WE speak to celebrity make-up artist Kenneth Soh to help you get your blush bang-on this autumn.
From all-over blush, to contrast liner and power pouts, we help you to feel bright and dazzle friends on the dance floor with millennial pink products.
A high-pigmented cream such as Vincent Longo Water Canvas Blush in Terra Dew, £21, works best on medium to dark skin.
To find your colour match, pinch the fleshy parts of your cheek and watch the way your complexion naturally flushes. YSL Blush Volupté Heart of Light in Singuliere, £33.50, is a suits-all subtle shade.
Apricot tones such as Rodial Blusher in Copacabana, £30, help warm up skin or give a fading tan a new lease of life.
Blush is like the glue that subtly pulls your whole make-up look together – unless you intend to make a statement with an acid bright, such as L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blush Paint in Fuchsia, £6.99.
If that’s the case, then all rules go out the window!
A sheer gel such as W7 Pump And Blush Long Wear Cream Blush in Cotton, £4.95, is perfect for pale skins.
Blush should always look like a natural flush, so avoid shimmer and instead apply a separate highlighter like Bobbi Brown Cream Glow Highlighter in Pink Opal, £21, on the tops of your cheekbones for a selfie-ready sheen.
If you’re still not sure about the right shade, this one is always a winner.
Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in Bang, £21, will give you a healthy glow when applied over the apples of your cheeks.
To freshen a dull complexion, go for a bright, candy pink like Lola Make Up Blusher Mono in Pink, £11.95, which will lift and brighten.
I usually get my bikini line waxed at a salon but it’s so pricey. Can I get the same results at home for cheaper? Karen, Southampton
When it comes to battling the bush, I totally sympathise.
For years I took a trip to, er, “Hollywood” in the pursuit of a fuzz-free downstairs.
However, since becoming a mum I’ve let standards slip and have tried every at-home wax treatment out there.
I’m yet to find one that gives you the super-smooth salon finish, though.
An epilator is great for DIY leg, arm and facial hair removal, but down there it can be too sensitive.
The one thing I have found that competes with salon quality is an at-home laser machine.
I was sceptical until I tried the Illuminage Touch Permanent Hair Reduction Device, £375.
After using it weekly for six weeks, hair growth is dramatically slower.
And there’s no need to stop at your bikini line – this clever machine means I’ve got fuzz-free legs and armpits, too, all for the price of 10 bikini waxes!
