In search of a fresh, glowing weekend makeup routine that is quick and easy to apply? Look no further than these 5 essential products, no brushes necessary…
Tinted Eye Brightener
One of our under eye classics. For someone that doesn’t like too much coverage under their eyes but wants a little added brightness. This is a creamy, lightweight formula that gives a brightening effect to the under eye area without looking too heavy.
Take a look at your under eye darkness and assess the colour you can see. If your dark circles are more Pink/Purple go for one of the ‘Bisque’ tones, or if your darkness is more Brown/Green opt for one of the ‘Peach’ tones.
Illuminating Moisture Balm
My Ultimate Skin Glow product! Since this launched over a year ago I have had one in my makeup bag at all times..I have a slight addiction to this balm!
Warm the balm up in your fingers and then apply underneath or on top of makeup for an instant radiance boost.
You can also mix into your foundation, or wear alone for those days that you don’t want to wear makeup but want a healthier looking complexion.
For a more even skin tone without having to use foundation!! Apply straight from the sponge applicator (it works like a beauty blender) to any areas you feel need correcting and the wand gives you retouched looking skin instantly.
I always layer this with the Illuminating Moisture Balm and it creates the most beautiful glowing finish (if you have an oiler skin type prep your skin with Hydrating Gel Cream instead).
TIP : Mix 1 pump of illuminating balm with some of your retouching wand on the back of your hand and smooth over your skin for an even, glowing base in minimal time! My ‘go to’ weekend duo.
Cheek Glow Palette (Limited Edition)
A 2 in 1 product that instantly creates that ‘Bobbi Glow’. This palette was first introduced to me at New York Fashion Week, Bobbi had them to hand during all of our shows. We used them to get that healthy looking, glowing skin instantly – the main trend of the SS17 season.
Use the blush tone over the apples of your cheek followed by the highlight shade pressed onto the highest point of your cheekbones.
If, like me, you like glow overload, you can layer these palettes! I use the Milk Chocolate palette for my bronzer followed by the Pink Flush palette as my blush and highlight.
Extra Lip Tint
This nourishing lip balm instantly smoothes and plumps lips with a sheer finish, perfect for those that don’t like lipstick but are wanting a hint of colour. When applied the colour adapts to your own lip tone, revealing instantly a natural everyday lip shade that suits you.
I am a huge lover of lipstick personally, so a tint alone usually isn’t enough for me. Saying this, I have absolutely fallen in love with this formula, so I like to layer it with a lip pencil (currently loving Rose) underneath which creates the most perfect winter lip texture.
All the nourishment of a balm, with the pigment of a lipstick…PERFECTION!
Now all you need to add is a bit of mascara and brow pencil if you fancy and you are good to go! The easiest makeup with a gorgeous glow…just what we need in time for Spring…
