If the autumn/winter 2013 shows from Alexander Wang, Derek Lam, and Victoria Beckham were anything to go by, it’s time to step away from the foundation, eyeliner and lipstick. For the perfect no makeup look this winter simply invest in these four key products.
1. Tinted Moisturiser or BB Cream: The ultimate beauty trifecta, they’re packed with SPF and keep skin hydrated all day long, with a bonus golden glow. Plus they’re brilliantly buildable, meaning you can easily layer the product to cover up unwanted redness, like around the nose, chin and t-zone, without the product looking patchy or uneven. Try: Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Sensitive RRP $17.49
2. Clear Lipgloss: Once you’re done prettying up your pucker, use as a highlighter along the top of the cheekbones, the brow bone and the cupids bow. Try: MAC Clear Lipglass RRP $38.00
3. Clear Mascara: A product you probably haven’t used since the 90’s but two coats is all you need to give your lashes just the right amount of shine and definition. Once you’re done coating your lashes, use the excess product on the wand to groom your brows, or tame fly-aways around your hairline. Try: Maybelline Great Lash In Clear RRP $17.99
4. Cheek Stain: Look for a creme-based stain as unlike a powder, creme’s are easier to blend on-the-go, all you need is your index finger and skin is left with the prettiest, dewy flush of colour. Try: BECCA Beach Tint RRP $59.00
