No less than two make-up artists have commented to me recently that if someone compliments your foundation, you’re in trouble: like great underwear, your base should just imperceptibly make you look better.

 

Which is why I was so pleased when over supper, a friend remarked my skin was looking good – now that’s the kind of compliment you do want. Little did she know it was all down to a triple whammy of products that anyone can copy: a sheer, illuminating tinted moisturiser (Smashbox’s is a great discovery), some strategically daubed foundation on imperfections (thank you MyFace), and a truly flattering bronzer – this Origins one is great for pale skin that wants to look anything but pallid.
