Rosy Cheeks

They al­ways sig­nal health and youth. We’d rec­om­mend blush­ers in bright pink or apri­cot shades for at­ter­ing colour. These may look very bright in the pan, but ac­tu­ally go on quite sheer. If you have high cheek­bones, makeup artist Larry Yeo sug­gests dust­ing a sheer wash of blusher below the cheek­bones, fo­cus­ing on the area close to the mouth be­neath your cheeks – it’ll give you a pretty just-in-from-the-cold ush.

Illuminate Your Skin

You want a ra­di­ant com­plex­ion, not a shiny one, as it can ap­pear oily in our cli­mate. First, prep with an oil-free mois­turiser to smooth and plump up skin. Then, ap­ply a high­light­ing cream or pow­der just above the cheek­bones and down the length of your nose. This cre­ates the im­pres­sion of a youth­ful, dewy com­plex­ion. You can also ap­ply a ra­di­ance primer on your whole face be­fore foun­da­tion. Makeup artist Larry Yeo says: “Avoid makeup with an overly shiny nish. The less shine there is, the smaller your pores will ap­pear, and you’ll look like you have bet­ter skin.” Pretty Pas­tels for the Eyes

Try lilac, ap­ple green and baby pink as a sheer wash all over the eye­lids. Tip: You can also use them to softly line the lower lash line for an in­stant bright­en­ing ef­fect on the eye area. If you have ne lines, be sure to prep with eye cream or primer rst.

De­fine Your Eyes with a Nude Liner Use it along the lower lash line and wa­ter­line – it will give you a wideeyed look, mak­ing you ap­pear more awake. Larry says that a nude liner (or a pale gold one for darker skin tones) can also tone down the red­ness in your eyes – per­fect if you’ve had a late night. Go Full on Brows Wear your eye­brows thick, with a slight arch – this look re­sem­bles that of young girls who have yet to shape their eye­brows, so it makes you seem in­stantly younger. Af­ter lling in your nat­u­ral brow shape with eye­brow pen­cil or pow­der, thicken your brows by lling them in from the bot­tom up, and add more colour to the in­ner edges of each brow for more de ni­tion, says Larry. Wear Falsies False eye­lashes are per­fect for lift­ing saggy eye­lids or sleepy-look­ing eyes. Larry says you can layer another set of false eye­lashes on top of the rst set of falsies to give droopy eyes a lift. Pick one that is half the reg­u­lar lash length and that also has longer lashes to­wards the outer end. Af­ter that, com­plete the look by lin­ing your eyes with liq­uid or gel eye­liner.
