Jemma Kidd’s top tips for every women’s beauty woes


Jemma KiddJemma Kidd is back on your screens today at 4pm with her professional, multi-functional make-up. She has a wealth of make-up knowledge and expertise and here she tackles some of the common make-up malfunctions we suffer in the summer months.

Disguise tired eyes
Every woman suffers from dark eyes at some point. To disguise them, apply a little yellow-based concealer under the eyes where shadows will be darker and pat it to diffuse.

Neutralise any redness by gently patting a little eye primer over the eyelids, then, using a flesh-toned eyeliner pencil, draw along the inner rim of the lower lids to make eyes appear brighter. Add a touch of highlighter to the inner corners of the eyes to make them sparkle.

Combat chapped lips
If you have chapped lips, apply lip balm and after a few minutes massage gently with a soft toothbrush or flannel. Alternatively, exfoliate gently with a sugar-based lip scrub to remove any flaky skin then apply lip balm generously. Look out for lipgloss with added vitamin E to protect lips whilst adding shine.

Look slimmer in an instant
The opposite of highlighting, where a lighter colour is used to draw out features or bring them forward, contouring uses a darker colour to make features recede. Contouring can add definition to the face and subtly alter its shape.

To make a round face appear slimmer and more elongated, use an oval-headed cheek brush to apply a matte bronzer in the hollows of your cheeks. Think of a tadpole shape - the ‘head’ in the hollow under the apple of the cheek, the ‘tail’ blending to nothing towards the hairline.

Conceal weepy peepers
During the summer months allergies can play havoc with your make-up, making your mascara run and leaving the eye area red and irritated. For staying power switch to a waterproof mascara or lash tint, which will hold up against wind, rain and snow, then apply a little yellow-based concealer over your lids and at the corner of your eyes to neutralise any redness.

Prevent dry, scaly skin
Temperature extremes deprive the skin of moisture, slowing down the cell renewal process leaving a dry, flaky surface. You can restore radiance to skin in the winter months by increasing hydration. For an intensive moisture boost, apply a hydrating serum underneath your daily moisturiser and ensure your foundation is ultra moisturising.
