1 After the base has set, dust on a touch of bronzing powder to add colour and definition.

Apply it along the hollows of the cheeks, at the temples and along the jawline. Finish with peachy blush on the apples of the cheeks and blend.

2 Use a neutral tone eyeshadow to create a canvas, then add warm taupe along the crease of the eye. Apply liner on the upper lash line and finish with a coat of mascara.

3 Line the lips with a pinkish nude lip pencil and fill in with a peachy pink lipstick for natural glam.

1 Contour the face at the hollows of the cheek, temples and jawline. Add an orange-toned bronzer/blusher to the cheeks for a glam, yet subtle look.

2 Use a mix of brown, plum and black to create an intense smoky eye. Line the bottom lash line for added drama. As a final touch, apply false lashes. Follow this with liquid eyeliner along the upper lash line to conceal the false lashes.

3 Finish with a glossy red lip. Begin by lining the lips to create the perfect shape then top with red lipstick and gloss to finish.
