ALL ABOUT THAT BASE

The start­ing point for per­fect make-up is al­ways the right foun­da­tion. Make-up artist Nikki Wolff talks us through three beau­ti­ful, wear­able make-up looks, with dif­fer­ent fin­ishes on the skin

This is the ideal look to make you feel con­fi­dent. Sculpted skin, a flick of liq­uid liner and a pop of colour on lips is a time­less combo for a night out or an im­por­tant meet­ing.

I started by moisturising the skin with Estée Lauder DayWear Ad­vanced Multi-Pro­tec­tion Anti-Ox­i­dant Creme SPF15 (£44, es­tee lauder.co.uk). Then I ap­plied Estée Lauder Dou­ble Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup SPF10 (£32.50, as be­fore) as I wanted to cre­ate a semi-matt, long-wear­ing base.

I used a small an­gled blusher brush with Mac Sculpt­ing Pow­der in Shadester (£23, mac­cos­met­ics.co.uk) and let the brush do most of the work to sculpt un­der cheek­bones, across the top of the fore­head and tem­ples. This helps to cre­ate di­men­sion in the cheek­bones.

Next, I used Tom Ford Eye Defin­ing Pen (£45, sel­fridges. com) along the top lash line. Ap­ply­ing liq­uid liner with eyes slightly open helps to give a smoother fin­ish. I fin­ished eyes with a black kohl pen­cil along the wa­ter­line and a gen­er­ous coat­ing of mas­cara.

For a power pout, I ap­plied Vic­to­ria Beck­ham Estée Lauder Lipstick in Chilean Sun­set (£38, vic­to­ri­abeck­ham. com). I like to use a lip brush with stronger shades, as it gives you more con­trol of the shape.
