What to wear
Start by applying Chanel Luminous D’Ombre Eye Shadow in Convoitise up into the crease using Utowa’s Regular Eyeshadow Brush 10, and then switching to a thin shadow brush like Bobbi Brown’s Ultra Precise Eyeshadow Brush to apply the same color to the bottom lash line. Intensify the metallic effect by using your finger to tap Inglot AMC Pure Pigment Shadow in 24 onto the lid. Finish with a generous amount of L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black. And don’t forget brows- any product works here (powder, pencil, gel), as long as they’re defined.
Apply a thin layer of Giorgio Armani Luminous Foundation– or any medium to full coverage foundation of your choosing- in a light layer all over, followed by Make Up For Ever’s Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick in one shade lighter than your skin to brighten under the eyes, around the nose and on the chin, blending out using a damp BeautyBlender. To bring back definition, use the Sculpt shade of Charlotte Tilbury’s Bronze and Glow Palette on the hollows of the cheeks, temples and jawline and the Highlight shade to the high points of the face (cheekbones and bridge of the nose, namely) using her Powder & Sculpt Brush.
The lips are surprisingly easy, courtesy of the super pigmented Limecrime Cosmetics Velvetines in Red Velvet. Precise application is key, though, so take your time building up the color before it dries to a matte finish.
