With her own range of make-up, it’s no surprise that British supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley always sports a stunning glow. Steal her Greek goddess look with tips from Apple Sharma.
Get red carpet ready with shimmering eyes. Rosie’s golden eyeshadow brings out the colour of her eyes beautifully. Experiment with metallic bronze, gold and silver shades that will make your eyes pop and give you that old Hollywood glamour for a night out. If you’ve never tested this trend before, try using gold eyeliner on your upper and lower lashline or use complementary colours to go with it, toning it down with brown. Glittering eye shadows are big this season, so why not give it a try? Most importantly, have fun with it.
No eye make-up is complete without the essential mascara. Even those who don’t like to wear a lot of eye shadow can make themselves look bright eyed and bushy tailed with just a simple stroke of this magic band. To get the perfect look, make sure you wait long enough (30 seconds to a minute) between each coat to avoid clumps. To get feathery, natural-looking lashes, invest in a lash comb – it separates out each lash, removes excess product and is easy to use.
Even though we don’t get enough sun during the cooler months, there’s no excuse not to have a glowing skin. Get Rosie’s gorgeous golden complexion by using a bronzer on your face. Apply to cheekbones, across the forehead and down the centre of the nose for a sun-kissed effect. There are a variety of colours available, from copper and terracotta to peach and chocolaty-browns. Choose the right shade for your complexion. For fair skins, a sheer copper is a good place to start. Most shades work for medium skin tones – use a luminous bronzer to add a subtle glow and brown for contouring. For dark skin, try a shade darker than the complexion – a chocolatey-brown is ideal.
When you’ve got bold or sparkly eye make-up, it’s best to balance it out with nude lips. It might look simple to achieve but can be tricky. To get that perfectly natural-looking pout, it’s important to prep your lips first. Dab some concealer to tone down naturally pink lips and fill it in with a nude lip pencil to bring out the true colour of the lipstick. Nude doesn’t have to be boring; there are a wide variety of shades. Choose one that is closest to your complexion and has the right finish – semi-matt is ideal.
With the winter chill picking up, one of the most important regimes is to keep your skin moisturised at all times. There are plenty of great options in the market to choose from. Make sure you use a good-quality day cream with a minimum SPF 15 factor to protect you from the sun or a perfecting cream to give you an even-toned texture. Never go to bed without removing your make-up. Your skin repairs most effectively at night, so a good cleansing routine followed by a deep mositurising night cream will take you far and your skin will thank you for it.
