Embrace your natural beauty!
For years, my everyday makeup routine has been nothing to write home about; foundation, blush, gloss, mascara, and I’m out the door.
Lately, however, I find myself gravitating toward a more stripped-back makeup look, a less evolved, but equally enhancing version of the aforementioned, if you will.
Call it laziness or call it growing older, but at 31, I can say the days of the full getup of bold glam are behind me.
While everyone is different when it comes to achieving their soft glam look, over the last couple of months, three products have really stood out to me.
They have swiftly become my go-to on those days when I just want to add a little colour and femininity but still embrace my God-given face.
KASH Beauty – Skin Glaze Blusher
I will forever be thankful for this creation that makeup mastermind, Keilidh Cashell, has created and shared with us.
You could even say that the sway towards a more natural look was born from this exact KASH Beauty product.
The Skin Glaze blushers are an illuminating liquid blush, which makes ALL the difference to a powdered one, seriously.
The creamy and easy-to-blend mixture is divine on natural skin and comes in a range of gorgeous colour choices from peach (my go-to) to pink, and from red to rose.
Luna By Lisa – Beige Sculpt Cream Bronzer
While I’m on my journey towards embracing my natural skin, it’s not an overnight process.
As a girl with pale skin and freckles, it’s all about baby steps.
This is where Luna By Lisa has been a saving grace for me with its Sculpt Cream Bronzer.
This compact and lightweight creamy bronzer gives just the right amount of glow and colour.
With its balmy consistency, it melts into your skin for that super easy application and weightless feel you just don’t really get with foundation.
The Sculpt Cream Bronzer is ideal for achieving a natural bronze.
Charlotte Tilbury – Collagen Lip Bath Icon
As we all very well know, Charlotte Tilbury changed the makeup application game.
My first ever product from her eponymous brand was the Collagen Lip Bath Icons Kit, which comes with a trio of mini lip gloss (that includes the beloved Pillow Talk shade!)
Unlike a lot of other glosses, the Lip Baths are not sticky and are packed with skin-loving ingredients to moisturise and hydrate.
Having the clear Refresh Rose gloss in your handbag is perfect for those days when you want to ditch the lipstick without compromising a natural but fuller-looking lip.
The gorgeous peppermint smell is an added bonus along with the heart-shaped applicator!
