These are our top 5 beauty picks you need now

As the new season appears it’s not just our wardrobes we need to update, our beauty collection could do with a new lease of life too.

Here we have picked 5 essential beauty items that you need now.

They’ll give your look a lift and they’ll make you even more excited to delve into your beauty routine.

First up is an item that you’ve most likely seen everywhere, the adorable Cheek Pop colours from Clinique, which are almost too pretty to use. The powder blushes are moulded into a pretty flower design which actually takes quite a while to wear down, so now you won’t have to worry about using the product.

The colours add an instant pop to your cheeks and are incredibly flattering and easy to blend. We particularly favour the coral shade which is a must-have for when your skin gets a little more tanned this season.

The Lancome Lip lover glosses are the latest from the brand, and while it may be called a gloss it certainly packs a punch in the pigment department. These are strong colours with a high-shine finish that feel nourishing on the lips and not at all sticky.

They’re a great formula and they stand the test of time too, what’s more the colour stains the lips too subtly. So when the gloss has worn away there is still a hint of colour on the lips – ideal if you’re not one for upkeep throughout the day.

Moxi brushes are a must-try if you’re looking to add some new brushes into your collection, and we suggest trying out the gift set which includes all five of the range, the brushes are multi-use, we find ourselves using them for a number of different tasks, especially the Flat Top Angle brush which is perfect to create a flawless finish with your foundation and of course the must-have beauty look of contouring like Kim Kardashian.

The foundation brush is super soft and easy to use, we prefer this to apply our under-eye concealer as the bristles are incredibly soft and the powder brush picks up a generous amount of product so we like this for cheek colour.

Whether you pick up just one brush or the whole set, it’s certain to say you won’t be disappointed with the quality of these.

Paul & Joe Silky Smooth foundation glides seamlessly onto the skin and creates a flawless finish with slight dewy look to the skin. Not only is the product a beauty to use, but the bottle looks beautiful on our dressing table too. Well, that’s what comes with all of the Paul & Joe beauty products.

If you’re looking to try a new foundation this season we couldn’t recommend this product any more, it’s incredibly lightweight so it’s perfect for the warmer weather.

Finally, for those wanting to steer clear of tanning this season, but of course want to add some colour to their complexion the new offering from Fake Bake is going to be right up your street. The Anti-Ageing fake tan cream, The Face, is easy to use, incredibly kind to the skin and adds just the right amount of colour. Plus it’s undetectable under your make-up. Not only will you be combating anti-ageing from avoiding the sun, but this product will be helping to fight the signs of ageing too.

We love this as it doesn’t clog the pores, like we’ve found with some other fake tan products, feels incredibly lightweight and leaves us with a healthy glow. Apply this in the evening before bed, cleanse your face like normal in the morning and you’re left with a subtle hint of colour that doesn’t fade in an annoying patchy way.

Which of these five products will you be adding to your beauty stash?
