On April 29, we will see the Crawley family return to the big screen for the much-anticipated cinematic return of Downton Abbey: A New Era. Hands up if you’re beyond excited?! *Hand shoots into the air*
The beloved cast of this global phenomenon is reunited as the glittering film industry comes to Downton Abbey. Inspired by the glamour of Hollywood’s golden age, at Superdrug, we are launching an exclusive partnership with Max Factor and Downton Abbey: A New Era to inspire you to be your own leading lady!
Our ambassador and renowned make-up artist Caroline Barnes says that “makeup should be about amplification rather than masking the features. You can use make-up in the same way that you would jewellery and make an accent of your lips or do something really strong on your eyes.” This is what inspired this limited edition get the look kit.
Follow our New Era inspired eye look to feel like a star of the silver screen, just like the oh-so-fabulous cast of Downton Abbey.
Step 1: Start by perfecting your brows
Step 2: Frame your eyes
Make a statement using the X-pert Soft Touch Palette, which is available in four opulent colourways that lend themselves to both subtle days and striking night-time creations. With a unique, blendable powder to cream formula – application is a breeze!
Step 3: Opt for a timeless winged flick
Line your lash line with the Max Factor Masterpiece High Precision Eyeliner (available in black, chocolate and charcoal), and then draw a diagonal line out to the end of the wing and fill in towards the corner of your eye. The easy-to-use eyeliner features a paddle-shaped tip to help you draw either an elegant thin line or a thick, dramatic line.
Step 4: Lift and curl your lashes
Give your lashes extra definition with the Max Factor Divine Lashes Mascara; the creamy whipped formula and ultra-soft brush provides divinely soft volume, layer after layer. Place the mascara wand right at the root of lashes to create a full, fanned-out look. Then, glide the mascara wand side to side from root to tip to separate lashes, holding at the tips for a few seconds to lock in the curl. The Divine Lashes Mascara is available in black, black waterproof and brown/black.
