Bright Eye Duo, £22 | MakeTheMake

This vitamin E illuminating balm and a hyaluronic gloss pot duo are best used together to create fresher, more radiant under eye. Start by applying the illuminating balm first – the pearlescent tone will cancel out any harsh, dark tones – before using the concealer to add some coverage. Finally, use a finely milled powder to set everything in place. The best bit? The illuminating balm doubles up as a highlighter to add glow to your cheekbones.

Working to conceal, correct and highlight, this is a great all-rounder.
