It’s easy then, keep make-up light and fresh, nothing heavy and get yourself:

A) A good primer

Here are a couple of options:

Tarte’s Timeless Smoothing Primer – this has amazing reviews, mattifies as well as blurs the skin, and can be used under or over make-up.

IT Cosmetics’ Anti-aging Serum Primer No.50 – this is the one I use on air, so that should tell you how good it is because it has the biggest test of the studio lights to contend with.

B) A finishing/setting powder or spray 

At the moment we’re loving:

Tarte’s Stay Spray – a beautiful blend of vitamin E, cucumber and aloe to help refresh and cool the skin.

Doll 10’s Protecting Treatment Powder – lasts all day and makes your skin look flawless and radiant.

Bareminerals’ Dew Setting Mist– currently on clearance at £12 so be quick.
