Podcast: Are beauty supplements worth it?

Plus: How to layer skin care & the lip colour to wear this summer

Editor / February 12 2020

The world of beauty powders and supplements is growing every day – but are they worth the effort or just another gimmick? In this episode we chat about how we think they help and the ones that are more than just hype.

Also in this ep: We have the inside scoop from YSL’s Director of Artistry, Ross Andrewartha, on the must-have lip colour for summer (and why it suits everyone), and we help you navigate how to layer multiple skin care products.

And, Carli managed to condense her travel makeup kit and reveals the secret is all in finding the right palette.
