A four-step skincare routine that gives a natural glow, every day

For a flawless make-up base, begin with Coola's Dawn Patrol Classic Primer (HK$495/30ml), which is organic and contains SPF30. Unlike other colour-correcting primers, this one is transparent and works for all skin tones and types. The formula smoothens the skin, preparing it for foundation.

Next step, apply Giorgio Armani's Face Fabric (HK$470/40ml). The foundation has a mousse-to-powder matte formula, which gives it a natural-looking finish. While it does not offer high coverage, it feels weightless and comfortable and lasts pretty much the whole day.

To seal your make-up, press Hourglass' Veil Translucent Setting Powder (HK$460/10.5 grams) onto your skin. Unlike most loose powders, it does not contain talc, a clay mineral that helps absorb moisture but also gives a chalky appearance. Even generous applications will not settle into fine lines or look cakey.

As a final touch, dust Guerlain's New Terracotta Light (HK$430/10 grams) over your cheeks and near your hairline. It is a bronzer mixed with blush that contains fine pearl articles. The faint colour and slight sheen give skin a warm glow.
