HELLO, PETAL

Fresh, rosy faces are the hottest look for summer. ‘No make-up make-up with a hint of pink is one look all my clients beg me for tips and secrets on,’ says Dolce & Gabbana’s international make-up artist Christian McCulloch, who worked on this shoot with Dolce & Gabbana’s spokesmodel Kate King. ‘And it suits everyone.’

HOW TO ‘Try a three-step-cheek look to add dimension to the face. Dust bronzer over your forehead, close to the hairline, tops of the cheekbones and under the jaw for shadow,’ says McCulloch. Use YSL Beauté Les Sahariennes Bronzing Stones in No.1 Sunstone, £35, and Giorgio Armani’s Blender Brush, £60, to create this look. ‘Add a flush of Dolce & Gabbana’s Luminous Cheek Colour in Caramel, £34, on the apples of the cheeks and finish by applying Dolce & Gabbana Glow Illuminating Powder in Eva, £38, on the outer cheekbones,’ he says. Slick on Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Matte Lipstick in Dolce Mamma, £29, for a natural, rose-tinged smile. Bra, Dolce & Gabbana

PERFECT POUT

Hot pink can look a little doll-esque, but McCulloch explains how to work the trend: ‘Hot-toned Schiaparelli pink is chic, rather than too Barbie,’ he says. ‘Keep the rest of your make-up neutral, except for this glam pop of colour. It’s like treating your make-up as an accessory.’
