Irresistible Afterglow Eyeshadow Palette, £55 | NARS

I found this eye palette during a trip to Miami earlier this year when it wasn't available in the UK but it's finally launched here. True to its name, this palette is irresistible – it contains a variety of eyeshadows in matte, satin and glitter finishes, all of which are universally flattering. What's great is that there's not a single shade in the palette that feels out of place or unwearable, which is often the case with other palettes (there’s always that one shade you don’t use). You can easily create looks for both day and night, and thanks to the intense pigments, application is effortless. I always get asked about foolproof eyeshadow palettes for beginners and this is a good place to start.

Huile Prodigieuse Or Florale, £22 | Nuxe

There hasn't been a holiday where I’ve not packed my trusty Nuxe dry oil – it’s become a staple in my skincare routine because it’s the ultimate multitasking essential. Infused with seven precious oils, it nourishes skin and hair, leaving it smooth and velvety without any greasy residue. I love the golden shimmer formula, which is perfect for enhancing my complexion, legs and décolletage. Now, this rose gold version comes with an iridescent pearly finish, so it adds an extra flattering glow to the skin, giving that lit-from-within look.

Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Expert Dual Action Serum, £18 | Nivea

I love indulging my sweet tooth but I'm mindful of how sugar affects my skin. Excess sugar leads to glycation, which breaks down collagen and accelerates skin aging, resulting in wrinkles, sagging and dullness. Nivea's new Q10 Dual Action Serum, featuring Glycostop technology, combats glycation-induced ageing. With its high concentration of pure Q10, it effectively prevents and reduces wrinkles caused by glycation, ensuring healthier, more youthful-looking skin. Incorporating this serum into your routine helps shield against glycation's effects, so think of it as advanced anti-ageing care.

UV Expert Supra Screen SPF50 + UV Serum, £40 | Lancôme

Regardless of the weather, sunscreen should always be the last step in your skincare routine. However, many formulas aren't that enjoyable to use. Lancôme has recently introduced its new UV Expert Supra Screen SPF 50+ – an invisible UV serum perfect for those who don’t like the typical look or feel of sunscreen. This sunscreen blends seamlessly on all skin tones, effectively combating the signs of photo-ageing. Fast-absorbing and lightweight, Supra Screen offers a truly invisible finish without any greasiness or white marks.

Extra Plump Lip Serum In Bare Cocoa, £32 | Bobbi Brown

If you were to look in any of my handbags, you'll always find an extra lip product tucked away somewhere. Its formula works wonders, plumping and defining lips while adding a subtle shine. This hydrating lip plumper combines the best of a lip balm and nourishing lip oil to both condition and plump the lips. Originally available in the universally flattering shade, ‘Bare Pink’, the brand has now introduced additional shades. Personally, my favourite is ‘Bare Cocoa’ —a milky chocolate brown that's my perfect nude. With 11 shades available, though, you're sure to find your perfect shade.
