Mood boost: Candy Fix

Frederic Letailleur, European Make-up Artist for Yves Saint Laurent, exclusively tells Psychologies how to make the most of the new collection "Candy Face" during the winter months

by Psychologies

'Following long exposure to the cool light of winter, our skin can lack glow and radiance. Embracing bold colours can not only make you feel more cheerful but also brighten a sallow complexion. Radiant textures bring light to the face and lift dull looking skin, while a metallic pastel shades like the Ombres 5 Lumieres in shade No13, £39.50 (exclusive to House of Fraser) enhance eyes and create more impact than dark, winter tones. 

'Pastel pinks and ice blues are ideal for a fair skin tones and create a really soft and gentle look,which is even more striking when teamed with a blue mascara.

'The key to looking fresh in winter is to slick on a splash of bright glossy lip colour - strawberry and raspberry tones brighten complexions in any season, so try mixing Volupte Sheer Candy No9 Cool Guava and No10 Tangy Mandarin, £23.50 each together to create the ultimate fruity shade.'

Candy Face is available in stores nationwide on 26th December 2011.
