Why waste money buying tones of products? These amazing multi-taskers work hard at fixing more than just one beauty dilemma. But don’t just take our word for it; go and try some of these wonder buys, and make sure you stock up – we wouldn’t be without any of these handy hero’s.
This applies to pretty much any shimmering lip gloss, but Mac’s Cinderella Eye Glosses are our personal favorites. These pretty pearly pots are far easier to apply than tube glosses and can also be used as a highlighter, pressed into the brow bone, onto the cheek bones and down the nose. Or, if you want to go back to basics, use these eye glosses on your lips like good old glosses were intended.
Get your whole body glowing with this illuminating baked powder – it’s perfect as a highlighter on your face and body and also works as an eyeshadow. Sweep it over your chest and collarbones on holiday for a soft pearly finish.
The iconic award winning Eight Hour Cream should already be in your beauty bag, but if it’s not (we can’t believe it’s not), then you’re missing out! The skin saving balm is a makeup artist’s must have, which works wonders when your skin is in need of serious hydration, fast! Use it to soothe chapped lips, cracked elbows and knees, dry hands and skin irritations or as a highlighter, brushed into unruly brows – the list goes on.
Is it a liner? Is it a brow pen? Well, that decision is pretty much down to you, because Stila’s clever pen can be either. Use above your lash-line to create a feline flick or cheat Cara D’s power brows by drawing individual hairs onto areas where your brows are sparse. It creates a much more natural finish than a pencil – genius!
If you are not already the proud owner of one of Nars’ most coveted products – The Multiple – then you better head down to the shops and pick one up this shade. Every shade is amazing and they can be used as a blusher, bronzer, highlighter – need I go on? Use it wherever you like! It’s the one makeup product I always take on holiday.
The Holy Grail of cream blushers (in our opinion), Stila’s lip and cheek cream is also loved by supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and for good reason, it’s SO good. It comes in 15 different shades so there’s one for everyone, Camellia is our colour of choice – a gorgous peachy brown, apply to the apples of your cheeks using your fingers and blend, or press into lips. The creamy formula leaves a more natural looking flush than a powder.
This does-it-all wonder gel will literally transform your skin (and perhaps your life). It’s your answer to nearly all complexion emergencies: enlarged pores, acne, dryness, roughness, breakouts, uneven skin tone – there’s nothing this gel can’t do! Use either under or over makeup on any problem areas and voila your skin is saved! Sadly, it’s not available yet but will be hitting House Of Fraser soon.
Foundation? Concealer? Why choose when you can get both in one bottle! This 2-in-1 hybrid (foundcealer?) will save you oodles of time in the mornings and banishes dark circles while getting you the best skin you’ve seen all at once. Use the clever wand to first apply to areas that need concealing – dark circles, spots, around the nose – then sweep over the rest of the face and blend using fingers or a foundation brush.
Frizzy hair and dry skin? Save your pennies and get yourself one bottle of this luxe hair and body oil. The perfect product to bring on holiday, it tames frizzes, flyaway’s and even the most unruly tresses, whilst keeping your skin supple and silky smooth. It smells amazing and contains a blend of oils including argan, apricot and pomegranate – trust us you’ll want to cover your entire body in this!
