5 Make-up products you did not know you needed

I love quirky make-up products, ones that I never knew I needed until they were invented. However these five that I am featuring this week are more than quirky, they actually work.

Studio 10 Youth Lift Glow-Plexion: This is my number 1 go to product that gives my face a glow. Since I had a masterclass with Grace Fodor, Make-up products with a difference / CountryWivesfounder of Studio 10, I no longer wear foundation and just use Miracle Serum, Primer, concealer and then Glowplexion (all from Studio 10) and I am good to go. I use it as a highlighter to my cheeks, a dab on my chin and down the centre of my nose and I even use it on my eyelids. This is a brilliant product – much more natural than a bronzer and so moisturising so it leaves your skin looking dewy. Click HERE to buy.

Make-up products with a difference / CountryWivesThe Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane: We all know about Retinol and this product is in most beauty editors bathroom cabinets. However this is the new improved version with 5% Retinoid. I have only used the 2% Retinoid from The Ordinary and have found that made a difference to my fine lines and pigmentation spots. Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane is a water-free solution which contains a 5% concentration of an advanced retinoid active complex called Granactive Retinoid that has been shown to offer better results against multiple signs of ageing than retinol without any of the irritation and drawbacks common with retinol.  For £11.90 it is so much better than all of the expensive products on the market.
