10 min­utes to… A glow­ing com­plex­ion

Prima (UK) - - Beautiful You -

STEP ONE: MOIS­TURISE No mat­ter how busy you are, al­ways mois­turise to plump and hy­drate your skin. We’re lov­ing Nspa Ex­pert Daily Re­ju­ve­nate Cream (£10, Asda) teamed with Nivea Q10 plus C En­ergy Anti-wrin­kle Eye Cream (£10.99, Boots) on the eye area – with ra­di­ance-pro­mot­ing vi­ta­min C.

STEP TWO: PRIME A primer, ap­plied be­fore foun­da­tion, will make the tex­ture of your skin look more uni­form and keep make-up in place for longer. Stila One Step Prime (£24) fills in pores and lines.

STEP THREE: PICK A BASE For a light cov­er­age, try Clinique Even Bet­ter Glow Light Re­flect­ing Makeup (£27) to min­imise lines and leave skin look­ing lu­mi­nous. And for a hand­bag es­sen­tial, reach for Clarins Ever­last­ing Cush­ion Foun­da­tion (£31).

Look­ing for a build­able base? Nude by Na­ture Flaw­less Liq­uid Foun­da­tion (£25, feelu­nique.com) is a min­eral cov­er­age with a semi-matte fin­ish. If you like to touch-up on the go, you’ll love El­iz­a­beth Ar­den Flaw­less Fin­ish Ev­ery­day Per­fec­tion Bouncy Makeup (£28).

For more sub­stan­tial cov­er­age, YSL All Hours Cov­er­age (£33.50) does what it says on the tin – stay­ing put all night long.

Max Fac­tor Healthy Skin Har­mony Mir­a­cle Foun­da­tion (£14.99, Boots) leaves skin with a semi-matte, shine-free fin­ish.

STEP FOUR: IN­STANT CHEEK­BONES Give your­self a sculpted look by us­ing matte bronzer un­der the cheek­bones at the part near­est to the hair­line be­fore you ap­ply your blusher. An an­gled brush, such as Real Tech­niques Sculpt­ing Brush (£9.99, Boots), gives you more con­trol, al­low­ing pre­cise ap­pli­ca­tion.

STEP FIVE: GO FOR GLOW Fake a flat­ter­ing can­dlelit glow with a dust­ing of

Top­shop High­lighter in Cres­cent Moon (£12), a sheeny golden il­lu­mi­nat­ing pow­der. For an easy-to-ap­ply liq­uid, we’re lov­ing Delilah Pure Light Liq­uid Ra­di­ance (£32, delilah­cos­met­ics.com). Both can be ap­plied to cheek­bones, tem­ples and col­lar­bones.
