Meet The Latest Makeup Buys To Have On Your Radar

New-In Makeup Products October 2023 | Space NK
Summer is here! Which (let’s be honest) could mean many things. It could mean an absolute scorcher is just around the corner, sparking the need for sandals - plus pedicures, a quick glow-up for our soon-to-be exposed limbs, and a summery hair do-over. Or it could mean having an umbrella on hand at all times.

One thing we’re certain of however, is that the lighter, hopefully brighter season calls for a switch up. And yes, we’re talking about makeup. Lighter, glowier formulas take the place of heavier foundations, bronzers become our new base friend, and colour is suddenly essential - whether that’s a punchier blush, something bolder for our nails, or sweeter shades on lips.

And we mustn’t forget about the glow. From skincare that brings out our most luminous self, to highlighters, shimmers, glosses and more, reflecting light (however much there is in the sky) is the summer beauty hack we can’t wait to get in motion. Which products are we calling on for our summer beauty overhaul? Read on…

8 Summer Makeup Must-Haves For 2022


Charlotte Tilbury

Beautiful Skin Sun-Kissed Glow Bronzer, $57.00

Sculpted, glowy skin is something makeup mogul Charlotte Tilbury knows a thing or two about. Maybe that’s why her new cream bronzer is quite possibly our favourite yet. A melt-in moussy formula that leaves a flawless finish, boosted with moisturising hyaluronic acid and sunshine provitamin D3. Plus it comes in four skin-flattering tones. We’re buying our standard shade for now, aaand a deeper one for when the holiday tan comes into play.



Voyeur Waterproof Gel Eyeliner, $28.00

Want an eyeliner that glides on effortlessly and then it stays in place all day, no matter what? Then look no further than Hourglass’ Voyeur Waterproof Gel Eyeliner. With five smokey shades to choose from, this waterproof gel liner from Hourglass is the summertime eye definer we won’t leave the house without. Honestly, even pool days can be enhanced with a sweep of this, splashes and all.



Sunflower Lip Tint Hydrating Balm - Sunbeam Collection, $35.00

How do we take a nude lip into summer? With a whopping injection of moisture. That’s what we love so much about this lipstick newbie from Chantecaille. The ultra-nourishing sheer balm comes in two wearable nude shades, both infused with cherry and rose extracts for an extra healthy shine boost. And did we mention the packaging? Seriously. What says summer more than neon? We’re officially obsessed, and guarantee you will be too.



L'Oxygéné - Jazz Me Up, $21.00

Orange. It’s the shade of the season, didn’t you know? And a surprisingly versatile one at that. But for those who aren’t quite ready to dive straight in with a juicy tangerine lip or sunrise lids, try this - a deliciously mellow coral lacquer for nails. All that’s needed now is a fruity cocktail to pair our newly manicured nails with.


Laura Mercier

Tinted Moisturiser Light Revealer Natural Skin Illuminator, $52.00

Don’t get us wrong, there’s always going to be a spot for high-coverage foundation in our cosmetics bag. But when it comes to summer 2022 skin, sheer is the key. Even better when that sheer skin perfector is crafted with luminescent pearls to bounce light off imperfections and clever pigments that give skin a soft-focus finish. Oh, and the added protection of SPF25 too. Sorry old foundation, but we’re pausing you until November.


By Terry

Brightening CC Liquid Blush Limited Edition, $43.00

Top up your cheek colour on the go with this liquid blush pen with a built-in brush applicator. Two summery shades containing tiny light-reflecting prisms and a skin-loving hydrators in the formula guarantee a healthy-looking flush in one swoop, wherever you may be. Which hue should we choose? Both are lovely, but our vote goes to Rosy Flash - a pearlescent peach tone with a true summer 2022 feel.



Eyeshadow Quad, $56.00

When it comes to eyeshadow, we know what suits us, and - if we’re honest - we don’t love straying from that too much. But when a palette (like this one) offers us a chance to go just one step beyond the comfort zone with a hint of coral and a touch of shimmer, we can’t help but be tempted. It can’t hurt that all four shades in the palette look truly brilliant on any skin tone too.



Sunbeam Cheek and Eye Shade Limited Edition, N/A

Sometimes all our after-sun look needs is a touch of shimmer. A sweep on the eyelids, a touch onto cheekbones, a dab onto the cupids bow, and voila - we’re ready for sunset cocktails. This new copper-toned compact from Chantecaille’s Summer Collection is perfect for just that. It’s a gel-powder hybrid highlighter for eyes and cheeks, packed full of pearly, light-reflecting particles. Summer glow, here we come.
