FEBRUARY ISSUE 2021 MAKEUP POWER

Hot List: Mood-Lifting Makeup

Our Chief Merchandising Officer reveals the makeup must-haves that never fail to lift her self-esteem.

01

By Terry

Cellularose Brightening CC Serum, £48.80

During the winter, my skin is really dry, so I tend to reach for hydrating creams rather than powders. This is a serious multitasker and helps to even out skin tone and illuminate my complexion instantly. Rosehip oil is a key ingredient, so it boosts hydration too.

RMS Beauty

"Un" Cover-Up Concealer, £27.20

This amazing little pot can be used as a concealer or as a full foundation. What I love most is that it can be applied with either your fingers or a brush. It has a very natural finish and blends and builds easily.

IT Cosmetics

CC+ Cream Original SPF50+, £26.00

When I feel like I need a little bit more coverage, this skincare-makeup hybrid has become my new go-to. It takes seconds to apply and smoothes out redness and uneven tones effortlessly without looking cakey.

Chantecaille

Radiance Gel Bronzer Travel Size, £28.80

A little goes a long way with this bronzer and it’s very easy to blend, so you can either target specific areas of the face or mix it into your CC Cream for an all-over bronzy glow.

Hourglass

Arch Brow Shaping Gel, £21.60

I always fill in my brows. If I do nothing else, I do this because it frames the rest of my face and makes me feel a bit more made up. This forgiving brow gel makes the task super quick and easy, and it comes in several shades.

Chantecaille

Le Stylo Ultra Slim, £24.00

Liquid liner is by far the easiest way to achieve a winged eye. It’s my go-to when I need to boost my confidence as it always makes my eyes look more smiley and cheerful.

Laura Mercier

Caviar Volume Panoramic Mascara, £17.60

While I do love many mascaras for achieving different lash effects, this is my favourite for instantly fluttery and flirty lashes that aren’t weighed down. It really makes my eyes look bigger and brighter.

Charlotte Tilbury

Lip Cheat Lip Liner, £13.60

I use this pencil to create a well-defined base for my lips that lasts all day. My trick is to line and then fill them in so the colour is uniform.

Nars

Afterglow Lip Balm, £18.40

My lips are always super chapped at this time of year, so this dreamy formula keeps them hydrated and adds a subtle tint.

Hourglass

Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss, £23.20

If you’re not a fan of lip glosses because of the sticky texture, I implore you to try one of these. The formula plumps, hydrates and stays put all day without any stickiness. My favourite shades are Canvas, Prose or Ignite, but I love Icon or Cosmic for something brighter.
