Fake Bake ‘Shine On’ Palette 

This glorious palette for eyes, cheeks and lips has been designed to enhance summer skin –  I have found it and fallen for it in January! It contains 4 cream eyeshadows, 2 lip stains that can also be used on the cheeks, and a lip balm that can double up as a glisten on the cheekbones.

Chanel Multi-Use Illuminating Base

I use this sheer illuminating base across my cheekbones, the top of my forehead and down the centre strip of my nose before applying foundation. Occasionally to change the finish of a foundation I will mix a few drops of this in. It evens out skin texture and gives an illuminating light to the skin.

ARK Skincare Reverse Gravity Eye Cream

A real hero product for the delicate under eye area. It contains an active ingredient from the Persian Silk Tree that instantly tightens and lifts. It also cushions the skin to disguise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. And the massage ball at the tip of the product gently pushes the product into the skin whilst helping with the circulation and reducing dark circles and puffiness.

It is a classic fragrance that comes with the option of 100ml or 200ml.

REN Satin Perfection BB Cream SPF15

I would suggest that this silicone free BB cream is most suitable for light to medium skin tones. It makes the skin look even and radiant without providing too much coverage – I apply this over a moisturiser in the mornings. It provides SPF15 and anti-oxidant protection. It’s not oily.

REN Satin Perfection Cream BB Cream


Rapid Brow

Continued use of this product is designed to encourage the growth of thicker and stronger eyebrows. When I first started using this I had a small gap in my eyebrows that is now back to being fully grown. I use this daily as an eyebrow groomer – it’s brush is like a mascara wand. I brush upwards at the centre and outwards at the edges. It makes eyebrows look really healthy.

ARK Skincare Radiance Serum

For dewy skin use this serum under a moisturiser in the mornings. Although it makes the skin look bright and fresh it brightens and evens skin tone with the inclusion of Amino Acids. Red Algae works against pigmentation and sun spots and Velvet Flower Seeds help the skin’s cells to regenerate. If there is low stock of this, the product is being repackaged, so check again later because it’s worth it!

Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer ‘SX07’

I discovered this while shopping in Knightsbridge one day. I looked exhausted and had a few minutes to kill before I met a friend. I went into Space NK, and dotted a little of this underneath my eyes, bottom of my nose and across my cheekbones. WOW. Seriously concentrated – the small pot that looks like it will last a month lasts forever because you need to use so little of the product. I blend this with Dr Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips if I want a sheerer coverage under the eye. They are the perfect combo.

Price – £36.50
