Using Sleek MakeUp i Divine Eye Shadow Palette (£7.99), apply the yellow shadow all over lid, add the orange hue below the brow and contrast with the rich blue shadow on the lower lid. Finish off the eyes with Lets Go Lashes in Stripe Lash Temptress (£6.50) to make them stand out. Pair this with a gorgeous pink lipstick like M.A.C Candy Yum Yum (£14) for the wow factor.
The colour orange looks amazing on dark skin so start by creating a beautiful base with Clinique Superprimer Face Primer – Colour Corrects Dullness (£20). Next buff Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick in Chestnut (£28) and set with Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Pressed Powder in Warm Chestnut (£25). Finally add Morange Lipstick by M.A.C (£14) and Nars Cosmetics Blush in Taj Mahal (£21.50) on cheeks for beautiful lips and sun-kissed cheeks.
Keep it trendy by leaving the eyelid bare and brushing a purple eyeshadow like M.A.C Eyeshadow in Stars N’ Rockets (£12.50) over the eye crease. Line bottom lids with Black Up Cosmetics Kohl Pencil in NO3 (£15), then define lips with Sleek MakeUp Lipstick in Exxxagerate (£4.99) – a gorgeous lip colour on dark skin.
Apply the sky blue eyeshadow from Chanel’s 41 Fascination Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Palette (£38) all over the lid and Chanel’s Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-lasting Eyeliner in 57 True Blue (£19). Next pat on Sleek MakeUp Blush in Flushed (£4.49) across the cheeks and blend towards the hairline. Finish off the look with Estée Lauder’s Signature Hydra Lustre Lipstick in Terracotta (£19) and Pure Colour Lipgloss in Ruby (£16).
