Prepare the base by applying a small amount of Mukti Hydrating Moisturiser. Press gently onto the face and neck and allow a few minutes for it to work its hydrating magic on the skin.


Apply INIKA Certified Organic Liquid Mineral Foundation to create a flawless base. Use the INIKA Vegan Foundation Brush and buff outward from the centre of the face until you’ve created a moderate, even coverage.


Apply Au Naturale Creme Concealer to brighten under the eyes and hide any spots or blemishes. Using the Lily Lolo Concealer Brush, dip the smaller end into the concealer and gently apply to any imperfections until they are perfectly blended. For the under eye area use your ring finger to lightly blend into the delicate skin.


Next add a subtle, luminous glow with Vapour Halo Illuminator Moonlight. Use fingertips to apply to brow bones, cheeks and collarbones, carefully blending as you go.



Add some sculpting to the cheekbones and jawline with Lily Lolo Pressed Bronzer. Using the Lily Lolo Blush Brush, swirl over the powder and tap lightly before applying in a sweeping C shape, beginning below the cheekbones and rounding up to temples. Complete with a light dusting of the forehead, nose, chin and neck.


For a subtle, radiant blush, use Au Naturale Organic Creme Highlighter Stick in Rose Gold. Apply directly from the stick to the apples of the cheeks and blend along the top of the cheekbone to create a natural flush.



For eyeshadow use Lily Lolo Eye Palette Laid Bare. Begin by applying a light dusting of Skinny Dip to the entire lid using the Lily Lolo Eye Shadow Brush. Next add a layer of Birthday Suit on the lower lid, blending into the socket and continue up and out towards the outer edge of the top lid. Use the same colour to create a light shadowing along the bottom lash line using the angled end of the Lily Lolo Eyeliner Smudge Brush.


Next, add a generous liquid eye line using Lavera Liquid Eyeliner Black. Beginning at the inner corner of the eye, ensure the liner hugs the lashline, gradually thickening as you move towards the outer corner of the eye.


Follow with a few good licks of W3LL PEOPLE Expressionist Bio Extreme Mascara to really make the eyes pop.


Lastly, ensure the eyes are perfectly framed, using Lily Lolo’s Eyebrow Duo to shape the eyebrows. Use an angled brow brush to apply the pressed powder in short, upward strokes to fill in any gaps and continue to follow the natural shape to the end of your brow. Apply the wax over the power to seal in place and hold brow shape.



A classic glamour is never complete without a pop of red lippy. Use Vapour Siren Lipstick in Courage for a gorgeous deep red pout with a timeless matte finish.
