Beauty and the Best: June's must-have products

With all the gorgeous new spring summer trends available and an array of cool colours for our makeup and nails, it's time to get into the spring/summer vibe and feel and look fresh and lovely every day. 

Rain one day then sunny the next, who knows what the weather will be. Get prepared with painted nails and soft skin - here are my top ten beauty favourites for June. Some new, and some I just can't live without:

 

Samantha Faiers' new fragrance La Bella

There's nothing better than a gorgeous scent on a summer evening. Reality TV star Samantha Faiers launches her fragrance La Bella next week and it's perfect for evenings in the summer sun. The scent mixes a top note of vanilla, a heart of iris flower and benzoin, with a musk and caramel base. The fragrance launches June 12 and costs £24.50.

Giorgio Armani Cosmetics' Bright Ribbon collection

Giorgio Armani Cosmetics launch their new Bright Ribbon collection from July 1st. The nail and lip range has been inspired by Mediterranean gardens and focuses on vibrant colours. The six Rouge d'Armani lipsticks feature Coral, Mandarine, Rose Tendre, Rose Pop Électrique, Prune Star and Violet Foncé, all costing £25 each. The six nail lacquers (£20) consist of Coral, Mandarine, Rose Tender, Rose Pop Électrique, Violet Foncé and Vert Vif. Team these gorgeous bright colours with a holiday tan and you're ready to party.

Bronzing leg spray

This skinsheen leg spray from MAC applies like a soft mousse to provide a quick, highly blendable application of colour to legs, arms, shoulders and decollétage. It's just the ideal sunless tanner if you need instant colour without an all over body tan. This is a sheer gel with a slight shimmer in an aerosol bronzing spray and it retails for £21.50.

 

Bumble and Bumble Invisible Oil primer

In July Bumble and Bumble launches the Invisible Oil family line. After the success of its Hairdresser's Invisible Oil, the brand has created three new products: Invisible Oil Sulfate Free Shampoo (£23), Invisible Oil Conditioner (£25) and Invisible Oil Heat/UV Protective Primer (£19). The formula uses six different oils to help soften, silken, tame, de-frizz and protect the hair. I've tried the primer and love it: my hair is wild and frizzy and it just calms it without feeling like I have tons of product in. 

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess luminous liquid bronzer

If you love your bronzer and want to find a lovely natural glow that doesn't look fake, Estée Lauder's Bronze Goddess luminous liquid bronzer is a must try. Try blending the liquid bronzer one shade darker than normal over your cheekbones, nose, forehead, and chin. The good thing is, you can wash it off if you go too far.  Retailing at £30. 

Clarins Hydraquench tinted mousturiser SP15

Clarins has announced the launch of its new Hydraquench Tinted Moisturizer SP15, available from June. The formula uses hyaluronic acid and katafray bark extract to deeply hydrate the skin, giving a plump, radiant appearance. As well as offering hydration, the moisturiser provides slight coverage with light reflecting pigments, creating the look of healthy, glowing skin in shades Porcelain, Sand, Honey, Peach, Blond, Gold and Bronze. Retailing for £30.
