Fashion: It's all about Mii
New make-up brand Mii launched in March to the sound of gasps from beauty fans. Blending the expertise of trained professionals with the needs of salon and spa devotees – who were questioned rigorously during the development stages – the line incorporates all the classic basics needed to create a flawless but natural look. One of the heroes of the line is the Luminous Tinted Moisturiser, which contains an SPF15, and, brilliantly, negates the need for heavy foundation during the clammy season. £16.50, Mii, 0845 217 1360
