I applied a small amount of the Pupa Milano liquid eyeshadow across the mobile lid, using a small precise flat brush to spread the product and create the graphic shape of the shadow, dragging out into a wing and gently following the curve of my eyelid to meet the point. I advise going slightly higher than your natural crease so that the full effect is still visible when eyes are open. This first layer does not need to be perfect as it is simply to create the shape. I applied a second thin layer of this product to build some intensity and further define the shape. I then dipped into the Ciate palette, taking the shade Double Denim and packing it across the entire shape I’d created to give a smooth even colour. I also softly buffed this at the edges of the shape - we are aiming for something graphic so blending is not necessary but this softened it just slightly. I then curled the lashes and applied mascara.
I mixed Charlotte Tilbury’s Wonderglow and Magic Foundation (about a 1:2 ratio) and applied across the face. I dabbed a small amount of concealer under the eyes and blended. If you have a lot of blueness/dark shadows under the eyes, I would recommend a fuller coverage concealer for this look as the blue draws attention to this pigment. Using my fingers, I added a small amount of Benefit Sunbeam at the highest points of the face. I applied CT Contour Wand directly from the applicator and blended, before taking some of the Catrice bronzer on a brush and working the two together across the cheekbones. I added a little extra definition by taking some of the Bleach contour powder under the cheekbones.
I was going for a stronger but fluffier brow look so brushed the hairs up, filling in strongly with Dipbrow on an angled brush. I then set this shape with the Benefit brow gel.
I applied the L'Oreal lipstick directly from the bullet, and topped with the Essence gloss.
