Break out the bikini and slap on some SPF, the sun is out (Or at least as much as you can expect from Ireland) and we can't wait to get started with our summer beauty refresh! With a focus on low-maintenance beauty and showcasing your natural shine, we've gathered a few beauty bag must haves to take your wedding day glow to the next level.

Before Bed

Although your wedding day is a day you may never want to end, it’s vital to remove your make-up before going to bed. Clinique has expanded it's outstanding Take The Day Off collection with a hydrating Cleansing Mousse, €32, that will wash away everything but your smile in no time, leaving your skin perfectly clean and nourished.

Soft eye shadow. Graphic eyeliner. Natural-looking blush. Luminous highlighter. The new Idôle Tint, €30, from Lancôme is a multipurpose make-up tool designed to unlock your ultimate creative side. It promises to deliver 16 hours of eyeshadow wear in a choice of two finishes: matte or iridescent shimmer. This really was made for the bride-to-be.

Raise a Glass!

Prisma Glass, €34, by Armani Beauty embodies a glass-like shine and prismatic finish. It’s when the shine of a gloss meets the care of an oil — a lightweight oil-in-gloss enriched with squalene to lock in 24 hours of hydration for pillowy smooth lips.

Deep Hydration

Designed to boost, balance, and brighten the skin’s protective barrier, Barrier+Treatment, €22.99, the latest skincare solution from Byoma, is infused with a spectacle of hydrating heroes, such as avocado oil and squalane, to deliver deep, targeted hydration, while accelerating your complexion’s natural ceramide production.

Lash Control

POCO Empower Eyelash Curler, €16, is the perfect partner to the brand’s Volume Mascara. Before applying the final and most empowering step of your beauty routine, prepare your lashes by curling them to perfection with this curler, which was designed to minimise pinching and avoid damage to your natural lash.
