Buff Up: Best Body Makeup Products

As any makeup artist will tell you, great makeup goes way beyond the face. When you’re working with models backstage at fashion week, you have to make sure the look is perfect from head to toe. So, if you want to replicate some of the most flawless looks, try touching up from the shoulders down with some of these body makeup products…

Whether it’s perfect legs, flawless arms, a bronzed body or all of the above that will take your look to the next level, there’s nothing like taking good care of your body and skin to achieve the look you want. Of course, you should be eating the right foods (check out Eat Beautiful for ideas), drinking plenty of water and staying active to look and feel body beautiful, but there are little ways you can make sure your body is as flawless as your face. From bronzing mists to body foundations, here are a few of the best body makeup products to try at home…

Best Body Makeup Products


Kevyn Aucoin The Glass Glow Face and Body Illuminator

There’s nothing that can pep up your complexion quite like an illuminated glow, and this is just as true for your body as your face. Available in three tones, this Kevyn Aucoin illuminator will add subtle glowing highlights wherever it’s added.

Dermablend Leg & Body Makeup

If it’s full coverage you’re looking for, Dermablend’s body makeup is high pigment enough to cover scars, pigmentation, veins and even tattoos.

MAC Studio Face & Body Foundation

A favourite with makeup artists and a firm fixture backstage, this lightweight, buildable foundation can be used anywhere on the body to touch up skin, even tone and mask imperfections.

Charlotte Tilbury Supermodel Body

If it’s bronzed, glowing, supermodel skin you seek, Charlotte Tilbury’s body highlighter is well worth trying. It’s perfect for a day at the beach (especially if you’re more about bikini lounging than watersports). Check out my guide to the bronze beauty trend if you want to be a bronzed goddess this season.

By Terry Tea to Tan Face and Body

With natural active cherry and revitalising tea tree extracts, this self-tanning spray is rich in antioxidants and provides a subtle, all-over sun-kissed radiance. This is perfect for applying to bare shoulders or down the front of legs for a natural finish.
