Beautiful makeup and skincare which perfects and enhances our skin can make us feel confident and ready to take on the world.
To celebrate International Women's Day on the 8th of March, we asked our Beauty Set which beauty products make them feel confident, beautiful and powerful.

'The product that empowers me is the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. I always have 100% faith it’s going to do what I need it to, so I don’t have to worry about how my makeup is going to look later in the day or evening. I can just focus on having the best day possible… whether that’s a good day at work, socialising with friends, anything! It leaves me knowing I’m going to feel and look my best during the moments that matter.’

‘My empowering product of choice has to be the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water for Delicate Skin and Eyes. As much as I love to change my appearance and play with all sorts of amazing makeup products, there is nothing more empowering than taking it all off. This product helps me cleanse and embrace the skin I was born in and be unapologetically me.’
Mala and Vikki, @VeryMakeupMad
‘We both love radiant glowing skin so love using highlighter pens to brighten and add luminosity to our complexions. We love both the iconic YSL Touche Éclat and the Estée Lauder Double Wear Brush-On Glow BB Highlighter. These two wonder wands empower us; because makeup should enhance your natural beauty.’

‘As women, we endure so much and it takes a toll on our skin. Instead of piling on loads of makeup to cover my flaws, I treat my problem areas. My go-to after a long, tiring week is the GLAMGLOW Supermud Clearing Treatment Mask. Whether used as a spot treatment or a full-face mask, it removes impurities and minimises blemishes and at the same time tightens the skin, allowing for a renewed radiant complexion to shine through. The moment we realise that skin is the best foundation is the moment we reveal our full potential and explore endless possibilities.’
Jamie Rockers, @beautyrocksblog
‘My empowering product of choice is lipstick. I love the transformational power of a lipstick and the fact that it can brighten and lift the whole face. A punchy pink or a red lipstick to me equals confidence and there is nothing more empowering than confidence. When you start believing in yourself, magic happens. And it can all start with a little tube of lipstick. My all-time favourite is MAC Ruby Woo.'

‘No matter how bad my mood is, how bad my hair looks or day seems, Yves Saint Laurent Tatouage Couture Lipstick in Shade 1 fixes it all. A bold red lip makes me feel like I can take on the world.’
