The three best...cheek stains

Posie Tint RRP €33.50 Benefit, available nationwide

Arguably a more universally flattering colour than its sister Benetint, it gives the most gorgeously natural but long-lasting flush.

The secret to getting the best out of it is to work in fast but gentle circular motions, as it dries very quickly.

Pinch your Cheeks, €19 Origins, available at Arnotts

Available in three shades, this light, water-based product is so easy to work with and gives a healthy pinkish glow to the cheeks, far more natural than any powder blush could ever achieve.

Cheekmate, €11 Soap & Glory, in selected Boots stores nationwide

Because it's more pigmented than most other cheeks tints, the smallest amount of product is needed.

Gel in texture, it's easy to blend and not at all greasy.

*Product of the week

Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector, €17 Clarins, available in department stores nationwide

The perfect combo of lip gloss and balm, this formula, which is available in three shades, isn't at all sticky and feels amazingly hydrating.

I couldn't get over how smooth and plump it made my lips look. Perfect for holidays.

*star buy

Transparent Lip Fix, €9.25 Isadora, available in pharmacies nationwide and selected Debenhams stores

I don't usually wear lip liner because, no matter how good a colour match it is, it looks overdrawn and dated, but this little piece of genius does all the things you would want from a lipliner – stops your lipstick bleeding, smudging and flaking – while remaining entirely transparent.
