Diorshow Pump ‘N’ Volume Mascara, £25.50 | Dior

Oclipse Smart Tone Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen SPF50  | ZO Skin Health

Cherish Skin Repair Serum, £58 | Therapie

Eyelash Curlers, £18 | Blink Brow Bar

Hydrating And Plumping Serum No 1, £150 | Dr Nigma Talib

Original Nipple Balm For Lips, £12 | Dr. Lipp

“This cult multi-purpose balm was originally designed for breastfeeding mums but is now a mainstay in many make-up artists’ kits. Made from pure lanolin, it’s super-moisturising and soothes everything from lips to cuticles.” – Nicola Haste Chapman, Co-Founder of Pixiwoo

Chocolate Soleil Bronzer, £25 | Too Faced
