ABOUT A GIRL

Toni Malt was re­spon­si­ble for the sub­tle and art­ful make-up in this month’s fash­ion shoot, About a Girl. Born and raised in Ger­many, Malt has lived in London and New York and is cur­rently based in Dubai. She has worked with some of the most high­pro­file fash­ion mag­a­zines in the world. Her work is be­ing show­cased in a new book, out this De­cem­ber, called Trans­form, where she cre­ates 60 dif­fer­ent looks on one model, teach­ing ad­vanced make-up tech­niques such as ad­her­ing glitter, freestyling with DIY brushes and ap­ply­ing an­drog­y­nous make-up. For this month’s Lux­ury shoot, Malt went with a fresh, min­i­mal, no­make-up look that was in keep­ing with the nos­tal­gic 1990s-in­formed theme of the fash­ion ed­i­to­rial. Here, she of­fers her top five tips for recre­at­ing the look. 1 Prepa­ra­tion is key to achiev­ing a great no-make-up make-up look. Ex­fo­li­ate the skin and ap­ply a very nour­ish­ing, thick mois­turiser such as Char­lotte’s Magic Cream by Char­lotte Til­bury. This will al­low the foun­da­tion to truly merge with the skin and re­sult in a beau­ti­ful, even and healthy com­plex­ion. 2 Choose a sheer glow­ing or il­lu­mi­nat­ing foun­da­tion and use min­i­mal prod­uct. The goal should be to en­hance your skin, not to cover it. Laura Mercier Il­lu­mi­nat­ing Tinted Mois­turiser and Char­lotte Til­bury Light Won­der Foun­da­tion are great foun­da­tions to achieve this with. 3 Stick to creams and stay away from pow­ders. Tom Ford Shade & Il­lu­mi­nate is a won­der­ful cream prod­uct that can be used both to con­tour and high­light the face, as well as to gen­tly con­tour the eyes in the crease and be­low. Don’t for­get less is more for this look. 4 High­light the in­ner rim with a shiny white eye­liner (not a matte one), such as Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes in white, which has a pearl white sheen. This not only re­moves red­ness, but also adds a very sub­tle sparkle to your eyes. 5 Make sure the eye­lashes are well- de­fined and have plenty of vol­ume. Opt for a beau­ti­ful brown mas­cara.
