Lancôme Bienfait UV SPF 50+
Still haven’t found THE perfect sunscreen to wear under your foundation? Try Lancôme’s Bienfait UV. It is super easy to blend because of its “super fluid” texture, dries quick and does not leave a sticky after-feeling on your skin at all.
Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Aqua Foundation
I came across this by chance on my recent trip to Tokyo and while I’ve found many great liquid foundations, this one might be the best one yet. Apart from being light and easy to blend, it also doesn’t oxidise and darken by the end of the day, and doesn’t cake in cold weather. Slight disclaimer: the colours are actually darker than they appear, so go one shade lighter than your usual shade.
Dior Addict Fluid Stick in Pandore
Never not on the hunt for the next best red lipstick. This latest release from Dior is pretty on the outside and packs intense colour and shine on the inside. I personally like Pandore, but there’s a whole range of other colours to choose from.
RCMA No-Colour Powder
It looks like something out of an arts and craft box, but don’t let the simple packaging deceive you. Apparently a makeup secret among celebrity makeup artists, I love how incredibly lightweight it is and how it doesn’t cake. It is also totally translucent, so don’t let the white colour scare you.
Louis Vuitton Les Parfums in Turbulences
While I do have some favourite fragrances, I’m generally not the sort to wear perfume everyday. Yet, I find myself drawn to this particular number from Louis Vuitton’s Les Parfums collection. Containing notes of jasmine, tuberose, leather, magnolia and rose, I find this fragrance to be light, natural and fresh. Something that I can easily wear daily, from day to night.
