#1 Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour Mariniere SPF15/PA++
$84 each, available from June 5 at all Chanel Fragrance & Beauty stores and counters.
Chanel’s Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour compacts are making a comeback this June, and will be available in two shades. Sweep the lavender-beige combination at the high points of your cheekbones to create definition and enhance your skin’s natural radiance. If you prefer more of a beachy, sculpted glow a la Kim Kardashian, then opt for shade N02.
#2 Bobbi Brown Face & Body Bronzing Duo
$76 each, available at all Bobbi Brown stores and counters
Bobbi Brown’s Face & Body Bronzing Duos are the ones we’ll be taking on a beach holiday. These come in two colour combos – a pink-based palette and an orange-based one – that can flatter most skin tones and give it a natural tanned look. But don’t limit the usage of these compacts to the face – try the collarbones, too. (Especially if you’re sporting a bandeau bikini!)
#3 Tom Ford Bronzing Powder, Gold Dust
$102 and $160 for the small and large sized compacts, available at the Tom Ford Beauty counter in Tangs Orchard.
Makeup junkies should be very familiar with this one – Tom Ford Beauty’s Bronzing Powder. Gold Dust, as its name suggests, has a slight shimmer to it, but it’s only detectable up close. If you’re averse to the thought of any form of sparkle however, try the shade Terra, which is a matte bronzer that you can use for contouring, too. Fans will be glad to know that the powders will be available in a smaller sized compact for a limited time.
#4 Diorskin Nude Air Healthy Glow Compact Powder
$88, available at all Dior Beauty stores and counters.
Unlike the others on this list, the Diorskin Nude Air Healthy Glow Compact Powder is meant to be used all over the face, so you can use this to set your makeup. It gives a sheer matte finish that isn’t too flat.
#5 M.A.C Wash and Dry High-Light Powder
$58, available at all M.A.C stores from June
M.A.C’s Wash and Dry High-Light Powder is a versatile highlighter that allows you to customise how peachy or golden-toned you want your “glow” to be. Just use different sections in the compact, or swirl all the colours together for an easy coral flush.
