Never brushed shoulders with a beauty editor? They’re those mystic writer types with extensive knowledge on BB cream, birch sap (yeah, that’s a thing), blow-drys and everything in between. Perennial cool girl Alyx Gorman (AKA, ed of brand-new Aussie health and beauty site, The Glow) shares her make-up philosophy and fave products (all of which are available below!) with us, right in time for the weekend. Take it away, A!

'My approach to beauty is to play up my pale. I love highlighting, and use neutral, pink and peachy colours for my eyes and cheeks. Then I add huge lashes, defined brows and sometimes a slick of liquid eyeliner or a splash of dark lipstick to give my look a bit of danger. I'm addicted to cleansing with a Foreo brush. It looks a little rude, but it's amazing. And I'm a big advocate of doubling up on SPF – in your moisturiser and again in your foundation or BB cream.'

Alyx wears the Needle and Thread Wild Flower Dress, on sale now!
