Remember the no-makeup selfie? You were probably just as happy about that as we were… But, get ready girls, because it’s about to become a thing – for real.

  1. Healthy glow

The emphasis is on base –add a touch of colour without drying out your skin with a tinted moisturiser. It will gently smooth over the appearance of your skin and hide any blemishes. Finally dust your skin lightly with a pressed powder to complete your healthy glow.
