To celebrate the release of Bourjois City Radiance Foundation and Radiance Reveal Concealer, we caught up with Gabrielle Stérin, beauty writer at Grazia France,to get her top tips for achieving the ultimate fresh-faced beauty look. Because as a beauty editor working in one of the biggest fashion capitals in the world, your beauty regime needs to sit pretty near the top of your to-do list!

Here are her top tips!

  1. Exfoliate twice a week to slay away the dead skin cells that dull the complexion.

  2. Apply skincare 20 minutes before make-up – this allows it to soak in to create the best canvas.

  3. Use a great primer (like Bourjois Happy Light Serum Primer) before foundation.

  4. Apply foundation in very sheer layers starting at the centre of the face.

  5. Soft-focus smoky eyes are big news this season. Swap black and grey for taupe and minky hues and buff sheer layers onto the eyelid to avoid any hard lines. Bourjois Smoky Stories Quad is ideal.

  6. Tired face? Pat Bourjois Aqua Blush low on the cheekbone with fingertips for an outdoorsy flush.It provides 12 hours of moisturisation too!

  7. Heading out after work? For an instant glamour hit, swipe on the highly pigmented matte Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick.

  8. Always double-cleanse your face at the end of the day to remove all traces of make-up and dirt
