Here’s how you achieve the ultimate look for an end-of-the-year bash.
The new Ambient Lighting Edit in Surreal Light by Hourglass has everything you need to give your complexion the most flattering glow, as if soft sunlight is touching your skin. The palette has five shades never before offered for the powder, bronzer, blushes and highlighter. Photoluminescent technology is used to capture and diffuse light, creating skin with a flawless look.
Burberry’s Shimmer Dust in Gold Glitter No. 01 is inspired by beautiful sequinned designs taken straight from the autumn/winter 2016 show. This glass pot of loose gold glitter packs a punch. Dab direct onto the eyelids for wow factor or dust lightly around the eyes, cheekbones and décolletage for a subtle shine. Available at Net-A-Porter.
The Shiseido Maquillage Essence Gel Rouge has a special formula that includes adhesive oil, shape memory gel oil and lustre regeneration oil base to help plump up the lips. It is available in Shiseido’s limited-edition, 10th anniversary Lady Collaboration Book, presented in collaboration with Jun Hasegawa and Kiko Mizuhara. If you’ve ever dreamed of looking like Mizuhara, here’s a chance to replicate her make-up.
Show Beauty’s Divine Thickening Mist is a lightweight mist, with botanical extracts including aloe vera, mango, kiwi and ginger lily, to give body to individual strands of hair while providing long-lasting hold and shine. The formula prevents sun damage and slows colour from fading. Spray generously through damp hair and follow with styling. Heat after application for best results.
Finish with a pop of red with YSL Beauté La Laque Couture No. 74 Rouge Over Noir. The ultra-glossy Rouge Over Noir is a seductive blood-red nail varnish made to enchant. The tantalising shade has a dark undertone that is almost black. The long-wear formula uses essential oils to strengthen and moisturise nails, and to protect from chipping and cracking.
