This box has now sold out!

Our Christmas Limited Edition GLOSSYBOX is coming soon! Worth over £130 and filled with 11 stand-out beauty products, it features incredible beauty brands. I’ve already revealed that this box includes the HUDA Beauty Warm Brown Obsessions Palette and now I’m thrilled to announce that it also boasts two iconic products: Laura Mercier's setting powder and NARS' Orgasm blush.

About The Iconic Laura Mercier Setting Powder

If you ask any makeup lover what their favourite Laura Mercier product is, chances are that they will tell you it’s the Translucent Loose Setting Powder.

Finely milled and weightless, this invisible powder is formulated with silica and light-reflecting particles that instantly blur imperfections. They also work to minimise the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles.

The Laura Mercier setting powder goes on smoothly without looking cakey. It also fills out fine lines without creasing.

Another great thing about this powder is that it is completely translucent. It creates a flawless, natural-looking finish on every skin tone.

How To Use The Laura Mercier Setting Powder

Setting powders are makeup bag essentials because they’re so versatile. You can use the powder to:

  • Set Your Foundation

If you want to keep your foundation on all day long, I’d recommend buffing setting powder over your whole face using a large fluffy brush. It will blur the appearance of your pores and leave you with an even-looking skin tone.

  • Bake Your Makeup

Apply concealer to the areas you’d like to brighten, then apply powder over the areas you’ve just covered and leave it to sit for 5 minutes. You can then dust off the excess using a fan brush.

The result? It fills out fine lines and wrinkles, creating a smooth finish.

  • Absorb Excess Oil

Those of you who have oily skin will be thrilled to discover that the Laura Mercier setting powder will also help to reduce shine. Simply dust a light layer onto any areas that are a little too oily and the powder will soak up that unwanted excess. You’ll be left with a gorgeous, shine-free complexion!

  • Create A Base For Your Eyeshadow

Apply and blend a thin layer of concealer onto your whole eyelid. Then, collect a little powder onto an eyeshadow brush and use it to set your concealer. It will create the perfect base for your eyeshadow and make your eye look last even longer.

Now that you can make the most of Laura Mercier's setting powder, it's time to discover the second iconic makeup product featured in the Christmas Limited Edition GLOSSYBOX.

Meet Every Beauty Lovers’ Favourite Blush: The NARS Orgasm

NARS is one of those brands that needs no introduction. With bestselling and award-winning products taking the beauty world by storm, NARS have earned their place in the makeup bags of all who try their must-haves.

  • Why NARS Orgasm Blush Is Iconic

NARS are most famous for their blushes -and of course the iconic shade Orgasm. Highly-pigmented with a soft, golden and shimmery undertone, it’s no surprise that this is one of the top five bestselling blushes out there. Oh, and have I mentioned that it was nominated by Vogue UK for a lifetime achievement award?

How To Use The NARS Orgasm Blush

One of the key reasons why NARS’ Orgasm blush has proven so popular is that it has universal appeal. Flattering on all skin tones, it can be used to create three distinct looks:

  • Ethereal Glow

If it’s a soft, natural and healthy glow that you’re after, here’s a tip. Use a tight and tapered brush that is still quite fluffy to apply the blush to the apples of your cheeks and gently blend the powder in.

  • Sculpt And Define

To give your face a little more shape and definition, you should follow this method. Use a dense, tapered brush to apply the blush from your hairline at the top of your cheekbones down towards the corner of your mouth. Make sure you stop 2 finger-widths away from your mouth, then blend the blush upwards.

  • Lift And Brighten

To enliven your whole complexion, using a soft, tapered brush to apply the blush from the top of your apples up towards your cheekbones. Blend it in and wrap it up around your eyes towards the edge of your forehead.

With these top tips, you'll have a glowy and healthy-looking complexion all winter long!
