Chasing that glow? Then the latest Liquid Light shade from the MECCA MAX team is a must-try. As the name suggests, this silky liquid illuminator can be worn in a number of ways to achieve a high-wattage highlight or a subtle sheen. Mix it in with your everyday foundation for a luminous wash over the entire face or drip it straight onto the tops cheek bones for a ‘is my highlight blinding you?’ highlight. The rose quartz hue is super flattering on every skin tone and the tiny reflective particles throughout the formula make for some serious glow power. Our top tip with this one is to apply it using a stippling brush across your collarbones the next time you opt for an off the shoulder top. One ticket to the glow show, please!
Remember that time when you self-tanned your body but forgot your face? Yes—us too. So, our signature line brand Mecca Cosmetica has created these convenient tanning drops that are designed to be mixed in with your chosen moisturiser so your face doesn’t miss out on a wash of natural-looking bronze colour. The more drops you add the more colour you’ll see develop. Try it at night and wake up with a golden glow that’ll have everyone asking how your holiday was. And speaking of vacations, the compact packaging and easy-to-apply pipette make this the perfect travel companion if you’re after some no-fuss, makeup-free days while you’re lazing by the pool.
Face palettes are having a moment, and it’s easy to see why. They’re versatile, travel-friendly and combine everything you need for a look on the go. There’s excitement whenever NARS announces anything new, and this palette is worthy of it. A limited edition edit of matte and shimmer shades for eyes and cheeks, it’s designed to add instant radiance to where you need it most. Shades range from warmed up foil-finish shades and a soft matte neutral bronzer that’s made for sculpting cheekbones in the mix. This covetable compact from the artistry-led brand is definitely one to add to the collection.
The early 2000s glossy lip trend is back, so dust off your So Fresh Hits of 2001 and check out the latest lip launch from Hourglass. What sets this one apart from most is the innovative way it plumps up the lips while keeping them hydrated—Hourglass have created an innovative formula that’s infused with powerful active ingredients for instant hydration and long-lasting volume. Lips appear fuller without the sting in traditional lip plumpers. The collection is available in an impressive selection of colours and finishes, from reflective shimmers to bold lacquers—all infused with avocado oil and shea butter for added hydration.
The brand’s original Cellularose Brightening CC Serum has a loyal followin g for its skin-brightening properties and ability to camouflage imperfections, so it’s no wonder Terry de Gunzberg created a powder version. Available in four different shades, this compact powder contains Optical Glow technology that provides colour correction whilst blurring imperfections and smoothing any uneven texture. Apply a touch of it to the high points of the face for a subtle sheen or set your look for all over luminosity. It’s enriched with hydrating rose hip oil, too—so not only will your skin look soft, it’ll feel soft as well.
