First, start by applying the Bobbi Brown Luminous Moisturizing Foundation with a large stippling brush – this will make sure you distribute the product evenly. For a natural finish, pat in with fingertips.



Now it’s time to apply the concealer – you know how this one goes. Apply the Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer to the under eyes and any areas that might need a little extra coverage. Again, blend with fingers to ensure your skin looks dewy and natural – we want to keep the base free as we’re going for a full eye look.



To contour, lightly dust the Fake Bake Beyond Bronze Bronzer in the hollows of the cheeks – the brush included is perfect for a precise application. Then simply buff in.
Now onto brows – this step is optional, but we like to pair a strong eye with a strong brow. Today we’re using the Colorsport Smokey Eyes and Perfect Brow Kit because of the array of colours it has. Use them alone, or mix them up!



Onto the eyes. Using the W7 10 Out of 10 palette, start by defining the eyes with a matte brown shadow in the crease – as always, blend out to ensure everything looks fresh. Next, apply a deep purple shade (or any darker colour of your choice) to the centre of the lid for a slight pop of colour. Blend blend blend! To finish, add a touch of matte black to the outer corners to give it that real smokey finish.

Then, using the W7 Automatic Liner Pencil in Black, tight line the eyes for a more sultry finish. You don’t have to be precise with this one as we’re looking for that ‘bedroom eyes’ look. Finish the eyes with lots of mascara on both the top and bottom lashes (we’re using the Borjois Elastic Mascara due to it’s lengthening properties).



For the lips, apply the Glo Minerals Lipstick in Blush straight from the bullet for a fuller coverage. The nude lip will help to put emphasis on the smokey eyes we created before.



Want more drama? Apply the Jemma Kidd Creamy Shadow in Velvet to the outer corners of the eye. The creamy metallic texture will help the eyes pop and add a little extra glamour for a night out on the town (or if you just fancy a bit more sparkle). And you’re ready!
