I don't know where you were in the world yesterday but after a week of non-stop torrential rain, the sunshine finally came out to play at Bondi Beach.
My Sunday morning was spent with MW walking from Bondi to Bronte stopping to look at the Sculptures By The Sea exhibition along the board walk. After our walk and a healthy breakfast, we wandered down to the beach for a swim with Le Tan Coconut SPF 30+ Lotion, $10.99 (www.letan.com.au) and our beach umbrella in tow. Oh so sun safe of us!
All of this talk of sun, sand and salt water leads me to talk about, wait for it... cheek tints!
Y'see, cheek tints are perfect for beach weather!
My favourites are Benefit Benetint, $55 (www.benefitcosmetics.com), NARS The Multiple in South Beach, $89 (www.meccacosmetica.com.au) and Becca Beach Tint in Grapefruit, $42 (www.beccacosmetics.com). What makes them winners is that they are can be applied to both cheeks and lips. Tint formulas are generally water-resistant, streak-free and non-greasy so you can blend before the beach for a natural flush of colour.
Just a bit of this baby and you'll be looking as smokin' as Lara Bingle is in the new Speedo Summer 10/11 campaign. Styled by Harper's BAZAAR Fashion Editor, Christine Centenera and shot by photographer, Simon Leikias, Gritty Pretty thinks she looks amazeballs. Yes, The Bingle is back and boy, she's in control.
Did anyone catch how amazing she looked at the ARIA Awards last night?
Aside from SPF 30+ sunscreen, what are your beach beauty essentials?
And where exactly were you in the world on Sunday? I made extra dinner for you and everything.
