Feminine, floral and vaguely frivolous; if you’re looking for a few new beauty treats to add to your makeup bag or bathroom shelves, we have some (not particularly serious) advice for you. Think pink. From fragrant bodycare goodies to the perfect colours to perk up your complexion, it’s all about pink. Politically correct, no. Fun? Absolutely!
Kevyn Aucoin The Creamy Glow – Highly-pigmented and beautifully blendable, Kevyn Aucoin’s Liquifuschia blush looks amazing with a summer glow.
Dr Hauschka Rose Nurturing Body Wash – One of my shower favourites. On the functional side of things, it’s super moisturising for skin, but thanks to the rich rose scent, it also feels truly luxurious. A ‘special occasion’ shower gel.
Wild About Beauty Ultra Dewy Crème Blush – A natural, fresh-faced flush? Look no further than this light blusher stick. You can easily build up colour to suit your skintone, which is great if you’re English Rose one moment and Brazilian-tanned the next.
Face Stockholm Nail Polish #56 – This Barbie pink is one of my staple colours – it’s pretty and a just a little edgy all at once. Wear with as much bright, bold jewellery as you like.
EOS Shave Cream – The less time you can spend in the bathroom with lotions and potions, the better. Right? Scented with pomegranate and raspberry, this shaving cream hydrates and ensures a super smooth shave every time – wet or dry.
Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer – Rimmel’s super shiny gloss brightens up the complexion and really lasts well, plus the non-sticky finish means you won’t end up with the dreaded hair-attached-to-your-face look. And if it’s good enough for Kate…
Essie Nails Raspberry – A variation on traditional postbox red, this is a deep, rich crushed raspberry shade. Highly recommended for toes too.
Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Sheer Candy Lipstick – Sheer, ultra-moisturising colour with a glossy finish. It’s like lip balm but a lot better – and with YSL’s typically luxe packaging.
Ole Henriksen African Red Tea Face Mist – A quick spritz on the go, and skin is refreshed and revitalised pronto. If you only own one facial mist, make it this one as it’s packed with antioxidants.
