Great summer make-up requires two things: a bright pop of colour and a radiant, fresh face, which is exactly why the make-up at Giles' spring/summer 2013 show is so desirable right now.
To recreate the understatedly glamorous look, begin with the complexion. The key is to make it appear as though you've applied a generous layer of moisturiser with hardly any foundation on top.
To cheat the look in one easy step, massage the fabulous Hydra Floral Multi-Protection BB Cream by Decléor (£29, decleor.co.uk ) into your skin.
Use concealer if and where it is needed, then apply Illamasqua's Gleam highlighting balm in Aurora (£18, illamasqua.com ) down the bridge of your nose and in a V shape around your eyes.
Finally, for that much-needed pop of colour, try Shu Uemura's Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte lipstick in shade 375 (£19, shuuemura.co.uk ). It is an incredibly intense colour hit with a velvety-soft finish - exactly what a good lipstick should be.
