Though the weather is still freezing, for all my London Summer Brides, it’s time to think about that beautiful radiant skin!
So often I get asked about my kit must haves and being a franchisee for central and south west London my shopping options are countless –however Westfield in White City and Space NK are always favourites of mine.
My kit is forever changing but here are a few of my wonder makeup products of the moment!
First is the Double Wear BB Brush on Glow pen by Estee Lauder. Similar to the YSL Touche Eclat pen but in my opinion so much better! The problem with the Touche Eclat was that lots of people were using it to try and conceal when it acted like more of a highlighter and didn’t really give the coverage. The Estee Lauder BB pen does the whole lot! It has enough coverage to be used as a concealer all while giving your skin the most wonderful glow! Having naturally looking amazing fresh skin doesn’t mean you have to have minimal coverage! I use this pen to highlight and on the inner planes of the face to brighten and conceal!
I am a huge fan of cream blushers, especially for summer. There are millions to choose from, at the moment I am using the Le Maquillage palette, which has an amazing range of colours and suits all skin tones/types. I also use NARS cream blush/bronze palette in ‘Maui/Palm Beach’, which is perfect for olive skin tones.
To have long lasting makeups any cream based makeup should be set with a powder. But rather than undoing all your hard work creating a wonderfully dewy coverage by matting it with a thick powder, choose something like a MAC mineralize powder to set. Its mineral pigments will give the skin a more radiant finish rather than one that’s too matte.
