Red-hot rocker Jess Glynne

Belfast Telegraph - Weekend - - BEAUTY - By Paddy McGur­gan

Fresh from her show-stop­ping per­for­mance at Bel­sonic this week, we put the spot­light on singer Jess Glynne. The 27-year-old likes to sur­prise — in­clud­ing with her make-up. Here’s how to get her look.

Be­yond the pale

I adore Jess’s fierce, fiery red locks matched against her paler ‘less is more’ com­plex­ion. To recre­ate this com­plex­ion, it’s best to aim for build­able cov­er­age. For this I rec­om­mend us­ing Nars Sheer Glow (£32). Ex­pect a foun­da­tion that is so light­weight, it adds a con­trol­lable nat­u­ral dew to the skin. This foun­da­tion comes in a range of shades, so is per­fect for the fairest of them all. Sim­ply use a duo fi­bre brush to add an ex­tra smooth fin­ish onto the skin.

Cover my eyes

For long-haul flights, late nights and the daily grind, our skin will al­ways take the big­gest hit. And one of the first ar­eas to be af­fected is the un­der eyes, re­sult­ing in dark cir­cles, tem­po­rary lines and puffi­ness as skin here is thin­ner. Thank good­ness wa­ter is the saviour be­cause when your body is hy­drated, skin re­newal and cell turnover works at a much faster rate. How­ever, if you would like a lit­tle bit of ex­tra help, then I rec­om­mend pick­ing up Ceramide Eye Gel by Mario Bade­scu (£19). The cool­ing gel soothes the un­der-eye area to re­duce puffi­ness, signs of tired­ness and fine lines. For the best re­sults, keep this hero prod­uct in the fridge — you are guar­an­teed max­i­mum im­pact.

Paint it black

Jess loves an ex­tended wing liner. And yes, I know this oh-so-pop­u­lar ef­fect can be tricky to achieve. The key re­ally is prac­tice and, of course, an out­stand­ingly sharp liq­uid liner. There are so many I like, but the one I love is Kat Von D Tat­too Liner (£16). While there is no right or wrong way to do this, here are a few tips on how you can achieve a ex­tended liner even Adele would be jeal­ous of. Firstly, en­sure your liner is jet black. Try it on the back of your hand be­fore you be­gin. Se­condly, use a hand-held mir­ror, tilt your head back slightly and look down to en­sure you can see each part of the eye. And fi­nally, be­gin at the cor­ner of the eye and flick out to get an elon­gated line and have a bet­ter chance of a sharp flick.

Long-last­ing fin­ish

When it comes to lip colour, Ms Glynne loves a nude gloss. For this I rec­om­mend OCC Lip Tar (£14.55) in Dash. It has a glossy fin­ish, but its tar-like con­sis­tency means it is long-last­ing and has an amaz­ing pig­ment to en­sure min­i­mal top-ups.

Cheek to cheek

Jess prefers an un­sculpted cheek­bone, so in re­sponse to this add blush to cheeks but with def­i­ni­tion. This will im­me­di­ately warm up the com­plex- ion with­out con­tour­ing. To com­pli­ment her pale skin tone I love the Ben­e­fit CORAL- ista Coral Blusher (£24.50). Sur­pris- in­gly this pow­der prod­uct has such a creamy con­sis­tency and the pig­ment is smooth on the skin.
