With high summer in full swing for those in the North, the only thing on a woman’s mind is her destination and her beachwear.

Beach cover ups consist of kaftans, beaded crop tops, romantic chiffon maxi skirts, and anything that shows a little bit of that sun kissed skin. For make up, the strong and vibrant lip-colour trend becomes an accessory in itself. Coral and orange are two key colours to wear to ensure a trend-setting holiday; a swipe of waterproof mascara and some bronzer for good measure and you’re ready to go!
