Five Favorite Beauty Buys: June 2017

July 7

Face wipes: Sephora charcoal exfoliating wipes

I would have never thought I would say this – but I’m in love with Sephora’s face wipes – they have lovely pomegranate and coconut ones – but I’m also really loving the charcoal exfoliating ones. The dual wipes mean that one side is made to clean and remove any dirt and make up – whilst the other is there to exfoliate (with the integrated micro-beads).

Illuminator: Cover FX Custom Enhancer drops in Sunlight

I’m a little over the moon that Cover FX is now available in Dubai! (Sephora to be exact). As a lover of illuminators, I couldn’t wait to try this from Cover FX. They’re super concentrated, so they really give a strong finish – You can either mix it up with a moisturizer or foundation. Personally, I like using it as my base illuminator (I literally use 1-2 drops at most though)

Moisturizer: Dior Hydra life deep hydration – sorbet water essence

As I have combination to oily skin, when I do hydrate my skin – I like something incredibly light. Concentrated in Mallow & Haberlea leaf, the skin literally drinks up all the moisturizer and creates this fresh and radiant finish.

Setting Spray: Tarte Ready Set Radiant Skin mist

I’m not big on primers, but I have to use a setting spray when I finish applying make up. Not only do I feel a lot more refreshed, it creates this dewy blended finish so it doesn’t look cakey – and lastly I feel like it holds the make up a lot more. Tarte, a natural beauty brand always use the loveliest incredients – this one has cucumber extract (to soothe), apple extract (for vitamins), tea seed oil (for antioxidants), and Eucalyptus leaf oil (to hydrate and give a cooling effect).

Foundation: Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-place make up

When it comes to foundations – I have 3 different categories. 1) A great tinted moisturizer or bb cream 2) a day time/lighter foundation with a dewy effect 3) Great coverage and one that lasts all night. Estee Lauder always make some of my favorites for a day to day and lighter one. Currently using this one – but because of the glass bottle, haven’t been taking it on travels. Oil-free, lightweight and quite buildable – I also love that it has a bit of SPF and holds well. I use the 2C3 Fresco shade.
