To prep your lips for summer, Fenty Beauty have introduced the Pro Kiss’r Collection, featuring Luscious Lip Balm (£15) and Lip-Loving Scrubstick (£15).  Luscious Lip Balm is a creamy moisture-lock lip balm that smooths, softens and imparts an invisipink sheen for all skin and lip tones.  It can be used to prep lips before lipstick or to wear alone.   Lip-Loving Scrubstick takes your prep to the next level; a fuss-free lip scrub in a twist-up stick packed with apricot seed scrubbers to gently exfoliate and nourish for smooth, soft lips.  Available online and in store at Harvey Nichols as well as on-line and in selected Boots stores.


Add a hint of Sicily to your client’s summer makeup routine.  Diego dalla Palma have launched Aqua Mist&Fix 4-in-1 Spray (£19.50).  It not only sets makeup, prolonging the staying power, but it is also an energising essence.  With citrus fruits and flowers from Sicily it hydrates and protects skin from all types of pollution.   Formulated with 3D Pollu Block, it creates an invisible protective shield on the face and prevents smog, smoke, fine dusts and other pollution from settling on the skin.  Perfect for summer in the city or a trip away.  Available from lookfantastic.


Highlight your client’s best features with Algenist Reveal Concentrated Luminizing Drops (£30).  This lightweight serum highlighter is infused with light reflecting pigments and ultra-fine, luminous pearls to lend the complexion a radiant glow.  Gliding effortlessly onto skin, the featherweight formula diffuses light to create a soft focus, luminous effect whilst colour correcting and treating uneven skin tone with an AlgaCorrecting Complex.  Added Diamond Powder visibly improves skin’s firmness and helps boost peptide performance.  Use alone to highlight targeted areas, or mix with a daily foundation or primer for an all-over radiant glow.  Available from spacenk and lookfantastic.


Anastasia Beverly Hills launch a new Eye Primer (£24) next week.   This water-resistant, light-coloured base creates the perfect canvas for matte and shimmer shadows and pressed pigments.  The light-weight cream formula glides on smoothly to ensure smooth blendable application and smudge-free wear of all types of shadow.  The moisturising formula reduces the appearance of fine lines, creates the look of even skin tone and masks the look of discolouration.  Free of parabens, gluten, phthalates, oil and alcohol. Vegan and cruelty free.  Available in store and online from Selfridges from 7th June.

Plump it up with Barry M’s That’s Swell XXL Extreme Lip Plumper (£4.99) in four new tinted summer shades.  Vegan-friendly and infused with hydrating oils and mixed with a kick of invigorating ginger, the healthy ingredients work to stimulate the skin’s natural collagen, creating fuller looking lips for an on-point tinted and plumped pout.  Available exclusively in store and online at superdrug.
