Flawless Faces: 4 Must-Try Fusion Foundations

With all the formulations, finishes and colour options out there, foundation is one of the hardest products to get right. It forms the basis of any makeup look and it’s pretty much unavoidable- so when you get it wrong, it literally ruins everything. A staggering 58% of women test foundation on the back of their hand, where the skin is a completely different colour to the face. Add to that the hideous neon lighting in most department stores and you get a recipe for a makeup matching disaster.

Berry Kisses: The Secret to Wearing Super Dark Lipstick

I’m not exaggerating when I say that lipstick is the single makeup item that brings the most joy to my life. It has magical, instant makeover powers that work for everyone. A slick of colour will instantly perk up your complexion and make you feel more polished and put together. Diving in to deeper shades of lipstick is one of my most favourite things about the cooler months, though admittedly I’ll happily sport a burgundy lip in the height of summer too.

The Fab Five: Velvet Matte Lipsticks

Matte lipstick has never been an easy choice for me. The chalky textures and the quick drying, pasty formulas have me reaching for a cleansing wipe quicker than you can say, “pass the lip balm.” There’s always that fear that a lack of sheen will highlight every fault and unsightly line around the mouth. But I love bold, high-impact lip colours and to be honest these just pack more of a punch in matte formulas.
