Our Guide To Cool Girl Beauty

Cool girl beauty is exactly what you think it is – an effortless beauty lifestyle consisting of “barely there” make-up looks, coupled with uncomplicated skincare regimens and tips that make you look refreshed at all times. CGB celebrates pores, fine lines, lightweight textures and multi-tasking products. She loves coming up with her own methods of treating bothered skin and doesn’t fall into the trap of any beauty fad.

Here’s what you’ll find in the cool girl beauty stash:

Lip oil

As you know, the Edgars Beauty Hub team loves a lip oil. They add nourishment to the lips without drying them out and come with a range of delicious scents. You’ll always find a tube in a cool girl’s bag so she can touch up her lips before a meeting, while she’s on a flight or during a lecture. If you’re looking for high shine on the lips, swap your lip balm for a glossy lip oil instead.

Scented hair mist

The secret to a cool girl’s hair smelling gorgeous 24/7? A fragranced hair mist. We often overlook our hair when applying fragrance and we shouldn’t because gorgeous-smelling locks make a statement. Try spritzing your scent onto the bristles of your hair brush and then combing your hair. This helps to evenly distribute the fragrance.

Eye masks

Fresh-looking eyes are a must, always. These Elemis Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks come in a box of six. They contain marine actives and hyaluronic acid, which help to hydrate, smooth and tighten the eyes in 20 minutes. If your eyes need a pick-me-up, try one of these. They’re magical.

Concealer is one of the most versatile make-up products. Cool girl beauty means opting for a concealer rather than a foundation to cover up any blemishes or uneven skin tone. It saves time when getting ready and eliminates a lot of unnecessary product steps. If you choose a concealer as your foundation, remember to colour match the product to your exact skin tone. When a concealer is used with a foundation, we recommend going one to two shades lighter to hide dark circles, redness or to lighten up the under-eye area.

Cream blush

Powder blush has taken a back seat this year with liquid and cream blush products fast becoming make-up faves. Make a small dot with the applicator wand onto the apples of your cheeks and blend into your foundation with a brush. Remember, the blush is quite pigmented, so you only need a small drop on each cheek. This will give your face a naturally fresh glow.

Neutral nail polish

Cool girl beauty celebrates the whole clean girl aesthetic. Nudes, light pinks, whites and neutrals are a must on the nails to create a polished, subtle look. Keep your nails at a short, practical length and pair them with a long-lasting colour. Don’t forget to seal it with a top coat.

Cool girl beauty is all for a clean scent, such as Clinique’s Happy EDP. This fresh, citrusy fragrance lives up to its name with its joyful note line-up: think bergamot, red ruby grapefruit, Hawaiian wedding flower and spring mimosa. Keep your fragrance collection minimal and stick to one in particular to make it your signature scent.
