Begin by smoothing on with your fingers Cosmetics A la carte Rose Dew (£35) over the face. Buff in Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick (£29) and conceal any blemish with Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer. Set this with Nars Cosmetics Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder (£25) for longevity. On the eyes, pat on MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre (£19) all over the lid as a base. Using Estee Lauder’s Pure Colour Instant Intense Eyeshadow trio in Gilded Chocolates (£28). Sweep the champagne shade on the middle of the lids, the gold on the inner corners and the darkest shade at the outer corners. Apply eyeliner and lashings of mascara. Finish off with a nude beige lipstick like Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick Matte Cameral (£16) in to keep the intensity on the eyes.
The Ultimate Glam
Start by applying a black gel liner as a base all over the eyelids blending the edges out. Using Estee Lauders Pure Colour five Colour Eyeshadow Palette in Film Noir (£36), apply the darkest shade at the corners and blend out. Add the shade to the lower lids as well. Pat on the mid tone shade on the lid and to make the eyes pop apply a golden colour to the inner corners of the eyes. Line the eyes heavily and for even more intensity apply some strip lashes. Pair this look with red lipstick that has a hint of orange. I love MAC Lady danger (£15.50) and pat on a clear gloss for a va va voom effect.
Using NYX jumbo pencil in black bean (£5), apply all over the lid up to the crease. From Smashbox full exposure palette (£37), pat on the black shade at the outer corners and lower lids, the silver shade at the middle of the lid and the bronze shade at the inner corners.Line the eyes and apply loads of mascara. Add definition to the face by contouring under the cheekbones using Nars Cosmetics Contour Blush in Gienah (£30). On the lips start with NYX slim lip pencil in pinky (£3.50) and pat on a glossy pink gloss with a hint of glitter like Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss (£18).
Pat on Estee lauder Pure Colour stay on shadow paint in Halo (£20) and apply a deeper shade in the crease for a subtle definition. Line the eyes heavily with a kohl pencil and apply strip lashes for instant glam. Line lips with Lilalli cosmetics lip liner in Greed (£10) and apply Lilalli Lip collision in Isabella (£15) a beautiful Nude pinky brown lip shade. Finish the look with a clear golden gloss for a sultry pout.
