Looking great this summer needn’t cost a fortune thanks to these beauty bargains

The weather might not be great but that doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself to one (or all!) of these summer beauty buys, especially when every single one of them is under £20.

Sandal season and bikini time is well and truly upon us, whether you’re braving a staycation or planning a holiday abroad so now’s the time to start beautifying your body as you prepare to bare.

Until now, your feet have been tucked away all cosily in opaques and boots so chances are they’re in need of a bit of TLC. Start by sloughing rough skin on the heels and balls of the feet then dress up your toes in a peep-toe pretty colour.

If you’re worried about baring your milk bottle legs for the first time, then we say fake it. A swish of bronzer across the face, neck and décolletage will give your complexion a similar health boost.

Finally when you hit the beach – or the British weather finally gets the summer memo – it’s wise to upgrade your usual make-up for smudge-proof, stay-put formulas, from crease-free eyeshadows to waterproof mascara.

Here are 20 excuses to hit the beauty aisles this week. Ladies, meet our summer beauty buys under £20!
