An ongoing series on how to do everything from pop a spot to how to achieve the perfect feline flick. From the gross to the glamorous, follow our simple beauty guide.

Tidy cuticles

Having perfectly manicured talons starts with cuticle care, something a lot of us often forget or neglect. Take 10 minutes every week to get your cuticles ship shape.

Apply a cuticle gel to the base of nails and massage in. Leave for five minutes.

Gently push back your cuticles on all sides with an orange cuticle stick.

Wipe clean with warm, soapy after and a cotton pad.

Massage in cuticle cream.

Repeat weekly.

Lived in make-up

Lived in make-up is always fashionable, whether it’s being rocked on catwalks or celebs like Kate Moss are pulling it off. It doesn’t actually require you to sleep in your make-up, but rather a few dabs of emollient lotion will do the trick.

Apply eye make-up as usual.

Dab an emollient lotion over the top with your fingertips.

Reapply make-up over the top.

Do the dew

Dewy, glowing skin? Yes please? The perfect look for any season.

Banish dark circles with concealer, by dabbing on the area.

Apply tinted moisturiser or light foundation.

Dust translucent powder down the centre of the forehead, under the eyes and on the tip of the nose to stop shine.

Add highlighter to cheekbones, temples and your Cupid’s bow. Buff in with a clean brush.
