MANGA SPARKLE

Your skin is like a canvas, so to get the best results, work out what it needs. Is it dry or oily? Add moisture where it needs it or if its a bit flaky use an exfoliator. On Thi we used S5 Vitality Mask as it does both; exfoliates and plumps the skin whilst hydrates it. Take it off with a damp warm muslin cloth - this exfoliates too- and then we spritzed Bodhi & Birch Rosa Rosa Hydrating Toner all over the skin, which hydrates and helps the Organic Rose Otto + Honey Cream to absorb.

Next we used All You Need Is Me organic balm, versatile like the famous 8 hour cream yet with the purest ingredients. It can be used anywhere to hydrate or add a sheen to the skin.

Next we used Spectrum buffer brush with Ilia Foundation which has a medium to full buildable coverage in pale to dark shades. As Thi has great skin we used a bigger brush to apply a thin layer of foundation. The rule of thumb is to match the face with the colour of the body, therefore we used a lighter shade on the face so that the overall skin tone will be the same. As the Ilia Foundation conceals well, we used it on the lips to neutralise the lip colour, which will help the lipstick colour 'pop'. Blot with a tissue to remove the excess.

We applied Ilia Kashmir Lipstick, powdered with RMS Invisible Silica ‘Un’ Powder for a more matte finish. 

If you prefer a bolder colour you can use OCC Hoochie Vegan Lip Pencil instead to line and fill in lips, which works well to add definition as a base for OCC Vegan ‘Hoochie’ Liquid Lipstick which we add later in the tutorial.

To shape brows we used the highly-pigmented Zao 613 pencil which has a cool taupe tone. If you prefer an eye brow gel, 100% Pure Contour/Eyebrow Gel works well and is longlasting too. We also love the cool medium brown cream/gel for contouring. If these shades are too cool in tone try Ere Perez Eyebrow Pencil, which has a warmer blonde tone. For a natural finish make sure you brush the brows upward. This will blend out any lines and remove excess of product.

To create a graphic eye line we used Benecos purple eye pencil extending on the lower lash and waterline, and outwards to the temples.

Next apply OCC Vegan ‘Hoochie’ Liquid Lipstick with Spectrum lip brush to add impact and shine. For a matte alternative you can try100% Pure 'Tempest' Matte Fruit Pigmented Lipstick.

Add Tata Harper Very Illuminating to the top eye lids - and top of cheekbones or anywhere else you like to highlight. As it is a cream this will hold the glitter in place, or you may prefer the All You Need Is Me organic balm as its a bit stickier. For longlasting hold use a lash glue. Use Spectrum B03 flat eye shadow brush to press chunky silver Biodegradable Glitter into the cream highlighter. You can hold a tissue underneath the eyes to catch any of the drop off. But don't worry too much if some sparkles have dropped under the eye, it will add to the effect and break the strong purple liner giving a contemporary look. If you prefer, you can use a clean spoolie brush to remove the offending glitters.

To hydrate your body use Neal's Yard Remedies Organic Geranium Orange Body Lotion, which absorbs quickly and is in keeping with the semi-matte finish of the face.

For hair we used Less Is More Salt + Elderflower Texture Hair Spray to give it an undone more beachy textue. Pulling out some sections and holding it in place with a gentle mist of Yarok Feed Your Hold hairspray.
