Take one clever little gadget and a simple beauty routine to get your radiant party glow on.

This is a Marie Claire Advertorial

Cleanse, epilate, exfoliate For top-notch prep, we've found a clever little investment that pays dividends. Braun Face, an epilator and cleansing brush in one eliminates pesky facial hair from the root 200 times faster and more thoroughly than tweezing. But that's not all…pop on the exfoliating brush head, apply a little cleanser and you'll get a fabulous skin-fresh clean that'll leave your complexion truly glowing. Jessica Alba swears by it and what works for her works for us!

Moisturise Dial up your skincare for winter by adding a few drops of face oil to your foundation and treat skin to a DIY facial by applying a nourishing sheet mask every two weeks. Switching your coffee in the morning for a green smoothie will also help brighten, oxygenate and hydrate skin. Feeling virtuous yet?

Protect You might not feel there's even a hint of sun in those wintry skies but your skin still needs protection against daily UV exposure to combat signs of ageing. So wear a moisturiser with an SPF of at least 30 every day, even if you're inside all day or it's cloudy outdoors. Your 40-year-old self will thank you for it.

Primer For photo-ready, luminous skin, an illuminating primer is your new best friend. The best kinds have tiny light-reflecting particles to give skin a natural-looking, dewy complexion but the key is to find one that suits your specific skin type. Voilå – now you've got a perfect canvas for those AW15 looks.
