This Month’s Favourites: February Edition

By  | 

‘This month’s favourite’ is a monthly series of articles that highlight the best products our writers have been using and boasting about. Check out contributor Daniela Velkova’s winter faves.

A primer is essential for an even and flawless skin. Some people think it’s useless and overrated but treating yourself to it changes your life!

To start with the perfect base a primer like Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer (£26.00) will do that job. The ‘miracle-in-a-tube’ smooths out fine lines and hydrates while making pores instantly disappear.

Alternatively, the Photo Finish Foundation Primer (£26.00), is also a winner! It’s Smashbox’s number one selling item. The transparent primer gel helps smooth the skin and blurs any flaws.

Foundation is one of the hardest products to buy. Matching your own skin tone to the perfect foundation is a challenging task; shades and undertones vary greatly so it’s better to play safe!

ESTÉE LAUDER’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place (£42.00) is a great treat for any make-up addict who wants a lightweight base. It’s comfortable and lasts through heat, humidity and non-stop activity. Don’t forget to try it on YOUR NECK (never your hand) and you’ve hit the jackpot for make-up items.

Benefit Cosmetics’ Get the Pretty Started is the perfect combination of bronze, blush and highlight.  This product is very practical, you kill two birds with one stone! On the limited edition palette, you even get the famous Hoola bronze, which took the beauty community by storm. Guaranteed-glamour shimmer to your life!
