The best makeup products loved by Liz
Before we dive into Liz’s best makeup products, this magnifying mirror is one that’s really handy to have on the dressing table. You can easily adjust the angle of the mirror to a comfortable position. It also has a fantastic magnifying effect, making applying eye makeup and tweezing brows a breeze!
Prepare your skin
Prepping your skin before applying makeup is a must. Liz loves to use the Jeju Stem Cell Moisture Shot Serum by BEAUTY PIE to give skin an extra moisture boost. Use the code LIZLOVES at BEAUTY PIE for your first month free.
If you’ve been following Liz for a while, you’ll know she’s a big fan of both rose and neroli. This gorgeous Rose and Neroli mist from Odacite is perfect for spritzing on before applying makeup for a fresh and dewy look.
Achieve the perfect base
Apply an even base with your foundation. Having a selection of different foundations will help to match your skin tone as it changes throughout the year. Liz loves to use Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche Éclat Le Teint Foundation and Chanel’s Vitalumière Satin Smoothing Fluid Makeup.
Blend your foundation with a little primer – Liz loves Nude Radiance from Burberry – before applying to your face. Work this well into the skin, sweeping over your eyelids, up into the hairline and a little down the neck.
A creamy concealer can help to brighten any dark circles under your eyes. Liz especially likes to apply concealer in the corner of her eye socket, by the bridge of the nose. She finds Clarins Instant Concealer and IT Bye Bye Undereye most effective. Both last all day, without drying or caking.
Add structure and glow
Bring colour to your face with a touch of rouge! Smiling can help to find the apples of your cheeks. Then simply add a few spots of blush and works upwards into the skin for a fresh glow. These are a few of Liz’s favourite blushes:
- Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge
- BEAUTY PIE Smart Powder Blush (don’t forget you can enjoy your first month free at BEAUTY PIE using the code LIZLOVES at checkout)
- Clinique Chubby Stick
- Laura Mercier Blush Colour Infusion
Once your foundation, concealer and blusher are in place, set your look with a light dusting of translucent face powder. Liz has used Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder for years and considers it to be one of the best, especially when applied with Laura Mercier’s luxurious powder brush.
Bronzer is a great way to add definition. Liz recommends this pallet by St Tropez. Use a sturdy powder brush and gently brush into cheeks and under the jawline to create the illusion of shadow.
To finish, lightly sweep warming illuminator over your cheekbones and temples. Liz loves this one from Laura Mercier, which gives a lovely, naturally warm finish.
Make your eyes pop
Highlight the waterline of your upper eyelids with a soft but long-lasting liquid kohl pencil. Charlotte Tilbury is one of the very best. It’s a great shade of soft minky black that sharpens easily and can be used as an eyeshadow too.
Finish your look with a generous lashing of mascara. IT Cosmetic’s Tightline 3 in 1 mascara is ideal for prepping your lashes. Wiggle into the lash line to separate and define your lashes, while depositing a little colour. Follow with Clinique Lash Power Mascara.
