 Look #1:

The Eyes: Start with Urban Decay’s Primer Potion for eyes to mattify and prep the lids. Using Urban Decay’s Naked Palette, press on ‘Half Baked’ over the lid up to the crease with a flat eyeshadow brush and blend at the edges. Add ‘Dark Horse’ to the outer corner, again blending any harsh lines. Add black liquid eyeliner, creating wings at the corners, and finish with lashings of volumising mascara.

The Lips: Simply apply Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in ‘Across the Universe’ in thin layers, blotting between applications.

Look #2:

The Eyes: Begin by patting Maybelline Colour Tattoo Crème Eyeshadow in ‘Pink Diamond’ across the lids. Using this as a base, use ‘Sin’ from the Urban Decay’s Naked Palette to intensify the colour. Then, using a matte dark brown, contour the crease and outer corner for added definition. Add ‘Virgin’ to the inner corner as a highlighter. Line the lashes with a black gel liner and coat the lashes in mascara.

The Lips: Add Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in ‘Starry Eyed’ in thin layers with a lip brush. Blot and reapply.

Look #3:

The Eyes: Apply No7 Stay Perfect Shade and Define Crème Eyeshadow Stick in ‘Cool Mink’ across the lid. Using the Urban Decay Naked Palette, pat ‘Hustle’ on to the outer corner and along the lashline, blending well. Line the lashes with a black kohl pencil. Finally, add mascara and individual false eyelashes into the corners for a wide-eyed flutter.

The Lips: Apply Tanya Burr Lip Gloss in ‘Chic’. Voilà!
