Get Glowing Skin

Caressable skin? It’s fresh, clear and natural looking. When you’re playing up your eyes or lips you don’t want be distracted by a blotchy or blemished face. You need a foundation that offers coverage and leaves a natural luminous finish. Get a dewy-finish liquid foundation that’ll leave you hydrated and skin feeling comfortable. And remember for more coverage use a brush for flawless application, and for a sheer finish, apply with your fingers. Try Clarins Skin Illusion Natural Radiance Foundation SPF 10 (R475).



Get A Sexy Shimmer

To add dimension to your face and knock em off their feet, apply a touch of highlighter. Highlighter should be used purposefully to play up your best features – apply on cheekbones or on tear ducts. Switching to a cream or liquid is more subtle and forgiving in the daylight (if the date is during the day). This lightweight shimmer naturally illuminates and corrects your skin tone for a flawless finish. It also offers hydrating and soothing skin care benefits. Try Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base (R395).



Get A New Sultry Smokey Eye

This eye palette is fortunately long-lasting (so you can have another glass of wino) and available in matte, satin and pearl-finish shades for a natural or sophisticated look. Try Clarins 4-Colour Eye Palette (R560).
