How to make

your face look

brighter, fresher

and more youthful

Whisper it quietly - what really ages our faces isn’t actually wrinkles, it’s the loss of colour, definition and contrast in our eyes, eyebrows, cheeks and lips.

The good news is that it's easy and quick to restore all that colour and definition with the right makeup!  In this video I show you simple techniques to brighten your face, to restore definition to your features, to bring back colour and to create a more youthful glow.

Step 1 

Apply Continuous Cover Foundation using a Foundation brush 3. Our foundation has great coverage without looking heavy. Skin still looks like skin, only with blemishes, unevenness and age spots reduced.

Add some Instant Bright Highlight to the brow bone and top of the cheek bones. This brings subtle light and contouring to the face, and really helps to bring the face to life.

Step 3

Apply Cover to Cover Concealer applied with Brush 4 to cover up dark under eye circles, bluish areas at the corner of the eyes or any redness around the nose. It’s also great at covering up age spots or thread veins on the cheeks.

"The concealer is fantastic"

I was so pleased I had taken the plunge - the concealer is fantastic and has great staying power. I love the customer service and returns policy. I will definitely be changing over once all my other make up has been used. Thank you LFF!


"My favourite foundation!"

Just received my fourth order of this fabulous foundation! I love the dewy appearance it gives my skin. I've used many different types of foundation over the years and it's taken me over 55 years to discover one which does not cause irritation or dreaded spots. Shades No 1 and 2 are perfect for my colouring.


"Fabulous Blush"

This blush really lives up to its name. It has a lovely texture and gives the face a glow and much needed pop of colour. I found it long lasting and the peach cream is a lovely shade which suits my warm complexion.
