★ Un­der-eye con­ceal­ers of­ten use skin-bright­en­ing pig­ments to can­cel out the blue in dark cir­cles, but a cam­era flash can make them look white. A lit­tle foun­da­tion pat­ted over the top stops the white­ness from show­ing, pre­vent­ing re­verse rac­coon eyes. Ap­ply­ing lip­stick and blusher be­fore you say cheese also stops fea­tures from look­ing washed out. ★ Prima cover-star pho­tog­ra­pher Nicky John­ston says, ‘Most of the celebs I work with know how to pose so they al­ways look great. It sounds vain, but look­ing in a mir­ror and work­ing out ex­pres­sions and an­gles that suit you is a good idea.’ ★ Give your jaw­line more def­i­ni­tion by touch­ing the top of your mouth with your tongue when you smile. It gives a more sculpted, firmer shape to the face.
