What is your go-to product to give you an instant glow?

My go-to for an instant glow is the Boscia Rosewater mist with Witch Hazel. It’s refreshing and also leaves a natural, dewy finish. I always get compliments on my skin after I’ve used this product.

Your hero product or skincare trick for staying flawless during party season?

I don’t go anywhere without my Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless finish powder. If I’ve had my makeup on all day and I want to head out for the evening but don’t have time to re-do my makeup, then I add Airbrush Flawless finish under my eyes and all the places I would usually highlight – this literally gives my skin the airbrushed flawless finish.

What are your three skin saviour hero products?

I’m obsessing with The Ordinary’s 1% Retinol which I’ve been using for around three weeks now –it’s a game-changer. I also love the Dr. Lancer Caviar Lime Acid Peel – I use this once a week as an overnight treatment to feed my skin and nourish it. In the morning it’s plump and super smooth. Lastly, I don’t leave the house without applying Dr. Barbara Sturm Sun Drops SPF 50. This is the best SPF I’ve used for my face as it doesn’t leave a greasy feeling on the skin and you can still apply your makeup as normal.

What is your go-to product to give you an instant glow?

I love the Ole Henriksen Phat Glow facial. It’s packed with PHAs which are acids that require no downtime and make the skin look plumper too. It leaves my skin really smooth and glowy and makeup goes on better too. I have dry and slightly sensitive skin and if I follow the directions it never causes any sensitivity or redness that other acid peels sometimes cause.

Your hero product or skincare trick for staying flawless during party season?

A good primer! I love the hydro grip primer from Milk Makeup because it really does make my foundation stay longer without causing my skin to look dry and chalky. The party season is always super busy and I like to just apply my makeup in the morning and have it last all day with only minor touch-ups. I also love having a good compact powder to reapply during the day. IT Cosmetics bye bye pores is one of my favourites. It comes with a little sponge too so you don’t have to carry a brush.

What are your three skin saviour hero products?

A toner – wearing makeup all day and now a mask too, can cause congestion which then causes breakouts. I love using Pixi’s Clarity Tonic which has salicylic acid and helps keep zits at bay.

A mask – my skin can get a bit dry from the colder weather and the Clinique Moisture Surge mask is extremely hydrating without being too heavy. I put it on before bed and wake up with healthy, hydrated skin.

A cleanser – holiday season makeup can be super glamorous but it needs to come off at the end of the day. I swear by the Eve Lom cleansing balm to completely remove all my makeup. The consistency is great for breaking up heavy foundations and even waterproof products. It also doesn’t strip the moisture from my skin and it never feels tight afterwards.

What is your go-to product to give you an instant glow?

I like to use an overnight hydrating mask with hyaluronic acid to hydrate my skin and give it an instant glow or the 111SKIN Celestial Black Facial Diamond Lifting and Firming Mask is also amazing.

Your hero product or skincare trick for staying flawless during party season?

I love my day and night vitality serum by embyou Skin, as well as the advanced ceramide capsules by Elizabeth Arden for an instant glow under my eyes. I like to also gently massage my skin using a rose quartz roller by Omorovicza which is perfect to use over and over again.

What are your three skin saviour hero products?

I am currently obsessed with embyou products so totally in love with vitality eye cream, vitality serum and day cream. Makeup looks amazing on me since I started using this routine for flawless skin preparation before makeup.

What is your go-to product to give you an instant glow?

My go-to product as skincare would be the Truth Serum from Ole Henriksen and makeup would be the Cali Kissed Palette from Smashbox.

Your hero product or skincare trick for staying flawless during party season?

The Estée Lauder Serum advanced night repair, use it for only three weeks you’ll already see results. I also use ice on my face before I put on any makeup.

What are your three skin saviour hero products?

If I had to choose three it would be the soap cleanser from Clinique, the serum from Ole Henriksen and the soft moisturiser from La Mer.
