I've got a lot of trips planned this year, so I'm sure I'll be testing lots of beach beauty buys each time. I've just got back from Dubai, so here's a peek into what I took in my beach bag...

Protecting your skin is so important, so I am always really cautious of applying sunscreen while I'm on holiday. My ultimate sun cream - the one I've been addicted to for the past few years - is Hawaiian Tropic Sun Shimmer. It's perfect if you want to look a little bit more glam on the beach as it has incredible shimmer flecks in the lotion. Basically it makes your body look amazing! So I use this all over my body and for my face my go-to sunscreen is Clarins SPF30 Sun Wrinkle Control Cream For Face. Protecting your lips is also SO important - burnt lips are *not* sexy. I love Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream (who doesn't?!) which has a SPF25 formula.

The few essential tools I keep in my bag. Firstly, I love Makeup Revolution's mini brush kit as the brushes are so dinky which is perfect for on-the-go. I use this powder brush to dust some bronzer all over my face, and use this cute Lottie London mirror to check my face. Then, in pretty much EVERY bag I own, there's a stash of Invisibobbles. You can quickly pop your hair up knowing you won't have any kinks when you take it out. Yes!

Okay, sometimes going completely barefaced on the beach can be a little daunting - especially if you're going to a party and taking lots of pics! So, I keep a large bronzing powder in my bag so I can keep my summer glow while also matiffying my skin too. This L'Oreal Glam Bronze Powder is so pretty, and is the perfect shade of bronze. Then, a tiny sweep of my favourite waterproof mascara - Maybelline Lash Sensational - and I'm good to go.

And obviously, the bag is just as - if not, more - important! This cute tassel beach clutch from Riviera Chic is SO cute! You can pick your choice of font colour and initials, to get your own personalised clutch. LOVE.
