With the party season in mind ID is going to give you a simple and fresh make-up tutorial throughout December to help you on those days when you’re feeling under the weather and a ‘pick me up’ is just what you need. By applying these techniques and product choices your make up will last longer and your skin will look brighter. These simple steps can make your makeup routine less of a chore and more of a pleasure. Make up can be so versatile and fun to use when you let it be!


When your skin is dry and lacking in vitality, moisture is what you need, avoid matifying powder based products at this stage as this can make you skin look dull. Once your skin is prepped with your moisturizer apply UV Under Base mousse spf 30, £29.00 by Shu Uemura to even out your complexion, reduce redness, minimize the appearance of pores and add a subtle radiance. This product feels so silky and light on the skin and prepares the face for a flawless complexion. To apply this product you can use your fingers or a synthetic brush using downward strokes. To hide those small imperfections try ‘Circle Delete, £23.00 by Jane Iredale’ I love this product for its staying power and choice of colour. Use feather light strokes concentrating solely on the areas of concern. Foundation is not always essential for this look, if you need that extra coverage Sheer Glow NARS Foundation, £29.95 is beautiful and best to be applied with your fingers.
