Flaw­less in A FLASH

In­tro­duc­ing the two-minute cover-up

Irish Daily Mail - YOU - - BEAUTY BUZZ - By Bella Blis­sett

With so many new bot­tles, tubes and pow­ders, it’s nat­u­ral to feel weary at the thought of your morn­ing beauty rou­tine. This is why the two-step method from make-up artist Wendy Rowe at the re­cent Burberry show (right) was rather ge­nius. Hav­ing al­ready prepped skin, she sim­ply ap­plied Burberry Cash­mere Con­cealer (€28) where needed on dark patches, shad­ows and blem­ishes. Then she used a big fluffy brush to ‘dif­fuse’ the pow­der from Burberry Cash­mere Com­pact (€45) over the en­tire face. The re­sult was flaw­less, yet seem­ingly make-up free. Glow­ing, but not shiny – and it took all of two min­utes. Both avail­able from burberry.com. It will not have es­caped your no­tice that lux­ury scented can­dles are eye-wa­ter­ingly ex­pen­sive, but I am yet to meet a woman who doesn’t adore them. In their early days, Cire Trudon’s beau­ti­ful creations were a favourite of French king Louis XIV. Then, as now, its can­dles such as patchouli and am­ber-scented Lu­mière (€87.75, sel­f­ridges.com) sent a mes­sage of qual­ity, taste and abun­dance when burn­ing brightly in your home. Talk­ing of sta­tus scents, Dip­tyque has part­nered with French artist Philippe Baude­locque to cre­ate a dragon-em­bossed Fiery Or­ange Can­dle (from €31.50, dip­tyqueparis. com) with a rich woody scent. New from achingly cool Bella Freud (fash­ion de­signer, art di­rec­tor, writer) is her Starry Starry Nights Can­dle (€54.75, bel­lafreud.com) – a win­tery whirl of frank­in­cense, gin­ger musk and nut­meg. Fi­nally, clas­si­cists will love the aroma of pine nee­dles and cher­ry­wood from the Ac­qua di Parma Sil­ver Gems Can­dle (€110, ac­quadi­parma.com).
