As Head of Buying at Space NK, Sarah curates a peerless selection of beauty brands, including those in this year's Space NKAdvent Calendar.Along with creating one of this year'sbest beauty advent calendars, Sarah is responsible for bringing countless products into our lives. Essentially, name a cool new make-up primer, the best mascara or cult brand in your skincare routine and Sarah may well be the woman who put it there.
With the launch of the 2020 Space NK Advent Calendar I couldn’t resist the chance to pick her brains on the very best products inside. These buys aren’t just for Christmas, the full sized versions are a worthy investment at any time of year.
Although, let’s be honest - every product is just a bit more lovable as abeauty mini, isn’t it?
Sarah Meadows Space NK Advent Calendar Top 5
"When my skin is feeling dry and sensitive during the colder months, I swear by The Rich Cream. It’s an all-in-one that tackles dehydration, fine lines, and dullness – and feels so luxurious to use."
"This candle is my go-to for creating a festive ambiance. First comes fresh pine trees, then the smell of plum pudding and lastly the comforting aroma of a warming log fire. It looks beautiful on my mantlepiece and makes me feel totally ready for Christmas!"
"One of my absolute favourite bronzers and a staple in my makeup bag all year round. I love a sun-kissed glow – and in these colder months Nars Laguna is probably the closest I’m going to get!"
"A top pick of mine because of its uplifting bergamot scent, and because it doubles up as a hand wash and shower gel. It’s also a juicy full size (250ml) in the advent calendar!"
"To counteract the effects of the cold weather and inevitable mulled wine, I put this hydrating overnight mask on before bed and let the magic happen while I sleep. It makes my skin soft, plump and glowing."
As woman&home's Beauty Channel Editor, Fiona Mckim has tried more beauty products than she’s had hot dinners and nothing makes her happier than raving about a brilliant find on womanandhome.com or her instagram grid (@fionamckim if you like hair experiments and cute shih-tzus). Fiona joined woman&home as Assistant Beauty Editor back in 2013, working under industry legend Jo GB, who taught her everything she needed to know (clue: learn about ingredients and employ extreme cynicism).
