Brow Cheat, £22
Best For: Filling In Sparseness
Why We Love It: This caters to everyone – even those with thin, sparse brows. It comes with a superfine nib that allows you to create defined, natural-looking strokes – just be sure you apply it lightly and focus on the sparsest areas first to prevent your brows from looking overdrawn. Use feather-like strokes in the direction of your hair growth, towards the tail of your brows. Smudge-proof, waterproof and sweat resistant, it sets fast, but emollients like carnauba wax keep it creamy, so you have time to play and get the results you’re after. Extra bonus points go to the added vitamin E, which works to nourish wayward hairs.
Mini Hollywood Flawless Filter, £13
Best For: Dewy, Luminous Skin
Why We Love It: Promising ‘celebrity skin filter in a bottle’, this award-winning formula isn’t a foundation or coverage product. Think of it as a unique primer and highlighter hybrid with a silky dry down. Porcelain flower extract (which is rich in antioxidants) works to brighten skin, while the mega-watt glow smooths pores and catches the light beautifully. Use it as you would a primer, a base or a highlighter, or mix it with your foundation for an intense hit of radiance. Now available in new, updated shades.
Eyes To Mesmerise, £22
Best For: Soft Shimmer
Why We Love Them: A fool-proof way to up the ante on your make-up look, these creamy eyeshadows glide on with ease – even in the back of a taxi. Windscreen-wipe over your lids with your finger to create a subtle and very flattering finish. The numerous shades available means there’s something for everyone to benefit from.
Cheek To Chic Blush, £30
Best For: Youthful Colour
Why We Love It: With nine colour combinations, this universally flattering blush will help enhance your bone structure, as well as giving skin a healthy flush of luminosity. It’s rich in pigment, with colours that are believable and natural – never too theatrical. Swirl all the colours together, tap off any excess, then apply the formula directly onto the centre of your cheeks.
Beauty Light Wand, £29
Best For: Luminous, Radiant Skin
Why We Love It: Formulated to sculpt skin and give good glow, this highlighter suits all skin tones and offers a luminous, dewy finish — no wonder eight are sold every minute worldwide. There’s zero shimmer or glitter, so it’s ideal for anyone that prefers low-key luminosity. You can use it all over, too – on the body, face and around your eyes. With a sponge top applicator that’s akin to concealer, it’s easy to use – dot it along your cheekbones, then use your fingers to press it into the skin. The sheer, liquid-y texture is easy to massage in. Put a little bit above the arch of your brow bone to help catch the light. Keep an eye out for the beloved 'Pinkgasm' shade which has been relaunched after a 50K+ global waiting list.
Lip Cheat Liners, £17
Best For: Soft Sculpting
Why We Love Them: Lip liners have often earned themselves a bad rep, but newer formulations mean they are easier to work with than ever before. Cue Charlotte Tilbury’s Lip Cheat Liners, which are known for their creamy, malleable textures. Use them along the lip line, or scribble them onto lips for all-over colour. Whichever you choose, you’ll love the velvety finish they lend lips – not mention the fact they don’t feather or flake come 4pm.
Push Up Lashes Mascara, £23
Best For: Volume & Definition
Why We Love It: Not for the fainthearted, this jet-black mascara delivers instant volume with just one swipe. The formula stays wet for a while, so it’s easy to layer up and build upon for volume and definition. Extra points for the thin bristles attached to the wand which coat all those tiny, hard-to-reach hairs, but also separate each lash for better length. Even those with sparse, flat lashes will reap the benefits and see an impressive difference immediately.
Hyaluronic Happikiss, £25
Best For: Glossy, Hydrating Colour
Why We Love Them: We’re all after a low-maintenance alternative to lipstick these days. Cue Charlotte Tilbury’s new balms, which are full of moisture, with a glossy – not sticky – dry down that really goes the distance. Offering the same pigment as a lipstick, but without the drying effect, the colour payoff is impressive, as is the flattering shade range. Apply directly to the lips for a sheer wash of colour, or layer them on top of your existing favourites for a more intense finish. You’ll want every colour.
Rock ’n’ Kohl Liners, £19
Best For: A Grungy, Smokey Eye
Why We Love Them: These are some of the best-selling eyeliners on the market. They have an inky kohl which lasts for hours, but is still creamy enough to let you smudge it and play around with different looks. It’s available in several different tones now if you want to experiment with something other than black – though Rock ’n’ Kohl remains our favourite sooty shade. To get more from them, use a brush on the tip of the liner, then take that brush and flick the colour out from the outer corners of your eyes, up to where your brow ends.
Lip & Cheek Glow, £30
Best For: Those On-The-Go
Why We Love It: We love this lip-and-cheek-tint that has a buttery formula and impressive colour payoff. Vitamin E and beeswax combine for a texture that’s easy to work with and build upon for better intensity – you can also sheer it out if you want more of a glossy, lustrous finish. The best bit? It’s great on the go. You don’t need a special set of tools, just use your finger to dab this into lips and cheeks for a soft, flushed effect that takes seconds to create.
The Retoucher, £25
Best For: Concealing Uneven Tone
Why We Love It: Designed to brighten and conceal, this silky retoucher was formulated with longevity in mind. It hydrates with vitamins, while in-built pearls counteract redness and enhance luminosity. You only need a tiny amount to cover all imperfections seamlessly – whether it’s redness or darkness, breakouts or fine lines. The sponge tip allows you to get right into every little area for an even, smooth blend. Try a little on the eyelids too – it acts as a great base for eyeshadows applied on top.
Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray, £15
Best For: Multipurpose Benefits
Why We Love It: A primer and finishing mist in one, this clever setting spray comes with a multitude of benefits. It uses ‘film formers’ to lock make-up firmly in place, while leaving behind an invisible shield of protection that keeps things like pollution at bay. There is also aloe vera and Japanese green tea inside, working in tandem to soften skin, alleviate redness and smooth pores for a smoother-looking appearance. One of the best setting sprays we’ve tried, it never feels sticky or occlusive – just lightweight and refreshing with a subtle, floral fragrance.
