With the price of make-up always rising, we’ve rounded up a list of essentials that every woman should own:
As a suits-all base, tinted moisturisers are pretty unbeatable. They’re light and sheer enough to be mistake-proof, filled with moisture, and easily applied with fingers.
We’ve all got something to hide! Pick a spreadable liquid with plenty of pigment, and it’ll work equally well under your eyes and for more heavy-duty jobs like covering pigmentation and thread veins.
A bright blush brings every face to life, and peachy-pink shades flatter pale and dark skin alike. Cream formulas are far more forgiving than powders.
A no-brainer. It opens and defines eyes, and makes everyone look prettier.
Fab brows frame the face. We prefer a multitasking product, like a brown liner with brush to fill and sweep into shape.
Find one that’s filled with soft nude shades, and you’ll use it every day. Creams will neutralise red or veined lids, while taupe and warmer bronze tones create depth.
Nothing new, just something useful. Fixes on make-up and mattes out shine where you need it – you don’t need it all over if you have dry skin. Apply a little often so your complexion looks ‘finished’, not caked.
