Your New Skin Regime
If you’re looking for a quick-fix way to nail Blake Lively’s glistening post-pregnancy glow, the new Step 1 Skin Equalizers from Make Up For Ever are exactly what you need. Light enough to be practically invisible yet strong enough to keep your foundation in place all day, the new collection comprises four new Skin Preparators that battle everything from large pores and dehydration as well as six Color Correctors to work on redness and dullness. Try mixing and matching for a bespoke skin finish.

Can’t Live Without!
“... the new Clarisonic Aria limited edition cleansing kit-- a game changer. Not only is it beautifully designed to celebrate the Chinese Year of the Goat, it offers the deepest cleansing action on the market and can totally transform your skin.” Naomi Chadderton, Fashion & Beauty Editor


Pearls Are A Girls’ Best Friend

Translucent skin is one of the biggest beauty trends of S/S ’15 so Guerlain’s latest Blanc De Perle range couldn’t have launched at a better time. While the skincare line is perfect for whitening, we’re loving the stunning make-up collection comprising highlighters, polishes, lipsticks and more – it’s oh so pretty!

Evan Rachel Wood for Gucci
She’s back! The American Actress and model is once again fronting the new campaign for Gucci Guilty, pairing up with Chris Evans for the latest campaign.

Set to be the hottest scent of the season, Gucci Guilty Diamond Pour Femme conjures up the heady and seductive scents of past fragrances with oriental notes at the heart combined with pink pepper, lilac and cardamom. The bottle is super luxe too, crafted from gold hued metal and emblazoned with the signature G design. A winner all round, we say!

Urban Decay’s Spring Look
If you’re looking to give your make-up a bag a spring update, Urban Decay’s latest collection is just what you need in your life. From the creamy Sheer Revolution lipsticks that come in an array of shades – we highly recommend the Anarchy shade for a pop of colour – to weightless concealers, foundations and eye shadows, it’s all you need for that cosmetics’ spring clean.

Your Under-eye Saviour
Fed up of puffy under-eye circles? Luckily this fab new launch from Benefit is just what you need to fake that eight-hours sleep look. Designed to de-puff while smoothing out wrinkles – the applicator even comes in a kitsch iron shape – it gives a satisfying cooling effect that will brighten your eyes all day long. It’s just what we’ve been waiting for!
