Make-Up Hall of Fame - Touche Eclat
Over the last couple of weeks & for the next few months we have been doing our very own 'Make-Up Hall of Fame', for all those fantastic products & tools that keep us looking at our best, it will consist of the true tried & tested items that come up trumps every time proving themselves to be timeless classics that no beauty junkie should be without! Any suggestions on what you think & any products you feel should definitely be put forward let us know - firstname.lastname@example.org
Next in is YSL's Touche Eclat Radiant Touch (£22.50), a world famous classic that revolutionised our complexions, just about every brand has created their own version from Clinique to even Lidl's (!!), of course the original always tops the polls when comparing concealers.
It's light reflecting particles banish dark circles under the eyes as well as any other shadowed areas, such as the sides of your nose to the hollow of your chin & the contours of he lips, instantly brightening the areas creating a flawless complexion!
For best results, blend over your foundation, apply with the pen & then softly blend out with your finger tips.
Also as make-up for men is creating a media frenzy with most cosmetic firms launching a new range designed for the male market, YSL have also created Touche Eclat for Men. A product that is sure to be popular, a light concealer that can hide a multitude of sins....and who better to launch the product at Selfridges than BB9 man make-up hero Stuart Pilkington. Stuart himself said - “Since leaving the Big Brother house, I’ve become increasingly self-aware of my daily appearance as I start to get recognised when I’m out on the street. I was sent a Touche Éclat For Men this week and have already started using it as a concealer under my eyes – its magic, I love it., it hides the dark circles under my eyes, especially before I go to my nans’ for lunch to avoid interrogation on the antics of the night before!”
YSL themselves say that “We have developed YSL Touche Éclat For Men specifically for men to help encourage men to use cosmetics as a skin enhancer, rather than to create a full makeup look.” Looks as though this could be a product to really take off, so no more excuses to be stealing from our make-up bags!
