Kate Good­win, CEO & Founder of Il­lu­min8 Me­dia Make-Up Stu­dio, demon­strates how to cre­ate a strik­ing ’70s look at home.


Flaw­less skin is key so be­gin by ap­ply­ing strobe cream (MAC Strobe Cream) to the en­tire face and mas­sage well. Fol­low with primer (Gucci Silk Prim­ing Serum) and be sure to blend well with your fin­gers. Once ab­sorbed, ap­ply tinted mois­turiser or foundation (Laura Mercier Il­lu­mi­nat­ing

Tinted Mois­turiser) to the skin, blend in so it dis­ap­pears into the skin com­pletely. Use a syn­thetic brush and con­cealer (Gucci Lu­mi­nous Per­fect­ing Con­cealer) to cover any blem­ishes and un­der-eye dark cir­cles, blend by tap­ping rather than rub­bing. This tech­nique gives the make-up longevity as it doesn’t rub it off.


Ap­ply eye base to the lids to prep the eye be­fore the pow­der eye­shadow (Gucci Ot­tanio Eye­shadow). With a nat­u­ral haired socket eye­shadow brush, ap­ply the colour eye­shadow all over the lid and into the socket, blend up­wards and out­wards. Use a shim­mery gold tone eye­shadow and ap­ply a small amount on the up­per eyelid in the cen­tre, this helps to sub­tly open the eye and adds a lit­tle sparkle! Use a cham­pagne shimmer in the in­ner cor­ners of the eyes to make them brighter. If you want to take it up a notch, try adding a lit­tle gold glit­ter on top of the gold eye­shadow.


Use a black eye pen­cil (Gucci Im­pact Long Wear Eye Pen­cil in Iconic Black) to line the up­per lash line and use a small brush to soften the line so it’s not harsh. Run a black kohl pen­cil along the up­per and bot­tom wa­ter lines of the eye. Fin­ish with two lay­ers of black mas­cara.


Us­ing gen­tle strokes to blend the blusher (Bobbi Brown Apri­cot Blush) on the cheeks and up­wards to­wards the ears. With an an­gled brush use a matte bronzer (Gucci Golden Glow Bronzer) just un­der­neath the cheek­bones for def­i­ni­tion.


With a brush, ap­ply the lip­stick (Gucci Cipria Lux­u­ri­ous Mois­ture-Rich Lip­stick) for pre­cise ap­pli­ca­tion.
