Waterproof Wonders

Whether you’re going for a run in the park or making a splash in the backyard paddling pool with the kids, you might find your usual daily skincare essentials don’t cut it when it comes to sweat and water. A hard-working primer before your make-up will make all the difference. This silky-smooth base blurs away pores, and gives your foundation twice the staying power without feeling heavy to wear. Dot and blend from the middle of your face in an outwards motion a couple of minutes before your cover-up for a flawless finish.

Bright Blinkers

Staring at your laptop all day combined with late nights can take its toll on your eyes, leading to dark shadows and puffy lids. Soothe peepers back to their former glory by applying a hydrating eye cream morning and night. For a quick perk-up, dot a blend a pea sized amount of this brightening hero under and around the eyes, before gently patting in with your ring finger. It’s like 8hrs of sleep in a tube!
