Highlighted, picture-perfect skin

Guardian Angel

Strobing continues to be a big trend this spring. Celebrated beauty brand Kevyn Aucoin has recently released its new Guardian Angel Highlighter. Housed in a sleek compact case, this highlighter features a creamy, lightweight formula designed to create a subtle shimmer while blurring lines and imperfections for a clean, polished, picture-perfect look. The silky balm texture leaves skin feeling baby soft and smooth too. Apply to the cheekbones, forehead, bridge of the nose, or anywhere light naturally reflects for an effortless lit-from-within glow. A must-have essential to creating this season’s strobing makeup look.

Golden radiance

Cellular Radiance Perfecting Fluide Pure Gold_Closed

Few brands can match the esteem and utter luxury of coveted skin care brand La Prairie. Now the Swiss brand has released a new gold standard in skin care – its new “Cellular Radiance Perfecting Fluide Pure Gold.” Harnessing the light-reflecting power of pure gold, this collagen-boosting peptide helps improve skin quality below the surface for smoother looking skin, while golden photo-reflecting agents and pure gold powder provide an immediate golden luminosity. Apply this lightweight gel-emulsion morning and night, using fingertips to gently smooth the product over your face for a beautiful, soft-focus finish. It’s the perfect product to ensure selfie ready skin; just be prepared for its steep price tag, it does, after all, contain one of the world’s most precious metals.
