Hollywood Makeup – Stage 1

Step 1: Create your base

First prime your eyes to create an even base for your eye products to be applied to. Next, using an off-white colour, cover your eyelid as the base colour. This will accentuate the darker colours that follow.

Step 2: Cover your Crease

Using a light-medium brown eyeshadow, apply to the crease of your eye. This will add depth to your eye making them pop.

Step 3: Darker shades

Go for a dark brown and blend in the outer corners of your eyes. This will add further depth to our eye as well as neatly framing the look. With the same colour, line your bottom lashline.

Step 4: Shimmer

Step 1: Contour cheeks

Using a brown bronzer/contour palette, contour your cheekbones to make them more prominent. You can identify your cheekbones by sucking your cheeks in and blending along the line.

Step 2: Blusher

Apply your preferred colour blusher. Slightly smile on each side of your face to reveal your apples.  Brush your blusher here to make your cheeks pop.

Step 3: Highlight

Using a shimmery highlighter, dust over the top of your cheekbones and up towards the top of your brow bone. Think of it as a “C” shape.

Step 4: Line your Lips

Using a lip liner or lip brush, apply a cross along your cupids bow. This will ensure accuracy and neatness. Continue to fill the rest of your lips with a lip brush, adding some lip balm to gloss.
