Five Favorite Beauty Buys: November 2020

November 25

Bronzer: Guerlain Terracotta matte sculpting powder
The first bronzer I ever fell in love with was Guerlain. I started using it again after a year and I remembered why I love their bronzers. Firstly, I love the packaging, I love how they smell like summer but I specifically love wearing it during the day to give the most natural summer glow. I love both the nude glow powder, and the sculpting powder.

Mask: Summer fridays R+R mask
One of the beauty brands I was most excited about it launching in the region was Summer Friday’s. I never really use masks, but I love the whole brand and this felt more like a treat on the skin.
Available at Sephora and Apotheca Beauty

Lips: Fenty Slip
I’ve stopped with dark colors on my lips. I prefer either wearing a tint, a lipliner across my lips or something hydrating and buttery. This one comes in different shades and is infused with pomegranate butter, which feels so lovely on the skin.
Available at Sephora

Eyes: Make up for Ever Aqua Resist color pencil
I don’t wear much eye make up, so when I do wear eye pencil, I do like it to look like the Middle Eastern Kohl I used to buy from Satwa growing up. I love this from Make up For Ever’s new range, Aqua Resist. Waterproof, full impact and glides on so easily.

Skincare: Barbara Sturm clarifying spot treatment
I love Barbara Sturm products, and one thing I always have in my dresser is a spot treatment cream, alongside the spot stickers for when comes up. This is so handy when a spot is red and inflamed, it has ingredients like tea tree oil, and Zinc Oxide to help get rid of impurities, and Vitamin B3 to help the healing of the skin.
