2020欧洲杯足球即时比分Isn’t it refreshing when models smile? Even better, when models reflect the diverse range of ages and characteristics of the (largely female)  audiences for the clothes and make-up? Mouchette Bell, the star of our beauty shoot, is one of the models changing the face of catwalks.

At London Fashion Week, she walked in Emilia Wickstead’s show, wearing one of the strongest looks in the collection: a caramel knit shirt with coordinating pencil skirt, a handbag swinging from the crook of her elbow. And then she appeared at the presentation of the Queen Elizabeth II award for British Design to Alighieri designer Rosh Mahtani. She’s just one example of the way designers are normalising diversity on the runway, from height and body shape to age.

‘I’m so grateful to be modelling again,’ says the model turned stylist and fashion-editor, turned model again (she prefers not to reveal her exact age). ‘For too long, we’ve ignored women of different  races, women who are voluptuous or older… it’s good for society to be included, and it’s good for business. As humans we like to put everyone in a box, and I never fit in the box.’ 

A self-described ‘Afro-Celt’ (her mother is Irish and father is Nigerian), Mouchette first modelled in the 1980s, when she was ‘young and quite insecure’, appearing in the likes of Italian Vogue. A career on the other side of the camera at fashion magazines followed, but it was only after she appeared in a show for Bath University three years ago that modelling came knocking again – and she’s since done cover stories and campaigns for the likes of Clarins, Sephora and Arket. 

A fan of experimenting with beauty products, she’s thrilled to see the old boundaries disappearing. ‘That’s what I love about make-up: it has nothing to do with age, it’s about what suits you. I’m all for being dramatic with something like a strong lip,’ she says. ‘And the fact that fashion is  including older people will affect how people perceive them – just to be seen as happy is such a positive influence.’ Amen to that.

From pink eyeshadow to orange lips, this season’s life-affirming make-up trends are surprisingly ageless. Chanel’s make-up artist,  Zoe Taylor, shows you how.

Whatever make-up trend inspires you, radiant, hydrated skin is the foundation of agelessness. Zoe recommends blending a drop of oil into your moisturiser for an added glow. Try, with After skincare, apply a cream blush, such as , with your fingertips on to the apples of the cheeks and blend outwards towards the temple (a nifty, lifting trick).

Give red lipstick a spring twist by pairing it with graphic eyeliner, either applied traditionally or in painterly strokes as seen here. Skin is left bare with nothing more than ,  to create a natural glow. Zoe suggests prepping  lips using a lip liner over the entire lip surface first, to ensure longevity  of the lipstick.
