This super-defined take on a traditional smoky eye and mirror ball, glossy lips is only serving to accentuate stunning features.
We worked with makeup artist, Pauline Briscoe, to bring you this tutorial. Alongside your base essentials and tools, you can recreate this look, demonstrated on Jayde, with our customisable, sustainable Colour Palette.
"Want a sexy smoky look but scared that dark shades are dangerous for the untrained artist? Try keeping the lids light and only smoke up the crease and lash line for smouldering sexiness –without the scare factor!"
STEP BY STEP GUIDE
Apply Beauty Booster Sheer Foundation with your Beauty Drop Sponge. Then, using clean fingers, apply Undercover Cream Concealer in the under-eye area working in a triangle shape, with the point of the triangle pointing down towards the cheek. Finally, use your Beauty Drop Sponge to buff it out.
Using your Full Coverage Kabuki Brush, dust your Mineral Foundation across the face in gentle, circular motions. Pay attention to your oily areas, such as the T-zone (forehead and nose). Then, using the same brush, tap Soft Focus Perfecting Powder to mattify those areas where desired.
Time to get cheeky with your Blush Crush! Smile in the mirror (make this a part of your routine, even when you’re not applying blusher!) and apply the colour to the apples of your cheeks, using the Precision Face Brush for a fresh-faced glow.
Dust a little Way To Glow on the cheekbones with the pointed end of the Precision Face Brush, taking care to cover all the areas that the natural light might touch too – such as the cupid’s bow, brow bone and cheekbones.
After applying Eyes On You in Marula to the lid with the small end of the Flat Detailing Brush, smudge Eyes On You in Bamboo Charcoal around the lash line using the pointed end. Blend Eyes On You in Kahai into the crease of your eye with the fluffy end of your Eye Shadow Brush, using the pointed end under the lash line to smoke the look out. Then, for added drama, take your Silk Gel Liner in Ebony to create a thin line with a slight flick.
After smudging and smoking out your liner and shadow with the pointy end of your 3in1 Eye Brush, gently brush the lashes with the Fixing Gel Mascara in Black. Start with one coat, then apply the Extension Fibres, and finish with a final lacquer of mascara on top.
Line the lips with a subtle outline, using the Line Up Lip Pencil to fill, before applying a generous lacquer of Lip Glaze in Rose Blossom for glossy goodness!
