Living on the beach, you need to be beach ready all year round. So we consider ourselves pretty much experts on the topic. Whilst working on our fitness doesn’t happen every day (unless beach walks with the dog and the occasional surf count), having knock-out beach party eyes and perfectly bronzed cheeks can happen in a flash.

To help kit you out this summer (and to save you some serious leg work in this heat), here are our top 5 makeup must haves this season:

Shiseido Kajal Ink Artist’s Pencil – This waterproof eye pencil is the ultimate beach beauty tool. Use as liner, kajal, shadow or brow definer to create a striking look.

Sisley Paris Le Phyto Rouge – Made for the Cayman climate, this lipstick is intensely moisturizing whilst giving you colour that lasts. Go bold and make waves!

Dior One Essential Serum – A beauty secret that we swear by. Beat the UV rays and get a revitalized complexion with this powerful serum that uses hibiscus extract to help detoxify and regenerate the skin.

Chanel Sublimage L’Essence – This ultra concentrated light activating serum removes toxins and promotes radiance. Perfect for maintaining that sun-kissed glow after partying til dawn. Pair with vitalumière aqua liquid foundation with SPF 15 for a sun-savvy beauty routine.

La Prairie Skin Caviar Absolute Filler – Some call it a luxury, others say it’s a necessity. Stay fresh-faced with this moisturizer that has a subtle plumping effect. A must for your beach bag. It’s indulgent but worth the splurge.


There you have it folks, all you need to look as cool as a cucumber this summer (which ironically, we also use in our beauty routine – place a chilled cucumber slice over each eye, request a Hendriks and tonic from whoever is closest, wait 10 minutes, et voila! Eyes are sparkly, spirit is rejuvenated. Cheers!).

This post isn’t just for the ladies. Get your woo inspo right here, gentlemen. I shun your gift of beauty, said no glamour puss, ever.
