Lips are top of the make-up agenda this season. You too can make a bold statement with a strong, attention grabbing colour like model and mum Miranda Kerr. She stole the show on the red carpet during Paris Fashion week. Allowing her lips to do the talking she kept the rest of her look simple and defined.
So, how can you recreate this look? Experts from new make-up brand Catrice suggest starting with a foundation which is the same colour as your neck, such as Catrice Photo Finish Liquid Foundation €6.99. Thanks to its light-reflecting pigments this will make your complexion look flawless and smooth. Hightlight your cheekbones with Sun Glow Matt Bronzing Powder €4.99. Using the product’s make up brush work the bronzer into the temples sweeping into the hairline and dusting back over the cheekbones for a natural raised finish.
Bring intensity to the eyes with a good eyeliner. Using the brand’s new Precision Eyeliner Pencil €2.79 hold the eyelid at the side so you have a strong base to glide the pencil along. With metallic colours you can add even more intensity to this night-time look. For a smokey look opt for the Smokey Eye Pencil €2.99. The integrated brush applicator allows you to soften the line created for a more smokey finish. For a cat-like finish sweep the pencil up at the end of the eyelid for a curved finish. Next apply a really dark mascara for maximum effect.
Finally, for the pièce de résistance, choose one of the season’s hottest colours to really enhance the lips. Begin by lining them with Catrice’s new precision lipliner. For perfect definition and contours this retractable lipliner with its softly gliding, long-lasting formula and intense coverage keeps lipstick and lipgloss inside the lip area, optimises small irregularities in your lip shape and makes lip make-up last noticeably longer. Next apply the brand’s Colour Show Lip Gloss in Pearl Jam €4.29. The colourful gloss will provide extreme colour, a light texture and a show stopping result.
