Friday - - Editor’s Letter -

1 Too bright, too dark or too gaudy and I run from nail var­nish as far as pos­si­ble. But Il­la­masqua churns out the best shades for peo­ple like me, and this gor­geous pearlised gold shim­mer in Beam is per­fect for ev­ery mood and out­fit. Plus it’s chip-re­sis­tant, so two coats and I’m out of the door! Dh110, Bloom­ing­dale’s.

2 I’m very sen­si­tive about my skin and ab­hor any­thing that’s loaded with chem­i­cals and prom­ises ethe­real beauty overnight. I lean to­wards nat­u­ral prod­ucts, and Herbal Essentials’ Aloe Vera and Sweet Al­mond Oil Cleans­ing Milk is my thing du jour. It gently re­moves make-up and all signs of dirt, while leav­ing my skin soft and sup­ple. Dh99, Boots.

3 If you’re a con­tour­ing new­bie like I am, the Ro­dial Deluxe Con­tour­ing Pow­der will take you from drab to fab in just min­utes. Its neu­tral shade suits all skin tones, and you’ll be able to cre­ate a chis­elled look with killer cheek­bones in no time. Psst... it’s Kim Kar­dashian’s fave! Dh360, Paris Gallery.
