Nars, Sheer Glow Foundation
First up, we have selected the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation. This foundation gives great coverage and looks really natural on the skin! This can be built up nicely, so can be used for both day looks and night time wear. Also perfect for that dewy complexion, and can be powdered for a matt finish. Luckily, this product is great for all skin types and doesn’t cling to dry patches, super long lasting!
L’Oreal, Infallible 24H Foundation
Great foundation for normal to dry skin, leaves a dewy complexion yet covers fully. When it says 24 hour wear, it really means it… You can leave in the morning and return home with flawless coverage still in tact, this has been personally experienced! If you have oily skin, we’d say go for the… L’Oreal, Paris Infallible Matte Foundation
Benefit, Hoola Bronzing Powder
This bronzing powder is a great all-rounder that will warm up your complexion whilst contouring at the same time. The colour is perfect and you can wear it as subtle or as bold as you fancy, no real shimmer (which we love). Stays on all day and really defines those cheekbones!
Bourjois, Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder Medium/Dark
Lovely warming bronzer, leaves skin with a healthy glow and definition. This gives a really nice even finish which once again has no shimmer so can be used for both contouring and bronzing… leaves you perfectly sun-kissed!
Benefit, Gimme Brow
Perfect for a quick and easy defined eyebrow look, leaving brows looking filled in, plumped up yet oh so natural. Great applicator wand, leaving no excess around the brow!
Maybelline, Brow Satin Eyebrow Pencil
Perfect pencil and powder combo, so quick and easy to pencil in sparse areas of brow and then run the powder through the eyebrow using the foamy applicator stick to finish off.
Benefit, Roller Lash
Ideal mascara for curling and thickening. We especially like it as it lengthens and separates each lash, using the tiny soft hooks on the applicator wand. No transfer marks left on eyelid… Ideal!
L’Oréal, Paris Telescopic Mascara
Lengthens and adds thickness to lashes without clumping. Overall, can be used for a natural everyday look or it can be built up for that false lash dramatic look.
Mac, Lipstick Pure Zen
This lipstick suits every makeup look, a light nude with pinky peach undertones which compliments all skin tones. One of Mac’s Cream Sheen lipsticks so no matt finish, no need for lipgloss!
Rimmel, Moisture Renew Lipstick
Another nude with a peachy undertone lipstick, suits a wide variety of skin tones and gives a natural yet classy look whilst moisturising the lips. Great handbag essential, we love the moisturising quality of this one and the wide variety of colours available!
