After a December filled with magical nights donning sultry red lipstick and shimmery eyeshadow, January can offer a welcome break for your skin.

 It's the perfect time for paring things back and embracing a daily ritual where less is more. Here, we share our favourite tips for achieving that coveted soft natural makeup look for a fresh start to the new year.

Start With Your Brows

Eyebrows have the power to add so much character and expression to your face, so set aside a moment to give them the attention they deserve. We created our Sculpting Brow Gel to celebrate the individuality that comes with brow shapes and elevate your natural eye makeup look. Like the way in which delicate lingerie can boost your confidence without anyone but you knowing you're wearing it, our brow gel acts as a secret weapon, quietly enhancing your features.

Choose from one of three flattering shades – Light Brown, Dark Brown or Transparent – to find the one that best complements your colouring. For an effortlessly groomed appearance, use the thin tip of the asymmetrical nylon brush to line the bottom edge of your brows. Then sweep the brush upwards along the arch, and go back with the tip to fill in. Thanks to our carefully crafted formulation, lightweight gelling polymers will envelop your brows in a flexible film coating that's water- and rub-resistant for all-day wear.

Open Up The Eyes

The eyes are often the first thing someone notices about a person. For barely there eye makeup combined with a refreshed appearance on those shorter days, we love a single swipe of our Volumising Mascara. The smudge-proof, buildable formula in Rich Brown offers a softer alternative to our classic black for an understated finish.

If you want to add a little more definition to your lashes, just apply a second layer. This innovative lightweight mascara has been formulated to glide on smoothly with every stroke and nourish each individual lash for a result that feels as good as it looks.

A Flush Of Colour

If you want a dewy makeup effect, a hint of colour on your lips and cheeks will give you a lit-from-within glow. A little artistry secret that we adore is using your lipstick as a sensual sheer blush. An opulent choice for this multi-purpose tip is our nourishing Satin Lip Balm in Almond Lips which features a rich, red-brown undertone. This sweet yet nutty hue is full of earthiness that will complement a wide variety of skin tones.

With a light press of tint on the apples of your cheeks using your fingertips, you can achieve instant radiance and noticeable suppleness. Then finish with a kiss of colour to the centre of your lower lip and gently press your lips together. Similar to all of our beauty essentials, this hydrating lip balm has been formulated using clean ingredients such as argan kern oil that's designed to be kind to the planet as well as your skin.
