NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer
If you’re still on the hunt for the perfect concealer, NARS’ latest concealer is your answer. Not only does in come in a plethora of colours – so there’s one for everyone – it’s also lightweight and matte, perfect for those of us with oily skin.
Tarte Tartiest PRO Amazonian Clay Palette
We’re still not over the burgundy eye yet, and this palette gives us that lovely shade with just enough drama. I mean, just look! Like all of Tarte’s eyeshadow palette, this one’s got all the winning qualities: easy to apply and blend (even without a brush!), long-lasting and extremely versatile. This one might be our favourite yet.
Diorskin Forever & Ever Loose Powder
Girls with oily skin, listen up. Gone are the days where your makeup just melts away because of all that oil. This powder helps a lot with oil control, and a little goes a long way in dusting off all that shine. Even if you don’t have oily skin, this is still a godsend. It is so light on the skin and completely colourless, so put all Casper-related worries at bay.
Colourpop Matte X Lippie Stix in Upside Down
Repeat after me: the red lip never dies. We’ve talked about Colourpop’s Goldie – burgundy plus brick-brown beauty – but this soft pink-nude shade from the Persuede Me set is also a favourite of ours. Don’t let its size fool you; it still glides on easily despite its skinniness, and has amazing lasting power. Pucker up, ladies.
YSL Touche Eclat Le Teint Radiance Awakening Foundation
If you haven’t tried this, you really need to. This foundation applies like water – so smoothly – and leaves a dewy and weightless finish. The best part: it’s eight hours of lasting radiance. Eight hours!
