We are self-confessed beauty obsessives. We love getting our hands on the latest makeup and skincare, and before we know it, our beauty cupboard is piling up! But we all know that there are some beauty staples that never go out of fashion. Our edit of essential beauty is a capsule collection of our favourite makeup must-haves that transcend seasons.
Your Lips But Better Lipstick
We all have one of these in our makeup bag. The perfect go-to lipstick that works whether you need a quick touch-up before a daytime date, or before you go into the boardroom, or even a night out on the town. This lipstick says that you are enhancing your natural beauty, rather than completely transforming into a new person! We love the Matte Revolution lipstick in Pillow Talk, which complements the shade of your natural lip colour.
Whether it’s the depths of winter, the height of summer or everywhere in between, a glow-giving face primer is essential to your makeup routine. A primer will help to even your skin tone, and add a touch of radiance so that when you apply your foundation on top, you glow from within. If you have gorgeous skin, you can just use a the primer to add luminosity, and you’re good to go – perfect for beach holidays!
Help your skin with hydration with a rich moisturiser. Whether you have dry, oily or combination skin, your complexion will always need to keep hydrated. A rich formula will help to nourish your skin, adding lots of vitamins and essential oils to create the illusion of a plumped-up complexion.
No time to do your makeup? We’ve all been there. That’s why it’s absolutely essential to have a good eyebrow gel in your makeup bag. Fill in any sparser areas in 30 seconds with a thin spoolie brush that will give your brows some shape and TLC. This is ideal for some last-minute grooming before dashing out the door, don’t leave home without it!
A Signature Scent
When you want to be remembered, make it for your gorgeous perfume. Every woman should have a signature scent to enthrall and mesmerise. We love the Scent of a Dream perfume, with floral notes that develop over time. This also makes a wonderful gift for friends and family.
