Step One; Prep skin by moisturising, followed by a primer. If you're feeling and looking extra sleepy (late nights will do that to a girl) then apply a soothing, re-energising cream under your eyes. I love the one from Soap and Glory. Then apply your chosen foundation, I'm using my trusty Clinique Stay Matte in 'Alabaster'. I always apply with my fingers in the morning to wake up skin and mostly for speed.
Step Two; Dust a light eyeshadow over your eyelid. I'm using the cream shade from the Clinqiue Colour Surge Eye Shadow Quad.
Step Three; Apply a light, messy line of brown kohl pencil above your lashline and use your fingers to blend the eyeliner in and make it looked a little 'lived-in'. I also used L'Oreal Super Liner Gelmatic in 'Black', applying it in the same way as the kohl liner and smudging it in.
Step Four; Apply a good few layers of mascara to your top lashes and lightly press the mascara wand on your lower lashes for a few seconds to add length to them. I'm using Clinique High Impact Mascara in 'Black'.
Step Five; Apply Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer to blemishes and under the eyes before blending in. Finish by applying pressed powder to your face, paying particular attention to your t-zone. I'm using Rimmel's Stay Matte Pressed Powder.
Step Six; Yes this is a strange facial expression but sucking in your cheeks and applying a bronzer, like Benefit Coralista, to the the hollows of your cheeks, as shown, contours the face. I also apply a pink blush whilst smiling to bring out the apples of cheeks, followed by an illuminating powder, like 17's Shimmer Bricks.
Step Seven; Tame and shape your eyebrows briefly with a brow brush. Then finish the look with a subtle lip colour, such as Maybelline Colour Sensations in 'Pearly Pink'.
