HOURGLASS VEIL MINERAL PRIMER

A silky, mineral-based, water-resistant primer with SPF 15 that neutralizes the skin, minimizes shine, and creates a smooth, uniform canvas. It is also supposed to absorb excess oils and minimize the appearance of pores. This primer uses a mix of titanium dioxide (2.45%) and zinc oxide (4.20%) to provide the SPF content. As a result, you may get a white cast, particularly in pictures, as these are physical blockers (which work by reflecting), as opposed to chemical ones (which work by absorbing).

 CHARLOTTE TILBURY INSTANT EYE PALETTE 

The amazing makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury has launched this eyeshadow palette that features 12 eyeshadows.

The Day Look incorporates light and fresh tones for an easy, low-key makeup look with a combination of cream, shimmery neutral brown and a matte taupe shade.

The Desk Look ups the ante a bit with shadows in pink champagne, chocolate brown and warm caramel shades for a look that’s there, but not too in-your-face for the office

The Date Look has a sexy, sultry appeal with shimmery mauve-cocoa and chocolate shades that create a flattering, feminine smokey eye.

The Disco Look is all about that “rock chick look” à la Charlotte Tilbury with a trio of champagne-gold, gold lamé and rich black shadows.

The formula features a “control-pressed” formula which is designed for less eyeshadow fallout, giving you more precision and control as you apply it. All of the shades are quite blendable and buildable, although the shimmery textures did make more of an impact than the matte ones.

Of course you can mix and match shades to create your own “daring” in between look. For example, the “Smoke” shade from the Disco Eye trio works great as an eyeliner for any of the other three looks.

 TATCHA LUMINOUS DEWY SKIN MIST

Is the favourite ‘touch-up’ product of celebrity makeup artist Amanda Bowen.
What makes this product different from the rest is that gives the feeling of a  rich moisturizer in a spray form. When misted onto the face gives an instant luminous, dewy-skin effect with a long lasting finish. This product works better on dry and combination skin but could be used on oily types too. Just make sure you are gentle with the application.
