We absolutely love a bit of contouring and highlighting…maybe not just a bit! All that the definition and glow that it gives to our cheeks is something that we cannot deny and is something we always rely on to feel like a million bucks. We have two favourites…one is a cult classic, perfect for daytime and the other is a brand new launch that everyone is talking about and that’s with a reason.
The first is no other than the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit – Surreal Light. A palette that comes with not only highlighting powder but also finishing powder, 2 blush options and a bronzer. If you’re lucky and you don’t have problem skin, you can just use that and add a concealer and you’ll be good to go. The highlighter gives you a nice subtle glow perfect of the daytime. You can always build it up if you want something heavier for nighttime, and never forget that if you slightly wet your brush that can make it even stronger.
The second palette is the new addition to Huda Beauty’s makeup range and she did not disappoint. It’s a 4 step palette where you prep, set, sculpt and flush and you’re ready to go! We absolutely love this one for a special dinner or if you are going for a night out. The high definition it gives to your cheeks is something like nothing else. Also if you are looking to take pictures this is going to catch the light and you will be glowing like you never did before.

Shoot for: Chanel Official
Chanel is timeless… the brand is without any doubts one of the biggest and most popular giants in the fashion world. It definitely has the power to control the trend-setting process of every season. There are some Chanel classics that will never fade away. Quoting Coco Chanel: “I created the most well-known style in the world, because fashion is ephemeral, but style is eternal.”
I was on my way to meet a friend at a café in East London. In days like these I usually like to wear luxurious pieces such as this Chanel flap bag with a top handle, in calfskin & gold metal green and also, this long necklace made with glass pearls in gold & pearly white colour mixed in a more basic outfit like a shirt on and jeans trousers.
The reason for such taste is that I think that a balance in style is essential! I understand that it might sound very hard to not fall in love with all these amazing luxury trends hitting the catwalk but we need to remember that not all of them necessarily suit all people. The key is always to try to simplify. And do not worry, it does not mean being “basic”.
Think about simple questions: What is your existing style? What brands and trends would go with it? Is there a certain balance in your outfit?
