Get the Look: Fresh-Faced Beauty Look

Great news ladies, this season is all about finding make up that enhances your natural beauty so skin looks radiant, luminous and flawless. 

Valentino’s models (Featured left) strutted down the runway with an enviable luminous look during the S/S16 Couture Week by sculpting and highlighting the complexion on the cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, chin and forehead. Christian Dior (middle) kept the face minimal with a velvety finish and a bold red lip while Giambattista Valli used concealer where necessary to create and even skin tone to create a fresh and beautiful complexion.

The key to creating these looks is to focus on vamping up your skincare and keeping your complexion wonderfully hydrated.


Prep & Prime
A primer is an important step in any skincare routine as it evens out your skintone, allows for better and longer make up application. Whatever your skincare concern – smoothing, redness, hydration, radiance – Make Up Forever has a wide selection of primers to suit.

Use an Eye Cream
A powerful eye cream can make your eyes look brighter. The new one on the block and that I highly recommend is Clinique’s Pep-Start. The cool touch and de-puffing tip helps to refresh, hydrate, brighten and perk up up in an instant.


Apply a Super-Serum
A serum is a concentrated formula that helps to target your most common skincare concerns. Clarins Double Serum is an intensive anti-ageing treatment that is rich in 20 plant extracts to boosts the skin’s vital functions so skin looks firmer, your complexion gets glowing again and reduces the appearance of pores. This multi-tasker is a wishlist must-have.

Moisturise, Moisturise, Moisturise
A moisturiser is must-do for any skincare routine. I highly recommend the Estee Lauder Revitalising Supreme Light with IntuiGen Technology that knows your skin’s needs so it helps to activate skin’s ability to revitalise itself.

Make up Must-Haves
Next apply some make up to enhance skin’s natural radiance using just concealers and/or correctors or a lightweight tinted moisturiser that will give you that perfect barely-there flawless finish.

Top Tip: Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated throughout the day.

    My grandaughter is just 16 and doesnt yet wear very much make up. We are in London for a few days from the 15th Jully and wondered if any of Debenhams beauty areas did make overs and advice? We would prefer to book a slot if they are available.
    This is for the Oxford Street, London Store.

      Hi Elizabeth,

      This sounds like a lovely idea - if you phone the Oxford Street store on 0344 800 8877, ask to speak to the make-up counter of your choice and you should be able to book in a slot for her, or for the both of you.

      Many thanks,
