With a frosty weekend ahead here in Auckland, we're turning to our makeup favourites to keep us feeling inspired.
In part two of our Winter Beauty series, read on to learn about our favourite makeup products of the moment, and how we're wearing them.
Beautiful Jane Etheridge in our Olympia Aria Hoops; The Holy Grail, Laura Mercier Translucent Powder, available at MECCA.
The ultimate base
Their matching Concealer
is also a current favourite - on days where you don't want a full face of makeup, this is all you need. Finish with the holy grail - Laura Mercier Transcluent Powder
- one of the few we've found that don't 'pill' which is a rarity.
Cheeks + Lips
We love what local brand Aleph
beauty are doing at the moment and currently can't go past their Lip and Cheek Tint
- a tiny pot with big colour payoff.
Find a colour that's like your lips, but better - currently we're loving Nude by Nature lipgloss in Dusk
- a natural product that is also very affordable, and available in most good pharmacies.
A stunningly bold blue eyeliner look, with Eye of Horus Mineral Mascara, wonderful for contact lens wearers.
For the Eyes
CC's current favourite is the Eye of Horus Mineral Mascara
creates beautiful volume - cruelty free with a nourishing formula, it is great for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers, too.
Our desert island must have
It has to be the Urban Decay
Naked Flushed Palette. a highlighter, bronzer and blush all in one, it is also super compact, making it perfect for away days.
On considering your makeup / jewellery combination
If a statement earring
is on the cards, keep to minimal makeup and bright, dewy skin, or for a bolder look, choose an eye or a lip - never both.
Nothing highlights a 'good skin day' more than a fresh face, a tinted lip and a banging pair of earrings
to frame the face.
