How To Get The Glam Look
In this step by step guide Jay, a No. 7 makeup artist, talks you through how to achieve a glam makeup look. Once you know the basics you can adapt this look to to work with any number of outfits.
Step 1: Introduction
Hi Im Jay, Im a number seven make up artist. Today we're going acheive a glam evening look using the new lash adapt mascara. I've already prepped Vicki's skin using the protect and perfect beauty serum and followed by the protect and perfect day cream. Fabulous for the first signs of aging, you use the day cream you have UVA five star and SPF 15, perfect for pretection from harmful rays from sun
Step 2: Foundation
As we're going for a glam evening look, we're going with stay perfect, really long lasting foundation thats going to stay put throughout the evening. Applying with a brush really helps to get an even finish and you dont use half as much foundation if you use a brush and it gives a flawless brush effect.
Step 3: Concealer
Next im going to use one of my favourite products, Instant Radiance Concealer, absolutely perfect for really diminishing dark areas under the eye. So really get into the corner of the eye, thats where you tend to get most of the dark areas. Really blend that through, but not too much underneath because you dont want the reverse panda effect. A little bit in the corner just to freshen the eye up.
Step 4: Concealer end
Perfect as well, a little bit, just above cupids bow.
Step 5: eye base
Next product is our smooth and brightening eye base, an absolute important item to ensure that your eye shadow really stays in place. So using fingertips, softly blend all over the lids and this really helps prevent eyeshadow from creasing. And it also brings the true pigment of the colour out.
Step 6: Inner eye
As we're going for quite a smokey look I want to keep it quite fresh on the inner corner of the eyes. Anything dark around the eyes really closes the eyes in, so you want to get anything light on the inside. THis is one of our new shades called Starry Lights and its really nice to keep a fresh wash of colour over the lid.
Step 7: Inner eye end
So im going about half way over on the eyelid, just gentley fading away towards the eyebrow. This colours soft enough was well to just use as a highlighter, just under the brow bone.
Step 8: Matte Plump
Our next product is out Matte Plump, this is really whats going to add the drama. So load the brush up and then really guide out where you want the dark and then plenty of blend in, between the two colours. You want them to merge together rather then stop and start to the next colour. Softly bring it up to the brow bone and make sure that just gently merges away to nothing.
Step 9: Matte Plump end
Finishing off with the eye shadow, just a tiny little brush, small bit of eye shadow. Just a little dusting, going along the base lash line.
Step 10: Eyebrows
The next product is beautiful brows in black. Its double ended so you've got the brush on the other end just to soften the brow off. Very gentle strokes, just to define the eye shape. Use the brush to really guide the brow hairs in place. Brows are really important because they completely frame the face, especially if you're a glasses wearer like myself.
Step 11: Eyelashes
So to complete the dramatic glam eye look, we're going to use the new Lash Adapt mascara. This mascaras perfect for really layering up for a night time look with no clumps. One or two strokes for a simple day look, really va-va voom it for the night time with a good six layers. Little zig-zags, just to really comb through those lashes. Real buildable colour, and impact.
Step 12: Eyelashes end
As you can see there a real difference in curve, length, volume. Absolutely beautiful.
Step 13: Lip gloss
Si finishing touches, our poppy king lip gloss, in glamour. Its a really pretty pink, it delicately blends lovely with really soft violet. So apply strai
