MAKE-UP

Lisa Eldridge The Foundation, £44

Available in 40 shades, Lisa Eldridge’s latest launch is an intelligently formulated, skin-friendly foundation with a customisable medium coverage that can be dialled up or down. Self setting, it creates a soft-focus effect, thanks to a formula containing a natural mesh-like ingredient that completely fuses with skin once blended. The final finish is neither dewy or flat matte, but something skin-like and in between.

Byredo’s Kajal Pencil defines eyes with intense pigmentation and a creamy, easy gliding application.

August & Piers’s latest scent is Darling, a mix of rose, violet and cedarwood. Featuring hand-poured wax which blends soy, bee and rapeseed (which are 100% natural and paraffin free), Darling comes in a striking ceramic vessel that would look good on any coffee table. All the brand’s wicks are made from cotton and the candle will burn for 60 hours if looked after properly.

Nomad Noé Wild In Hollywood Candle, £50

Nomad Noé’s candle range offers a clean-cut design (the ceramic vessels glow when the candle is lit) and a compelling collection of scents. Each of the Manhattan-based brand’s new candles is an ode to specific memories, moments and people – we love Wild In Hollywood, which has wintery notes of whisky, tobacco and oud. Even better, the brand is plant-based and 100% cruelty free.

Ouai Melrose Place Candle, £32

Ouai has transformed its popular Melrose Place fragrance into a candle. Inspired by founder Jen Atkin’s home, the candle is presented in a concrete vessel and filled with a natural coconut and soy-blend wax that’s finished with notes of pink peppercorn, peony, rose, amber and sandalwood.
