1. Sakura blush
Cherry blossom perfection

The sakura-inspired palette consists of pastel hues that give you a fresh and clean look. Look beautiful and delicate, like a cherry blossom.
$350, Guerlain;


2. Sheer red lipstick
Scarlet bombshell

Every good girl needs to show off her bad side and what better way than with a stick of luscious red lipstick? The Giorgio Armani collection has the perfect shade for a spicy party.
$260, Giorgio Armani;


3. Illuminating powder

Pink shimmer
Add a touch of pink sparkle to brighten up your skin. A simple swish of magic. Apply sparingly for a natural look.
$320, Estée Lauder;


4. Golden gloss
The Midas touch

Live your life like it's golden with a few drips of velvety gloss that's been touched by Midas. If you go gold, pair with some black eye shadow for a glamorous look.
$190, Shu Uemura;



5. High definition corrector
Clear and simple

We can't always look flawless, so it's a good idea to carry a concealer to hide those imperfections.
$300, Guerlain;



6. Polishing brush
Even out

A quality polishing brush is essential and with Becca's fine bristles, your cheeks look smooth and even. Take the brush and use it as a finishing touch to even things out.
$650, Becca,



7. Illuminating pearl powder
Seraphim sublime

Give your face an angelic complexion by brightening dull areas up with fresh pinks and purples. The silver pearls create more radiant-looking skin. Simply take the puff applicator and gently pat around the face.
$440, Guerlain;



8. SPF 15 foundation
Flawless base

Before applying any colour, you need a good foundation to smooth out the skin as well creating a base for powdery pigments. Mac's SPF 15 foundation not only provides protection from damaging UVA and UVB rays, it's also long-lasting and light.
$340, Mac;



9. Luxe eye palette
Eye popper

Make those peepers really pop with a silvery gleam from Bobbi Brown's luxe eye palette. Blend your own combination to achieve a rich and captivating tone.
$520, Bobbi Brown;


10. Blender brush
Blending in

Use the Bobbi Brown blender brush to combine the desired colour palette and apply the first layer of powder.
$450, Bobbi Brown;


11. Supreme shine lipstick
Orange radiance

Hopefully the sun will come out soon, but if it doesn't, add a bit of that orange glow to your lips. It may help perk up some dampened spirits.
$210, Shu Uemura;
