These self-tans, shimmers, body highlighters and more are designed to help cover imperfections

Summer holidays tend to mean more skin on show, which is where a bit of clever body makeup can make all the difference to your confidence. Here’s our pick of the best for that all-important boost.

Super FX Body Makeup

An incredible, lightweight formulation designed to smooth, even and perfect the appearance of skin quickly, simply and instantly. Each shade (there are three) provides a flawless, natural colour with a remarkable smooth, satin finish to last all day, with no shimmer or glitter, and it’s both water and transfer resistant.

Glow Mist Bronze

Bellamianta have collaborated with Love Island’s Maura Higgins to create a bespoke at home tanning range including this shimmer glow mist. Enriched with hyaluronic acid and bursting with superfruits, this ultimate fine mist will give you a bronze glow and help to hydrate, plump, and add an instant dewy finish to face and body.
