Award-worthy beauty looks to try in 2018
We've been counting down the days for awards season to officially kick off, and it’s nearly time for the star-studded Golden Globes 2018 to raise the bar in the beauty department. So, what better time to be inspired by some of the nominee’s iconic beauty looks?
Let’s start from the top: eyes are the windows to your soul, so quite rightly they should have the wow factor. Take Mary J Blige, star of Mudbound: she rocks subtle golden hues to create effortlessly smokey eyes. To copy her natural-looking shimmery lids, we’re currently lusting over the No7 Stay Perfect Trio Eye Shadow in Bronze, €13, Boots. It’s a versatile palette that suits all eye colours to really make your peepers pop. Want to add that extra flutter to perk up your look? Invest in these Mac 33 Lash, €14, Mac at BT2.
We all know how important a good skincare regime is so let’s take a leaf out of Big Little Lies’ Zoe Kravitz’s book. To achieve her dewy glow, cleanse and buff away any dry, dull looking skin – Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant, €49.80, Harvey Nichols does a bang-up job. This lightweight cream unblocks pores and smoothes the skin’s surface leaving you prepped and primed. And for removing your makeup after a long day? Use Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate, €44, Kiehl’s. It helps replenish your face overnight, leaving you with visibly restored skin by morning.
A slick of well-applied lippy is a great way to look groomed with minimum effort. We’re big fans of Molly’s Game star Jessica Chastain’s bright and bold collection. A fail-safe red lipstick that’s spot on for all skin tones is Dior Rouge Dior Double Rouge, €36.50, House of Fraser. This lightweight lipstick glides on easily and you can play around with the buildable coverage to your liking. For an everyday nude, give Stila Colour Balm Lipstick in Jessie, €20, Harvey Nichols a try. Add sumptuous, hydrating colour to your pout in one stroke – and thanks to its enriching moisturising properties, it’ll leave lips soft and defined.
