Keep make-up fresh and glowy with nude shades on eyes and lips. A subtle shimmer on lids, blended outwards and upwards, will help lift the eye area. Using a lighter eyeliner in your lower waterline and a darker shade on your top lashline adds definition without looking harsh. Make-up artist Hannah Martin suggests applying a facial SPF underneath your base for protection and avoiding using SPF in your foundation as this causes flashback in images. When opting for fake lashes, stick to individual clusters on outer corners for subtle drama. 

FOR THE RIGHT RED

When going for a bold lip, keep things simple everywhere else with a pared-back eye and a light base

When going for a bold lip, keep things simple everywhere else with a pared-back eye and a light base. To increase radiance without resorting to a shimmer highlighter, use an emollient such as Weleda Skin Food stippled on to the high points of cheekbones so as not to disturb make-up underneath. When it comes to your perfect red shade, go with your gut. If in doubt, Hannah says you can always rely on Mac Ruby Woo – it’s a global bestseller that suits all skin tones. To avoid colour bleeding, line the lips with a barrier product such as Trinny London Miracle Blur before applying colour. 

FOR STANDOUT EYES

Hannah’s tips for this look are to mattify the lid using a face powder so the wing doesn’t transfer throughout the day, and to trace the cat eye with a neutral-toned powder first to guide your shape

Make it classic with winged eyeliner. Hannah’s tips for this look are to mattify the lid using a face powder so the wing doesn’t transfer throughout the day, and to trace the cat eye with a neutral-toned powder first to guide your shape. This can still work on a more mature eye, she says. As long as you ensure that the line looks smooth with your eyes open, rather than the shape when you look down, your wing will look flawless. Filling out brows helps give a stronger framing to balance the wing, too.
