The Good Web Guide’s editors open up their bathroom cabinets and unzip their make-up bags to reveal their hottest buys right now.

At the risk of jinxing matters meteorological, we’re going out on a limb to say that the summer does, at long last, seem to be settling in to stay. As such, we’re getting our seasonal beauty regimes into gear – and these are the buys we’re really into that are helping us to do it. What’s in your make-up bag right now?

Becky Ladenburg, Features Editor

After an excellent Elemis facial (possibly the best of my life), I bought a bottle of Pro-Collagen Marine Oil. This ultra-lightweight oil is magic. Designed to minimise the look of fine lines and wrinkles, it soothes my skin and makes it glow like nothing I’ve ever used before.

Lydia Mansi, Lifestyle Editor

I love Sunday Riley’s targeted facial oils. This month, I’ve been using the CEO Glow oil – after a grey, wet winter it’s given my dull skin a real hit of Vitamin C and it already feels brighter and healthier.

Lucy Abletshauser, Shopping Editor

I am loving the Superdose Vitamin C moisturising cream by Beauty Pie. It is incredible! Not only does it keep my skin lovely and soft, it also leaves it with a glowy sheen. It’s the perfect base for make up too and really sinks in.

Nancy Alsop, Editor

I keep a reasonably pared-back make-up bag, but I’m never without a red lipstick for a slick of cheering colour and a shot of glamour. As summer comes into focus, I’m swapping my warmer reds for a coral, in the perennial hope of offsetting a tan. Charlotte Tilbury’s Miranda May is perfection.

Arabella Dymoke, Managing Director

Always in search of a good night's sleep, these Sleep Drops from The Nue Co. appear to be doing the trick. Twelve drops under the tongue thirty minutes before bed, gives you enough time to read a chapter or two before drifting off into slumber. The tincture is alcohol free, pleasant to taste and you wake the next morning with a clear head. I'm impressed. £20
