The Serious Glow Giver

NARS Tinted Glow Booster

An innovative new fluid which is best thought of as a customisable complexion enhancer. Simply wear alone for a brighter and more glowy version of your own skin, or under foundation for a truly filtered finish. Not only does it give a seamless and soft-focus finish, the jojoba complex helps to nourish skin and the coloured pearls packed in to the formula really do give a glow like no other.


The Lightweight Perfector

Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturizer SPF15

This one does exactly what it is – a tinted moisturiser which looks just like skin. Packed with a kind-to-skin blend of natural ingredients including green tea and honeysuckle, this lightweight lotion covers imperfections, keeps skin moisturised and will even protect with SPF15.

The Anti-Ageing Elixir

Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow Face Primer

Another which can double up as a stand alone product or be worn under foundation, this leaves skin looking youthful and hydrated. The translucent formula blends like a dream in to any skin tone and the peptide complex works to improve skin’s elasticity and those pesky fine lines.


The Lit From Within Look

Becca Backlight Priming Filter

A revolutionary primer which blurs imperfections and gives a pretty immense glow too thanks to the unique blend of crushed pearls. If you’re having a good skin day, this will be all your need for a quick radiance-boost, but if you’re needing a little extra help, this will make way for an airbrushed finish and really make it stay put.

The Staple Stick

Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick

If there was ever a must-buy complexion hero for your handbag it’s this one – a high-performance stick which has the power of a concealer and liquid foundation but the weightlessness of a powder. The coverage is high making it great for dark circles and blemishes and the waterproof formula won’t budge for up to 12 hours. Dot where you need it most and buff in using a brush or your ring finger.
