Tip 1 – Prepare the skin

“Looking glam for me starts with well-prepared skin and creating a flawless base, so avoid heavy moisturisers as make-up will slide. Always apply primers as this will help avoid migration of products into lines and wrinkles.”

Tip 2 – Get flawless skin super quick

“Pay particular attention to dark circles under the eye and the inner corners near the nose. Peach tones work best on light to medium skin, orange tones for darker skin and pink for olive-toned skin. “Designed with the under eye area in mind, this lightweight concealer will make dark circles diminish and create flawless skin.” 

Tip 3 – It’s party season! Add a pop of colour

“Applying a sweep of lipstick in a bright cherry or poppy red is a speedy way to add a touch of glamour. Enhance your best features and practise, applying or creating your look before the actual day or night out.”
