Look smart now | August 2014

1. Blush on

All you need to get instantly pretty is a sheer swipe of blush. It’s easy to find the right shade if you look for one that mimics the colour of your cheeks when you are flushed or exercising. Make sure you blend well for a youthful natural look, and keep the rest of your makeup light and simple.

3. Borrow from the boys

Get ready for back to school in the newest version of the classic varsity jacket. Look for a longer length and sporty touches like leather sleeves and snappy hardware.
