MAKEUP:

Fashion Magazine - - Index - Mary Bru­ton

CLEAN­LI­NESS IS NEXT TO LOVE­LI­NESS Cleanse your skin at night. In­vest in a good toner such as Dr Hauschka’s Rose­wa­ter Fa­cial Toner. FAKE TAN FALSE­HOODS It takes a good hour to cor­rectly ap­ply and let fake tan dry prop­erly. If you don’t have this amount of time to spare, cover up in­stead of mak­ing a dog’s din­ner of the ap­pli­ca­tion. If you want a darker shade, ap­ply a sec­ond coat in­stead of choos­ing a re­ally tar-coloured tan. Don’t ap­ply your fake tan in the morn­ing. The stink will of­fend ev­ery­one else in your work­place. St Tropez prod­ucts will give your skin a re­ally nat­u­ral colour.

In con­trast, if you have pale skin, you need to come to terms with that fact and aim to glow in sum­mer. BRUSH UP ON YOUR REGIME Body brush­ing, which jump­starts the lymph sys­tem in the morn­ing, also ex­fo­li­ates and in­vig­o­rates and dis­penses with the need for ex­pen­sive ex­fo­lia­tors and other ex­pen­sive treat­ments. ARCH EN­E­MIES Eye­brows frame the face and need at­ten­tion but avoid the ten­dency to over­pluck. Those of you fair of face might need a lit­tle ex­tra help to cre­ate a stronger line. Tint­ing brows is too se­vere. Use a shadow to cre­ate light and shade. ADD WA­TER In­vest in a mois­turiser that works for your skin type. Ab­so­lutely in­sist on get­ting a sam­ple. You can’t know how a mois­turiser works un­til you’ve tried it on clean skin over sev­eral con­sec­u­tive days. LUS­CIOUS LIPS Lip­sticked lips need to be well mois­turised to look good. Bring your own lip­brush or cot­ton buds to try a lip­stick out be­fore you buy. You need to de­ter­mine how creamy it is or isn’t. IM­PROVE YOUR SKILLSET Learn how to prop­erly ap­ply your make-up. Know when to stop. Over­do­ing your make-up shows a lack of self-con­fi­dence.
