BEAUTY TRICKS TO TRY NOW

In need of a quick post-winter pick-me-up? It’s time to unlock the secrets to a fresher, younger and spring-ready new you with the latest beauty boosters, writes beauty editor Emma Robertson

BRIGHTEN UP

Fresh, luminous skin never goes out of fashion – and
this season, it’s your biggest beauty asset. Opt for skincare supercharged with light-reflecting particles or radiance-boosting actives such as vitamin C. Add a
mini face massage to each stage of your three-step
regime – it stimulates circulation for pampered skin that glows from within

 

MAGIC TOUCH
Kick-start your day with Murad’s Renewing Cleansing Cream, which cleanses and gently exfoliates with fruit enzymes. Make fingertip circles on the forehead, cheeks and jaw to massage life back into skin

EASY ON THE EYE
Make dark shadows a thing of the past with Formula Advanced’s Skin Solutions Radiance Revital-Eyes – its metallic tip is specially contoured for the delicate eye area

ADD DEFINITION

Contouring is the must-try beauty trick of the
moment; it’s an easy way to enhance facial features
in a few smooth make-up moves. The rules? Use
neutral shades in powder formulations for a subtle
sculpted effect. Tie it together with expertly
groomed brows, which will lift your entire look

HIGH BROW
Pür Minerals’ dual-ended Wake Up Brow Pencil combines a coloured kohl at one end to fill sparse areas and a clever highlighter – blend it under arches to brighten and add height

PLUMP IT UP

For an instant burst of youth and vitality, put the spotlight on perky rosy cheeks, full-bodied lips and bouncy luscious hair. Amp up the volume with a pink-tinted lip balm (one with a shot of shimmer creates the illusion of curvy lips), juicy cream blush and silicone-free haircare to revive the limpest of locks
