Catch of the day: Blush

What: Dior Cheek & Lip Glow

Why: Incredibly pretty, subtle and weightless colour that gives you this post-exercise glow. Without the exercise, it is. The texture is a gel which dries into a seamless, flat stain that you can’t even feel on your skin.

Where: Boots on Piccadilly Circus, London (UK)

Also available at: Perfumeries, Sephora, department stores

Under-eye correction

Had a late night? Say goodbye to those stubborn under-eye circles that inevitably come with it. The trick is to add two easy extra steps to your make-up routine – one before and one after applying your concealer, it is. This doesn’t take much time, but trust me: it really makes the difference!
