Use a concealer
If you've been worrying about age catching up with you in the year gone by, start using a concealer. It camouflages fine lines around the eyes and mouth. If you've been treating your skin well, just a dab of concealer, plus a dusting of loose powder, will suffice. Another great tool: the new high-tech foundations that control oil production in oily areas, moisturise dry patches and give a satin-smooth finish.
My picks: Beauty Flash by Clarins, which you can use before make-up and top it up with Ideal Balance foundation by Lancome.
