Beauty buyer Sandra’s top summer picks


Senior beauty buyer, Sandra Houghton

Summer is here!

I don't know about you, but the excitement of summer is not just about being able to pack away your winter woollies and bare your milky white legs for the first time… it's an opportunity for a beauty overhaul! It's time to bring out the bronzer, liven up your lip gloss and bare all to the sun (Ultrasun essential obviously)!
This year is going to be no exception and I am so excited about the new summer products we have at QVC. Plus, I always have a few summer staples in my beauty bag.

For the bronze goddess in you

Whilst I like to believe I am a bronze goddess, I have to admit I need a little help. This year an essential to my summer selection is the new bareMinerals Ready Bronzer in High Dive (tan). Not only does it give me the perfect summer glow but this new compressed mineral formula means I can take it with me anywhere I go, just what I need for my holiday travels.  

When it comes to the body, the new Dalton Golden Pearl Body Bronzer (item number 201195) launching in June, gives me the glow I am looking for. Use the mitt provided to highlight the body for a sun kissed look.

Luscious lashes are the best beach accessory. A good waterproof mascara is a must to avoid the panda look, not good! This summer I am using Mally's Volumizing Waterproof Mascara. Mally is quite right, it is bulletproof!

Looking good in your cosie

Whilst Beyonce may look fabulous in her bathers, sporting a cosie needs a little extra work for me! To tone the thighs I invested in a Leg Master and wow! After only a few weeks and only a few minutes a day, I can see the difference.  

Preparation is essential – firstly, I treat myself to an Elemis Lime & Ginger Salt Glow to make my body feel silky smooth. Then a little tan is definitely needed and my current favourite is the new James Reed range coming soon to QVC. The expert ‘spray tanner’, James is on speed dial to the stars and has now put together the perfect products for us to use at home. It gives me the summer glow I am looking for whilst looking natural as well.

From head to toe

Finally one can't forget the toes. Yes they have been covered for months but it is time to reveal them to the sun! I love to go bright in the summer and the perfect red is my favourite for sandal chic. Red Carpet Manicure has the exact shade ‘Red Carpet Ready’ and what’s more this at home gel system means it lasts for ages! No more worrying about top ups on holiday. Watch out for Red Carpet Manicure on QVC in June.

So come on ladies, layer on the Ultrasun and step out into the sunshine!
