MUST TRY make-up

Good Housekeeping (UK) - - Good Looks -

Foun­da­tion that goes the dis­tance Of 30 foun­da­tions we tested with long-wear claims, our win­ner was L’oréal Paris In­fal­li­ble 24H Foun­da­tion, £10.99. Easy to ap­ply, it blends quickly and gives up to eight hours of cov­er­age. Suit­able for all skin types. 87/100 For lightweight cov­er­age Cush­ion foun­da­tions (liq­uid for­mu­las in a com­pact) are great if you like a sheer fin­ish – and good for touch-ups on the go. Yves Saint Lau­rent Fu­sion Ink Cush­ion Foun­da­tion, £43.50, is our win­ner. Re­fill­able and avail­able in six shades, our testers loved the nat­u­ral fin­ish it gave and its hy­drat­ing feel. 89/100

Lips pick For a chic lip that lasts, a matte liq­uid lip­stick is your go-to. Kiko In­stant Colour Matte Liq­uid Lip Colour, £7.90, was a win­ner with our testers, who loved the rich colour. It got top marks on our cof­fee cup trans­fer test, too. 85/100

Multi-task­ing gem Stream­line your make-up bag with a multi-pur­pose make-up stick for cheeks and lips. Our win­ner is Smash­box LA Lights Blend­able Lip & Cheek Color, £26, which has a flat sponge at one end to help you dif­fuse the lu­mi­nous colour. 89/100

Magic mas­cara

It’s a best seller – and with good rea­son. Of the 18 we tested, Lancôme Hyp­nose Drama Wa­ter­proof Mas­cara, £25, got top marks for its wand de­sign, abil­ity to thicken and lengthen lashes with­out clump­ing, and its tenac­ity – while also being easy to re­move at the end of the day. 95/100 Fresh for longer A make-up set­ting spray helps min­imise smudg­ing and fad­ing. Of the 22 we tested, Clar­ins Fix’ Make-up, £24, came out top. It feels light and comfy on the skin, and re­ally de­liv­ers when it comes to keep­ing make-up in place. 93/100 Skin-flat­ter­ing high­lighter Creamy top-scorer Boots No7 In­stant Ra­di­ance High­lighter, £10, is a dream to use. Ap­ply it on tem­ples and cheek­bones for a lift­ing, nat­u­ral glow. 93/100

Wow brows With an in­no­va­tive tex­ture com­bin­ing pow­der, pen­cil and wax, se­ri­ous stay­ing power and easy-tounder­stand in­struc­tions, Too Faced Bul­let­proof Brows, £27, im­pressed across the board. 95/100

Liner that lasts Loved by in­dus­try ex­perts and our testers alike, Anas­ta­sia Bev­erly Hills Wa­ter­proof Crème Color, £18 (cult­beauty.co.uk) is a black gel eye­liner that stays in place, look­ing freshly ap­plied all day. 88/100

Some­thing to hide? For full cov­er­age of blem­ishes, dark cir­cles and pig­men­ta­tion spots, our testers gave top marks to Too Faced Born This Way Con­cealer, £20. 93/100
