Liquid Assets For A Head To Toe Glow

HOW do some celebrities manage to look like they’ve just stepped off the boat from St Tropez? Sure, you can fake that enviable sun-kissed look easily by sweeping on a highlighter and bronzer, but if it’s a more authentic radiance you’re after, these are your glow-tos. Some of these help soothe and smooth, others shine up and polish for the ultimate glow. Lacklustre skin has no place here.

I always knew I would work in magazines, as I grew up in publishing (my parents are publishers). When I’m not writing beauty or following my passion for make-up, I can be found reading and spending time with family and friends. I am also a tea-lover
