ARE you ready to give your skin some TLC after the cold winter? The party season is the time when we all let our beauty regime slip a little, removing your make-up seems less of a priority and that extra glass of wine doesn’t count! It’s only when the fun is over that we realise what we’ve actually done to our skin.

Have a clear out

In a panicked frenzy, skincare sales rise at this time of year, but it can be confusing to know what to buy. First, it’s time to throw away any make-up or creams you’ve had for a year or more! Make-up brushes should always be clean. Don’t own make-up brushes? Get some! Applying foundation with your hands wastes a lot and full coverage is never achieved.

As a make-up artist, I have worked on all skin types imaginable with products from La Prairie and Urban Decay, to Max Factor and Tesco’s own. The only way you find what suits you, is by trying!

Try something new

Here’s a little trick – stay away from any matte foundation. It’s only in my kit for one purpose – to age a character with special effects! That says everything, right? The cake-like product sits in every wrinkle and takes away that important dew we need for a youthful glow. I love BB creams; they’re all the rage and should moisturise, provide SPF protection and soothe your skin as well as give you sheer coverage. If you haven’t tried it, now’s the time!
