Skincare, makeup and perfumery is very personal to us. I find that discovering new beauty products can lead to finding treasure. Here are my Top 10 Beauty Picks this season:
Serum’s are really testing the beauty industry lately, and with my support – I can emphasise the importance of using a serum. Serum’s gives your moisturiser a boost, helping your products target your skin’s needs better; but also, being a good barrier between your skin and your makeup. Lumene’s Arctic Berry Oil-Cocktail is packed with Vitamin C and other antioxidants that help replenish and smooth dry skin. I have found this to increase the longevity of my moisturisers for up to 12 hours and longer – exactly what we need for long days!
Mentioned before in an article, this is the Emerald City in a tub – I can guarantee you won’t be tapping your ruby heels to go home because this moisturiser is all you need to get by. Enriched with Milk’s Desert Milk, Argan Milk, Fig Milk and Oat Milk – it is the perfect moisturiser for harsh environments. Whilst I may self-isolating and am in the comfort of my own home – I can truly enjoy the 100% vegan, cruelty and paraben free moisturiser.
We all need to protect our skin from UVA/UVB that come to attack us every day – this is your main priority for anti-aging! BIODERMA has taken this further by creating a daily moisturiser with vitamin c and e to protects your skin from sun damage and pollution – only to focus on helping hyperpigmentation. Helping to unify your complexion, it targets dark spots. This SPF helps improve your dark spots and prevents further hyperpigmentation that could be caused by sun exposure.
This is your answer to eliminating under-eye bags. I no longer need my morning cup of coffee, I just massage this under my eyes and et voila, I am ready for a work’s day whilst my Magic Eye Rescue Cream prevents fine lines, making me look fresh and ready and re-densifying the most fragile part of my skin. The magic is in the winter daphne stem cells that energises my skin, and packing my skin with vitamin a, c and e.
Constantly washing your hands and sanitising? Are your cuticles screeching for hydration? Same.
Lumene’s Nutri-recharging Skin Saviour Balm became my protector, being an additional barrier to my skin to help reduce dehydration. This product is enriched with Nordic Chaga, this ingredient is your new friend. Nordic Chaga is superfood for your skin, providing dry patches with optimal hydration.
I remember seeing EOS in Miley Cyrus’s ‘We Can’t Stop’, and my young self was addicted to the formula behind EOS’s lip balms. Just as things couldn’t get any better, EOS came rolling and hit a strike – they’ve reformulated! Their new formula is now 95% organic and 100% natural, packing my lips with shea butter and jojoba oil. It’s fun, its cruelty free, paraben free, yummy and packed with moisture.
Non tacky, smells delicious and works perfectly for everyone. This Universal Lip Luminizer is perfect for taking you from bed to the living room for a conference call – makeup or no makeup, FENTY’s Gloss Bomb is a staple in my bag. Plus, the shea butter is the cherry on top, making this gloss fabulous for everyday use. My shade is Sweet Mouth – which will you pick?
I have always used CHANEL foundations, from the Vitalumiere to the Les Beiges Healthy Glow; now I’ve met my match – the Les Beiges Eau De Teint Foundation. Prepped with SPF 25, this foundation also has kalanchoe extract and UV filters. This is more than just a foundation; this is the ideal foundation for everyday as it contributes to your skin’s wellbeing. This is a must for all foundation wearers!
I have been reaching for this perfume for more than 2 years, the fruity pear note just uplifts my day. My ideal scent, feminine with the right balance between powdery and sweet – modern yet sophisticated. I suggest to everyone to explore perfumes to find your unique scent that matches your personality, there is so much more than the commercial scents, and with my Beauty Picks being focused on discovery, this is one for you to try, Maison Christian Dior has 26 more scents for you to explore!
YMC’s first fragrance, and a successful one too. Dirty Rose, spicy and floral – testing the boundaries of what it unisex is. Sweet enough for the feminine, and spicy enough for the masculine, this bottle of scent captures the new generation. This scent is intoxicating, and I live for it – this bold scent with impertinent tones may push my Belle de Jour to the side, we’ll have to see. This is the perfume to boosts confidence, and attitude (like I don’t have enough…).
