NEW! Collection 2000 Shimmer Shades

I'm a massive fan of shimmer palettes. From Bobbi Brown's Shimmer Brick to the more modestly-priced George Shimmer Me! Palette, they inject your complexion with an instant hit of health. Collection 2000's new Shimmer Shades, £3.99, are no exception. Whether it's a rosy flush you're after (in which case the pink-based Blushalicious is the one for you), or a post-holiday glow (try the bronze Way to Glow palette), the palettes can be applied as an all-over glow, or used individually, the shades flatter eyes and cheekbones.

As Collection 2000 makeup artist, Athena Skouvakis says, 'For a healthy sunkissed look, work product from all four colour cubes into a big bronzing brush and apply to the face and neck, blending thoroughly. To highlight the cheekbones, brow or forehead, sweep a single shade across the area with a blusher brush. Sculpt and contour the face for a look that will take you from dusk to dawn.'

The palettes go on sale from 9th June in Superdrug, Sx.
