How to get that fresh look | Funmi Fetto

Fresh. It’s a word that makes me roll my eyes because in beauty it’s overused to the point of meaninglessness. This Moschino SS21 look, however, is properly, beautifully fresh. And, thanks to the winged eye, grown-up. You’ll need a high-quality foundation, one that gives you a “best skin ever” finish. Also essential is an easy-to-use liquid eyeliner that delivers punchy pigment and won’t lose its vigour. Make sure your blush goes on the apples of your cheeks, and, for lips, start with a balm then follow with a teeny stain of lipstick. The result? Fresh.

I can’t do without… Give your curls an elastic bounce with this super hair serum

For a long time, the marketing from hair brands has insinuated that everybody has straight hair or should desire to have it. Rather than celebrating curls and coils, they put out products – and subliminal messaging – to encourage you to get rid of it. Hence many hair ranges on the market ignore anyone with a curl pattern. There are, however, some brands that have widened their audience and provide innovative products that don’t just target straight hair – brands such as Davines. For anyone with curly or coily hair, their Love Curl shampoo and conditioner is a must. It smooths curls, gives them glorious definition and leaves them looking incredibly shiny. And the scent… Put it this way you will have the best-smelling hair ever. This Curl Building Serum is not officially part of their Love Curl range, but it absolutely complements it. If your curls are prone to frizz and brittleness, this should be on your radar. It increases moisture and gives curls more elasticity (they’ll have better ‘spring’). I’ve been using it recently, particularly over what’s seemed like endless days of rain, and it has made all the difference. I’d say it is ideal as a leave-in styling conditioner after your wash routine, but using it daily won’t weigh your hair down or leave you with the dreaded buildup. We all want products that work – and with salons closed, that feels even more necessary. So I highly recommend this. Davines Curl Building Serum, £18,
