Create the perfect base for all those close-ups this party season. Who needs filters, anyway?
USE: a seamless primer. Apply YSL Touche Éclat Blur Primer, £29.50/ 2,950 points (30ml), over moisturiser and under your base. Blend out to ears and down to your neck, for dewy skin.
USE: a lightweight tint. Tinted moisturiser is great for younger skin, as it lets a natural glow show through. Try No7 City Light Tinted Moisturiser Boots Exclusive £12/1,200 points (30ml).
USE: a blend-and-go BB cream. Switch a weighty foundation for a BB cream – it blurs uneven patches without looking cakey. Try La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur, £16.50/1,650 points (30ml).
NO TOUCH-UPS NECESSARY
USE: an oil-free foundation. Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation, £29/2,900 points (30ml), was created to survive a 15-hour shoot, and helps keep skin shine-free.
Use: a flat-topped brush. Bold Metals Collection By Real Techniques 301 Flat Contour £22/2,200 points. Dab foundation on the back of your hand, smooth the brush over, then apply to your face in a circular motion.
USE: a flattering highlighter. Shine in the right places by blending Benefit Watt’s Up!, £24.50/2,450 points, on the highest points of cheeks, down the bridge of your nose, on your cupid’s bow and in the centre of your eyelids.
USE: a soft-focus colour corrector. Applying concealer over a base and primer can look patchy, so skip a layer and hide flaws with Barry M Flawless Colour Correcting Primer, £5.99/599 points (30ml), under your foundation.
