Summer beauty products are arriving in store. It's the perfect time to plan your new-season look.

Electric blue liner, juicy bright lips and bright, bold nails are just some of the beauty treats in store this summer. 

Bobbi Brown, the queen of natural makeup, has just released a dreamy Surf & Sand Eye Palette, $150, featuring eight subtle-yet-stunning eye shadows in a range of sheer shades from metallic bronze to sparkling gold. 

If you find yourself frustrated with eye palettes that contain colours that don't suit you, you'll love Revlon's new ColorStay ShadowLinks, $12.95 each; 30 shades to choose from and each individual eye shadow snaps together to create your very own palette of possibilities. The shadows all offer rich colour payoff in a variety of finishes from soft matte to satin and high sparkle, so it's dead easy to customise.

When it comes to summer skin it's important to choose a good foundation that's light enough to let your skin breathe. L'Oreal has just released its new Infallible 24 Hour Stay Fresh Foundation, $39.99, which offers good coverage with plenty of moisture and no shine - key when the temperature rises. 

Also smack on trend is 70s-influenced blue and green eye makeup. If the full-on hippie/trippy look is too much, grab an eye pencil in a new-season jeweled tone to create a subtle take on the trend. Try MAC's Pro Longwear Eyeliner in Vibrant Teal, $50, for a simple pop of colour or NARS' Eye Shadow Duo in Tropical Princess, $74, a lime and lavender combo that offers some serious seaside glamour. 

Smashbox's New Be Legendary Lip Glosses, $40, are also a perfect summer accessory light and airy with a glassy, but non-sticky finish. There are 16 highly pigmented glosses in the collection and we love them because they offer beautiful bold colour as well as the glamour of a gloss.
