Get the look: colour-pop pigment

Always ahead of the curve, {NYX Professional Makeup} make it easy to emulate cool, editorial trends with their edit of pro-worthy make up (at purse-friendly prices!). Accessible for every make up maven – from budding beauty-thusiasts to those who wield their liner like the best of ’em – why not try breaking your usual ‘mould’ and attempting a look that’s a little more… daring? Vibrant and playful, a colour-block eye look is beautiful paired with a barely-there base and a nearly-nude lip. This is how you do it…

Keep your skin virtually naked (but thoroughly hydrated). Apply a rich, plumping moisturiser to grant a dewy finish, then spot-conceal pimples, dark circles or redness to unify tone while remaining fresh faced – you want freckles and all your skin’s characteristics to shine. The best-loved {Concealer Wand} comes in a spectrum of shades to help blur any blemishes – it blends seamlessly for a long-lasting, ‘second skin’ look (we won’t tell if you don’t).

To create this bold, crease-proof eye look, prime the lids with a colour-pop pencil – the {Slide On Eye Pencil} in shade ‘Sunrise Blue’ is the ultimate, Côte d’Azur hue – while the {Ultimate Shadow Palette – Brights} boasts a brilliant, swimming pool-turquoise that clings to the crayon to lend lids a jolt of intense, budge-resistant pigment. And don’t feel restricted by typical ‘wings’ – allow your creativity to flourish and experiment with shapes, or try asymmetry. The rule is… there are no rules!

Brush up your brows to enhance your defiance – use the {Tinted Brow Mascara} to achieve power brows to be proud of – then finish with your-lips-but-better {Lip Lingerie} (the model wears ‘Lace Detail’), followed with a slick of corresponding {gloss} in ‘Clear’ to lend a sexy, just-licked finish.

The pièce de résistance? A dusting of NEW {California Beamin’ Face & Body Bronzer} – a subtly shimmering veil of sheer, holiday colour that brings instant, olive-toned warmth to all skin tones – and voila! Get set to turn heads!
