Fake a gorgeous radiance from head to toe with this beauty cheat sheet.
Do your prep work
Magnificent skin begins with proper skincare. So if you’re ever torn between splurging on foundation or skincare, always choose the latter. Start off with cleansing oil like Shu Uemura’s Anti/Oxi+ Cleansing Oil, which counters the dulling effects of pollution on your face.
If your skin is looking lacklustre, reach for an antioxidant-rich moisturiser that’packed with vitamin C — massage it in to help boost blood flow.
Tackle those stubborn dry spots by dipping a cotton bud into some facial oil, then rub it over the patch until your skin is smooth. Remember, layering your serum and moisturiser is also key to a beautiful dewy effect.
This is the first-ever serum-in-cream that works on all aspects of your complexion - pore size, firmness and radiance.
