Summer is almost here and while it might not be time to break out the "short-shorts" or strappy sandals just yet, there’s something about the rise in temperatures that makes our make-up stash feel ripe for an overhaul.
This month, the beauty industry is blooming with a wealth of new launches designed to tackle a wide range of issues, from pint-sized products that are perfect for travelling to seasonal scents and summer-ready skincare.
As the warm weather approaches, now is the time to consider how the change is going to affect your complexion with products that promise to brighten and revitalise.
Meanwhile, make-up fans will be anticipating the launch of Gucci’s new and improved beauty line which will deliver a 58-strong lipstick collection this month, and the arrival of Fenty Beauty in Boots stores.
