The best cheek and lip colours: A subtle flush of colour is all you need to keep things perky
When heading off for another day at the coalface, it can be tempting to lug around half the contents of a beauty counter in your handbag just in case, but a subtle flush of colour on cheeks and lips is usually all you need to keep things perky when you feel yourself beginning to flag.
If you don't have the luxury of a tea trolley to provide a medicinal cream bun and a cup of builder's, keep one of these multi-taskers on hand to combat the dreaded 4pm slump in style.
