How should I apply my make-up?
If you've decided to wear make-up regularly but aren't too sure where to start, don't panic! A few simple steps is all it takes to achieving a flawless look. Follow the Clarins guide...
1. Step one: base
Flawless make-up and a healthy glow starts with the right base. First, moisturise your skin with your usual day cream or moisturiser, before applying a primer to perfect skin and ensure your make-up lasts throughout the day. For extra glow, reach for the SOS Primer to brighten skin and ensure round-the-clock hydration while setting your make-up. Erase wrinkles, fine lines and pores with the Instant Poreless primer to perfect skin in a flash. Once you've applied your primer, you're ready to move on to your foundation. For a natural, luminous finish, try the Skin Illusion foundation. For firmer, smoother skin, opt for the Everlasting Youth Fluid Foundation. Blot shine and shrink dilated pores with the Pore Perfecting Matifying foundation. There you have it; a flawless complexion and the perfect base for taking your make-up to the next level. For blemish-free, long-lasting results, go for a long-wear+ formula.
2. Step two: eyes
Once your complexion is done, it's time to focus on your eyes. For a natural, subtle look, a lick of Supra Volume mascara goes a long way. A single application is all you need to thicken and lengthen lashes for an understated but glamorous look. If you like something more sultry, define eyes with the Waterproof Eye Pencil or Waterproof Gel Eyeliner. Next, choose an eyeshadow that goes with your look, opting for a matte finish with the Mono Eyeshadow or a shimmery effect with the Mono Eyeshadow Glitter. Build up colour intensity to get the desired effect. If you're heading out for the evening, layer on more colour for a more intense effect.
3. Step three: lips
For the perfect finishing touch, get working on your smile. Reveal your lips' natural shade for subtle results with the Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil or go for bold, varied colours for a super glamorous effect with the Joli Rouge Lip Lacquer Joli Rouge Lip Lacquer.
