CHEEK TO CHEEK
Sunday 10 August 1997
To achieve a Nineties version of the classically "groomed" face, keep the skin looking modern by avoiding over-powdering. Create a slight definition around the eyes, but keep the main focus on the eyebrows. Most importantly, keep the lips soft by applying lipstick straight from the stick rather than using a lip-liner or brush.

For instant, Eighties-style glamour, apply eyeshadow with a big brush across the eyelid, but don't contour, blend or highlight. Apply blusher to the apples of the cheeks only and wear a slick of lip-gloss over lipstick.

Create a bold impact by wearing a block of colour from lashline to brow. Choose a colour strong enough so that lipstick and mascara are unnecessary.

For the "no make-up" look, start with a sheer base, then apply blusher where the sun would catch your face. Finish with a sheer lip-colour to create a natural glow.
