Beauty tips: how to shine without looking ‘sweaty’

There is now an array of potions and powders that will give you that authentic dewy look

We don’t call it shiny, we call it “dewy”, we call it “fresh”, we call it any word, really, to avoid connotations of sweat. Shiny skin (as seen at Off-White) must be meant, which means potions and powders must be applied liberally, but with caution. Start with moisturiser and build up highlighter across the eyes and cheekbones. Finish with high gloss lips.

Coral riffs

Pantone’s official Colour of the Year for 2019 is a jolly pinky-orange named ‘Living Coral’. Or, as Pantone describes it, ‘An animating coral hue with a golden undertone that with a softer edge.’ Happily, it works well on your nails.

Prime mover

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.

Perfect scents

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).
