- IDS Diamond Dust Perfector, $43.50
Use this complexion booster on its own or over foundation. It is said to instantly blur out fine lines and other skin flaws, even out skin tone and give your complexion a more youthful look. The formula reportedly has special micron- sized particles that settle into fine lines and wrinkles, and give off a blue glow which is believed to improve the appearance of your skin.
This has anti-caking and moisture- absorbing silica as its key ingredient, so it does double duty as a make-up base powder under liquid foundation and a mattifying finishing powder ideal for oily skin. It is said to give skin a smoother look and minimise the appearance of enlarged pores and fine lines.
This lightweight, super-fine powder has a smooth texture and glides on skin effortlessly. It uses specially coated pigments that are said to give skin a natural radiant finish.
Fans of this make-up-setting gel have been known to stash it in their handbags for quick mid-day touch- ups, even under the eyes to perk up day-old concealer. Used as a refresher, Secret Finish is said to make skin look fresh and glowing just before a date or an evening function.
Dubbed a hybrid skincare product, this is said to prevent and correct dark spots while also giving skin a more luminous touch. If you prefer light coverage, you can use it on its own. The SPF is a bonus too.
After applying make-up, spray this light mist on your face and an invisible film will coat your skin to seal in make-up. The film is said to protect both your make-up and your skin from external aggressors such as pollutants and climate changes.
This make-up enhancer is an unusual oil format. But do not worry about it leaving a sticky, greasy sensation on your skin. Instead, the almost scentless oil is light and absorbs quickly. Mix a little into liquid foundation to make it easier to blend.
