‘’The distinctive curved, bronzed eye that I have created compliments the feminine silhouettes of Matthew’s Collection beautifully, whilst also embodying the ‘coolness’ of the Brit girl. I’ve purposely emphasised the skin with a golden glow to work alongside the stunning rich jewel tones of the collection.’’

How to create the look:

Step 1: Prep

Prep the skin using total moisture mixed with girl meets pearl then prime the eyes using stay don’t stray in the best suited shade.

Step 2: Brows

Add natural looking volume and definition to brows using gimme brow, brushing up the inner corners slightly for an ‘un-done’ look.

 Step 3: Eyes

Using boi-ing concealer as an eyeshadow, sweep over the lids using an eye shadow blending brush. Use the shade of boi-ing which is a perfect match to your skintone. Following the natural shape of the eye socket, use hoola to map out a graphic line using a hard angled brush. Then go over this with longwear powder shadow in kiss me I’m tipsy and blend lightly with a cotton bud until you achieve a soft, smokey graphic line.

 Step 4

Using BADgal waterproof liner, line the upper waterline and upper lash line of the eye, then blend the lash line liner with a cotton bud for a softer finish.

 Step 5

Go back to the lid with boi-ing concealer and fill in the gap between both lines in order to add depth.  Apply lashings of they’re real mascara to the top lashes only, fanning out the corner lashes by turning the mascara wand so that it is vertical.

 Step 6: Complexion

For the glowing complexion, apply hello flawless oxygen wow, blending from the centre of the face outwards. Conceal using boi-ing where necessary and contour using hoola matte bronzer.

To highlight, use long wear powder shadow in gilt-y pleasure on the high points of the face, focusing on the bridge of the nose, cupids bow and cheekbones for an ultimate golden glow.

 Step 7: Lips

For the lips, mix boi-ing and hydra-smooth lip colour in air kiss together and pat over the lips. Finish the lip with a touch of clear, ultra plush lip gloss in icebreaker.
