This month I’ve been trying to use up some of the products that have been lurking in my make-up collection for a while before I treat myself to anything new. Here are some of my new and rediscovered favourites...
Chanel Pro Lumiere Professional Finish Makeup SPF15 £31
I’ve been using this foundation more and more... and I love it! Perfect for brides, this foundation gives long-lasting coverage with a semi-matte, radiant finish for beautiful skin.
Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Mahogany £15
Gel eyeliner is a great option when you want more definition than a pencil can give, but don’t want the stark, strong line of liquid eyeliner. Bobbi Brown’s Gel eyeliner has a soft consistency and combined with the Ultra Fine brush is foolproof to apply. It doesn’t dry instantly giving you change to adjust and blend for the perfect line. Make sure you keep the lid on to prevent it drying out. This particular colour has been discontinued but Sepia is a very close match and suits most complexions. For dark skin tones, Black Plum ink is a great choice.
Clinique Fresh Bloom Allover Colour in Peony £23.50
I use this as a blusher, rather than an all-over face powder. Using a large, fluffy brush I sweep across the palette and apply in the same direction on my cheek to give a pop of colour on the apple and a glimmer of highlighter above the cheekbone for a radiant flush.
