MAKE-UP & SKIN
THE UPDATES YOU NEED ON YOUR BEAUTY RADAR THIS MONTH
BY SOPHIE BERESINER
I once wrote a whole column about how much I hate lip gloss.
I appreciate its aesthetic, but I don’t like it on me. It makes me feel old. I’m a matte lover, but, much like sushi (hate the stuff), I keep trying it, just in case. So when Peter Phillips, creative and
image director of Dior Make-Up, tells me I must try Dior Addict Lacquer Plump (£28.5O, right), I had to. Turns out it’s my sushi success story. It doesn’t feel like gloss; it’s long-lasting, pigmented and youthful without being young. Sold. Try priming
lips first with Dior Addict Lip Maximizer, £23.4O (below, in Pool Blue), for a plumper pout.
THE BIG SHOT HANDBAG
Chantecaille’s Luminescent Eye Shade in Mare, £42 (above), has a sheer, glittering pigment – perfect to wash over the lids for an instant cool-girl eye. And once it’s used up, we’ll be using
the chic compact as a mirror.
“WEAR COLOUR LIKE IT’S STUCK ON YOUR SKIN. THINK OF WHAT DOESN’T COME OUT IN THE WASH: GRASS, WINE… GROSS IN REALITY, GREAT FOR BEAUTY” MAC DIRECTOR OF MAKE-UP
ARTISTRY TERRY BARBER @TERRYBARBERONBEAUTY
THE VIP ON-THE-GO
L’Eau Tan, £48 (right), is the first Chanel tanning mist, and it’s everything you’d expect. The chic bottle delivers a sunkissed colour while smelling fabulous, too.
THE LOOK YOUR NEW FAVOURITES
Cleverly formulated to turn a shade of pink that matches the wearer’s skin tone upon application, Paul & Joe’s Lip Collection, £18, a lip gloss and treatment balm (above) duo, is properly bespoke. We love.
Benefit’s Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation, £25.5O (right), has optical blurring spheres,
so skin looks like skin, only even-toned and poreless. It’s the
perfect light-coverage base.
