Boldly Bare

Who says you have to go all out to be knockout? From sheer foundations to beautifully enhanced brows and soft balmy lips, take your makeup bare to feel bold this summer.

The standout trend from S/S18 was to bare it all and I am so here for it! From flawless filtered Charlotte Tilbury skin to Glossier ‘I just woke up like this‘ vibes, I am ready to go sheer and glossy in the hopes that I too, will look somewhat like Gigi Hadid.

Boy Brow

recently changed my life, framed my face and ensured I would receive kudos from commuters. Stroked upwards, my brows appear bushy and ready for anything – What more do I need? Thanks Glossier.

Dior Lip Glow

has been rolling around in the bottom of my handbag for years but now my cult favourite is available in 9 hydrating shades. When I’m not swiping on 001, I’m rubbing Lanolips Lemonade into my chapped pout as it’s the perfect primer to prep for lipstick.

I’m in a casual relationship with the IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream.

Somedays I’m so over it and never want to see or smell it again and on others, it’s the first thing I reach for when I wake up. This hyped foundation has such a pigmented and thick consistency that it takes some getting used to. I’m still working on it but for now, I blend half a pump with my fingers until it is sheer and I am covered.

Puff is powerful, girls

Imagine if you could blend a pink fluffy cloud onto your cheeks, well now you can. Say hello to Puff. This tube of millennial delight offers buildable blush in a pillowy formula, perfect for a barely bold makeup day where your flawless dewy skin does all the talking.


NARS x ERDEM, Loves Me Not

This blusher may not have much pan appeal but once swept across my cheeks, this pink powder makes me look like me, but on a really good day. The packaging also adds to the pure delight of this collab, particularly because I’ve been anchoring after a sold out Erdem skirt from A/W17 for about nine months now.



BECCA and I are going steady.

It doesn’t really matter how much sleep I get, I never ever look rested. The caves under my eyes are deep and dark and so I rely on the Becca Brightening Corrector to make me look like I got my beauty sleep. This peachy cream has become my number one bare essential as it illuminates my complexion and brings me back to life.

Moon Lidstar

Glossier’s famous cream eyeshadow provides a sheer wash of colour for boldly bare makeup looks. Lidstar locks onto your lids all day and it is so illuminating your eyelids look lit from within. I’m not complaining though, we all know that good things come to those who glow.
