The Beauty Style Team – Aidan Corcoran, Elena Costello and Amy Connolly – are Brown Thomas’ personal shoppers for all things beauty and they talk us through the perfect foundations trending at beauty counters right now! 


Aidan Corcoran of the Beauty Style Team had the amazing opportunity to go backstage with M.A.C at London Fashion week recently. The beauty focus this season was the reinvention of skin. Seamless textures were created on the skin using the iconic M.A.C Face and Body Foundation, paired with M.A.C Cream Colour Bases on the cheekbones and cupid’s bow, resulting in a gorgeous luminous glow. Backstage saw the use of everyone’s make-up bag staple, the M.A.C Studio Fix Foundation, as well as the recently added M.A.C Studio Fix Concealer which is extremely lightweight with soft focus as well as a buildable coverage which is perfect for concealing extra blemishes. Although skin is in, we can’t talk about M.A.C without mentioning their newest innovation – the Powder Kiss Lipsticks. They feel creamy and luxurious but with all of the amazing colour payoff M.A.C is famous for, a lipstick everyone needs to try.

With a brightening technology in its formula, we love NARS Sheer Glow Foundation all year round as it’s super hydrating on the skin, is alcohol and paraben-free, and has a beautiful lightweight consistency. It is amazing for everyday wear but also the perfect product to build on for evening wear. Another spring must-have is the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. With a hydrating, lightweight texture it blends evenly on the skin’s surface while reflecting the light back out beautifully from the skin. It is also ideal for dark circles or imperfections on the skin. This season NARS has introduced the amazing new Exposed Cheek Palette. The palette comprises of six beautiful shades that are infused with the NARS colour clarity complex which is designed to give vibrant and buildable colour. This gorgeous palette can also be used on the eye for a wash of colour or softly swept over your cheeks.
