Makeup Bag Refresh
The dawn of the new season is the ideal time to freshen up your make-up bag and switch out anything that isn’t working for you anymore. To help, Laura and Petro have tested out an array of lip, brow, eye and skin products to find four that really deliver.
KUSH FIBER BROW GEL
If, like me, you prefer a more natural eyebrow look, this is the brow product for you. It offers a subtle, feathery fullness that doesn’t look too ‘done’. The brush makes it easy to mimic hair-like strokes and it’s perfectly buildable, meaning you can up the ante for a bolder evening look if you want.
VICTORIA BECKHAM LIP DEFINER
I’m a lip pencil convert thanks to this product, which glides on and adds subtle definition that lasts all day. It can be used to simply line your lips or fill them and makes for a muted but impactful look.
THE PERFECTING COMPLEXION STICK
Everyone is talking about clean-beauty brand Merit at the moment, which has just launched in the UK, and since testing The Minimalist perfecting complexion stick, I can understand why. It’s not a foundation nor a concealer, but it has replaced both in my make-up bag. It blends seamlessly into the skin to create unnoticeable coverage.
SALUTE TO THE SUN MASCARA
I love it when a make-up product has added benefits. As well as being rich in pigment with an hourglass wand that catches every last lash, this mascara is infused with synthetic beeswax, castor, avocado and golden jojoba oils to help promote lash growth.
