With so many makeup brands and beauty products now available, it can be really difficult to know which ones to trial and use on your face. South.Point have a large variety of retail stores that stock a great range of makeup and beauty products. Take a look at 5 of the best makeup finds that we have sourced below, which we think you need to try this season! Priceline: Napoleon Perdis Radiance Boosting Primer This is the ultimate glow-giving base for foundation. The Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Radiance-Boosting Primer available at Priceline, can be applied either before or after your base to impart a beautiful radiance that lifts and flatters the face. The paraben free ingredients will keep your skin hydrated, and also help reflect the light and get your glow on. This particular primer suits all skin types, and you only need to use a tiny drop each time to get great results! To use: Cleanse and moisturise your face. Squirt a pea sized amount of the primer onto your fingers, and spread across your face. Use gentle, circular motions to blend it outwards. Allow the primer to dry completely before applying foundation. Kmart: Moisturising Clay Mask with Kaolin & Hibiscus On a cold evening, run yourself a warm bath and use the Kmart Moisturising Clay Mask with Kaolin & Hibiscus to moisturise and nourish your dry and tired skin. This clay mask, containing hibiscus extract will add natural glow to your face and will leave your skin feeling super moisturised! Both paraben and MIT free, this is a fantastic and affordable mask. To use: Cleanse your face and pat dry. Gently apply the mask onto your face and leave on for 10-15 minutes (avoid lip and eye area). Rinse off, and then apply your favourite moisturiser over the top to lock in the moisture! Big W: Nude by Nature Natural Mineral Cover  A great alternative to traditional foundation types, the Nude by Nature Natural Mineral Cover available at Big W is a feather-light SPF 15 Natural Mineral Cover formula. It's buildable from a sheer to medium coverage and adapts naturally to skin tones to even out complexion, cover redness and pigmentation, and conceal enlarged pores. The powder foundation is composed of performing active natural ingredients including Jojoba Esters to nourish the skin, and Kaolin Clay for a radiant flawless complexion. To use: Prepare your skin by cleansing, moisturising and applying a primer. Load up your foundation blush with mineral foundation. You will need less powder than you expect as a little goes a long way. Buff the mineral foundation into your skin and apply in a light, circular motion. Target: e.l.f Baked Highlighter Create a radiant glow with this e.l.f Baked Highlighter, available at Target. This is an illuminating powder that highlights the skin with a sheer wash of shimmering color. Infused with Vitamin E, Jojoba, Sunflower, Apricot and Grape to nourish and hydrate the skin, the long-lasting baked shimmering color can be applied wet for a vibrant effect or dry for sheer pigmentation. To use: Choose the right colour for you. Choose a bronzer a couple shades darker than your natural skin tone. Apply bronzer along the hollows of your cheeks (the best way to find the right spot for application is to make “fish lips"). Blend into your skin! Coles: Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express Smokey Black Mascara  Mastering the smoky eye look has never been easier with the Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express Mascara, available at Coles. The black kohl pigments guarantee lashes with an intensely matte, black finish, and the collagen-enriched formula plumps lashes with up to 9X more volume. The mega brush loads lashes with big bold volume in one coat To use: Sweep the brush from the root to tip of lashes. Use the narrow tip to easily reach the tiniest lashes. Tip: Do not let mascara dry in between coats, and sweep brush upwards from root to tip to add volume to each lash. So, what have you got your eye on? Sometimes it's important to trial and test a few different products to see what works best for you and your skin type! All of these products are available from retailers at South.Point.
