3 for Tuesday: SS20 beauty must-buys

SS20 beauty is everywhere, but what are the pieces worth investing in? With so many recommendations from all angles, it’s hard to know. From luxury to budget, there’s something worth picking up…


NAIL IT

I’m mad about this bit of genius from CND Vinylux. They’ve brought out a double ended nail polish, with the colour at one end, and at the other end, the famous CND Weekly Top Coat. It has their ProLight Technology which cures in daylight and makes for a much longer-lasting manicure. The formulas contain jojoba oil, keratin and vitamin E too to mind your nails.

The shades in the range include some of the most popular from the brand, including Negligee, Field Fox, Lobster Roll, and Wildfire, an absolute classic and one of the bestselling Shellac and Vinylux shades CND have.

SPRING PALETTE

Bobbi Brown’s collaboration with London-based artist Morag Myerscough is absolutely divine. It’s a three-piece collection that has a highlighting powder, some Crushed lipsticks and this – a gorgeous and fresh eyeshadow palette with colours that are ideal for SS20.

The palette features nine shades in a mix of finishes and is €45.

Dior Diorskin Nude Luminizer Glow Vibes Highlighter

€45.50 from brownthomas.com

Dior’s SS20 collection for beauty is the very definition of spring time. It’s colourful, bright, vibrant and features lots of pinks, peaches and turquoise shades, a real punch of energy to remind us to lighten up. I particularly like their highlighter.

Although everyone and their mother has a highlighter at the moment, Dior’s buttery Diorskin Nude Luminizer Glow Vibes one is really, really lovely to use and gives a subtle sheen rather than a can-be-seen-from-space glare.
