Pre-Highlighting

Dewy, barely there complexions were all over the spring/summer runways with Burberry, Roland Mouret and Jil Sander opting for a less is more approach, focusing on achieving a radiant base that looks lit from within. When it comes to giving your skin a healthy, youthful appearance, there’s a quick and easy makeup hack that anyone can master to help you achieve a luminous glow. Enter ‘pre-highlighting’. This simple technique involves using a highlighter under your makeup.

Start by prepping the skin with a super hydrating moisturiser, then apply an illuminating liquid highlighter to the cheekbones, across the forehead, down the bridge of the nose and on the chin. Once complete, use a sheer layer of lightweight foundation to allow your radiant base to shine through, et voilá, natural-looking glowing skin that will leave you looking rejuvenated, radiant and rested! Team with glossy lips for flawless results.


Purple Eyeshadow

Are you a fan of the smoky eye? Get ready to back away from the black as this season it’s all about embracing colour with your eyeshadow, and soft pinks and purples are leading the way.

Try a light wash of lilac eye shadow for an effortless way to trial the trend. Or, go bold with amethyst or berry shades as seen on the runways of House of Holland and Mark Fast. If you’re willing to try bold and beautiful, use a cream eyeshadow for a highly pigmented look and keep the rest of your make-up minimal to let your eyes take centre stage. Not keen on statement lids? Mimic the models at Balmain and try using a purple liner along the lower lash line for a flash of colour instead.

Pink Blush

Add a flirty flush to your base by applying pretty pink blush to the apples of the cheeks for a fresh finish or channel the 80s and try the draping technique as seen at Jason Wu and Sies Marjan. Simply apply a powder blusher high on the cheekbones to contour and lift the face then take it one step further, by blending into the temples and diffusing into your eye area.

When it comes to choosing your formula, liquid or cream textures work well on normal to dry skin to add a dewy boost, whilst powder is best for oily skin types. Want to make a statement? Try layering your fluid blusher underneath a coordinating powder to really make the colour pop.
