The keyword for women-of-a-certain-age is radiance.
Radiant pretty much sums up how we want to look (and feel).
So here’s a little dose of glow to add to your makeup routine: the just-launched, SOS Radiance Primer by Clarins (30ml). It blurs imperfections, brightens the complexion, and catches the light—the very definition of radiance!
Made with organic sea lily extract, the light-textured formula combines both skincare and cosmetic benefits: it hydrates for up to 24 hours,balances uneven skin tone and texture, primes the skin for make-up, extends the wear time of your foundation, and is formulated with an anti-pollution complex to protect from environmental damage.
In a convenient, travel-friendly tube
with a mess-free pump dispenser. Thank you, Clarins.
00 Universal Light is a shimmering-white formula that delicately adds an immediate lift and healthy finish to the skin. For a general skin brightening boost.
Top Tip: Focus the application on the high points of your face for an enhanced luminous look.
The Clarins SOS Primer collection targets:
- Dark Spots
- Sallow Complexion
Some days I can check more of these boxes than others, but everyday, I want to look radiant.
I’ve generally been applying the Radiance SOS Primer to my entire face, adding a touch of concealer here and there, and skipping foundation entirely. But you can wear the primers however you like: under foundation, mixed into your foundation, or if you have a few skin concerns, you can use use them together for a customised face cocktail.
Now that SOS has come to the rescue for the face, I’m practising exuding radiance.
But that’s an inside job.
