We love to switch up our makeup from time to time but, when it comes down to it, the most important part of any beauty look is .
So we weren't surprised when Arabella Preston, the Duchess of Cambridge's makeup artist, revealed that her top beauty tip focused on creating a flawless complexion. Speaking to The Cut, Preston revealed, "It's all about the flannel." Referring to it as "quite necessary," she explained that a flannel (which is British for a washcloth) is an essential part of any skincare routine, as it helps ensure the face is cleaned properly.
When even professional photography and lighting can't disguise the bags under your eyes. Oh dear, I really have got to learn how to sleep before big work events. Any tips?? In general I lose a good 3 nights sleep completely unnecessarily in the run-up just from worrying on about nothing in particular. Still, I was able to hide behind swishy @drybylondon @lisarobynfenton hair. Thanks lovelies ????
Preston is actually referring to washcloths like muslin cloths ($8 for 10, amazon.com), as these have a host of benefits for the skin. As well as being gentler than a cleansing brush, the correct washcloth allows you to properly remove make-up and dirt from the skin while providing gentle exfoliation.
Judging from the beautiful makeup looks Preston's created for the Duchess in the past, we'll definitely be following this advice.
