Q: How do you get those per­fect waves that last all day?

Ev­ery­one can en­joy those tou­sled waves that last all day. Wash your hair then mist damp hair with Bed Head Queen For A Day Thick­en­ing Spray, £7.45, Al­beauty.com. Blow dry and then grab GHD Fi­nal Fix Hair­spray, £3.95, Feelunique.com, and a curl­ing wand. Sec­tion off your hair into chunks, then mist with hair­spray, wind around the wand, hold for 5 sec­onds, drop it down care­fully and mist with hair­spray. Re­peat un­til you’ve done every strand, then al­low to cool. Once the heat dies down, shake out your waves and fin­ish with one more layer of hair­spray.

Q: When is the right time to ap­ply con­cealer – be­fore or af­ter foun­da­tion?

Af­ter is al­ways best, as if you add foun­da­tion over your con­cealer, then all your hard cover up work is rubbed off. Buff on your base as nor­mal and you will see ar­eas that need a lit­tle more at­ten­tion – th­ese typ­i­cally tend to be un­der the eyes and around the nose. For blem­ishes, opt for con­cealer that is one tone lighter than your foun­da­tion and pat over your prob­lem ar­eas – I love Amaz­ing Cos­met­ics Amaz­ing Con­cealer, £19.50, mark­sand­spencer.com. For the un­der-eye area you need some­thing peachier to knock out dark­ness. Try Ben­e­fit Oh La La Lift, £17.50, Look­fan­tas­tic.com.
