1

Create the look of naked skin

Apply a small amount of liquid foundation to your entire face using a stubble brush. Start at the centre of each cheek then spread outwards, ending at the nose. Don’t add extra product to your brush during application.

Pro tip: The secret to using the right amount of foundation? Put a few drops in the palm of your hand (about the size of a nickel) then blend using a brush before applying it to your cheeks.

2

Keep your eyes wide open!

Use a black eyeliner to draw a line on your upper eyelid. Start from the centre and move outward, then redraw the line moving from the outside towards the centre. Try to make the line slightly thicker towards the outside by raising the eyeliner line a tiny bit at a time.

Keep your eyes wide open!

Careful! Some liquid eyeliners need to be shaken two or three times during application as they contain micro beads that act as an emulsifier to maximize vibrancy.

3

Go for a diffuse shadow

Using a small brush, apply a small amount of black shadow to the outside corner of your eye. If you want more saturation, apply a second coat fading it out towards the hollow part of the eyelid in a V shape. Don’t go overboard: the colour should always remain slightly transparent.

Pro tip: Avoid using a mattifying base on your eyes so the natural oils of your skin can mix with the shadow to create a blurry, slightly imperfect effect. That’s its charm!

Give your eyes some sparkle!

Apply a touch of concealer and spread it towards the temples, then blend it with a wet mini-sponge. If you still have tiny amounts of excess eye shadow or liner that need removing, use the pointy end of the sponge for precision accura

Give your eyes some sparkle!

Looking for a more assertive style? Add a layer of mascara to your upper eyelashes and give your lips some oomph with a light gloss.

Set your makeup

Using a brush, spread the setting powder over the areas that create the most sebum, which interferes with hold. Start with the eyes; concealers and correctors are already oily. Next, using the remaining powder, do the edges of your nose, the centre of your chin, your forehead, cheeks and the tip of your nose.  Avoid using too much: your skin should remain supple and well hydrated
