WATCH: Activate holiday mode with this sheer, illuminated (and SPF-protected) base

As we move away from party season and into some well-deserved time off, it’s time to switch on holiday mode for our makeup too. Combining skincare and makeup, this glowing, effortless base is ready for your next trip.

Look and feel refreshed with pared-back coverage and amped-up glow that’s ready for the beach, pool and beyond. Press play!


Relieve tension and refresh skin with a Charlotte Tilbury Cryo Recovery Mask straight from the freezer – pop it on and chill for 10 minutes.


Amplify radiance all over with Dr. Barbara Sturm Glow Drops – this hydrating, anti-ageing and refining serum is infused with light-reflecting pigments to instantly revitalise skin.


Apply Mecca Cosmetica To Save Face SPF50+ Superscreen Oxybenzone Free Formula liberally (that means at least a teaspoonful!) to the face and neck an d give it a moment to absorb – this acts as both a moisturiser and a primer.

Tinted moisturiser

Dot NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser onto cheeks, forehead and chin and blend outwards for a seamless finish. It’s buildable so you can increase coverage where you need it.

Sunscreen (yes, again!)

Top up your SPF throughout the day using Naked Sundays SPF50+ Hydrating Glow Mist – use seven spritzes (at least!) across the face and neck.*

*Use wisely. Always check the label for directions. Avoid prolonged sun exposure and wear protective clothing, eyewear and a hat. Reapply as directed.
