Imagine: Vamp Louise Brooks
Who: Tragic Screen Siren
How you do: To get moonlit swathed skin and haunting eyes you need to start by creating a ghoulishly pale complexion with Light Wonder (Fair 1). Achieve silver screen matte skin by sealing it with Air Brush powder. Sculpt straight brows by combing through Brow Lift. Build in shadows using my Vintage Vamp eye shadow palette; blend an almond shape around and into the eye socket, and then smoke outwards and upwards. The vamp’s sullen pout can be lined and filled with Savage Rose, followed by a blast of sumptuous Night Crimson.

Imagine: A miniscule vial of potion later, and Louis Carroll’s world will swallow you whole.
Who: Queen of heart-breaking herself Christina Ricci
How you do: Dab white face-paint onto the face using a sponge for a cloud-like effect. Sponge over eyebrows and eyes. Create cartoony cheeks by dabbing Velvet Underground onto the apple of the cheek. Groom intentionally ‘drawn on’ brows with Grace K Brow Lift pencil. Use The Sophisticate palette to contour and hollow the eyes, working into the socket and below waterline. Enhance further with Audrey eyeliner in the inner rim. Apply face-paint to lips, before drawing a heart shape with Savage Rose, fill with Velvet Underground.

Imagine: You don’t want to cross this cat’s path. Who knew an omen would look this good?
Who: Sultry, midnight-skulking black cat à la Kate Moss
How you do: Create a flawless base using Light Wonder, and sculpt with Filmstar Bronze & Glow. Contour catty eyes with a wash of grey in the eye socket – dragging the brush outwards and upwards. Create the exaggerated Feline Flick by drawing a dot in the corner of your eye at a higher point than normal, join up and line eye out to the inner corners. Curl lashes, and brush on Full Fat Lashes for intense flutter. Add individual lashes.

Imagine: A brazen, bunny bombshell; she’s delicious but devious.
Who: Jessica Rabbit on the rampage
How you do: Start with a dewy, flawless base. Sculpt killer cheekbones using Filmstar Bronze & Glow. This look is all about a sculpted 1950s eye. Start by lining the top lash-line with black pencil for intensity, and assert further with the Feline Flick. Create 1950s inspired arched brows using Brow Lift – brush into place and set with gel. Line lips with Kiss ‘n’ Tell, and then amp up with the seductively charged lipstick, So Marilyn. For added Va Va Voom layer on slicks of Red Vixen lustre. Flirty lashes are curled and coated with Full Fat Lashes. Dazzling sequin dress, optional.

Imagine: Lady in green. She’s tantalizing but toxic.
Who: A hint of Poison Ivy
How you do: This look has a whiff of hypnotic 70s disco diva. You can really intensify with permed, power hair. Start by creating a dewy base with my Magic cream and then follow with skin-beautifying Light Wonder. Sculpt your cheekbones using Filmstar Bronze & Glow. Then, use The Rebel palette to create an emerald eye; blend and smoke outwards and upwards into an oval shape. Curl lashes, and finish with Full Fat Lashes. A shot of coral lip is the final flourish.
