Date night look: Happy hour

With the wedding season on and Valentine’s day close, it’s time to upgrade your makeup game. If bold lips are your thing, try a stunning ombre blue lip. Inspiration: Glitz and glam Black graphic eyeliner with cobalt blue ombre lips to make a bold statement.

Recreate this pretty look in 5 easy steps:

Step 1:
After cleansing, toning and moisturising, apply Tinted Perfection Base primer all over the face. Create a light base using foundation from the Total Makeover FF Cream palette. Use a beauty blender to blend the foundation seamlessly and set the base with Glow to Glamour matte fixing powder.

Step 2:
Contour the face using bronzer from the Chisel It Show Stopper palette. Brush bronzer along the jawline, diagonally across the hollows of the cheeks until the tip of the ear. Next, apply blush on the cheeks for a flush of colour. Use highlighter on the high points of the face like tops of the cheekbones, middle of the forehead, bridge of the nose and chin.

Step 3:
Tight line the eyes using Jet Set Eyes black kajal. Use the Stay Defined liquid eyeliner to create a sharp cat eye. Let it dry and extend the flick as much as you like. Shape it into a graphic liner.

Step 4:
Highlight the inner corners of the eyes and the brow bone using the metallic bronze eyeshadow. Fill in the brows with Stay Defined HD brow powder and apply a few coats of Threesome Mascara on the upper and lower eyelashes.

Step 5:
Moisturise the lips and then line it with a bright blue lip liner like the LIT Matte Eyeliner Pencil in Slay. For ombre lips, fill with the blue liner on the outer edge of the lips. Next, fill in the centre with an off-white shade like the LIT Matte Eyeliner Pencil in Mood. Gently fuse the colours together using a shader brush for an ombre effect.
