Want to liven up worn out, pale, dull skin and tired eyes? No pain, no gain. We can all get gorgeous, glowing skin but it's serious business! Start with a thorough cleanse, concentrating on your T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) to remove make up, smoke, excess sebum and pollution. You should also treat yourself to a weekly facial scrub to get rid of dead cells that can suffocate skin.
Once your face is squeaky clean, it's time to moisturise. Apply a cream suited to your skin type that will nourish and protect it throughout the day. Go for a rich, creamy, soothing texture if you have dry skin or a sebum-busting mattifying cream if you have oily skin. Apply using small, circular movements and don't forget your neck!
Fancy a bit of invisible make up? Liquid textures can camouflage imperfections without covering your skin with a colour. Both BB and CC creams unify and correct our skin tone, whilst giving you a healthy glow and natural complexion. Follow by applying a translucent powder for a velvety, matt finish. Avoid foundation at all costs if you want a no make up look!
There's one sure-fire way to zap signs of tiredness - concealer! Opt for a concealer that's half a tone lighter than your skin and apply by gently dabbing it on with your fingertip. You can also use colour correcting concealers: green to conceal red patches and beige to cover pigment spots.
Add a bit of warmth by applying a bronzing powder that matches your skin to your facial contours - centre of your forehead, bridge of your nose and top of your cheekbones. Finish with a light dash of blusher - a sneaky, but effective way to cheat! A touch of pink or apricot under your cheekbones will give you a healthy outdoorsy look!
