Less is more with make-up for 2020. So first, get your skin in top condition with a nurturing facial. Check out what Sisley Paris has to offer at Hoopers Harrogate, Browns York and Harvey Nichols Leeds - the booking fee is sometimes redeemable against product, so it’s a cost-effective way to have both a luxury treatment and a product at the same time. You could ask for a mini make-up make-over after to get expert tips on new products that will update your look in a way that works for you. Launching on February 1 is Sisley Phyto Hydra Teint, a tinted moisturiser combining nourishing care with illuminating glow and colour for a totally fresh and natural look.
