Start with moisturiser and build up highlighter across the eyes and cheekbones. Finish with high gloss lips.

Micellar water, that genius make-up remover, is evolving. As well as water (try Kiehl’s for sensitive skin) there’s a new wave of alternatives: Medik8’s Micellar Mousse, Garnier’s new milky micellar, Clinique’s gel formula, and Manuka Doctor’s pads.
Haircare brand Ouai is as famous for how good its products smell as how soft they make your hair. So it makes perfect sense that they are now releasing a range of four eau de parfums, based on the scents of the products themselves (£46, theouai.co.uk).
