Step 1 – Apply foundation
Prep and moisturise your skin, then apply the Estée Lauder Stay-In-Place foundation, using a foundation brush. Start in the centre of the face and blend outwards, applying a little bit at a time and building it up.
Step 2 – Apply concealer
Now look to apply your NARS concealer using a fluffy to any areas of redness, and blend it in.
Step 3 – Apply eyebrow pencil
Here you can apply the NARS eyebrow pencil to the brows using light feathery brushstrokes until they are filled in, then brush them using a disposable mascara wand.
Step 4 – Apply mascara
Apply MAC Endless Play mascara to your top and bottom lashes. Really wiggle the mascara wand into the roots of the lashes to get a bold black effect that will really make your eyes pop.
Step 5 – Apply eye shadow
Now you can apply the Bobbi Brows eye shadow to your eyelids using a fluffy brush; this evens out any imperfections and gives a bit of depth to the corners of the eyes. Next apply the Bourjois glittery eye shadow to the inner corner of your eyes and along the eyelid.
Step 6 – Stick on false lashes
Put a little DUO glue on the back of your hand, then, using a small paint brush, apply a little glue to the lash line of the false lashes and stick them to your eye lashes.
Step 7 – Apply eyeliner
Apply the Rimmel eyeliner to your eyes, drawing on a flick at the end. When you move on to the second eye keep checking the first one so you keep your makeup symmetrical.
Step 8 – Apply lipstick
Line your lips with the MAC lip pencil, then fill in the lips with the Bobbi Brown red lipstick using a lip brush. Blot your lips on a tissue and re-apply your lipstick; this will make the colour last the whole day and give you a really intense colour.
Step 9 – Apply blush
Apply the MAC blush to the apples of your cheeks and onto your cheek bones using a blusher brush. Don’t apply too much, as you just want to bring a little colour to your face.
