Bridget Hill, section manager for beauty at John Lewis Cheadle, shares her top beauty products for ease of use and a top finish...
IT’S always great to find beauty products that you know you can rely on to save time and make life that little bit easier.
Here are a few of my top beauty quick-fix items that won’t let
IF you’re always busy and find that washing your hair just takes up too much time, dry shampoo is a must.
Formulations have come on leaps and bounds in recent years.
Percy & Reed No Fuss Fabulousness Dry Shampoo is definitely one to try.
Perfect for oily or fine hair, it will soak up excess oil to give your hair an instant refresh.
Just give your locks a good brushing and spray near to the roots.
WHEN daily life is hectic, it can be challenging to look radiant and refreshed, so a complexion highlighter is the key.
Benefit’s High Beam has become a cult product for adding that ‘natural’ youthful glow, with its pearlised sheen that reflects light softly.
IF you just need a little pick-me up, perk up your colour with a fake tan.
Try James Read BB Gradual Face Tan to provide a very natural glow.
It’s boosted with anti-ageing red algae too.
HAVE you ever struggled to zip up your make-up bag or wondered why your handbag was so heavy?
If so, a multi-function product like the aptly named The Multiple by NARS comes up trumps.
Use it on your lips, cheeks, eyes and body.
The creamy versatile formula and sheer colour means it can be easily blended.
Japonesque’s Go Curl Eyelash Curler is a handy size to take on the go with you, or to slip into your travel bag.
IF fresh air or a sporty life is your kind of thing, then protecting your skin against the elements is important.
Bobbi Brown’s SPF 50 Protective Face Base is a moisturising lotion that comes packed with vitamin E, algae and chamomile to calm and soothe the skin.
The high factor SPF means you don’t have to worry about carrying a sun screen.
DO you want a moisturiser that also gives you colour as well as high SPF?
Kiehls BB Cream offers high SPF50, plus a hint of colour, and it evens out irregularities in skin tone.
ENVIRONMENTAL pollutants can be harsh on the skin, especially around the eyes.
Once you hit your thirties, it’s time to start investing in some eye cream to protect the skin and fight the fine lines.
A miracle worker is Philosophy’s Miracle Worker Anti-Ageing Retinoid Eye Repair.
This silky cream will help smooth your under-eye area and reduce dark circles.
