• The BB cream

    The latest beauty balm on the block is nourishing, illuminating and evens skin tone. A lighter alternative to foundation, apply only to areas that need coverage, as a little goes a long way. We love the instant dewy effect.
    Try: Guerlain Lingerie de Peau BB Beauty Booster.

    The brightener

    Radiant skin is at the top of every woman's beauty wish list. Keeping dark shadows at bay is the secret, so this illuminating formula

    is one to know for any areas with persistent shadows or redness. Layer it over your usual foundation for post-summer, tanned skin.

    The concealer

    Concealers are no longer just about hiding dark circles, thanks to advanced formulas. Look out for

    Clarins Light Optimizing+ Complex: it brightens, smoothes and stimulates circulation, reducing puffiness. A treatment concealer that really works.
    Try: Clarins Instant Concealer.

    The highlighter

    A makeup artist's ultimate backstage skill is tricking the light to flatter cheekbones, make noses appear dainty and give lips the appearance of fullness. Becca's cult highlighter now comes in Opal, a one-shade-for-all formula that does all of the above, and leaves you with that dewy glow of "well-ness".
    Try: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector SPF25 in Opal.

    The finishing powder

    Whether you are heading to the beach or to a business meeting, apply a finishing powder. Think of it as a top coat: a fine pressed powder that keeps makeup in place, mattifies sunscreen shine and adds a barely there veil to skin, whatever the season.
    Try: Chantecaille Poudre Parfaite HD Perfecting Powder.

    THE skin

    From concealers to powders, flawless skin has never been easier to achieve
