Tom Ford Soleil Lip Foil in Private Life $86
A coppery nude lip colour will enhance the effect of your summer tan. This is one of six shimmering shades with a mirror foil finish thanks to the three-dimensional effect of ultra-fine mica. We love the names, which include Venus Rising, for a reflective pretty pink. From Smith & Caughey’s, Queen St and David Jones, Wellington.

My Sunshine sunscreen $50
Make the rest of summer safer and keep your complexion clear with this locally made, mineral SPF30, laced with nourishing antioxidants. Takapuna mother-of-three Sarah Studd wanted a more natural sunscreen, so she worked with an Auckland laboratory to develop a pleasing texture that also meets strict Australasian screening standards.

Tom Ford Soleil Blanc Dry Body Oil $118
Scented with the Soleil Blanc Private Blend fragrance — a warm floral and amber blend — this non-tacky oil will lubricate your limbs lusciously. It is part of Ford’s Winter Soleil resort collection for the Northern Hemisphere, which is nicely timed for our summer. The luxury line-up includes the most expensive travel brush set we’ve come across, priced at $950 for a set of four in a white leather zip pouch. Tom Ford stockists as before.
