Cheeks – Fresh & Glowing

For a just-pinched flush brush rosy-peach blush, like Benefit Rockatour, following the cheekbones, focusing on the apples of the cheek. If your skin tends to be dry, substitute a cheek stain, like Benetint, for a fresh, hydrated look.


Eyes & Lashes – Smoky & Spiced

1. Prime your eyelids up to the brow so your shades last and look vibrant.

2. Grab a palette that has shimmer shades and neutrals – our pick is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette. For your base, brush your entire lid with a shimmery golden shadow. You can also use this shade along your lower lash line.

3. Deepen the crease with a rich coppery shade, extending it in the outside corner to meet the lower lash line.

Tip: Use a makeup sponge to “erase” any fallout and make sure your shadow doesn’t get too close to your brow line.

4. Add a bit of extra sparkle by applying a layer of NYX Face and Body Glitter in Copper across the whole lid.

5. Line the top lid with Rimmel London ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Stick in Bad Bronze.

6. Dramatize your waterline by lining it black. Our pick: Ulta Beauty Gel Eyeliner Pencil in Black Out


Lips – Neutral Allure

Create a barely-there lip with the help of a neutral liner and a matte liquid lipstick, like NYX Lingerie in Lace Detail.


Brows – Defined & Groomed

Using a brow brush, comb upward to manicure your brows. Take an angled liner/brow brush and apply Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder to fill in the shape.

Tip: Your brows shouldn’t be the same darkness throughout. Generally, the arch and tail should be the most defined and dark. It’s okay to have the inner part of your brow sparser and lighter. This gives your arch dimension.


Hair – Sombre / Mid-Length Volume

Sombre is the softer side of ombre – a modern update to traditional color-blocked tresses – go a few shades lighter or darker than your natural color to complement your skin tone. As for the cut, when you go just longer than shoulder length you get pretty volume without being weighted down.

Maintain your style with Redken Wax Blast 10 High Impact Finishing Spray-Wax – it creates a tousled look with body and dimension.
