To prep skin we spritzed MV Skincare Hydrating Rose Mist* and massaged MV Instant Revival Booster* - a pick me up for stressed, tired and sun-damaged skin - into the face from centre outwards to promote lymphe drainage. Also try Madara Superseed Oil*, a dry oil full with omega 3-6 goodness especially for dehydrated, irritated and fragile skin.
Balm lovers check out All You Need Is Me it is beautiful on lips or anywhere where the skin is dry, irritated or rough. If skin feels a little rough try Tata Harper Refining Cleanser* that exfoliates gently. Sensitised or ezcema skin-suffereres do well to try Pai Camelia Rose Hydrating Cleanser* prior to prep, it is super soothing and the whole range is formulated for sensitive skin.

Next we used RMS Un-Cover #11 to give light to medium dewy base that looks super natural. For a longer lasting more mattifying finish try Ilia Vivid Foundation F2 or Juice Beauty CC Cream that gives skin a beautiful tint and glow with spf 30. Set the base with RMS Un-Powder* our favourite natural powder as it is invisible, does not cake, and keeps the skin radiant yet not shiney.
On the eyes we used Gressaskin Lipboost* in Brilliant, this metallic golden colour is light, non-sticky and multi-purpose! Also check Vapour Mesmerise Eye Colour Radiant for cream metallics like the copper Firefly or Sugar a golden peachy pink. We used a dab of organic Ilia At Last multi-stick to colour the lips nude, A Fine Romance was used on the cheeks. Organic Vapour Aura Multi-Use, Tata Harper Volumising Lip & Cheek Tint and Ere Perez Cheek & Lipbalm also add a natural pop of colour and dewy glow on cheeks.
For concealer we used W3ll People Bio Correct Concealer in Fair where needed; the liquid texture blends well whilst staying put. This caffeine based concealer also works a treat to reduce swelling under eyes.
To contour we blended a touch of Zao Eyeshadow* in 260 and 261 to create a taupe colour. 100% Pure Eyebrow Gel in Taupe has a creamy texture for easy contouring and defining the brows. If you prefer a warmer powder shade try W3ll People Bio Bronzer* or Tata Harper Very Bronzing cream.
Fill in top of brows with Zao Pencil* 602 and brush through to blend colour into brow hairs. Coat the brows lightly with Ilia Mascara, we used Shadow Of A Doubt; just wipe excess colour off with a tissue before your brush the brows up.
