There’s nothing like a little spring clean – especially of the beauty bag variety. In an ‘out-with-the-old-and-in-with-the-new-season-spirit', we took a flick through the new David Jones S/S 2015 beauty catalogue and have comprised a wish list very much worth bookmarking.
You can shop all these beauties (and more) here*.
1. The “White Shirt” of Foundations
While 'natural' skin reigns, a little help looking radiant never hurt anyone. For Spring, it’s all about minimal, clean-looking skin and lightweight makeup – like the white shirt you wear with jeans on a weekend. Yves Saint Laurent Fusion Ink Foundation gives skin a wash of colour and tint without being cakey or made-up. We particularly love that DJ’s are offering a free seven day trial if you visit the counter.
2. The Ultimate Contour Palette
In the spirit of natural beauty, it never hurts to do a little subtle chiseling of the contour variety. The Estee Lauder New Dimension Shape + Sculpt Face Kit instantly highlights, defines and sculpts, allowing you to contour with the expert precision worthy of a Kardashian. The all-in-one contouring kit ensures that every angle is your best angle.
3. The dab-on-juice-cleanse
If you haven’t been chugging green juice all winter, no one need ever know when you front up with an enviable healthy-girl glow. The Napoleon Perdis, Dreamy Duchess Blush Cream will have you looking as healthy as you wish you were. Smooth and velvety, this cream colour can be dabbed on with your fingers and the petal-pink shade is perfectly suited to any skin colour.
4. The ultimate skin saviour
With supernatural skin has superseding superfoods this season, now is the time to invest in your face. Crème de la Mer has earned it’s rep as the uber-cream for good reason. Infused with the brand’s famous “miracle broth” it calms, hydrates parched winter skin and can therefore make is in your skin, and while the price tag may be a little high (remember people, investment), La Mer is the way to go.
5. The massaging eye cream
What’s better than an eye cream? An eye cream that soothes and flushes out fluid as you apply it. Guerlain Abeille Royale Eyetech Eye Sculpt Serum features a divine gold-tip which cools tired eyes, boosts circulation on contact and leaves peepers hydrated and happy. Oh and Guerlain will reward you with a six piece gift set if you spend over $120 on anything from this range. Magnifique.
6. The fashionista fragrance
Hermes are known for their unique, stylish and inimitable scents. The latest work from the master nose of the famed fragrance house, Jean Claude Ellena, Hermes Le Jardin de Monsieur was inspired by a meditation in a Chinese garden with juicy notes of cumquat, jasmine and mint, making it the perfect summer splash.
