Straight from band rehearsals in your best friend’s garage, this sexy indie look can be rocked anywhere and anyway you like. Eco makeup artist, Emmily Banks, explains how to create a little extra attitude with her Garage Glam Get the Look.

Prep the skin by warming a small drop of Just Jojoba, jojoba oil in your hands and press lightly onto the face and neck. Allow a few minutes to absorb before applying Vapour Organic Beauty Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation. Use a foundation brush to apply to the forehead, nose, cheeks, chin and neck. Blend out to create an even, medium coverage.


To add some sexy sculpting and definition to the face use Lily Lolo Mineral Bronzer Powder. Apply the powder using the angled Lily Lolo Blush Brush, beginning just below the cheekbones and sweeping up towards the temples. Layer the colour until adequate shadowing has been created. Finishing with a lighter dusting across the forehead and just below the jawline.

For a little extra drama to the cheekbones use Lily Lolo Pressed Blush in ‘Tawnylicious’. Using the same brush begin at apples of the cheeks, sweeping diagonally up along the cheekbone toward the hairline. Ensure you continue to blend as you build colour for a flawless finish.

To turn the eyes up to maximum volume use Lily Lolo Eye Palette in ‘Smoke and Mirrors’. Begin with a light layer of ‘Silhouette’ over the entire eyelid and below the bottom lash line. Then continue to build depth using ‘Intrigue’, working into the crease of the eyelid, along the top and bottom lash line and from the outer corners of the eye, blending up and out toward the brow line.

Follow with a generous eye line using W3LL People Hypnotist Natural Mineral Eye Pencil. Apply as close to top and bottom lashes as possible, building up the thickness along the top lashes and extending just past the outer corner of the eye. Then smudge the line slightly to soften and blend. Complete with several coats of Ere Perez Black Volumising Waterproof Mascara for a thick luscious lash line.

When it comes to the brows - don’t be shy! Use INIKA Certified Organic Brow Pencil in ‘Brunette Beauty’ to create dark, definitive brows. Add extra volume and shape to the brow using short, upward strokes and then set those beauties in place with Ere Perez Aloe Lash and Brow Gel Mascara.


For a rocking, rich pout, line and colour the lip first using INIKA Certified Organic Lip Liner in ‘Safari’. Not only will this add an amazing depth of colour and extra staying power but you can also create a fuller lip by tracing the line slightly on the outside of your natural lip line. Finish with a generous coating of Nudus Lipstick in "Dirty Diana".
