THE SKIN TINT
Hourglass’ superior Illusion Hyaluronic Skin Tint, £51, uses advanced technology to promote the appearance of a smoother, firmer and more youthful complexion. Fortified with Hyaluronan Complex, it plumps fine lines and wrinkles, tightens sagging skin and delivers a luminous glow.

This Cover FX Perfect Setting Powder, £29, is formulated without talc for a translucent finish that sets makeup for all-day wear without adding any colour to the skin or overpowering the finish of your foundation. Light-diffusing particles blur and smooth for a skin-perfecting airbrushed effect that doesn’t look chalky or dry.
Stila’s Heaven’s Hue Highlighter, £29, has a gossamer-light, radiance-enhancing formula with a buttery texture that melts into skin for a barely-there feel. Ultra fine, light-diffusing particles help skin look perfectly lit with a soft, luminous, natural-looking glow.
