If you’re just beginning to put together your luxury beauty collection, then here is a list of the basics that will help you get subtle, healthy glowing skin that all women dream of.

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair or Idealist

Those under the age of 25 should use Idealist and if you’re older use Advanced Night Repair {ANR}. Idealist keeps rosacea-prone skin extremely calm and also makes pores look smaller. This can also be used as a base serum but only use this till you’re 25 years old, then switch to ANR which will make your skin look plump, radiant and moisturised overnight. ANR should only be used at night but you can also apply this as a spot treatment because it helps reduce marks.

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Powder

If there’s just one thing you need to buy in luxurious makeup, invest in a good quality face powder for a finished look. No one makes better powders than Chanel. Just one stroke of Chanel Les Beiges powder will transform your skin into looking clearer and will reduce pores, even if you’re not wearing any foundation or concealer underneath. The best part is that Chanel powders come with a brush and not a puff, which means that your application will never be cake-y.

Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick

Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick can be used as a concealer under the eyes, as foundation and it can also be used to conceal spots. This is the one and only foundation that you need. Just remember to rub it between your fingers to make it warm and thin before applying it as under eye concealer or foundation. Use it thick to conceal pigmentation or spots.

Kiehl’s Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate

This serum contains 10% vitamin C, which adds glow, makes your skin feel super soft and really does appear to reduce wrinkles. It smells a little metallic, but that’s a good thing because all genuinely effective vitamin C serums have such a smell.

Benefit Sun Beam

This is the best highlighter ever for Indian skin tones. We’re fans of Benefit Sun Beam as it gives the skin a natural glow.

Lancôme Le Crayon Sourcils

This wonderful brow pencil is ideal for Indian colouring because of the colour {Brun}. It looks natural, is easy to use and the finish is so soft that you can’t go wrong with it.

Dior 5 Colour Eyeshadow Palette

The texture of Dior eye shadows is extremely buttery, making them glide onto your lids. They last long without creasing and can be made to look understated or intense depending on whether you use them wet or dry, sheer or layered.

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Mascara

Curls, lengthens, volumises, and doesn’t smudge even the tiniest bit. Plus, it comes off with warm water and never makes your lashes fall.

Clinique Turaround Overnight Revitalizing Moisturiser

The. Best. Night. Cream. Ever. It gently resurfaces your skin at night so when you wake up your pores look tighter, complexion is clearer, and you look more radiant.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Fiery

We don’t know why people don’t talk about this colour as it’s the most glamorous red lipstick. Plus, it looks good on each and every skin tone {yes, we’ve tried it on different people} and lasts without flaking.

YSL Opium

Stick to the classic fragrances like spices, soap and sandalwood, which smell luxurious and sophisticated. We love the fragrance of YSL Opium and just a few sprays of this perfume will even make your body spray smell glamorous.
