Makeup Bag Update for 2017
January 27, 2017
2017 is in full force, signaling the perfect time to update your makeup routine and cosmetics bag. Below, you’ll find a fresh assemblage of skincare and beauty that will have you putting your best face forward all year.
Begin by embracing the brand-new La Prairie Line Interception Power Duo. This genius pairing features dual-chambered packaging, brimming with potent antiaging formulas specifically designed for day and night. Wrinkles, sun damage, and expression lines are diminished for a noticeably smoother, brighter, and more youthful visage in about 14 days.
For your base, try the Tom Ford Waterproof Foundation/Concealer; its customizable coverage ranges from sheer to full, making it a versatile option for an even canvas. Bonus: It comes in a lightweight, portable tube that’s destined to live in your makeup bag. Cheeks will benefit from the radiant Oribe Illuminating Face Palette. With three incandescent hues, this gorgeous compact streamlines the bronzing, blushing, and highlighting process. For a fresh flush that mimics the effect of brisk air, consider the Laura Mercier Windflush Cheek Color; stippled onto the apples of the cheeks, it’s marvelous for “no-makeup makeup” days. In the evening hours, take your look up a notch with the Le Métier de Beauté Creme Fresh Tint for Lips and Eyes in Zinnia. Just a touch of this bold, fuchsia pink cream blush brightens the face for a sophisticated, polished effect. Plus, it can be used on lips for stunning continuity in a pinch.
Possessing the capabilities of multiple brow products in a single pencil, the Edward Bess Fully Defined Brow Duo expertly fills in sparse areas for a full and feathery look and adds a subtle highlight for brows that pop. Additionally, both sides of the pencil are fully retractable, ensuring that your makeup bag isn’t unnecessarily cluttered with a sharpener. Brighten up the under-eye area with the multitasking lilah b. Virtuous Veil Concealer & Eye Primer. Velvety smooth with impeccable ingredients, it also works as an excellent eyeshadow primer. For lids, the Sisley-Paris Photo 4 Ombres Dream Palette contains four neutral shades that effortlessly blend to create a fetching daytime eye; buff a bit more of the two darker hues into the crease to transition to evening with a soft and smoky look. Next, maximize your fringe with the latest from Yves Saint Laurent. The Shock Volumizing Mascara drenches lashes in fragrant, jet-black wonder (infused with YSL’s own Black Opium) that instantly thickens and lengthens.
For lips, indulge in some of the most innovative formulas on the market. The very lightweight Giorgio Armani Lip Magnets have vivid color payoff that brilliantly balances the properties of both a stain and a lipstick. A more robust take on liquid lip color, the Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Liquid Rouge walks the line between stain and gloss, drenching lips in a hydrating color spectrum of jewel tones. Matte lips are easy to achieve with the resplendent Marc Jacobs Le Marc Liquid Lip Creme. In six neutral shades, there’s a nude for everyone. Lest gloss lovers be left out of the mix, the Givenchy Gelee d’Interdit Plumping Lip Gloss boasts a cushiony, nonsticky texture that imparts cellophane color and infinite shine.
Finally, toss the purse-friendly SK-II Mid-Day Essence into your handbag to instantly refresh the face. Packed with the restorative power of Pitera, it’s the key to glowing skin on the go. Finish your updated routine with a spritz of Byredo Belle de Tanger. The mélange of bitter orange, violet, and cashmere divinely captivates the senses, possessing all of the essential earmarks of a signature scent.
