Put your hands together for makeup’s greatest power house. They conceal, flatter and define so you can look your best yet. It’s time to powder up!
A light dusting of a shimmery powder over you décolleté can make the world of difference to your LBD. It’ll mean your skin catches the light and looks seductive and glowing. Marks and Spencer Sparkle Body Powder, £8, is our favourite body brightener.
A translucent powder like Illamasqua Loose Powder, £24, over the top of your makeup will keep it in place all day and all night. Use a fan brush to get super-light coverage. It’s our favourite skin finisher.
Dust Bare Minerals All Over Face Colour in Warmth £19, on where you face naturally catches the sun and you’ll instantly get a golden glow, no sun required. Squeeze a fat brush and dust it under cheekbones for slimming definition.
Clarins Skin Illusion, £28, mineral foundation gives skin a dewy, glowing finish, leaving no trace that you’ve used a powder. Just make sure you buff it deep into the skin using a kabuki brush and circular motions for a perfect complexion.
Sweep a touch of Smashbox Halo Longwear Blush in Coral, £24, up your cheeks and you’ll instantly look years younger. Smile into the mirror and put it just on the apples of your cheeks.
If pressed into the skin, a loose eyeshadow can last way longer than most other types. Apply Kiko Pigment Loose Eyeshadow £5.90, with a small brush to start, then press it in firmly with your fingers. Load it up in thin layers for more intense colour.
