Hello everyone! I hope you’re all doing well. Today I am going to be sharing my absolute must have luxury beauty items. Each of these are a little bit more pricey than say a mid-range/high end brand and quite the splurge, but they’ve all landed a spot in this post and will most definitely be repurchased! I will also be sharing a little wishlist I have put together from an online store called Far Fetch. There are 400 boutiques under one online address (www.farfetch.com) and they have recently launched their brand new beauty section which is very exciting! The whole website oozes with luxury and the beauty department is not lacking either, from Kevyn Aucoin to Hourglass they have ALL the beauty lovers favourites! (This post is also a competition entry for bloggers to win a beauty bundle – very exciting!).
So starting with the base, my must have luxury choice is the Diorskin Star Foundation (£33.00) which leaves a beautifully radiant, brightening finish on the skin, medium and buildable coverage and it also looks wonderful in photos. If you have a yellow skintone, you must try this range out! Concealer and highlight, of course we have the wonderful Kevyn Aucoin sensual skin enhancer (£38) - highly pigmented, super creamy and very versatile too, my makeup collection wouldn’t be complete without at least one tub of this (although I have two, that’s how much I love it!). To complete the base I adore the Charlotte Tilbury Air-brush flawless finish skin-perfecting micro-powder (£33.00) which blurs pores, smoothes skin and holds my base in place. I especially love it for retouching my makeup halfway through a busy day, one sweep of this powder and it looks fresh and beautiful again.
NARS Blushers (£21.50) are hands down my favourite from all the blushes I own (and I have two muji drawers stuffed with blush!). The formula, pigmentation and lasting time on the cheeks all make them well worth the little splurge, I have been using D.T for almost two years now and I still haven’t hit pan! Plus the shade range is wonderful, with options for the lightest to the richest in skintone, everyone should own at least one NARS blush! My favourite luxury highlighter is unfortunately a limited edition one from Dior hence I rarely share it on the blog, it feels too mean! However it is one I seriously wish I had bought a back-up for because it is STUNNING. Every time Dior comes out with a collection, it is well worth checking out their highlighters because they’re fantastic at creating them! The second highlighter, is more of an multi-purpose illuminator, the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal (£33). This product is perfect for mixing in with your favourite base to lift your complexion, or even just on the cheekbones and bridge of the nose as it catches the light so beautifully. It’s the product I turn to when I want effortlessly bright and illuminated skin, without looking like I’ve rolled around in highlighter and glitter!
Far Fetch Beauty Wishlist
There are honestly so many wonderful brands to choose from when it comes to Far Fetch Beauty that I could make two of these with ease! Each of these brands are luxurious and extremely high-quality. I have included makeup and skincare, so let us begin! Hourglass Cosmetics have been on the top of my wishlist for the longest time because the powders in particular receive rave reviews! The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette (£56.00) was a cult favourite and I think each of the shades would work well for my medium skintone. I also think the size of the pans are very reasonable for the price! Hourglass Mood Exposure Blush (£28.00) has been on my wishlist for the longest time, since I’ve seen so many other medium skintoned bloggers rave about the shade – isn’t it the most stunning mauve?! Finally from Hourglass, the Mineral Veil Primer (£20.00) has caught my eye recently, it seems like a beautiful base for makeup! I would love to get my hands on the Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder (£35) because once again it has been raved about from ladies with fair skin to medium – I have plenty of bronzers and contour shades in my collection already, but one day I would love to pick this up.
I’m thrilled to see that Far Fetch stock the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops (£36.00) and once I know my shade I’m definitely going to give them a go. The versatility of these is incredible, you can use them with oils, moisturisers, tinted moisturiser and even to make a current base suit your skintone better! Genius idea. From Becca of course I would love to pick up a Shimmering skin Perfector (£30.00) or two! Opal and Moonstone are both on my wishlist, with the latter being more of a cool toned gold. I’m also really interested in the Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector (£19.00), the peachy tone looks perfect for correcting my horrendously dark circles.
Moving on to skincare, I want to try the REN Wake Wonderful Night-Time Facial (£32.00) which is an overnight treatment, promising to leave the skin brighter, more luminous and even-toned. I love the brand and have high expectations! I saw Kaushal on YouTube raving about about the This Works In Transit Camera Close-Up (£30.00) and was intrigued enough to add it to my wishlist! It’s a product which promises to erase the signs of fatigue, boost hydration and prepare the skin for makeup. It sounds like one of those bases you reach for when your skin is having a tired day, or you have a special event coming up. The final item in my wishlist is something I don’t envisage owning at any point in the next two years, but the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil (£85.00!) is raved about for it’s ability to improve the appearance of damaged skin and also help fight wrinkles. The pricetag is shocking, so I feel like it’ll be one of those items I purchase when I get my first real salary after I’ve finished training.
So there you have it everyone, my luxury beauty essentials and all the items on my wishlist from Far Fetch Beauty! Have you checked out their beauty section here? What’s on your wishlist?
