Our May issue just came out this week (have you got your mitts on a copy yet?) and we’ve already been getting so many comments on cover star Lily Collins’ gorgeous make-up look! Combining THOSE brows with a strongly defined blue line and an otherwise super-natural and rosy-cheeked look, it’s totally DIY-able – and we’ve got the skinny on how to get this look at home.
All about that base
“Start with the base, using fingers to blend Hydraglow primer on to the cheeks and blend Lancôme Miracle Cushion foundation all over the face avoiding the eyes area,” says Lancôme elite make-up artist, Shehla Shaikh-Ahmed. “Build the coverage where needed, which can be more in the centre panel of the face, using a patting and rolling motion with the sponge. Add light and lift to the eye area by blending Lancôme Teint Miracle pen in one shade lighter than your skin tone in a triangle under the eyes.”
“Lightly contour the cheeks with Lancôme Belle de Teint, applying only where you see shadow,” says Shehla – so that’d be beneath the cheekbones and along the temples slightly, in an S shape (we know y’all have seen a heap of contouring vids so this one should be simples). “Shape the brows next to help structure the face with Lancôme Le Sourcils Pro. Gently stroke the pencil through the brows and brush lightly after to soften, continuing this process until they are naturally defined and you have the desired definition.”
