I’m a BIG fan of low maintenance make-up. I especially love products that glide on using my fingertips, so always look for gorgeous creamy consistencies when it comes to concealers and lip and eye tints. Neat, handbag-size products are also a must, as I like to be able to reapply throughout the day. Add cruelty fee and organic to my list (I’m not high maintenance – promise!) and Jill Dempsey’s Lid and Cheek Tints tick all my boxes.
These velvety lid and cheeks tints come in a variety of gorgeous shades (6 for the cheeks and 8 for lids) and they retail at £26.50 (thisisbeautymart.com). I love how lightweight these formulas are, leaving my skin with a dewy and super youthful looking finish.
Jill has also launched a mini fan brush (£20.50 thisisbeautymart.com). It’s a one-stop wonder that works on everything from eye tint to highlighter for a more controlled application. I was lucky enough to spend some time with Jill, and have a mini-makeover at the hands of this Hollywood beauty guru.
Firstly, she showed me how to apply her deep burgundy kohl pencil (£18.50 thisisbeautymart.com). Jill drew into my socket then using the lid tint blended to create a more dramatic evening look. Having spent years of my life in the make-up chair, I never get bored of learning tips from pros like Jill. And you only need look at her Instagram to see the sort of A Lister faces she’s worked on – Julia Roberts to name but one!
After a gorgeous afternoon spent with Jill at The Shop at Bluebird, I can’t recommend these products enough. For the lids, I love the shade PLUM, giving a glossy effect on the eyes in a warm, crimson tone. BRONZE is also a must-have shade for eyes – it’s darker than Plum and gives a deeper coverage. For the cheeks, I adore SUNNY, which does exactly as it says on the tin! It’s suitable for most skin tones and really warms your complexion with just the slightest hint of pink. POPPY is also gorgeous on cheeks – apply to your apples for a youthful, rosy, peachy pop of colour. I also use this shade on my lips, either with or without a gloss over the top.
So if, like me, are after fuss-free application in creamy, lightweight formulas then look no further than these delicious tints. Enjoy!
