Fast ways to look fabulous
Because it’s that time of year to shine!
Highlighting is the secret to youngerlooking skin, says Caroline Barnes, Max Factor’s make-up artist for UK and Ireland. ‘I love using highlighter to add youthful dewiness, but you don’t want your face to be shining like a glitterball. Add a little at a time, building up to a subtle glow.’ Max Factor Miracle Glow Pro-illuminator,
£10.99, flatters all skin tones. Apply to the bridge of the nose, your Cupid’s bow and above cheekbones, blending out towards your temples. Highlighter can also help sculpt your décolletage, shoulders and legs. Apply down the front of your shins, along the top of your shoulders and just above your collarbone. Prima loves Models Own Throw Shimmer Highlighter Sticks, £7.99, and Ted Baker Fragrant Bloom Shimmer Body Wash,
£12, which leaves a pretty sheen on your skin.
Nothing gets you in the mood for merriment faster than a bold, red lip. A satiny texture like Clarins Joli
Rouge Gradation in
Red Gradation, £22, looks modern, and this deep red shade has a lighter pink strip in the middle to make thinner lips appear plumper. Or for colour that lasts, try Bourjois Rouge Fabuleux in
Scarlet It Be, £8.99, which gives intense colour for up to 10 hours and won’t dry out your lips.
