Move over Gwynnie, there’s a new lifestyle guru in town. The multi-talented model, author and chef Sophie Dahl has just launched a brand new lifestyle website: At The Kitchen Table With Sophie Dahl And Friends. With sections on Food, Fashion, Beauty, Words and Life, the website promises a peek into the things that make Sophie and her diverse network of friends tick – from great British bolt holes and old-fashioned typewriters to marshmallows and chocolate Guinness cake (something we can’t quite imagine appearing on the pages of Goop).

Despite juggling her career, fame, motherhood and now this latest venture, fresh-faced Sophie somehow manages to look as if she’s getting at least 10 hours sleep per night (by the laws of physics, we are sure this cannot possibly be the case). And she’s let us in on how: with a little help from make-up magician, and Grazia fave, Lisa Eldridge.

Yep that’s right – the ‘wondrous’ Lisa (as Sophie describes her) is responsible for Sophie’s natural glow, and the duo have been kind enough to film this tutorial so that we can all get in on the bare-faced act, too. Happy Friday indeed.

Watch Lisa in action in the video tutorial below, and scroll down for some exclusive tips on how to get the look…

Lisa Eldridge’s Top Three Tips For Sprucing Up A Tired Face

  1. Concealer is King – but it has to be the right type and the right colour. If it’s too white it will look ashy and can actually accentuate tired looking eyes. Warmer tones will help to contract blue and purple under the eyes. Mix a light reflective concealer with a small amount of a more opaque, high coverage one. Blend a thin layer wherever you are darkest but don't over-do it. Thin, well blended layers will prevent creasing, last longer and look more natural whilst still covering darkness.

  2. Blusher is Queen – a little blusher goes a long way. Start slowly and build up; it’s easier to add than take away. Cream textures work well for daytime as their luminous finish will look fresh and natural on the skin.

  3. Curl your eyelashes and always apply mascara. It’s a sure fire way to open your eyes quickly.
