Yes, you did it. You’ve made it to the end of 2022. This year feels long. In fact, I’ve been accidentally dating the ‘2023’ stuff for about six weeks now. The calendar may not be complete yet, but my brain is definitely ready.
It’s not that it’s been a bad year, it’s just that we’re all in recovery mode from the pandemic still raging in January. I can’t help thinking that in the future, all of this will feel like a blur, and we’ll struggle to distinguish individual events from the general feeling of being a bit unsettled.
With that in mind, I thought I’d dedicate today’s column to a few products that I hope we don’t forget — these are the gems from 2022 that I will definitely use. use in the next 12 months.
I’ll start with the Irish ones, because they’re my favorites, and it’s been a pleasure to continue spreading the great work of the Aimee Connolly brand. This year, sculpture continue to develop and launch products that work without breaking you in the process. The Satin Silk Collection Include Long-lasting foundation and concealer (€30 and €18 respectively through sculpturebyaimee.com), provides excellent and long-lasting coverage without leaving skin flaking or dehydrated.
A little bit will go a long way with this one, so you don’t have to replace it quickly. With that in mind, make sure you get the right color, easy to choose through the brand’s Sample Pack, only €1.50 and available on their website.
Another foundation that millions of makeup artists love this year is Beautiful Skin Foundation by Charlotte Tilbury (€44 through arnotts.ie). This product is wonderfully moisturizing and provides medium, buildable coverage to the skin. Honestly, I found my skin to look healthy and radiant using this product, it’s all I was looking for.
give Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Perfection Filter run for its money this year is Elf . Halo Glow Liquid Filter (€15 through start up.ie), a similar product that provides luminosity under or beyond makeup and is much more cost-effective.
Video of the day
Now, to the lips. Where in the past we were all obsessed with looks, everything is fine today. From stains to shine, brands are racing to launch new, innovative formulas.
Two highlights this year are Fenty Beauty’s Poutsicle Hydrating Lip Stain (€19 past start up.ie) and Hourglass Phantom Volumizing Glossy Lip Balm (€38 past brownthomas.com). The former delivers highly pigmented color that won’t budge for hours, while the latter is an ultra-comfortable formula that delivers a high shine without stickiness.
Soft, well-groomed brows continue to be in fashion and there are countless products to help keep them in place. Few provide the same lasting strength as the cement of Got2b by Schwarzkopf pasted 4 browsers and edges (€5.99 over inishpharmacy.com), However.
If the end of that dish is a little crunchy for you (and it’s a bit crunchy, I admit), Refy’s eyebrow sculpture (€20 past brownthomas.com) has become a cult classic for a reason. It provides excellent staying power without excessive stiffness.
If you’re someone who doesn’t like receiving compliments, then look away now, because I’m about to tell you about a product that delights them every time I wear it. The true beauty of Aideen Kate’s Sunset Red Duo (€34.99 last truebeautybyak.com) is a lipstick and eyeliner combo, that’s all you need to have a perfect red lips. The liner is a true red, while the lipstick is a nice bright orange red with a matte finish. This shade looks great on a variety of skin tones, from pale to olive and bold shades. Comfortable to wear, with great durability — I’ve used this duo time and time again.
I remember the first time I used it Clinique’s Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm (€34 through mccauley.ie) vividly, despite the fact that it was 30 years ago. (Yes, I’m old.) I couldn’t believe how quickly and effectively it was able to remove and remove my makeup, even the minimum 12 coats of mascara that I’m mostly time-dependent on. that point. There are many oils and makeup removers on the market these days, but at the time, Take the Day Off was a game changer and it still leads the market because it’s so effective. Fragrance-free, this won’t sting your eyes, and because of the little bit of long-lasting effect, the jar will last you a long time (remember it has a shelf life of six months).
… Something new
According to my experience, IT cosmetics products often do exactly what you want, so it’s no surprise that the new product Bye Bye Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm 3 in 1 (€39 past start up.ie) Does what it says on the tin. With minimal effort, this balm will loosen and break down even the most stubborn makeup quickly. If you find your skin tight or tight after washing your face, then an oil like this is ideal, as it’s gentle and contains vitamin E and rosehip oil, which brighten and hydrate. Simply massage gently over face and remove with a warm, damp face towel.
