The Investment Buy

Ambient™ Lighting Edit Blush & Glow Volume II, £90 | Hourglass

Hailey Bieber, Matilda Djerf, several members of the SL team – and plenty of top make-up artists – are obsessed with this palette for a reason. Yes, it’s expensive at £90, but the mix of tones and the formula of the powders are hard to beat. Plus, a little goes a long way – so investing in one of these means it’ll last a decent amount of time. Equipped with six shades, you can use each blusher, bronzer and highlighter all over your face – or on your lids. The huge mirror and cool packaging are a bonus.

Simply swirl your brush through all the shades for all over radiance, or use them individually to build a bronzy, smokey eye for a holiday night out.

The Art Of Sculpting & Defining Volume III, £62.40 | Kevyn Aucoin

If you want your make-up to work a little harder – and especially contour and chisel – few palettes will serve you better than this one from Kevin Aucoin. Full of its bestselling contour shades, use the various tones to hollow out your cheeks, elongate your nose and define your lids. Then, dip into the ombre-style blusher and subtle highlighters for a flushed, subtle glow.
