Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Antipollution Sunshine Drops

I mix one-to-two drops of this into my moisturiser before makeup and it completely lifts my complexion and gives an instant glow. I also love how it protects from environmental damage and is packed full of skin-friendly antioxidants.


Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer

This is a great multitasker and a little goes a long way. I use mine to brighten dark circles under my eyes. One dot under each eye makes my complexion look instantly more refreshed. The shade range is great too.

Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder

I’m not usually a big fan of powdered products, but I live for the glow this gives. It’s really finely milled and it’s a great colour on my skin tone. I use a tiny bit under my eyes to set my concealer too.


NARS Blush

Blusher adds a really fun and youthful look to your face and NARS without a doubt do the best blushers. The colours are incredibly bright and have great pay-off. I like to apply my blusher quite high up on my cheekbones and more towards my temples. This really lifts the whole face. Oh and a little bit on the tip of my nose…

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter

This highlighter is another firm favourite of mine as it’s not too sparkly and truly gives a natural glow. It’s slightly gold too, which really compliments my skin tone.
