Stream­line Your Make-up Bag

Beauty ex­pert Caroline Barnes has the ul­ti­mate sum­mer ed­ité


Sum­mer is all about trav­el­ling light and be­ing spon­ta­neous, right? So with in­vites to af­ter-work drinks, bar­be­cues and par­ties com­ing in thick and fast, you’ll want to nail a beauty rou­tine in un­der 10 min­utes.

And who bet­ter to ask for in­sider know-how than Max Fac­tor’s make-up artist Caroline Barnes... What’s the se­cret for pack­ing light when it comes to a make-up edit? Choose prod­ucts you know will work for ev­ery sce­nario, such as Max Fac­tor’s Facefin­ity All Day Flaw­less 3 in 1 Foun­da­tion. A primer, con­cealer and foun­da­tion in one, it’ll fix an un­even skin tone and give you a ra­di­ant com­plex­ion with a beau­ti­fully soft, matte fin­ish.

There are 14 shades, and it has a SPF 20, which is vi­tal. It’s not sur­pris­ing that it’s Max Fac­tor’s No.1 best­selling foun­da­tion.* For beauty on the go, I’d sug­gest us­ing a com­pressed pow­der with a mir­ror, such as the Facefin­ity com­pact.

Any tips on how I should ap­ply Facefin­ity All Day Flaw­less 3-in-1 Foun­da­tion? I’d say use the tips of your fin­gers for a more nat­u­ral fin­ish. For medium to full cov­er­age, use a small foun­da­tion brush and work up from the T-zone out­wards. For full base cover, use a con­cealer brush and del­i­cately build the foun­da­tion over any blem­ishes, us­ing pow­der lightly to set.

Other than foun­da­tion, what other prod­ucts are you never with­out? Def­i­nitely Max Fac­tor’s Colour In­ten­si­fy­ing Lip Balm to keep your lips hy­drated. Also the 2000 Calo­rie Curl Ad­dict Mas­cara for vo­lu­mi­nous lashes. And the new Max Fac­tor Bronzer for colour and a nat­u­ral, healthy glow. There, all sorted!
