It’s the dead of winter and we’re freezing our buns off! But even with minimal sun, I still want to keep my Caribbean-kissed, bright complexion. So, I’ve been relying on these products to help me get glowing fast!
Nothing says drab, dreary and tired like dark under eye circles. I’ve had dark under eyes since I was a teen. I’ve tried all sorts of concealers, but they never seemed to work for me. Then I discovered the brightening effects of colour correctors. Instead of trying to cover up my dark under eye circles, I essentially brighten them. I use M.A.C Studio Conceal and Correct Palette in Medium Deep (the shade rich yellow). It makes my eyes look more awake and wider. It’s my first step in getting that glowy, bright look!
I’m obsessed with bronzers and highlighters. Especially in the winter months when I have to fake it. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Rose Gold gives me that perfect touch of shimmery, bronzy tint without being too deep or too rouge. I use with a M.A.C Powder/Blush Brush 129. It’s a game changer. It makes my whole face come alive. It’s great for an every day make-up look. Use it by itself or alongside your favourite blush.
Now we get to the good stuff! If you need to grab one thing in those dark, morning hours, it needs to be a go-to bright lippy. Even with no bronzer, concealer or colour corrector, nothing will brighten up your complexion better than a perfect shade of red. These days I’m turning to Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Countess. I guarantee, no matter your skin complexion or hair colour, this lipstick will look absolutely stunning on you.
