Under the spotlight:Not all restaurants and bars have mastered the art of flattering ambience. Cue Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light, £38. The feather light powder simulates the effect of good lighting and more importantly, glowing skin. The application is simple: using a bronzer or powder brush dust it across your forehead, the tops of your cheekbones, your brow bones and your chin.
Everlasting lipstick:The trick to making your lipstick last, without having to keep topping it up, is to line the lip. Draw around your lip and colour it in with a neutral lip liner, such as Trish McEvoy Long-Wear Lip Liner in Barely There, £20. Only then do you apply your lipstick – we recommend Sisley’s Phyto Lip Twist in Nude or Cherry, £29.
Bright-eyed:For that fresh, bright-eyed look, curl your lashes before applying your mascara to give them extra impact. Surratt’s Relevee Lash Curler, £22, has two bars rather than the traditional one, meaning you need less pressure to curl. Use a fine eyeliner, such as Hourglass gel eyeliner, £39, to outline the outer corner of your eye on the upper and lower lids to give the impression of bigger, luminous eyes.
