Here Kitty gives her pro tips for camera-ready gorgeousness!

Find a primer – they are a real asset for giving makeup staying power but they are all different so try a few to find the right one

Foundation always requires a bit of effort – ask for samples form beauty counters and try them all until you get it right.

Mature skins need light texture foundation – matte finish will gather in the skin’s creases and look ageing.

Invest in a fixing spray – it’s like (a gentle) hairspray for the face and keeps everything in place – very good for big events when you want your makeup to last. I use Urban Decay’s Skindinavia.

Powder is a must but they can be chalky – my favourite is Mac Mineralise which gives a real soft focus effect that softens pores and lines.

On older skin make sure that you use a primer on the eyelids to help eyeshadow stay put without creasing. I like Mac Paintpots.

Brows! Everyone should put something on their brows! A good brow transformation can be like an instant facelift. Find a pencil/brush combo that is your natural colour and gently fill in brows where needed. Keep it natural though.
