TAN­NING SAVIOUR

When you end up with or­ange palms and patchy el­bows af­ter ap­ply­ing fake tan, sim­ply mix to­gether some fresh lemon juice with a few tea­spoons of bak­ing pow­der un­til it forms a paste. Then use it wher­ever the stain­ing is­sue is and give it a good scrub – it’ll lift the tan away.

BYE, BYE STAINS

If you have foun­da­tion marks on the col­lar of your favourite shirt, douse the area with a lit­tle bit of shav­ing foam, leave it to set­tle for five min­utes, wipe it away and then throw the shirt in the wash­ing ma­chine – it’ll come out stain-free.

TAR­GETED SKIN­CARE

If you have com­bi­na­tion skin, don’t just ap­ply one face mask all over – use a dry­ing mask on your t-zone, an anti-acne mask where you get blem­ishes most and a spe­cific eye friendly mask around the del­i­cate eye area.

GO FOR MATTE

If you have very oily skin, give prod­ucts with a lot of shim­mer a side step. This doesn’t just mean high­lighter, it goes for shim­mery eye­shadow and lip­glosses too as they will just make your whole face ap­pear even shinier.

CAM­OU­FLAGE HELP

Never use un­der-eye bright­en­ing con­cealer on a spot, even if it’s red and an­gry! The lightre­flect­ing par­ti­cles in the con­cealer will only draw more at­ten­tion. In­stead use a yel­lowy based matte cream con­cealer topped with pow­der for the best re­sults.

NO MORE CREASES

Creased con­cealer is one of the most an­noy­ing beauty bug­bears. To stop this from hap­pen­ing, ap­ply your con­cealer as nor­mal and then very quickly press a tis­sue over the area be­fore ap­ply­ing your set­ting pow­der. The tis­sue will pick up ex­tra mois­ture so that your con­cealer won’t move around and sink into creases.

HOW TO STROBE

Forget con­tour­ing, strob­ing is where it’s at! Strob­ing makes your face glow. All you have to do is ap­ply your high­lighter above the brows, un­der the brows, in the in­ner cor­ners of your eyes, in a ‘C’ shape around your cheek­bones, down your nose, on your cupid’s bow and in a line down your chin.

EYE-BAG TRICK

If you have puffy un­der-eyes, use a con­cealer one shade darker than your nat­u­ral skin­tone on the puffi­est part and a lighter con­cealer on the skin that in­dents un­der the bag. Dark colours ap­pear to re­cede so your bags will look less puffy and light colours pop out so the in­dents will look less pro­nounced.

A PER­FECT MATCH

Test foun­da­tion on your neck be­cause the skin on your cheeks could be dis­coloured from sun ex­po­sure or high red­ness, so the foun­da­tion you match to this part of your face isn’t go­ing to be the right shade when you ac­tu­ally ap­ply it all over.
