We have put together a list of the Top Beauty Products recommended by our team as well as our Top Hair and Make Up Artists. These items are must haves for all women and especially brides.
Recommended by Niki from Top 10 Team – Drops of Light Brightening Serum from The Body Shop. A very lightweight serum that absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving it velvety soft and shine free. Clinically proven to reduce the number and intensity of dark spots.
Recommended by Helga Strydom – Glamglow GRAVITYMUD™ is the social sensation that everyone has been talking about. An Out of This World Innovative Peel Off Mask Treatment that instantly leaves skin feeling firmer and more lifted.
Recommended by Niki from Top 10 Team – AP24 Teeth Whitening Toothpaste from Nu Skin. The easiest way to obtain and keep your teeth white. This toothpaste has a great flavour and should be used two or three times a day on a dry brush. The results are quickly noticeable!
Recommended by Yolandi du Toit – Benefit POREfessional Pearl Primer is a soft-radiance face primer which instantly minimises the look of pores, locks on makeup and helps skin look bright, boosted and awake.
Recommended by Adri Hugo – One of my favourite products is Osis+ Dust It Mattifying Powder by Schwartzkopf Professional. It creates volume in fine hair as well as texture to better styling ability. On short hair it can be used instead of wax to style with. On long hair it can be dusted on the roots after blow drying to increase volume and hold and for upstyles it helps us professionals create beautiful upstyles. It can be bought at hair salons, mostly salons stocking Schwartzkopf and on some online stores. Easier to just contact your local salons than paying shipping when bought online.
Recommended by Madri from Top 10 Team – Decléor’s Aromessence Essential Oil-Serums and Balms are my ultimate every day skin treatments. 100% natural, exquisitely fragranced, “liquid gold”! They moisturise, hydrate, smooth and brings radiance and refinement to your complexion. Its non-greasy and non-sticky texture is rapidly absorbed and leaves the skin soft and supple. Its scent invigorates the skin and the mind. Choose the one that suits your skin type. The oils are ideal to apply in the morning and the balms are normally used as a night cream.
Recommended by Evelyn Francis – MAC Pro Longwear Concealer is a fluid concealer that provides full matte coverage for up to 15 hours.
Recommended by Nicole Amory – Dior Forever Glow Foundation extends its high perfection, long-wearing foundation formula to offer a 24h radiant finish. The complexion appears flawless and even and the pores tightened. This enveloping fluid foundation does not just instantly embellish the skin: it improves its beauty day after day with a formula enriched in meticulously selected skincare ingredients to reveal the skin’s full sensuality. You will need to visit your local Edgars store to buy this in South Africa.
Recommended by Corle Barnard – Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream. I am all about that healthy glowy bridal skin, and this is a stable in my kit. It is a very quick pick me up for any skin type that is dehydrated and dull looking. Charlotte’s iconic Magic Cream is enriched with Hyaluronic Acid, Bio Nymph Peptides and Floral Oils to flood the skin with moisture and create a dewy, healthy-looking complexion, leaving the skin perfectly prepped for a flawless makeup application.
Recommended by Cecilia Fourie – Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base is a primer plus moisturisation for smooth makeup application (it’s the best of both worlds). Rich in feel, but never greasy, this advanced oil-free face formula, with Shea Butter, instantly hydrates, softens and cushions skin.
Recommended By LA Make Up Artistry – With good skin preparation, Urban Decay Cosmetics All Nighter Setting Spray is all you would need to secure your look last the entire day.
