Over to Lyndsey………
One of my favourite looks this season is a grown-up glitter. To re-create this look at home, prime eyes with Make Up Forever Skin Equalizer Eye & Lip Primer, £17.50, Indulge Beauty.
Primer allows eyeshadow to have something to grip to, making it longer-lasting. Next, apply Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Rose Gold Retro, £23, Indulge Beauty over lids and blend with your finger. Apply a small amount under the eye with a pencil brush and re-apply to intensify the colour.
Define eyes with Buxom Hold The Line Eyeliner Call Me, £14, Indulge Beauty, start on the end of the lash line and work in. Re-sharpen the pencil and draw the flick on using a cotton bud to sharpen up the flick. For a dramatic look, apply in the upper waterline to make eyes pop.
Finish by applying two coats of Make Up Forever Excessive Lash Mascara Black, £9.20, Indulge Beauty for fluttery lashes, remember to curl your lashes before applying mascara.
Cherry lips is another one of my favourite trends this summer for a classic, timeless look. However, the technique in which you apply your lipstick can really make all the difference to the longevity and impact of your lipstick.
First when I created this look I applied Make Up Forever Line Perfector, £14, Indulge Beauty which helps secure lipstick and stop it from bleeding. Then, using Lord & Berry Vogue Matte Lipstick in China Red, £15, Indulge Beauty I applied directly onto the lips then smudged for an edgy daytime look.
For a super glam lip, use a lip brush and apply the lipstick with the bush to the lip line.
It’s always on trend to have healthy skin, for this it’s really important to regularly exfoliate your face, whether your skin is normal, dry or oily. I like to use The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension, £5.50, Indulge Beauty this helps to even out skin tone and reduce the look of blemishes.
Always remember to incorporate a form of SPF into your daily skincare routine, I’m really into putting on sunscreenbefore applying make-up. For this, I use Skin Laundry Advanced Protection Daily Moisturizer, £24, Indulge Beauty which gives sun protection and moisturises skin too.
The key thing for good skin that I always tell my clients is to go to bed with it clean – I cannot stress this enough. I always cleanse and tone before bed using Pai Skincare Lotus & Orange Blossom Bioaffinity Toner, £30, Indulge Beauty which works to sooth and hydrate skin. I then apply Skin & Tonic Rose Mist, £20, Indulge Beauty to further cool tired skin.
So many people ask me how they can achieve the textured brow look at home,
with the right tools and tips it’s simple.
Start by brushing brows through with a brow brush, then using Eylure Brow Pencil, £5.99, Indulge Beauty outline your brows using tiny hair like strokes. Once the outline looks even in shape and size start filling in the brow, keep the density of hair towards the outside of the brow and the beginning of your eyebrow soft and feathery.
To add texture, use B Brow Bar Brow Gel Cardamom Pod, £15, Indulge Beauty to brush the hairs up and give a thicker feel and allow to set in place. One of my favourite tips is to use concealer and a small angled brush to draw around the brow for ultimate definition.
To purchase all the above mentioned products search online for Indulge Beauty, alternatively the high street store can be found at Westfield Stratford City, London where one of the Indulge Beauty team will be on hand to assist with all beauty related questions.
