Beauty picks that make the best work companions
Everyone’s getting busier; the holiday rush is here.
The moment I got off the plane from my three-week trip to the United States, I immediately thought about the other stuff I had to accomplish: meetings, shoots, brainstorming sessions, family duties, product launches and, lest I forget, sitting down to write my weekly take on fashion and beauty.
Testing out beauty products is one of the perks of being busy, since there’s nothing more satisfying than seeing one’s eyeliner still intact even after a long day.
I bring Make Up for Ever 5 Camouflage Cream Palette Color Corrector & Concealer with me when I need to make sure I’ve got clear skin. It has five different shades for brightening, neutralizing, concealing, highlighting and sculpting. This plus your foundation will be great for photo shoots or nights out.
I discovered this Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel recently, but I can tell you that it’s going to be a staple in my kit. I had it on while swimming and it did not smudge, staying true to its claims that it is has a long-lasting formula that’s crease-proof. I have the black one, but it also comes in other colors.
Jane Iredale PurePressed Blush in Flawless is my favorite blush at the moment, as it gives a soft, subtle wash of color. It’s also something that you don’t have to worry about wearing too much of, as it’s noncomedogenic and made with skincare properties like minerals and antioxidants. Plus, it’s vegan!
Other products from this brand have always been good, and this Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Eyeshadow Palette in The Dolce Vita is no exception. I use this from day to night, as the four colors are universal and are a good combination. You can use all four for a dramatic eye or just one of the matte ones for a casual eye look, or combine two, depending on your preference.
You appreciate the value of a good moisturizer when you’re stressed and you know your skin is feeling it, too. La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Cream has a unique blend of caviar which helps skin’s appearance. It has lifting and firming benefits, plus helps skin look tightened, toned and supple.
Every night, it’s important to exfoliate your lips. If you do it on your face, you shouldn’t neglect the lips. With Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, you melt away all the dead skin cells from your puckers. You apply it at night before going to bed and wipe it off in the morning to reveal smooth lips.
