Perfect for: “Both day and night wear – or a romantic dinner! The focus here is on a bold lip and natural dewy skin. Use an illuminating foundation and long wearing matte lipstick to achieve this look. The long wearing lipstick will ensure your lip colour doesn’t transfer or break down in colour as the day or night progresses.”

Step 1. “Prep your skin with MAC Strobe Cream to achieve this luminous glow. Then apply Giorgio Armani Sheer Fluid illuminating veil to your chosen foundation base. I wanted this look to have quite a bit of radiance so I used Nars Sheer Glow Foundation. This hydrating foundation provides all day coverage with a natural radiant finish.”

“The sheer fluid illuminator diluted the foundation consistency so that it was a lighter base that blended seamlessly into her skin. I like to apply highlighter to the bridge of the nose and cupids bow for more of a distinct highlight.”

Step 2. “Line your top lash line with a waterproof eyeliner to ensure your look is smudge-proof.”

Step 3. “Add natural lashes to give your eyes more of a sultry feel.”

Step 4. “Finish the look with a matte lip colour of your choice.”

Tip: “If you want to convert a satin lipstick to more of a matte finish, place a tissue over your lips after applying the lipstick. Then dab a small amount of translucent powder over the top of the tissue. This will not only give your lipstick more hold, but instantly mattify the colour.”

Hair: Get The Look

Perfect for: “This is the perfect look for someone who doesn’t like too much structure. The raw texture in the hair gives off a cool but pretty and effortless vibe. Once it is pinned off your face, there will be little to no fiddling. Hair can be done in a few minutes by combining Batiste or Klorane dry shampoo and L’Oreal Techni.ART WILD STYLERS Next Day Hair spray to your roots and ends. This hairstyle is best done after a wave or on two day-old hair.”

Step 1. “Separate random sections of hair and curl with a heated curling iron.”

Step 2. “Flip hair upside down and spray L’Oreal Techni.ART WILD STYLERS Next Day Hair texture spray heavily to all of your curls.”

Step 3. “Flip your head upright. You should have plenty of body and texture at this stage.”

Step 4. “Separate your part line and pin both sides back in a rolling motion to secure your hair and create a point of interest to your hairstyle.”

Step 5. “Dress your hair by pulling out pieces around your fringe and hairline to create an effortless, ethereal bedhead look.

Tip: Take a fine section of hair and create friction between your fingertips by rubbing hair between your thumb index and middle finders. When you are happy with the result, spray more Next Day Hair texture spray for more grit and hold factor.”

Step 6. “Secure a Baby’s Breath hair crown to the back of your hair by crossing pins over in an ‘x’ shape.”

Step 7. “Cover any visible pins using fine fringe pins that match in with your hair colour!”
