GET THE LOOK

Three easy, wearable SS17 makeup looks to inspire #beautyconfidence this season. Choose your look and watch international Makeup Artist Kim Jacob show you how to recreate them at home using our lineup of award-winning makeup.

 

GLOW & GLOSS

Natural & glowing - an easy, everyday look for all women.

  1. CLEAR BASE Conceal any blemishes or shadows then dot tinted moisturiser over the skin - 4 to 6 pea-size applications should be enough for a full face. The light to medium coverage of a tinted moisturiser will give a skin fresh glow - perfect for warmer summer months.
  2. BRONZE & GLOW Apply a little powder to your T-Zone to remove any shine, the HD powder in Wild About Beauty's Concealer Kit is great for this. Apply bronzing powder to the apple of the cheeks, and gently sweep over your eyelids.
  3. INSTANT RADIANCE Tap or blend highlighter across the tops of cheeks, above the bronzer and to the brow bone to create radiance.
  4. THE EYES HAVE IT Sweep nude eyeshadow across lids and blend edges. Take the eyeshadow pencil ¾ way under the eye and blend again to soften. Add a slick of mascara to finish.
  5. PRETTY LIPS Prep lips with a moisturising balm before defining lips with a soft, smudgy line. Dab a little gloss onto the middle of your lips for a fresh, soft finish.

 

 

FELINE FLICKS & STARRY EYES

Fresh, metallic eyes to pop with a slick of jet black liner for a feline flick.

  1. PREP, BASE & BLUSH Create a flawless, matte base using concealer and powder. Apply the creme blush to the apple of the cheeks and blend using your fingers or a sponge in an upward motion.
  2. BE CHEEKY For a stronger cheek, apply powder blusher after you've set the base with powder.
  3. METALLIC EYES Swipe powder eyeshadow over lids and up to the socket line.
  4. DEFINE & LINE Draw liquid eyeliner along the lashes - start from the middle of the eye and work outwards, then fill in from the middle to the inner corner of the eye.
  5. FLICK OUT Extend the liner at the outer corners to elongate and lift the eye. Try marking a dot where you want the flick to end, then draw your line out to meet it. Add lashings of volumising mascara.
  6. PRETTY LIPS Finish with a natural pretty gloss

 

NUDE EYES & RED LIPS

Nude eyes and bold red lipstick - nail the look seen in London, Paris & NYC

  1. FLAWLESS BASE Use a primer to even tone and create a lasting base. Blend a pea-size amount over the skin before applying concealer and foundation. Blend well and set with a little powder.
  2. NATURAL BLUSH Using a brush, apply a natural blush to the apple of the cheeks (the round area that appears when you smile).
  3. SUBTLE GLOW Brush highlighter above the blusher, on the tops of cheeks for a youthful glow. New CID's Sirocco is shimmery so a little goes a long way.
  4. COLOUR WASH Swipe a gold powder over eyelids and along the bottom lash line. Add a little mascara - try wiping the excess off on a tissue so you don't use too much.
  5. LIPS - THE MAIN EVENT With red lipstick it's essential to apply a matching lip-liner to contain the colour. For longer-lasting colour, apply lipstick then blot the lips with a tissue and re-apply. One of the SS17 trends is a matte finish - if this leaves your lips feeling dry, prep with a great lip balm.

 

 

THE GREEN SMOKY EYE

Give a hint of tint to your standard smoky eye...

  1. PREP YOUR BASE Create a flawless base with concealer, using a tinted moisturiser or foundation to add a glowing, dewy finish.
  2. POP OF COLOUR Apply powder bronzer to the naturally sun-kissed areas of your face (cheekbones, temples, sides of your nose), adding highlighter to the tops of the cheekbones for an illuminating, youthful glow. Blend using your fingers.
  3. SMOKY EYES Smooth cream eyeshadow over the eyelids, using a brush take the colour all the way along the bottom of your eyes, keeping close to the lash line. Next, apply your powder eyeshadow on top and blend to add a sultry depth to your smoky eye. Smudge a line of black eyeliner close to the top and bottom lashes and along the tear line to define your eyes.
  4. LASHINGS OF MASCARA The more the better, apply to the top lashes using a zig-zag motion - this will ensure all lashes are evenly coated, adding volume without clumping.
  5. A NEUTRAL LIP Highlight dramatic eyes with a contrasting, neutral lip. Apply your lipstick and, for an extra pop of shine, add some gloss!
