Show the world your healthy, radiant glow | Funmi Fetto

Apparently 2021 is the year that “health signalling” comes into its own. This is the trend where people broadcast – by posting images of organic produce or Peloton – just how healthy they are. I care little for social media fads, but would happily adopt this health-radiating look (Mark Fast SS21). For watercolour eyes, dampen brush (or finger) with water, dip in colour and swish across lids. Balance with mascara, wake skin up with highlighter and add a rosy hue to lips.

I can’t live without… A candle with the enduring smell of glamorous nostalgia

In this time when our liberty to move around and experience scents we long took for granted (I miss the aroma of old books in libraries) is restricted, the transporting power of fragrance can’t be underestimated. The best will take you to another place and time – whether imagined or real. Like this candle from sustainable fragrance brand Floral Street. The name Lipstick immediately resonated – I love a bright lipstick. Our enforced hibernation, however, and the face covering we now adorn as a necessary accessory, means painted lips are rarely seen, and the lipstick candle was a stark reminder. Then I smelled it and suddenly this combination of vanilla, leather, peach and magnolia threw me back in time to the scent of my mother’s vast collection of lipsticks. Back to the days when lipsticks were fragrant, pretty, powdery-smelling things that epitomised a certain glamour and sophistication. As a young girl I looked at these striking bullets and dreamed of all the magic that would take place once I swiped them across my lips. Of course, so many of my ideas around lipstick were pure fantasy, but it gave me joy then and recalling them via this candle gives me joy now. Seeing where we are at the moment, I’d say that a little bit of lipstick-induced nostalgia and fantasy isn’t such a bad thing. Floral Street Lipstick Candle, £28,
