  • Day look.



Elias says, “The colours chosen on these looks suit all skin tones so can be worn by all women. For the complexion, the shades that suit most skin types are orangish or brownish tones. For daytime eyes, an eyeliner works perfectly on everyone, but the application will differ depending on the shape of your eye.”

Get the look

1. For a natural, beautiful lipase, apply a small amount (the size of a 50-fil coin) of Dolce & Gabbana’s UV cream before your foundation to add some daytime luminosity.

2. Using the lighter shades from the Dolce & Gabbana Tangier Eye Colour Quad, blend into your lashline for a subtle splash of colour, before lightly lining the eyes with Chanel’s black eyeliner.

3. For luscious lips, apply a thin layer of Make Up For Ever’s Rouge Artist Lipstick in 51 for a pretty pink pout.

Elias says, ‘As with the day look, these colours on the complexion and eyes will suit everyone. It’s easy to transform your day look to night-time simply by building up your shadow. Smoky eyes suit all eye shapes, and the application is easy for anyone to achieve.”

1. Smoke out eyes with the darker shades from Dolce and Gabbana’s Eye Colour Quad in Tangier and blend up towards your brow, going as bold as you dare!

2. Boost lashes with a coat of Dior’s Blackout Mascara and shape brows with Guerlain’s Eyebrow Pencil.

3. To make lips look fuller, line with Guerlain’s Le Stylo Lip Liner in 42, before applying a layer of the Guerlain’s KissKiss Lipstick in Peach Fizz 341.
