For daytime looks kick off with the basics … a great concealer, perfect eyebrows and flattering lashes. Then use shades of nudes and browns, maybe a soft pink, for your eyes. Grab your mask and you’re good to go. If you need to jazz it up a little, add some Provocative, Masterpiece, Bold, Dramatic, Passionate … all eye-catching shades from this useful palette.

Then grab a trio of essentials. The Catrice Brow Comb Pro Micro Pen in Soft Brown has a narrow triple tip for gorgeous, thick eyebrows (plus it’s vegan, so brownie points, R83.95).

And last – but never ever least – smudge proof, volumising, defining mascara … we use Essence Bye Bye Panda Eyes mascara … the oil-free, vegan formula not only coats the lashes in black, but also wraps itself around the fine hairs like a soft film. It lasts all day and can even withstand sweat and tears. It doesn’t clump or crumble and can easily be removed with warm water … what’s not to love? R83.95
