HOW TO CREATE THE SMOKE AND MIRRORS LOOK WITH PAULINE BRISCOE AND JAYDE
This modern take on a traditional, sexy smoky eye and a nude, glossy lip get-up is only serving to accentuate Jayde’s stunning features.
Here, Pauline Briscoe has made a point of using highlighter to enhance the skin’s natural glow and tie the rest of the face into the lip gloss. Jayde loves a look that celebrates her lips, she tells us “they’re probably my favourite facial feature!”
We’ve recreated many of these looks on different models, in order to show you how to create the same effect but for various skin tones, skin types and face shapes. Alongside your base essentials and tools, you can recreate this look, demonstrated on Jayde, with our customisable, sustainable Colour Palette.
Step by step
Apply BEAUTY BOOSTER sheer foundation in Shade 9 with your PURE PRECISION beauty drop sponge. Then, using your fingers, apply UNDERCOVER cream concealer in Clay in the under eye area working in a triangle shape, with the point of the triangle pointing down towards the cheek. Use your PURE PRECISION beauty drop sponge to buff it out.
Using your ECO ARTIST full coverage kabuki brush, dust your MINERAL FOUNDATION in Shade 8 (formerly Rich Mocha) 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 your SOFT FOCUS perfecting powder in Dark to mattify those areas where desired.
Time to get cheeky with your BLUSH CRUSH pressed colour in Cinnamon Sugar (coming soon) and 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 with the ECO ARTIST powder brush for a fresh-faced glow.STEP FOUR
Dust a little WAY TO GLOW pressed highlighter in Rose Gold on the cheekbones with the pointed end of the ECO ARTIST precision face brush, taking care to cover all the areas that the natural light might touch too, such as the cupid’s bow, eyebrow bone and cheekbones.
After applying EYES ON YOU pressed shadow in Marula to the lid with the small end of the ECO ARTIST flat detailing brush, smudge EYES ON YOU pressed shadow in Bamboo Charcoal around the lash line using the pointed end. Blend EYES ON YOU pressed shadow in Kahai into the crease of your eye with the fluffy end of your eyeshadow 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.STEP SIX
After lots of smudging and smoking out of your liner and shadow with the pointy end of your ECO ARTIST eye shadow brush, gently brush the lashes with the FIXING GEL MASCARA in Black with one little coat, apply the EXTENSION FIBRES in Black, then do another coat of mascara on top.STEP SEVEN
Fill out to the edge of the lips with a subtle outline using LINE UP lip pencil in Brave (coming soon) then apply LIP GLAZE in Rose Blossom generously to the pillows of your lips to add a generous lacquer of glossy goodness!
