A multi-tasking marvel, we absolutely love the Studio 10 Age Defy Skin Protector palette. To maximise the effectiveness of application, we’ve paired our new concealer pal with Studio 10’s Double Ended Concealer Brush. Ideal for freshening up the under eye area, covering blemishes and generally brightening your tired winter complexion, blend the palette colours for a perfectly tailored shade. One for the beauty wish-list, Age Defy Skin Perfector gets a definite thumbs up from us.
Since doing a little beauty and skincare research, we’ve already heard several people tell us Benefit Hello Flawless! is one of their all time favourite powder kits. One of the best bits about this powder compact is the fact it comes with both a sponge and brush application. Offering ideal coverage, the powder is light as a feather too. Sweep on with the brush for a light finish, or apply using the sponge if you need a heavy duty effect. We’d strongly suggest using this powder alongside Benefit’s Boing! Concealer and Hello Flawless! Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation too, building up a beauty base magic formula.
A sponge applicator concealer, we are already big fans of Burberry makeup and this beauty buy is no exception to that rule. Presented in sleek metallic grey packaging, the concealer can be used for both the under eye area and to correct blemishes. Silky soft as the name suggests, this product is easy to blend and long-lasting. We’ve also been using the gorgeous luminous Nude Powder alongside our new concealer pen, creating a flawless Burberry makeup base face.
Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation is a luminous, sheer product, adding brightness to your beauty base. Perfect for a cold and grey time of year, you will receive compliments galore. Available in a series of shades, the liquid foundation can be dispensed with the pipette top. Light and glowing, wear a thin layer for a simple sheen and coverage, or a little more if you’re looking for a bolder effect.
Available in four shades, this bestselling Clarins buy is a cult beauty favourite amongst makeup fans. Lasting all day, we like to pop a bit of Instant Concealer under our eyes to brighten up those peepers. Smoothing out skin imperfections, the product glides onto skin and can be blended in easily. Nourishing and hydrating, it will give skincare problem areas a little drink too.
Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer
Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer has been a strong beauty base contender in our makeup kit for a little while now. We like to apply to blemishes and our under eye area first, before blending it and smoothing foundation across the rest of our face. A little bit goes a long way and coverage is absolutely amazing, thanks to its rich pigment formula. The secret is, you need to apply a small amount and let it settle into the skin, before enjoying this foundation and concealer duo’s incredible results. Pair with the matching Beyond Perfecting Powder Foundation and Concealer, creating a completely flawless face.
New to Estée Lauder is Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick, a slight twist on their statement Double Wear foundation. Comprising the foundation plus twist-top brush, select the amount you require before securing the cushion applicator back in place for next time. Smooth and seamless, you can use the cushion to apply your foundation, blending the product as you go. This foundation and expert tool create a long-lasting foundation look with superb winter coverage.
New to Estée Lauder is their Perfectionist Serum Compact, comprising a stunning powder and specialist sponge. Select the Perfectionist shade which best suits your skin and enjoy the light, smoothing look this compact leaves. Skin appears luminous and fresh, benefiting from just the right amount of coverage. Forever Estee Lauder foundation fans, we’d seriously recommend sampling this recent compact addition to the brand’s brilliant base range.
