How should I apply my make-up?

If you've decided to wear make-up regularly but aren't too sure where to start, don't worry! A few simple steps is all it takes to achieve a flawless look. Follow the Clarins guide...

1. Step One: Base

A successful make-up application and a healthy glow start with getting the right base. First, moisturize your skin with your usual day cream or moisturizer, before applying a primer to perfect skin and make your make-up last throughout the day. For extra glow, reach for the SOS Primer to brighten skin and ensure round-the-clock hydration while setting your make-up. Erase wrinkles, fine lines and pores with the Instant Poreless primer to perfect skin in a flash. Once you've applied your primer, you're ready to move on to your foundation. For a natural, luminous finish, try the Everlasting Youth Fluid. And there you have it: a flawless complexion and the perfect base to take your make-up to the next level.

2. Step Two: Eyes

Once your complexion is done, it's time to focus on your eyes. For a natural, subtle look, a swipe of Supra Volume mascara goes a long way. A single application is all you need to thicken and lengthen lashes for an understated but glamorous look. If you like something a little sultrier, define eyes with the Khôl Eye Pencil. Next, choose an eyeshadow that goes with your look: either a matte finish with the Ombre Matte or a shimmery effect with the Ombre Iridescente.
Build up color intensity to get the desired effect. If you're heading out for the evening, layer on more color for more intensity.

3. Step three: Lips

For the perfect finishing touch, get working on your smile. Reveal your lips' natural shade for subtle results with the LIP COMFORT OIL or go for bold, varied colors for a super glamorous look with the Joli Rouge Lacquer.
