Makeup artist, Nancy Spencer from our This Week In Fashion shoot tells us how she got the hair and makeup look of our gorgeous model……
Create one of hottest hair trends of 2012 at home with an easy (and less permanent) way to experiment with colour in your hair. Start by styling your hair as usual. Next mix Barry M Dazzle Dust in Neon Pink with Model Co Beauty Fix Airbrush Face to create a paint. Wear rubber gloves to stop your hands getting stained, paint the colour onto the tips of your dry hair using an eyeshadow brush. Rub the coloured ends slightly to add texture and wash out when you’re ready for a change!
Make your eyes edgy by using Barry M bold black waterproof eyeliner and smudge around the lash line and in the waterline. Next apply NYX Super fat eye marker to the top lashes only. If you struggle with liquid liner try applying the liner in three stages; inner corner to middle, middle to outer corner, and flick out to finish. Curl your lashes before applying lots of Rimmel the Maxx Bold Curves Mascara in black to define your lashes.
Try keeping your nails short and neat with Nails inc Glass Nail file. Match your nails to your dark eyes by using a dark varnish such as OPI Skyfall collection in Live and Let Die followed by Nails inc Caviar Top coat to seal and protect the colour.
Be kind to your lips in the cold winter months and prep with Dainty Doll wonderbalm – Working Girl. Next apply Rimmel 1000 kisses lip tint – nothing but nude to add staying power, followed by Barry M lip gloss wand in Coconut Clear to add a glossy gorgeous finish.
Moisturise your skin using Gatineau Radiance Cream, next apply Rimmel Fix and Perfect Pro Primer to create a flawless skin base for your foundation to sit on. Use a light foundation such as Daniel Sandler invisible radiance foundation buffed on with a firm blusher brush. Add Rimmel wake me up concealer under the eyes to diminish darkness. Smile and apply NYX Illuminating face and body bronzer in Narcissistic to the apples of your cheeks to create a natural flush.
