We love an excuse to get glam here in Benetowers, so of course we jumped at the chance of creating a beautiful party look with our Makeup & Trend Artist, Laurretta Power. And guess what beauties, this even features our brand new they’re real! lip and eye kits! Here’s how Laurretta created it:
PREP & PRIME
Before starting any look it’s all about prepping and priming the skin to give the perfect base for makeup application! First apply triple performing emulsion, followed by firm it up! eye serum, then finish with the POREfessional matte rescue.
“Primers are my secret weapon!!! POREfessional matte rescue is my absolute fave, it will help even tone and smooth the skin, while locking makeup in place for up to 30 times longer. Oh….! and did I mention it also contains diamond dust. What girl could resist???” explains Laurretta.
Onto brows, and for this look, first prime your brows with BROW-vo conditioning primer. Brush the brows up using the applicator tip, as this will reveal any sparse areas. Then, line under the brow using ka-BROW. Then, brush the hairs down and draw a line along the top of the brow.
Use the remainder of the product on the brush to fill in the brow, and create hair like strokes at the front of the brow. TOP TIP: Always brush through the brows to create a seamless and blended finish.
Finally, keep those hairs in place with ready, set, BROW!
Be prepared beauties, there’s a few steps to this eye look… but it’s worth it 😉
First, let us introduce to you the NEW they’re real! BIG sexy eye kit… taking the struggle out of shadow application! Sweep the applicator along the eyelids to give you a guide. If you would like to intensify the colour, then simply pick up a shadow brush and layer up the colour you desire.
Next, run they’re real! push up liner in brown along the lash line and quickly smudge it out. Why do we love this liner? “This pen style liner gives you the perfect combination of flexability and stability thanks to the unique accu flex tip which will bring you closer to your lash line than ever before!!” explains Laurretta.
Next, create a wing with they’re real! push up liner in black. Then, using a brush blend it seamlessly into the brown smoked line.
Finally, run a small amount of they’re real! push up liner in brown along the lower lash liner, and using a shadow brush, pick up the darkest colour in the BIG sexy eye kit and blend blend blend over the top.
TOP TIP from our Laurretta… always apply foundation after applying eye shadow if your are creating a bold eye look. This will clean up any fall down! By using a flat foundation brush, you can also sharpen up any areas you need to. Win win!
To brighten underneath the eye, apply erase paste and blend using a beauty sponge or your finger.
This look is ALL about having big bold lashes! To achieve this, our Laurretta first applied they’re real! tinted primer… “I always use they’re real lash primer. It will prolong wear, but also give that real false lash look without the fuss!” she explains.
Next, load up those lashes with they’re real! mascara in black.
CONTOUR & BLUSH
Time for a soft contour! Apply hoola in a figure of three, going first along the forehead, then just under the cheekbone and then under the jawline. Then, apply dallas blush onto the apples of your cheeks.
Sharpen your contour with hello flawless powder. Layer on the product and leave for few minutes before sweeping off.
We are so excited about the final step! “I love how they’re real double the lip gives you fuller looking lips in 1 easy step, these beauties have built in liner that does all the hard work for you!…… dreamy!” explains Laurretta.
Apply lusty rose for a gorgeous softly nude lip, or go bold with pink thrills! Which one is your fave?
