Cheat your way to radiant summer skin with these five beauty products.
1. Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow, €49
Wonderglow is a color-correcting primer that gives what Tilbury herself has called??a Gisele supermodel filter? and who doesn’t want that on their face? You can use underneath foundation or on it’s own for the dewy, pore-less, radiant and definitely not sweaty look you want on your holidays.
2. LAURA MERCIER ILLUMINATING TINTED MOISTURISER, €41
If you can afford to get away without a lot of coverage in the sun’s unforgiving glare, the Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturiser is sheer and lightweight for a glowing, no-make up look. Just dab some light concealer on your spots. There’s a?Broad Spectrum SPF 20 UVB/UVA sunscreen and antioxidant vitamin E?to help protect your skin. Micronized pearl pigments will add to your radiant glow but if you have rosacea or acne scars, the illumination won’t compliment your skin.
3. Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream, €90
I know, at €90 a jar, it would wanna be magic. You can only put that kind of a price on your beauty product and call it Magic Cream if you’re pretty confident, so before you start tutting “notions,” Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream really is worth the 90 quid. It’s made with an anti-ageing BioNymph Peptide Complex, combined with floral extracts and a hyaluronic acid booster to lift and flood the skin with moisture and to?give you the perfect canvas to apply your makeup. It’s perfect for holidays in the sunshine, with an anti- UVA filter to protect the skin from ageing effects of the sun and for rehydrating dull skin after a long flight.
4. MAC MINERALIZE SKINFINISH in ‘GOLD DEPOSIT’, €28.50
MAC’S Mineralize Skinfinish in Gold Deposit is a’reflective copper bronze that when stroked?on the apples of your cheeks, the tip of your nose, across your forehead and on your collarbones, will really let you cheat a summer glow.
5. MAC STROBE CREAM, €34
Strobe Cream is a cult product for those who know their strobing from their contouring. It’s moisturising but not greasy, and light reflecting particles will make your skin look radiant. Apply underneath or mixed with your foundation, or apply to your cheekbones as a highlight.
