Summer Beauty: The best beach make up

When we see photos of celebrities on the beach, we're blown away by how incredible they look. And not just their trained-to-perfection bodies. While we end up looking like a red-faced, sweaty mess with sand stuck to all kinds of parts of our face, Rosie H-W and co trot around looking like glowing, magical beauties. We don't want to pile on the foundation and contour like a Kardashian when it's baking hot but we think everyone needs a little help when it comes to nailing beach beauty.

Rimmel London's global make up artist Kirstin Piggott has devised the perfect cheat sheet for anyone heading to a sandy beach this summer. Here's how to glow and gleam like a model on holiday (or just in your local pub garden) this year...
