Wading through the vast amount of beauty products out there can be tricky. How do you know if it will actually do what it claims on the packaging? With so many creams, serums and masks promising flawless skin but failing to deliver, perhaps you have given up hope.
List for Life is here to help you out though, because we all want glowing skin, right? Here are five beauty brands whose products really work. Trust us.
1. A bronzer/blusher combo
A combination of satin and matte powders, the By Terry Sun Designer Palette is a great way to build multi-dimensional colour rather than harsh lines that some block bronzers can give. The mix of blush and bronzer colours in the palette are flattering on everyone and a little goes a long way. This will be your new summer fave, promise!
2. Mineral makeup
Founded in San Francisco, BareMinerals offers mineral make-up that clears up your complexion whilst also making you look radiant. Their powder foundation lets you build up to the exact coverage that you want. This starter kit, £39, includes a primer, two shades of foundation, a brush, a bronzer and a mineral veil to hold everything in place, all in a make-up bag. If you prefer a liquid coverage to a powder one, give their Complexion Rescue, £26, a try. The innovative formula is a BB cream, a CC cream and a tinted moisturiser all in one and it will give you an amazing glow. You can thank us later.
3. Fake Tan
This is an obvi choice but you might have overlooked it. Fake tan isn’t only for pre-beach/pre-party skin prepping guys! If applied carefully you can use this for subtle colour even for the office (yep, really!) and wear it under makeup. This one from Fake Bake won’t streak on you (lol) and it will give your skin a nice glow that’s more Blake Lively in The Shallows than TOWIE in Marbs.
4. Solid foundations
The Zelens Hydro Shiso Balancing Moisturiser is something you need in your life. Don’t let the no-frills packaging make you think this is an ordinary face cream – it so isn’t. Why? Well firstly it’s the perfect base for number 3 (above). Then it is super moisturising AND it contains hyaluronic acid that’s smoothing and plumping. Jordan Dunn is a huge fan and, well, her skin is perfection. We want what she’s having and this is it!
5. Good coverage
Glowing skin isn’t glowing if it’s not flawless. We all have pimples, blemishes, redness etc but this magical little pencil from Urban Decay can hide all of those problems in a flash. Conceal and let your skin glow.
After using all of the above you’re going to look like this. Promise!
