3. SCENTS OF PLACE
Tom Ford’s Mandarino di Amalifi pays homage to the long term summer stomping ground of the glitterati taking its que from the night-blooming flora and kitchen garden staples of the region such as mint and thyme. Bellissimo!
4. FAR FROM VANILLA
The only cream you’ll love more than the gelato variety this summer is Cream Eye Shadow in Runway by Tom Ford. Intensely pigmented but with an irresistible crease-free glow. This shade marries well with a kohl liner such as Oeil Velour Velvet Eye Definer by Christian Louboutin for a more dramatic look that will last all day.

6. CRAYON STAY-ON
Matte finish lipsticks are soon to be monopolising our make-up bags but finding a type that doesn’t crease and create a nasty dry effect is tough work. Thankfully Laura Mercier’s Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick range of 24 vivid shades has answered our prayers.

7. PLUMP IT UP
Dior’s Capture Youth Plump Filler is the product that should be front and centre of your post-winter repair regime. Here’s the science bit - naturally derived hyaluronic acid molecules of different molecular weights help to rehydrate skin on the surface to improve the cutaneous substance.
