Etro spring/ summer 2020
A virtual boardroom meeting calls for a power red lip, but for everything else, go for a tinted lip balm such as Clé de Peau Beauté’s Lip Glorifier in 01 Pink ($62), which keeps your pout hydrated and helps you look fresh-faced.
For something that’s as good at blurring imperfections as beauty filters, there’s the Poudre De Beauté Mat Naturel – Beauty Powder from Gucci Beauty ($95). It glides on effortlessly, has a feather-light texture, and can be used on its own for natural-looking coverage or over foundation to help it stay in place.
Spritz on a facial mist for an instant dose of moisture or when you hit that midday slump. One to try is the Hyaluronic Energizing Mist from Tom Ford Beauty ($106). It has a blend of hyaluronic acid, caffeine and vitamin E to boost hydration, leaving skin soft and supple while refreshing makeup.
PERFECT THAT COMPLEXION
The best foundation is one you apply and then forget it was ever there, like the long-wearing Chanel Ultra Le Teint Fluide ($88). Heat-, sweat- and humidity-proof, it keeps shine under control for up to 24 hours.
PLAY UP THOSE EYES
Heavy eyeliner may be a tad excessive when working from home, so reach for a mascara instead to accent your peepers. As its name promises, the Full Frontal Volume, Lift & Curl Mascara from Fenty Beauty ($39) helps even the wimpiest lashes appear full and fluttery.
PREP FOR PRIME-TIME ACTION
Minimise the look of pores and help your foundation go on more smoothly with Shiseido’s Synchro Skin Tone Up Primer Compact ($68). Wear this under makeup to prolong its wear or over makeup to impart a subtle glow.
For the finishing touch to envy-inducing radiant skin, look to Dior’s Diorskin Mineral Nude Glow Color Games in 001 Pink Flame ($84). With pearl-infused minerals, the highlighting powder imparts a shimmery glow to skin. The darker hue can do double duty as a blusher, bringing subtle colour to the cheeks for a healthy-looking flush.
