Our second instalment from hair and make-up duo, the Technicolour twins, is here. This time, Danielle talks us through the steps to recreate our favourite make up look from the High Summer look book shoot; Sixties Siren.
Prepping your skin before applying make-up is just as, if not more, important than the application itself. To do this, begin by exfoliating the skin using Age-Defying Exfoliating Pads. Then cleanse using a Hydrating Cleanser. Both of the products I use are by Radical.
Apply BB (Beauty Balm) cream for radiant coverage and healthy, natural glow. There are lots of great BB creams available but my favourite is YSL’s Top Secrets BB Cream, complete with essential SPF20 protection.
This look is all about the eyes. Apply a heavy line of black, kohl pencil eyeliner across the top of the eyelid following your lash line and finish with feline flicks from the outside corners. I recommend NARS Larger than Life Long-Wear pencil in colour ‘Via Veneto’, it won’t smudge or budge all day.
Using the same pencil, apply liner on the inside of the bottom lashes. Finish off the eyes with three coats of black mascara, my favourite is Larger than Life Lengthiness by NARS.
Next, define your brows. Follow your natural brow shape using a shadow rather than a pencil as this is great for a fuller, more masculine brow. I recommend Laura Mercier Brow Powder Duo.
As the eyes are the focus for this look, it’s important to keep the lip looking subtle, soft and feminine. Finish the Sixties Siren by using a pale creamy lip colour. Try MAC lipstick in ‘Pure Zen’.
