your make up routine simpler on your holiday.
 
Lip SPF - Don't forget your lips can get burned on hot sunny days too, Ultra Sun Ultra Lip SPF15 will keep them smooth and safe.
 
Bright Nail Polish - Summer 2012 is going to see our love affair with super stylish nails continuing. Take a look at the latest polish collections from Zoya. The new Beach and Surf colours will bring some serious zing to your nails, making them look kissed by sea and sand!

Gel or Cream Body Bronzer - If like me the sun does more damage than anything else (how many freckles does a girl need?!), why not opt for a body bronzer? I love Laura Mercier’s Body Bronzing Makeup.
 
A leave-in protective treatment for hair - A few spritzes of Aveda Sun Care Protective Hair Care - a lightweight, water-resistant, eco friendly product -  at the beach or the poolside will keep your hair colour looking radiant all summer.

Hydrating Face Mist - Neal’s Yard White Tea Facial Mist calms and rehydrates all skin types. Use it regularly through the day and in the evening to refresh your makeup and keep you cool and relaxed.

Fragrance – Summer days and nights call for a light and zesty scent. Ck One Summer is a  breezy, limited-edition version of your old favourite which fits the bill with refreshing notes of mint, cucumber, and lime.
 
Waterproof Eyeliner - Bobbi Brown long wear gel eyeliner is a must!
 
Lip stain - Wear lip stain under your sun protection, and if you choose Jane Iredale’s Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain in ‘Forever Pink’ it will double up as a cheek stain to save space in your luggage. What more could you want?
