Beauty Guide: Top Brightening Cleansers

As the weather begins to draw in, it's not only your style which you'll need to update but you'll also need some help with your beauty regime.  Below you will find my top picks for a Brightening Cleanser.

1. SHU UEMURA Brightening Cleansing Oil


Shu Uemura was a brand created by Mr. Uemura.  Uemura worked as a Make-up Artist in 1950's Hollywood and gained make-up secrets during that time to create a line of powerful make-up and skin products. The secret to this cleansing oil is it's effects on brightening and smoothing the skin as well as it's power to remove waterproof mascara and other long lasting make-up products.  



SHU UEMURA Brightening Cleansing Oil £30 from Space.NK
This product left my skin feeling a lot clearer and smoother and worked well on removing waterproof based products. I'd highly recommend it as not only is it an all round good cleanser for removing make-up but it's brightening properties leave your skin feeling more luminous and smoother. 


2. CHANEL LE BLANC Fresh Brightening Foam Cleanser 


The LE BLANC range of products from Chanel use the ancient Eastern philosophy coupled with Western Science to create an advanced line of skin brightening products. More specifically the Fresh Brightening Foam Cleanser uses an advanced pearl protein and licorice extracts to give the skin renewed softness and luminosity.



CHANEL LE BLANC Fresh Brightening Foam Cleanser £38.36 from Nordstrom
After using this product for only a couple of days I noticed the most difference when compared with numerous products on the market. My skin almost immediately was left clearer and felt like a blank canvas. However wasn't great for removing waterproof or more longer lasting products. 



3. Bliss triple oxygen instant energising cleansing foam

This is to be used as part of your daily cleansing routine and will leave your skin looking bright and feeling revitalised. Bliss brought this product to the public after being tried and tested in their spa's. More specifically the liquid-to-foam formula is the first to deliver oxygen along with a super-powered form of vitamin C, which will leave your skin feeling hydrated with washing away make-up and impurities. 

Bliss Triple Oxygen Cleansing Foam on Sale at M&S for £19.20 RRP £24

In my opinion comes in cheaper than a lot of brightening cleansers on the market and is great for just brightening and energising the skin, however it's not great for removing waterproof or more longer lasting make-up.

Olsen twins have cast a 65-year-old model for their new Fashion Line

The Olsen twins have cast a 65-year-old model in the latest look book for their high-end fashion line "The Row"


The child stars turned fashion designers have shunned the industry and sent out a clear message that they aim to be a uniquely inspiring look.

Ms Rodin, a cosmetic entrepreneur was delighted to have been selected to model for the twins as she explained. They called me to come in for a go-see and I thought, “Oh my God! A go-see!” I tried on about six outfits. They called me back and said, “We’d love you to do it.”’

A Typical Transeasonal Outfit by River Island

It's that really tricky time of year, where we're both in the current season but looking into the next season also. Compounded with the very tricky British weather it can be an awkward period to pull of something which sets as transeasonal.


You want to look for something that keeps with the Autumnly vibes but also takes you into Winter. 

Below I've selected a few key pieces from River Island

 

 

The fine knitwear jumper is classed as a bright yellow, however it gives of more of a tangerine appearance, which really sets in well for the current and upcoming months.

River Island Bright Yellow High Neck Rib Top £22

The leopard print pencil skirt is so on trend with animal prints still really big for AW13 and beyond.

River Island Brown Leopard Print Scuba Pencil Skirt £20

Complete the look with a black quilted bowler bag

River Island Black Quilted Bowler Bag £40

British Model of the Year Cara Delevingne lights up Paris Fashion Week

She's already been crowned Birtish Fashion Model of the year and after already gracing London Fashion Week, she's working the catwalks in Paris. 

The 21-year-old has been compared with the likes of Kate Moss and working the catwalks for Valentino and Chanel in Paris you can totally understand why. 

Her name? If you've not already heard it is, Cara Delevingne.
