• and my signature nail color is red. I pair this with red lips – MAC Lady Danger adds a sexy accent to any outfit. I use Moroccan Oil on damp hair daily – it helps nip frizz in the bud. Pre-date, getting my body looking its best is my biggest
    boost: Biotherm Firm Corrector gives legs, arms and décolleté a gorgeous sheen.
    The finishing touch: Fragrance sets my mood, so to go from desk to dinner I spritz the warm, spicy Fan di Fendi on my skin and hair so it lingers seductively.

    Our summer lasts up to nine months, so body-confident Brazilians take their beauty routine seriously. Weekly manicures and pedicures are de rigueur, as well as monthly facials. If I haven’t had time to book one, I do a DIY facial the night before a date, with Eve Lom Cleanser and Aurelia Cell Repair Night Oil. I avoid sugar

    and alcohol for 24 hours to avoid puffiness. On the day, I use a mask for radiance and to ensure my makeup glides on.
    The finishing touch: I apply Aromatherapy Associates Roland Mouret Final Finish Body Serum down my arms and legs to add a sexy shimmer and elongate limbs.

    Conditioned, glossy skin and hair are beauty cornerstones for Mexican women. We are also obsessed with pigmentation, so I use products that deliver on luminosity. Two hours before any date, I apply Givenchy Le Soin Noir Masque Dentelle, which wakes up lackluster skin, and prep my complexion with Clarins Beauty Flash Balm. I use RMS Beauty Un Cover-Up Shade 44 for under-eye hues and add smudge-proof Chantecaille Cils Mascara, which stays put all evening. I keep my

    hair effortless but polished, with a deep conditioner and drops of coconut oil – it smells delicious.
    The finishing touch: I keep my tan topped up with St Tropez Instant Wash Off Body Glow.


    Madrid:

    CARMEN LANCHARES

    Beauty director, Vogue Spain

    Spanish women take great care of their appearance, particularly in warmer weather. When my skin glows, I feel at my most confident. I prepare my skin with Natura Bissé C+C Vitamin and apply SK-II Facial Treatment Mask. I use a light foundation and hide any blemishes with Charlotte Tilbury The Retoucher in Medium. To define eyes for night time, I trace over the upper lash line in a navy blue and thicken for a Bardot-inspired, sexy finish – I love By Terry Crayon Khol Terrybly in Blue Vision. I end with a little mascara.
    The finishing touch: Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks in Pink Pale gives the prettiest flush.
