Bobbi Brown x Jenny Packham’s mega wedding makeup, the secret to glowing skin and how to apply SPF – our Beauty Editor’s latest headlines

Sunshine, celebrations, a coronation… yes, summer’s coming and it’s bringing all the socialising and fun. What better time to treat someone you love* to one or all of the season’s best new beauty must-haves.

(*You. Always you.)

NEW! Bobbi Brown X Jenny Packham

Marrying two of the world’s leading brands for wedding fashion and beauty, April sees the (frankly genius) launch of the Bobbi Brown x Jenny Packham collection of makeup must-haves, packaged in Packham’s suitably stylish deco designs. 

Featuring a Blushed Nudes Eyeshadow Palette, Extra Lip Tint in Rare Pink, Highlighting Powder in Pink Glow, Crushed Lipcolour in Blondie Pink, Luxe Eyeshadow in Moonstone and a cosmetics bag, the range is undeniably chic – and the perfect gift for any budding brides, bridesmaids, guests or fans of a natural bridal beauty look, wedding or no wedding.

Me? I haven’t got the faintest whiff of a wedding to attend in 2023, but I will not let that come between me and the eyeshadow palette. It’s too good to miss.

SPF Hack

TikTok trending: SPF hack

Guilty of not reapplying sunscreen as often as you should? Same, and I write about the virtues of SPF for a living. A non-negotiable in your skincare routine, do wear sunscreen – applying a teaspoonful (or two finger lengths) of SPF on your face 30 minutes before sun exposure, topping up every two hours. 

Speaking of topping up… if sandy hands or carefully applied concealer is holding you back from reapplying yours, try TikTok’s hack – use a dry makeup sponge to press in SPF instead. Et voilà, SPF’d skin and mess-free makeup = the dream.
