manicure, these latest tips and secrets

looks for day or evening. And, with celebrity make-up artist
Sarah Jagger’s professional guidance, it’ll be a doddle
BACK to BASICS
The secret to making your base look flawless is to first prep your skin
with a smoothing primer. Hourglass N.28 Primer Serum, £62, is packed
with essential oils and plant extracts and ideal for anyone after a dewy glow.
■ Opt for a foundation with buildable coverage like Chantecaille Future Skin,
£58, which contains soothing aloe, chamomile and arnica. Apply with
fingertips, then buff and blend any streaks away with Hourglass Foundation
Brush, £31 – an ethical, hair-free brush that feels more luxurious on the skin
than a real-hair alternative.
■ For a fresh looking summer glow try ditching your foundation in favour of
a lightweight base containing skincare benefits such as Decleor Hydra Floral
Multi Protection BB cream, £29, which invisibly evens out the skin tone and
provides 24 hour moisturising properties. Simply apply with fingertips as you
■ Apply a light dusting of a finely milled loose powder to the t-zone and
leave the cheeks powder free. Jurlique Rose Silk Finishing Powder, £24.50,
eliminates shine without inhibiting the skin’s natural radiance.

Any shape goes this season, from sharp,
pointy talons to square or oval tips. Just be
sure to file the nails in one direction to prevent
breaks and splits.
■ This summer, one of the hottest colours
around is creamy, candy pink. I love Butter
London Primrose Hill Picnic Nail Varnish,
£12. For foolproof nails, apply two to three
coats, waiting five minutes between each layer.
■ Reapplying a topcoat every other day will
ensure your manicure stays looking shiny
as well as prolonging your paint job.
■ Apply a drop of Essie Apricot Nail Oil, £10.50
to the base of each nail for super-soft cuticles
(it will also help your nails dry quicker).

Great looking lips are all in the
preparation. Use By Terry Baume de
Rose, £35, liberally before applying lipstick.
My top tip is to apply it generously at night
before bed – you’ll wake up with supersoft lips.
■ Try one of summer’s more daring lip
shades like hot oranges and corals…
you’d be surprised how much a bold
shade can brighten your face. Try Aveda
Nourish-Mint Smoothing Lip Color, £12.
■ Pencil the lips first, starting at the cupid’s
bow and working your way down the lip
line, using feathery light strokes. You can
also shade the entire lip to act as a long
lasting base for your lipstick. Aveda
Nourish Mint Lip liner in Barberry
Bloom, £12, glides on so smoothly it’s
comfortable enough to even wear without
lipstick on top.
■ Use a lip brush to apply your colour,
starting at the centre of the mouth (that
way you won’t have too much product on
the brush by the time you reach the lip line).
Press over the lip line with your fingertip for
a professional looking finish.

Smoky eyes are easy! The trick is to eliminate the need for
clever blending by opting for an easy-to-use cream shadow
stick such as By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Black Pearl,
£27.50. Simply draw around the entire lash line (top and
bottom) and smudge over the top with a small eyeshadow
■ Now line the inner rim of the eye with a black, long-lasting
pencil like Inika Eye Pencil in Black Caviar, £13.50.
■ Dark eye shadows can make eyes look smaller so curling
lashes is essential to really open up the eyes. Shu Uemera
lash curlers, £20, are amazing and make even the shortest
lashes look at least twice as long.
■ Smoky eyes look even better when balanced with a few
coats of mascara. Try Studio 78 Paris Mascara, £21.
You’d be surprised how much a bold
shade can brighten your complexion.
Get rosy CHEEKS
Beautiful blush is all in the blending. I like to apply
blusher in circular strokes, starting at the apple of
the cheek (smiling helps to find the right spot) and
working up towards the centre of the ear.
■ Once you’ve applied your blush, go over the
entire cheek area again with a large, clean powder
brush, which will blend it to a professional finish.
■ Subtle shades of peach flatter almost all skin
tones. Dryer complexions will love a cream blush
like Liz Earle Healthy Glow Cream Blush in
Camellia, £16.50, and a normal to oily skin can
wear Bare Minerals Radiance Powder in
Tropical Radiance, £19.
