Just Landed | Natasha Denona

By Rose-Ann Cullen, 16th June 2016

Natasha Denona has arrived at Beauty Bay! Skin-mimicking formulas, insanely good pigmentation and the glowiest of finishes; this is the must-have makeup collection for all beauty lovers.  By way of introduction to the range, we’ve done all the trying-and-testing for you and have rounded up our favourites – from the ultimate dewy-skin maker to the tool you never knew you needed, but won’t know how you lived without! 

All Over Glow Face & Body Shimmer Powder

“I try every glow-inducing product that comes my way – and there are many – but a few weeks ago people started telling me that my skin looked amazing and particularly radiant. I haven’t changed anything in my skincare routine, and I’m certainly not drinking enough water or getting enough sleep. The only difference is that I’m using this face and body shimmer that sweeps on like a powder but dries down quickly to a dewy cream finish. It’s a slightly braver choice than anything I’d usually use to warm up my complexion, it doesn’t feel like I have anything on my face, and my skin looks as fresh as if I drink eight glasses of water a day and get a full eight hours sleep (even though I don’t). I like the way it lights up my face without coating it in chunky pieces of glitter and shimmer. In fact, it’s the most believable looking glow I’ve ever seen and without it I would be so pale, wan, and very tired looking.” – Grace

Lip Colour Palette

“It’s safe to say that Natasha Denona is a woman who really gets lipstick. Something about these lip colours works secretly to brighten your face and the creamy formula is delightfully comforting, they coat your lips with long-wearing colour without feeling heavy. Normally I wouldn’t buy a lip palette – I much prefer bullets, but this palette accompanied me on a recent trip to London and managed to convert me in the process. Sleek and lightweight, not only did I practically have an entire colour wheel of lip shades in my handbag, but multiple formulas (the palette contains sparkle, shine, and matte) and also a big mirror with which to apply them on the go (no more hunting for a bathroom in between meetings). Plus, lipsticks always look better and last longer when applied with a brush so what’s not to love! My personal favourite is Petal, the dusky pink, which I mix with a little of Warm Plum to amp it up for evening.” Grace

Green Brown 28 Eyeshadow Palette

“I’m a self confessed eyeshadow addict. It has the power to transform my face, defining my eyes against my dark brows and hair, and the endless hues give hours of makeup fun. So when I saw Natasha Denona’s Green Brown eyeshadow palette I absolutely had to have it. It has a mesmerising range of glistening emerald, teal, bronze and chocolate shades, each of which have the most exceptionally pigmented formula I’ve come across yet. If you think they look great in the pan, just wait until you’ve swatched them: silky smooth and giving minimal fallout, they blend effortlessly onto the skin for a flawless look every time. I’m currently obsessing over a warm crease (Sand Storm and Shell) with a pop of Bottle Green and a flash of True Gold.” Rose-Ann

Lash Guard

“Is there anything more irritating than perfecting an absolutely outstanding cut-crease eye look, only to catch your lid with your mascara wand, leaving a blob of black pigment just in the most obvious place? Thanks to Denona’s Lash Guard, that scenario is but a distant memory for me. This unassuming, small white tool is my new favourite addition to my makeup tool kit. Placed behind lashes, you can sweep on your lash enhancer as thoroughly as needed, allowing it to catch all the excess colour. A cleverly curved design sits comfortably against the contours of the eye, whilst the ridged pattern helps to separate lashes as you apply masara, too, fanning them out and enhancing curl.” Rose-Ann

Face Glow Cream Shimmer 01 Light

“I’m a total sucker for really healthy, glossy, gorgeous skin; the type of skin that tends to come only by way of a dedicated skincare routine, clean diet, regular facials and/ or great genes. So when a product comes along that somehow manages to mimic this level of lit-from-within glowiness, without looking fake or forced, I’m all in.  Which is why, since first swipe, this whipped-cream champagne highlighter has become a mainstay in both my makeup bag, and my face. Totally fool-proof thanks to the super-sheer texture –  slick it straight from the stick and blend, or daub lightly onto the face with fingertips – it infuses skin with a hyper-natural iridescent gleam that doesn’t sparkle, shine or shimmer, but really truly glows. Like a permanent Snapchat-selfie filter.  By day I’ve been buffing it over cheekbones and setting with a light dusting of bronzer, and by night, I amp up the wattage by tapping it onto the highpoints of my face.” – Jourdana

Eye Light Highlighting Concealer

“Not the most glamorous of products, I’d be inclined to agree. But you simply shouldn’t underestimate the power of a good under-eye concealer – brightening the eyes, awakening the face, masking any tell-tale signs of tiredness. And yet, I struggle to find one do-it-all product; the full-coverage concealers required to camouflage tend to cake and crease whilst anything that adds enough reflective radiance to brighten does little to conceal darkness or discolouration. And yet, somehow, Natasha Denona has managed to marry the two with this silicone-tipped click-pen concealer. The perfect balance between a pure pigment and an illuminating highlighter, the gossamer light cream dries down to a velvety and flawless finish, smoothing out skin, covertly concealing darkness and adding enough luminosity to lift shadows.” – Jourdana
