A subtly accentuated look with naturally radiant skin… our beauty expert Virginie Vandelac has found the perfect combination for those cooler days and lingering evenings. Follow her guide!
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.
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.
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.
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
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
