With so many models to call upon for professional opinion we thought we’d put together a Models Direct review of 2012’s top five beauty must-haves.
Many of us have a favourite moisturiser, lipstick or mascara and some will stick loyally to one brand for years because they trust the name, but which beauty products really are a cut above the rest? With so many models to call upon for professional opinion we thought we’d do just that and put together a Models Direct review of 2012’s top five beauty must-haves.
This product is still a huge favourite in the Models Direct office. It’s a fantasic all-rounder that can be used not only as a fab lip balm but also as a gentle eye-make up remover, brow tidier, cuticle softener or moisturiser. Jennifer Anniston is even rumoured to apply it below each eye at night to prevent wrinkles. We love the rose scented variety, and at just £2 for a 20g pot we can always afford this little luxury!
Estée Lauder Daywear BB Creme
This anti-oxidant ‘Beauty Benefit’ cream has really earned its way into our make up bags as a foundation alternative that is actually good for your skin. It’s oil-free with SPF 35 and is packed with anti-oxidant vitamins including Vitamins C and E, Eukarion and EGT, which is proven to fight free radical damage that can lead to the appearance of ageing. £32 for 30ml.
YSL Touché Éclat
Our models love Yves Saint Laurent’s Touché Éclat. Launched in 1992, this classic brush-tipped highlighter/concealer pen is sold somewhere in the world every 20 seconds – giving it a reputation as the beauty industry’s answer to the magic wand! It contains a light reflecting formula that softens flaws and helps to eliminate shadows and is suitable for all skin types. Add one to your must-haves for around £25.
Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Eye Pencil
This long-lasting eye pencil does exactly what it claims. If you need a liner that just won’t budge then this is the one for you and it comes in a range of gorgeous shades from blackest black to deep emerald green. £17.50.
Neutragena Intense Repair Body Balm
Finally, at this time of year it’s easy to neglect your skin as you cover up in cold weather and turn up the central heating. So Models Direct models would like to remind you to look after your body as well as your face. Ensure that you’ll stay soft from head to toe with this rich Norwegian moisturiser – a bargain at around £5 for 200ml.
