Lixirskin Electrogel Cleanser
“Slicker than your average cleanser, Lixirskin Electrogel Cleanser comes negatively charged to pull out positively charged toxins while leaving skin feeling fresh. Nifty, no?”

JEM’S TOP 5

Lixirskin Electrogel Cleanser
“Not only have I loved using this cleanser as part of my evening double cleanse, it doubles up perfectly as a mask for the ultimate skin treat.”

Spectrum C03 Brush in Malachite
“A brush this soft is an asset to my makeup bag. I love to swirl this into a loose pigment blusher for a soft focused finish.”

Clean Reserve Sueded Oud Eau de Parfum
“When it comes to fragrance, I’ve always liked a scent that was a little different to the norm – it’s nice to stand out from the crowd and this ticks all the boxes.”

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Ashton
As much as I love a bright lip, there are times when your look just calls for something neutral. The formula of this is second to none; it doesn’t budge, and trust me, I’ve put it through its paces (aka a burger date).”

Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Cell Repair Night Oil
A face oil in winter is like having the heating on: totally necessary and – for me – unnegotiable. Aurelia’s natural formulas make my skin happy, leaving it soft and radiant come morning. Happy skin is a happy me.”

Get Party Ready!

Party worthy skin is all in the prep. The night before an event, I’ll cleanse my skin using Lixirskin’s Electrogel Cleanser as its creamy formula also works as a detoxifying mask to draw out impurities. I’ve then been loving the Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Cell Repair Face Oil for extra nourishment, setting the grounds for a perfectly smooth canvas to apply my makeup. When I’m going heavy on the eyes (using the incredible Code8 Precision Liner) I like to keep my lips a semi-neutral colour, which is where Anastasia Beverly Hills steps in. The shade Ashton is a warm terracotta hue that I initially thought wouldn’t suit me, yet I’m pleasantly surprised. Once on, this doesn’t budge. Not even an inch. A liquid lip is the ideal formula for a night out to ensure longevity – even when you’re going hard out on the cocktails. No evening is complete without a spritz of the Clean Reserve Sueded Oud Eau de Parfum. It attracts many compliments for good reason; it’s such an addictive scent that’s different from the norm.
