There are some makeup products that don’t really do a great deal, but I absolutely love anyway. Tinted lip balm. That Soap & Glory Luminising Powder. This little gem from e.l.f.
The e.l.f. Undereye Concealer and Highlighter in Light & Glow, £4.50, is a double-ended wand with a liquid concealer on one end, highlighter on the other.
Really, I use both ends to highlight. The concealer is light in coverage, so not up to covering blemishes or dark circles. What it does do perfectly is lighten any areas you want to highlight – the undereye area, cheekbones, bridge of the nose. It blends in effortlessly without disrupting your base, and has a pretty, luminous finish.
The highlighter adds a lovely sheen. That’s it. Doesn’t add colour, no major glow. The most subtle illumination possible. But it does so without any glitter, so is perfect for a no-makeup makeup day, or as a base for powder highlight.
Plus the formula includes some nice skincare ingredients. Vitamins A and E, chamomile, green tea and caffeine. To tighten, brighten and hydrate.
Not bad for less than a fiver.
Til next time,
