#GRWM: Red Carpet VS Instagram Makeup Tutorial with Sofia Tilbury

Darlings, it’s award season and your Instagram feed must be full of so many beautiful looks from the red carpet. My niece, Sofia Tilbury, shows you the difference between an HD flawless beauty Look inspired by Instagram and a classic Hollywood red carpet look as seen on celebrity starlets.

Application Tips

The Red Carpet Look:

Step 1: Prep your skin using Charlotte’s Magic Cream moisturiser, and tap in the Magic Eye Rescue cream around your eyes.

Step 2: Apply the Wonderglow face primer for a gorgeous, glowing base to your makeup.

Step 3: Lightly apply your Magic Foundation, buffing in for a flawless, poreless finish. Use The Retoucher to cover any blemishes and brighten your under-eye area. Buff in the Mini Miracle Eye Wand concealer under your eyes to conceal any dark circles.

Step 4: Define your eyebrows lightly for a fluffy, natural-looking brow that has that super model arch. Highlight underneath the brow bone with the Mini Miracle Eye Wand to add definition and frame the brows. Then brush through with the Legendary Brows eyebrow gel to fill in any sparser areas.

Step 5: Curl your eyelashes with the Life Changing Lashes eyelash curler, then, using the Eye Blender Brush, apply a wash of colour from the Eyes to Mesmerise cream in Bette all over the lid, blending out. Then use a Smudger Brush to apply along the lower lash line.

Step 6: Using the Enhance shade from the Luxury Palette in Dolce Vita, take the Blender Brush and lightly blend along the outer V shape of your eye.

Step 7: Line the upper lash line, creating a feline flick using The Classic eyeliner in Audrey.

Step 8: Apply a gorgeous glitter using the Pop shade from the Dolce Vita palette, using your finger to wash it over your eyelid. Then apply lashings of Full Fat Lashes mascara for a wide-eyed gaze.

Step 9: Lightly contour in the hollows of your cheekbones and along your jawline and side of your nose, buffing in for a subtle, yet carved out facial framework. Then dot the Beauty Light Wand highlighter on top of your cheekbones and use the Smudger Brush to blend into the inner corners of your eyes, and under your brow bone.

Step 10: Dust Airbrush Flawless Finish powder wherever your skin gets a little oilier for a gorgeous red carpet finish.

Step 11: Line your lips using the Lip Cheat lip liner in Pillow Talk. Then apply the K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Penelope Pink on top for the perfect nude lip.

Step 12: Apply a swish and pop of blush with Cheek to Chic in Ecstasy to the apples of your cheeks for your final flourish!

 

The Instagram Look:

Step 1: Prep your skin using Charlotte’s Magic Cream moisturiser, and tap in the Magic Eye Rescue cream around your eyes.

Step 2: Apply the Wonderglow face primer for a gorgeous, glowing base to your makeup.

Step 3: Buff in your Magic Foundation, building up coverage for a super flawless finish. Use The Retoucher to conceal any other areas that need extra coverage, and the Mini Miracle Eye Wand under your eyes to brighten the eye area.

Step 4: Create a more defined brow using your normal eyebrow pencil plus a darker one so you can create a sharp angle at the end, but with an ombre finish at the beginning of your brow. Sculpt a thicker brow for that perfect Instagram look!

Step 5: Conceal under the brow bone and above your eyebrow for extra definition to your eyebrows. Use the Legendary Brows eyebrow gel to comb through and fill in any sparser areas of your brows.

Step 6: Curl your eyelashes with the Life Changing Lashes eyelash curler, then, using the Eye Blender Brush, apply a wash of colour from the Eyes to Mesmerise cream in Bette all over the lid, blending out, but building coverage. Then use a Smudger Brush to apply along the lower lash line.

Step 7: To add a smokey eye, blend the Enhance shade from the Luxury Palette in The Dolce Vita in the outer V, and then use the Smoke shade on a Smudger Brush along the lower lash line and blend towards the outer corner for a more intense gaze.

Step 8: Use the Mini Miracle Eye Wand to sculpt underneath the eye makeup for extra definition.

Step 9: Create a dramatic feline flick using the Rock ‘n’ Kohl eyeliner in Bedroom Black. Add the Pop shade to the inner and centre of your eyelid, then go over your feline flick with The Feline Flick liquid eyeliner.

Step 10: Add Full Fat Lashes mascara, then apply false eyelashes on top.

Step 11: Contour in the hollows of your cheekbones and along your jawline and side of your nose, buffing in for killer cheekbones. You can use your Magic Foundation to add more definition underneath your contour.

Step 12: Then liberally apply the Beauty Light Wand highlighter on top of your cheekbones, forehead, nose & cupid’s bow and use the Smudger Brush to blend into the inner corners of your eyes, and under your brow bone.

Step 13: Apply Airbrush Flawless Finish powder to blot any areas of oiliness.

Step 14: Line your lips using Lip Cheat lip liner in Iconic Nude. Finish your lip look with Hollywood Lips liquid lipstick in Best Actress for a fierce matte lip.
