My makeup bag has taken an interesting turn this month, although it’s pretty clear that I’m still lusting after glowing skin and bright cheeks – some things won’t ever change. A couple of new products have worked their way in to my hands lately but so have a few old loves…
First up, NARS Sheer Glow Foundation (£31) this is an old favourite of mine but I’ve been reaching for it recently because I adore the coverage and finish. Despite what the name suggests, this isn’t so sheer when applied – it has quite a minimal, naturally radiant finish but on the whole it’s probably medium coverage and it conceals imperfections without looking heavy. I love the typical NARS packaging, it’s super sleek and always so aesthetically pleasing, although I do need to purchase the pump at some point. I apply using a buffing brush of some sort and the result is always perfected skin.
A new addition is the Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polish (£9) a creamy pearl highlighter which is perfect for inducing a glow and emphasising cheekbones. This is so very creamy, I mean that in the sense that it’s almost wet but it feels quite powdering when applied which means it doesn’t budge throughout the day. I’m so hooked on this stuff, and that price tag suits me just fine!
Another new cheek product is the Clarins Multi-Blush Cream Blushers (£18), a new release from the brand that I’m pretty smitten with! These come in four lovely shades, seen here is Candy, and they’re all quite sophisticated colours. They have a bold edge and they apply flawlessly, they’re super easy to blend and feel very light throughout application. Me love!
On to eyes, I have my trusty Anastasia DipBrow Pomade in Blonde (£15) which has become my everyday brow product at the moment. This mousse-y creamy is so simple to use and the shade blonde is perfect for me, I use a small angled brush to apply and I never have any issues. It’s pretty hard to mess this up, basically. I never thought I would move on from pencil but this proves you can use cream and still have natural brows.
The bareMinerals Lash Domination Mascara (£17) is my current lash-extender of choice – this is another new love but it’s taken no time at all to impress me. Aside from the chic metallic packaging, I love this because it really extends my lashes without making them look clumpy or unnatural. It lengthens and defines but there’s no signs of spidery legged lashes. Win.
