If you are in a massive rush in the morning (who isn’t) follow these 10 easy steps for a dewy day look – great for all ages from young teens to wise old birds: :
TINTED MOISTURISER: Where you need it, starting at the centre of the face. I like: Bobbi Brown SPF15 Tinted Moisturiser – good for normal to dry skin
CONCEALER: Under the eyes as well as the inner corners of the eyes. I like: Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage.
BROWS: Filled in, if needed. I like: MAC Brow Pencil – either Fling or Lingering work on just about everyone.
CREAM EYE SHADOW: Applied all over, up to brow bone in a shade close to your skin colour. I like: MAC Paints come in a range of beautiful neutrals to brighten the eyes while not really reading as ‘eyeshadow’.
EYELINER: Get right into the lashes, smudge with a finger, cotton bud or brush if you want a soft look. I like: Maybelline Eyeshadow Gel Liner, the brown is great and the brush it comes with is excellent.
CURL LASHES : I like: Shu Uemura, – it should be made illegal to miss this step out!
MASCARA : l like: Max Factor False Lash Effect Fusion Mascara – I find it thickens, lengthens and keeps the curl.
CREAM BLUSHER: All over the cheek area and blend up to the temples, in a sort of curved tear drop shape. I like: Stila Convertible Color as it is dewy. Don’t be put off by the bold colours they are sheer once blended on the face
POWDER: The T zone. I like: MAC Blot powder pressed
(TINTED) LIP BALM: If transparent, smudge v. slightly onto the cupids bow which gives the appearance of a fuller top lip. I like: Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips
