It’s getting lighter guys. I know it’s cold and grey and we’re not through the winter woods yet but it’s getting lighter. Light when we get out of bed in the morning. Lighter when we stand by the kettle and look out of the window late afternoon. Lighter. Spring is coiled and ready to….
So. What does this mean for our make-up. Well, it means that, to a certain extent, we need to start working with light again. As the year opens up, we transition from starlit to sunlit. Contouring becomes subtler; more about radiance than ruthless definition.
Hourglass is a brand for people who love make-up. Not exactly mainstream, it is a beacon of good quality and classy creativity. Their Ambient Lighting Edit is a fabulous collection of six powder shades designed to blur imperfections, reduce redness, add vibrancy, brighten, highlight, bronze, define and generally illuminate and polish. Frankly it’s resplendent. Make friends with it and it will not let you down.
