This look is about ac­cen­tu­at­ing the eyes and is best paired with pale lips in or­der not to over­whelm the face.

STEP 1. PRIMER

Ap­ply a primer to your face. Primer will help achieve a per­fect fin­ish and in­crease the stay­ing power of your foun­da­tion through­out the day.

STEP 2. CONCEALER

Ap­ply concealer to dark cir­cles un­der the eyes and any blem­ishes you wish to dis­guise.

STEP 3. FOUN­DA­TION

Ap­ply foun­da­tion start­ing in the mid­dle of your face and blend out­wards. Then, set your foun­da­tion with a translu­cent set­ting pow­der.

STEP 4. BLUSH

Ap­ply blush in a soft peachy tone to the cheek­bones. Start from the back near your ear and sweep it down to­wards the ap­ples of your cheeks.

STEP 5. CON­TOUR

Build up colour by ap­ply­ing con­tour in light coats. Be­gin by lightly dab­bing the end of your brush into your con­tour colour be­fore tap­ping off the ex­cess. Then, lightly brush along your cheek­bones start­ing from the hair­line and work­ing down to­ward the tip of your lips. Ap­ply con­tour to your tem­ple along your hair­line and lastly along your jaw­line. Re­mem­ber, less is more.

STEP 6. HIGH­LIGHTER

Use a fan brush to pick up some high­light­ing pow­der and lightly brush it di­ag­o­nally along your cheek­bone, on the tip of your nose and above your cupid’s bow.

STEP 6. EYE­SHADOW

Be­gin by ap­ply­ing an eye primer to the eye­lids. Set this primer by ap­ply­ing a nude eye­shadow to the eye­lid, work­ing it up un­der the brow bone. Then, use a fluffy brush to blend a taupe eye­shadow into the crease of the eye and on the lower lash line. This will be your tran­si­tion shade. Take a darker shade of eye­shadow and with a smaller blend­ing brush ap­ply it to the outer cor­ner of the eye and on the lower lash line. Keep build­ing up this colour to in­crease in­ten­sity and dark­ness. Re­mem­ber, it’s eas­ier to add more colour than to take it away. To fin­ish, use a clean blend­ing brush to dif­fuse the edges of the darker shade into the taupe.

STEP 7. EYE­LINER

Use a black eye­liner to draw a thin line along the top lash line.

STEP 6. EYE­LASHES

Curl eye­lashes and ap­ply mas­cara. For a dra­matic look, you can also use some false eye­lashes.

STEP 7. LIPS

Keep the lips sim­ple. We rec­om­mend us­ing a lip liner a shade darker than your nat­u­ral tone. Fill the lips com­pletely with liner and ap­ply a neu­tral lip gloss. By keep­ing the lips soft, the eyes will be the main fo­cus.
