Catwalk to Counter: Clarins

Matte fans, put down that powder puff; SS14 is the season for fresh, luminous skin. Silky, never shiny, complexions had a radiant, healthy glow with natural flushed cheeks at Donna Karan, Dolce & Gabbana and Ralph Lauren. Make-Up Artist, Lucy McClure showed our Beauty Writer, Sarah Rose Edwards, how to create this pretty, seasonal trend at the Clarins counter in-store at Harrods.
