‘Women are, quite rightly, fed up with being corrected and contoured within an inch of their lives,’ says Mac’s director of make-up artistry Terry Barber when we speak about what make-up means today. ‘This year, there’s a new-found knowingness to beauty, as women of all ages reject over-egged looks that encourage them to pile on products – and, instead, have the confidence to enhance their skin in the most minimal of ways before even thinking about colour,’ he says, reminiscing about the beauty of a young Bridget Hall (left). Try Giorgio Armani Power Fabric Longwear High Cover Foundation SPF 25 (€49, brownthomas.com), followed by a sweep of Tom Ford Cheek Colour in Flush (€60, brown thomas.com) to nail ‘minimal’ skin. You can always add a daring dash of Hourglass Girl Lip Stylos in pillar-box red Lover (top left) or fuchsia Leader (top right, €30 each, libertylondon.com).
It’s easy to confuse dry skin with a complexion that is simply dehydrated. While the former lacks oil, dehydrated skin requires more moisture. The fantastic new Skin-Ceuticals HA Intensifier serum (€96, skinceuticals.com) both hydrates skin and stimulates cells’ production of the powerful natural moisturiser hyaluronic acid.
