THE IN-TRAY

Six skincare and makeup sets to get on your radar

Glow Recipe Glowipedia: Dewy Skin Set

When it comes to plump, juicy skin, Glow Recipe dew it right every time. The dewy skin look is one of the most well-known trends to come out of K-beauty. The key to achieving the dewy skin effect is to opt for lightweight layers that plump and brighten the complexion, while softening the appearance of imperfections. Everything you need to step through a dewy skin routine is on offer in this set. You can gently exfoliate with the Watermelon Glow Toner (this unclogs and tightens pores while providing hydration), then add a layer of Banana Soufflé for instant hydration and overall luminosity (fun fact: the magnesium and potassium helps restores skin’s hydration levels). Top it off with the brand’s bestselling Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask; it de-puffs, plumps and brightens. And there you have it, a K-beauty routine all wrapped up and ready to go.

Go-To Misbehaving Skin Set

If there’s one thing Go-To know how to do, it’s pull misbehaving skin into line. This trio of full-size skin saviours each play a part in a routine that aims to keep skin calm, happy and well-behaved at all times. You can kick things off with their Properly Clean Foaming Cleanser to remove any makeup, dirt or excess oil and then gently buff away dead skin cells and resurface using the Exfoliating Swipeys (these are especially good for texture or blemishes). Top it all off with a few drops of Face Hero (a bestseller all year round)—it’s formulated with a potent mix of plant and nut oils and is rich in fatty acids to hydrate, rejuvenate and nourish any complexion. The result? Clear, smooth and glowing skin, sans breakouts (thanks, Go-To).

Glow Recipe Glowipedia: Bouncy Skin Set

Another popular K-beauty trend is all about creating ‘bouncy’ skin. As you can imagine, this is an effect where skin is so hydrated and plump, it almost looks buoyant and overall fuller and healthier in appearance. Each product in this set is a step towards bouncy skin—you can gently exfoliate with the Watermelon Glow Toner, followed by the Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream for instant hydration, then in the evenings use the Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask. During the day, you can use the Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist to refresh your makeup look or simply spritz onto bare skin for instant hydration. The Watermelon Glow Lip Pop can be applied as part of this routine to breathe new life into dry or dehydrated lips.

MAC Velvet Teddy Lip Kit

Take your love of Velvet Teddy to the next level with this trio of lip essentials. This is a set contains everything you need for a longwearing lip look. MAC’s Prep + Prime Lip Primer creates a smooth, hydrating base that makes sure the matte texture of the lipstick lasts all day. Then the Boldly Bare Lip Pencil makes the perfect match for the Velvet Teddy lipstick shade—you can apply it as a fill all over the lips before popping on Velvet Teddy, or simply apply it around the outline of the lips for a more defined, long-lasting lip look.

Juice Beauty Green Apple Brightening Kit

Cleanse, treat, moisturise and target the appearance of dull, uneven skin with this kit. Each product is powered by malic acid (found in the skin of green apples) which exfoliates dead cells on the outermost layer of skin and promotes cell turnover, leaving skin more even and brighter while tackling clogged pores. Other ingredients in this lineup include aloe leaf juice to help skin’s hydration and shea butter which soothes and softens. This kit is the perfect way to get acquainted with Juice Beauty and work out which products they have on offer work for you and your skin.

Glow Recipe Glowipedia: Glass Skin

Glass skin, as the name suggests, is all about creating a smooth, almost reflective-like appearance. To create this hydrating sheen across all features, concentrate on exfoliation and hydration. In this set, you’ll find the Pineapple-C Bright Serum, which has three potent forms of antioxidant-rich vitamin C to brighten dark spots and eliminate dullness. Then, layer on the hydration with the Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturiser which nourishes and soothes without feeling heavy. Finally, the brand’s famous Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask can be worn overnight or as a quick treatment for an extra boost of moisture that leaves your positively radiant.
