There are those days when you get up feeling great, and others when you have loads to do and you simply don’t feel your best, and if you’re an ‘I need to feel groomed or I won’t be happy’ person, as I am, you want to be able to get up, make up and get out and know that what you’re wearing on your face will stay put all day. So I’ve picked my 6 fast fixes from Bobbi Brown, Nars, Clinique, Smashbox, Laura Mercier, oh and Nars again that will never let you down and will stay around as long as you want them to.
I’m not one of those people who likes to pile on the powder, far from it, I prefer a very natural look. These are products that really work, from Laura Mercier’s Foundation Primer (and how did we ever manage without that product? I really can’t remember), Bobbi Brown Concealer, Smashbox Soft Lights which give a very subtle all-over glow, Nars Illuminator in Copacabana which brightens up your cheekbones, Clinique Soft Bronze Long Last lipstick which will do wonders for just about anyone and the one and only Nars Blush in Orgasm. I defy you to find a better colour.
As you can see this is not about foundation, powder, eye liner, shadow or mascara, but about products that will give you just that little extra lift when you need it. And trust me, they do. I’m sure there are loads more, but these are tried and tested favourites and they won’t let you down.
Have an uplifting weekend – let’s hope the sun stays out! It’s about time, don’t you think?
