How tomake it last

1 A pris­tine base is es­sen­tial to nailing a per­fectly con­toured face. “Try us­ing a foun­da­tion that has a built-in primer so you save on time in the morn­ings and can have a flaw­less com­plex­ion that lasts all day,” says Max Fac­tor’s Samira. We love Max Fac­tor Face Fin­ity All Day Foun­da­tion (Dh89, Boots) – ap­ply it evenly, buff­ing it in to the skin so it gives im­mac­u­late cov­er­age.

2 Ap­ply a long-last­ing con­cealer to cover dark un­der-eye cir­cles and high­light the high planes of the face like Dolce & Gab­bana’s Per­fect Matte Con­cealer (Dh190, Paris Gallery). Start right un­der the eye, us­ing a pat and roll move­ment with your ring fin­ger to blend in. Then draw on above the cheek­bone, where you ap­ply bronzer, along the bridge of the nose, the cupid’s bow and chin.

3 Us­ing a dual-toned bronzer, ap­ply the darker shade in the hol­lows of your cheeks to define, stroking out to­wards the hair­line, then use the lighter shade right on the cheek­bone to high­light, blend­ing to en­sure there are no harsh lines be­tween the two.

4 Dust loose translu­cent pow­der over the face, and ap­ply a lit­tle with a shadow brush to your lashes too – this is a top tip that will make your mas­cara last longer.

5 In­stantly brighten eyes us­ing a light pink or white liner on the wa­ter­line, and work a tof­fee-coloured, water­proof eye­shadow over the lid, in­ten­si­fy­ing the colour at the crease and un­der the lashes. Fin­ish off with two coats of smudge-proof dark brown mas­cara for a nat­u­rally beau­ti­ful flut­ter.

6 Fin­ish with a slick of hydrating lip balm that looks nat­u­ral and pol­ished. Easy!
