Top tip: “If your foundation feels dry or cakey, applying a bit of moisturiser on top, then finish by dusting a layer of bronzer onto cheeks for a healthy glow.”
Top tip: “Always conceal the area between your inner eyes and the bridge of your nose. Often there’s a blue shadow visible here which many people forget about, but erasing it really brightens your eyes.”
Try: BBB London Conceal and Lift in Medium, £22, has a peachy tint to counteract blue.
Top tip: “Try my Magic Cream, darling! So called because I used it backstage to turn around the tired skin of supermodels: they became obsessed and would ask me for a dab of my ‘magic’ ultra-moisturising potion!”
Top tip: “Use long-lasting cream eye shadows. These allow you to contour your eyes with zero effort, and last all day without creasing.”
Top tip: “A good base and a touch of colour for cheeks is a must. Maestro Fusion suits older skin due to its non-drying, slippery oil-based formula.”
Top tip: “Don’t attempt to ‘cover’ your wrinkles; no concealer is going to hide them. Instead, use a light concealer and be sure to moisturise well first.”
Top tip: “Never skip mascara! It’s so versatile and instantly brightens up the eye: wear alone for a natural look or apply a thick coat for more drama.”
