Brows and lashes

Go for groomed brows and “soft lashes defined with a little spike for a doll-like effect”, says Stanislaus. Try Sisley Phyto Sourcils Design on your brows, and L’Oréal Paris Paradise Mascara on your lashes.

Lips

Think creamy mattes in peach and nude (prep with a lip balm first to ensure your pout is in peak condition). For your lip colour, try Maybelline New York Color Sensational Inti-Matte Nudes Lipstick in Peach Buff.
