It’s always great to find desert-island beauty products that you know you can rely on to make life that little bit easier. Here are a few of my top beauty quick-fix items that won’t let you down:
If you’re always busy and find that washing your hair just takes up too much time, dry shampoo is a must – and formulations have come on leaps and bounds in recent years. Percy & Reed No Fuss Fabulousness Dry Shampoo is definitely one to try - perfect for oily or fine hair, it will soak up excess oil to give your hair an instant refresh. Just give your locks a good brushing and spray near to the roots.
When daily life is hectic, it can be challenging to look radiant and refreshed. A complexion highlighter is the key. Benefit’s High Beam has become a cult product for adding that ‘natural’ youthful glow, with its pearlised sheen that reflects light softly.
Or if you just need a little pick-me up, perk up your colour with a golden fake tan. Try James Read BB Gradual Face Tan to provide a very natural glow; it’s boosted with anti-ageing red algae too.
If you’ve ever struggled to zip up your make-up bag or wondered why your handbag was so heavy, a multi-function product like the aptly named The Multiple by NARS comes up trumps. Use it on your lips, cheeks, eyes and body. The creamy versatile formula and sheer colour means it can be easily blended for a natural finish. Japonesque’s Go Curl Eyelash Curler is a handy size to take on the go with you, or to slip into your travel bag.
