It helps create the appearance of statuesque, long limbs, while on the face it does an incredible job of radiating health and hiding under-eye shadows.

- Apply moisturiser over the skin, paying close attention to the elbows, knees and ankles. Then, take a rich, deep self-tan – He-Shi Dark Foaming Mousse, £27, is brilliant – and smooth onto the skin with a mitt in short, sharp strokes.
- A self-tan evens out the skintone so it’s wise to forego foundation and opt for concealer for any blemishes. Dust the T-zone with translucent finishing powder such as Invisible Zinc Invisible Staying Powder, £22, to avoid looking shiny.
- Sweep a warm, matte bronzer, like Nars Laguna Bronzing Powder, £24, down the nose, under and across the cheekbones and forehead.
- Olive skin is perfect with rose gold, terracotta or rust-coloured cream eyeshadows such as Benefit Creaseless Cream Eye Shadow in Busy Signal, £14. Smear it across your entire lid and up to your brow, blending with a soft brush.
