MiNDFOOD beauty editor, Nicole Saunders, rounds up the best beauty to try now.
As much as I love a thorough skincare routine, I’ve never been a big toner user and failed to get aboard the essence bandwagon of more recent years. That was until I came across Dior‘s latest addition to the Capture Youth family, New Skin Effect Enzyme Solution. Powered with exfoliating papaya enzymes, the resurfacing water gently clarifies and hydrates skin. Rumour has it that it’s also a favourite for celebrity make-up artist Daniel Martin â€“ the man behind Megan Markle’s wedding-day beauty.
When it comes to nature, beauty can be found anywhere which Jo Malone London reminds us this season. The quintessentially British fragrance house has turned to the often overlooked flora of the English countryside as the inspiration of its latest limited-edition collection, Wild Flowers & Weeds. Intoxicating Cade & Cedarwood Cologne is just one of the scents from the collection and the slightly smokey fragrance is just perfect for cooler winter days.
The iconic YSL Touche Ă‰clat family gets a new member this month. New Touche Ă‰clat High Cover features the same illuminating powers of Touche Ă‰clat Radiant Touch but with the addition of natural-looking extra coverage. It’s the perfect beauty essential to pop in your handbag for on-the-go touch-ups.
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum â€“ pronounced boom boom â€“ Cream (from Mecca Cosmetica and Maxima) has garnered a cult following for good reason. Not only does in smell sensational, the but the all-over body cream is also formulated with guarana extract, acai oil and coconut oil and helps skin appear firmer. With its delightful scent that will quickly transport you somewhere tropical, it really is the perfect antidote to those impending winter blues.
Vitamin C should be included in any serious skincare routine and Drunk Elephant C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream (from MECCA Cosmetica) is the perfect pick-me-up for the delicate eye area. Five different types of Vitamin C and a nourishing blend of peptides work to restore radiance, hydration and youthfulness to the eye area.
Sometimes all you need to achieve the barely there beauty look complete is one multi-tasking make-up star. There’s not a lot Shiseido Aura Dew can’t do â€“ use it as a highlighter to give skin a hint of radiance, illuminate your eyelids with it, or mix it with your favourite lip gloss to create a lustrous finish.
Dior has done it again as in-house make-up maestro Peter Phillips has combined the best of both worlds to create new Dior Addict Stellar Shine. The balm-like formulation glides on to provide a serious colour payoff that nourishes and hydrates lips right around the clock making it just perfect for winter which tends to dry out lips.
