Dolce & Gabbana
CLINIQUE CHEEK POP POWDER BLUSHER, €20
These are almost too pretty to use. Sweetly sculpted into the shape of a daisy and featuring a perfectly judged level of pigment, which means you absolutely can’t go wrong with application, no matter whether you or a pro is applying it. Try Plum Pop for guaranteed gorgeousness.
GIORGIO ARMANI LIP MAESTRO, €28
A genius product for brides, this is deeply pigmented but light as a feather to wear, ensuring your lip colour stays put through toasting (and kissing). This shade, simply entitled Pink, is a beautiful, elegant deep rose, wearable by all.
BOURJOIS PARIS IN BLOOM BLUSHER AND EYESHADOW POTS, €10.49 EACH
Bourjois do blush (as well as many other things) well. Their stalwart little round pots are worthy of a place in the makeup hall of fame and now they have been re-packaged with original artwork from their 1930s heritage collections. The Paris in Bloom range contains four blush and two eye shades and is entirely covetable.
BY TERRY CELLULAROSE BLUSH GLAC?, €73
Possibly the most high tech and insanely lovely blush you’ll ever try. Not quite a gel, not quite a cream, but something in between; this little pot of pretty is scented with pure rose and contains skin-sorting benefits too.
AERIN AMBER MUSK, €108
If you haven’t tried the suite of scents designed by Aerin Lauder, now is the time. Amber Musk is a sensual mix of sweet florals, warm amber and subtle musk. Also containing a note of Rose Centifolia Absolute, this is a supremely elegant fragrance for your BASH day.
CHANEL LES 4 OMBRES, €50
Containing four gorgeous eye shades, this compact is all you need for a soft, pretty bridal look. Try the peach or pink base tones and build the intensity with the darker colour. Go as dark as you dare for daytime and bring the compact with you to add another layer of drama as the party progresses to night.
BASH Volume 4 is on shelves now.
