From a self-refreshing foundation from Shiseido to luxurious lipsticks from Gucci, this is the best new make-up to buy this month.
If you’re looking for some spring beauty inspiration, you’re in luck: plenty of easy-to-achieve beauty looks were paraded down the runways at London, New York, Milan and Paris fashion weeks. With a focus on dewy, luminous skin; subtly defined features â€“ think strong cheekbones and brows â€“ and soft pinks and neutral shades, it’s easy to recreate the fresh-faced beauty looks of the fashion world. To get the job done, we’ve rounded up the best new make-up to buy this month.
If you’re tired of feeling like your regular foundation is weighing your skin down, Shiseido Skin Self-Refreshing Foundation ($69) does what other formulations don’t: it provides serious long-wearing coverage that feels more like a second skin. Not only is it breathable and weightless, but it’s also smudge-proof and humidity and sweat resistant making it the perfect foundation for summer. It’s packed with SPF30 to fend off those harmful ways and also creates a protective veil that safeguards skin from pollution.
It is the season to get golden and luminous skin and new RMS Beauty Sensual Skin Trio ($55 from Mecca) is the perfect all-in-one complexion palette to get your skin glowing in time. It features Madeira Bronzer Luminising Powder, Grande Dame Luminising Powder and Demure Blush â€“ an exclusive pressed-powder version to RMS’ best-selling Lip2Cheek formula. Wear them alone or together to create the radiant skin of your dreams.
If you’re hunting for a palette that has it all look no further than Too Faced Watermelon Face + Eyeshadow Breakaway Palette ($72 from Mecca). One side of the cute palettes is fulled with eight high-pigment shadows in a variety of sparkling shades, while the opposite side features a soft pink highlighter, matte candy watermelon blush and a caramelised bronzer.
Gucci Makeup is finally touching down in New Zealand when David Jones Newmarket opens in the next few weeks â€“ find out more it here. We’re currently coveting the sheer Rouge Ã LÃ¨vres Voile formulation and Millicent Rose â€“ a soft rose-inspired shade of pink â€“ is the colour we will be wearing this spring.
If you’re after a lip colour that’s a bit bolder, Revlon‘s new Ultra HD Vinyl Lip Polish ($27) arrives just in time to brighten things up for the coming season. The high-shine formula provides serious colour payoff while leaving lips smooth and soft.
Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Brow Perfector ($63) is all you need for seriously defined brows. The clever 3-in-one formula is an eyebrow pencil meets powder meets brush. In three easy steps you’ll have the brows of your dream. Start by filing in your brows with hair-like strokes using the ultra-fine pencil; fill in any sparse areas with the cushion applicator, and finally use the brush to blend, shape and groom.
Dr. Hauschka Natural Spirit Limited Edition Blush Duo 04 ($66) is all you need for a beautiful complexion this season. The two easy-to-wear duo features and apricot and rose shade, is 100 per cent natural and is not tested on animals.
