Step 1 – I always like to start with the brows as they really frame the face. I start with the Sleek Brow Pencil in the colour light before adding more definition with the Illamasqua Brow Cake in Thunder towards the end of the brow. I then apply a Mac Paintpot in the colour Soft Ochre all over the lid and under the brow to give a subtle highlight.
Step 2 – I applied a matte skin colour shade all over the eyelid and then a matte brown shade through the crease. The key to this look is to blend, blend, blend!
Step 3 – Using black gel eye liner I lined the upper lash line and extended it into a flick. I then applied a pair of Katy Perry lashes and mascara.
Step 4 – Moving onto the base I used the Mac Prep + Prime Radiance Primer and then followed with a foundation and a lighter concealer under the eyes. I chose to mix Nars Sheer Glow and Mac Studio Sculpt. I set this using Mac Mineralised Skin Finish Natural in Light and the yellow cc powder under the eyes to counteract the purple tones under the eyes.
Step 5 – I contoured the face with Mac Sculpting powders and the applied a blusher to the apples of the cheeks.
Step 6 – I mixed the two Illamasqua lipsticks in Minx and Rosepout and applied them to the lips.
