Hannah's Top Tip 1:

Good makeup is all about good skin, so prep your complexion with hydrating, nourishing formulas. On the night, Hannah used Advanced Night Repair Serum, Revitalizing Supreme+ Youth Power Creme and Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Gel-Creme, taking the time to massage each formula into the model’s skin.

Hannah's Top Tip 2:

The beauty of Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10? Its versatility. Customise your Double Wear coverage by mixing it with Advanced Night Repair Serum or Revitalizing Supreme+ Youth Power Creme. This will give your base a lighter, glowier finish – perfect for ‘no makeup makeup’ days.

Hannah's Top Tip 3:

This one’s for the blusher and bronzer fans: swirl your brush into your blusher or bronzer, then tap it into the centre of your hand before applying. This removes any excess product and ensures the remaining pigment is evenly distributed for a seamless, natural-looking blend.

Hooded eyes? Hannah’s got you covered. Look down while applying your favourite Estée Lauder mascara or angle your mirror downwards – doing this means you’ll avoid any pesky mascara marks on your eyelids.
