THE SKIN SAVIOR: NET-A-PORTER The Hero Skin Ingredients Kit
Skincare is confusing (which ingredient does what? What to use when?), which is where this carefully edited kit comes in. With eight products, each focused on a key ingredient that helps give you a healthy skin, you can target your skin concerns as needed. Including a brightening vitamin C+ Collagen Deep Cream from Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare, a Luna Sleeping Night Oil from Sunday Riley, a Clarifying Mask from Tata Harper, Retexturizing Treatment from Lancer, and Dr. Barbara Sturm’s anti-inflammatory Aloe Vera Gel, this kit has everything you need to reset your skin.
FOR LUSCIOUS LIPS: Gucci Beauty Lipstick Rouge à Lèvres Voile in Agatha Orange
Many bolder, brighter lipsticks can feel drying on the lips (we suggest always moisturizing before applying), but this warm orangey-red lipstick is comfortable, creamy and glides on smoothly. And when a color’s translucent, as this is, you don’t have to worry so much about undertone and how well the color sits against your skin tone, as you would with a more opaque lipstick.
THE BARELY-THERE BASE: Rose Inc Skin Enhance Luminous Tinted Serum
Exactly right for the new lighter makeup that most of us now want, this sheer formulation makes skin look better without looking ‘made up’. Plus, because it’s blended with hyaluronic acid, it hydrates and plumps up without feeing heavy or too ‘covering’. Just perfect for warm-weather make up and vacation packing.
THE SCENE-STEALING SCENT: Byredo de Los Santos Eau de Parfum
This is a scent that turns heads. In just one spritz on pulse points, this intoxicating elixir from cult fragrance house Byredo quickly commands your full attention. In an homage to Dia de los Muertos and All Saints’ Day ceremonies, the mix of musk, sage and mirabelle makes for an impactful finish to create a genderless scent that is truly memorable. What’s more, this fragrance is fully vegan.
FOR A CHEEKY GLOW: Huda Beauty Cheeky Tint Blush Stick in Coral Cutie
So easy to use, this chunky cheek color blends over skin to give a natural flush of color. You can layer it up for more intensity, create a subtle contour, or use it over eyelids and lips for a one-step ‘pulled-together’ face. Although it comes in five shades, anything peachy-toned is great for brightening up a dull complexion – plus, it works perfectly with fingers, so no brush required.
THE SUPER-SERUM: Susanne Kaufmann Renewing Complexion Serum
Kaufmann is known for sourcing potent plant extracts to ramp up the performance of your existing skincare regime, which is why we love this renewing serum. It cleverly uses chestnut, oat oil and argan tree leaf to support collagen and soften fine lines; it also layers beautifully under makeup.
