What easy tips do you have for us to recreate the A/W beauty looks?
For skin a tinted moisturiser and then an All in One Base will give you a natural powdered matte look on face. Also using a mattifying primer such as The Body Shop Matte It will also help create a smooth face for foundation and keep shine at bay. Using your finger dab an eyeshadow close to your lip colour and apply softly to create a velvet lip finish which lasts. Too much though can make the lips look like they are cracked.
Creating a smoky eye is something many people struggle with, what are your useful tips?
Tips for smokey eye is use a dark soft kohl pencil first in the inside inner waterline of eye top and bottom and smudge to lashes. Use stronger line on top and apply strong dark shadow and blend to socket line. Use the socket line as your guide and soften edges going no further than the bone. Add Plenty of mascara or false lashes which can add to the look.
The same with an eyeliner flick, any useful tips?
With the flick applying it first with a sharpe pencil to draw outward from the bottom outer corner at an angle. Then bring it in to the top. Start if using liquid dab dot to dot resting the brush close to the lash line and join up. Reapply to make sure the line is smooth. Sometimes stretching your eyelid out by pulling with fingers can also help give you a flat base to work from
