Once January rolls around, my skin has often seen better days and my makeup bag is calling out for an update. Fragrance Direct is one of my go-to places to stock up on new products for the New Year and I've recently picked up a handful of glow-inducing pieces to create the dewy skin I'm after.
A glowy base starts with a good moisturiser and the Elizabeth Eight Hour Cream* is the perfect pick. I don't use this all over my face, but just on the parts that feel parched and need an extra boost of hydration. At over half the price off, nabbing this famous product from Fragrance Direct makes it even better!
Then I go onto primer where I've gone back to an old favourite of mine, the Bourjois Healthy Mix Glow Primer Serum*. It's lightweight meaning it doesn't cake on the skin and the shimmer pigments look subtle and natural too. When used underneath makeup, it makes my foundation go on a look smoother and turns a matte base into a more of an everyday option.
If there's something you treat yourself to this Winter it's the Sleek MakeUP Solstice Highlighting Palette*. If you've been reading blogs for a fair few years you'll probably already have seen or even tried this glow inducing quad. Each highlighter in the palette adds a dreamy radiance to the skin, but it's the bottom two shades that I use the most often. At £3.99 it's an absolute steal and you won't regret it!
Another blast from the past is the Max Factor Creme Puff Blush* which I used to use and made my way through it as it was a favourite in my makeup bag. It's adds a pop of colour to the cheeks that looks natural and has a soft sheen as well.
For my lips, I've gone back to my Nars Audacious Lipstick* as it's got a nourishing formula that sits comfortably, but also delivers a good amount of colour. Although not glossy nor shimmery, I find this great for one I'm wearing a dewy makeup base as it compliments it perfectly.
