Take the look from day to night

Fairlady - - BEAUTY -

STEP ONE: Ap­ply plum eye­liner to the bot­tom wa­ter­line of the eye to cre­ate a vampy look for a night out.

STEP TWO: Ap­ply sheer plum eye­shadow to the lids to make the eyes more dra­matic. ‘Stay away from harsh colours such as black or greys be­cause they can be quite age­ing,’ Melissa ad­vises. ‘Plum or aubergine tones are softer but def­i­nitely make any eye colour stand out in all the right ways.’

STEP THREE: ‘Add a high­light to the centre of the eye­lid to cre­ate a more 3D look; you’ll be amazed at the dif­fer­ence it makes.’ STEP FOUR: Dot on a bit more con­cealer.

STEP FIVE: ‘Mas­cara isn’t only for the top lashes,’ says Melissa. ‘If you’re in the mood for some­thing dar­ing, ap­ply a lit­tle to the bot­tom lashes too! Stick with black or brown mas­cara for this evening look.’

STEP SIX: For ex­tra glow, dust bronzer onto the ar­eas that light will hit: the nose, cheeks, chin, neck and fore­head.

STEP SEVEN: For the grand fi­nale, ap­ply a red li­pliner, fill it in with a long-wear­ing red lip­stick that doesn’t have too much gloss and you’re good to go! ‘A lip­stick with a blue un­der­tone will make your teeth look whiter,’ says Melissa.

PRO TIP: ‘To pre­vent lit­tle bits of eye­shadow fall­ing onto your cheeks, place a tis­sue un­der each eye when ap­ply­ing the prod­uct,’ says Melissa.
