The perfect LBD is absolutely timeless, but sometimes it’s how you put the dress together that makes all the difference.
Inspired by Giambattista Valli’s Spring 2013 Collection (see below runway pics – THAT flawless impeccably dewy skin, flushed lips and lightly tousled hair) – we compiled our must-have accessories and finishing touches to a timeless outfit.
A perfect dewy pink lip is essential, Max Factor’s Lipfinity range literally lasts ALL day, so need to re-apply from desk to drinks (in case you don’t believe me, check out this quick video of us road testing the Lipfinity shade ‘Just in Love’).
When it comes to your skin, hydration is key – Jurlique’s latest Rose Moisture Plus Serum enriches the skin and ensures skin stays dewy all day.
Danne Montague King’s Herb & Mineral Mist packs a serious punch, this little miracle worker is enriched with vitamins and minerals to enrich the skin and to active ingredients in your skin care, it is also perfect to revive tired or heavy makeup. Definitely one to keep in the handbag or carry-on during even the shortest flights!
Amazing hair isn’t even questionable when it comes to the perfect complement to an LBD. Whether it’s up or down, it’ll be glossy and gorgeous. For long locks, turn to one of my absolute favourite haircare ranges, Kerastase Cristalliste. One of their latest products is their dual sculpting serum that consists of oil gloss to build hair fibres and an aqueous serum. The result? Hydrated, glossy, luxe locks.
Laura Mercier launches an amazing new high-coverage concealer on July 7th (mark in diary. NOW!) The concealer is designed to completely cover dark under eye circles. Hello make-up bag must have and Monday morning saviour!! The concealer is highly pigmented so just a little goes a long way.
CHANEL’s Healthy Glow Multi-Colour is a one-and-done kind of product, it combines a bronzer, highlighter and blush all in one, to give a healthy glowing flush in one big swoop of a powder brush.
Benefit’s They’re Real push-up liner is truly revolutionary! How many times has a 10-minute makeup look turned into 45-minutes due to a wonky liquid liner… This one-of-a-kind liner is the only fail-proof trick you need to achieve Bridget Bardot doe-eyes in just a minute.
Finish your look with your favourite LBD, and accessorise with edgy flats and a scarf or statement necklace for evenings.
