The Bombshell Make-up Tutorial – featuring Millie Mackintosh

In this video I transform the gorgeous Millie Mackintosh into a bodacious Bombshell – inspired by one of my 10 iconic looks – with the help of some of Millie’s incredible lashes!

Application Tips

Prepare the skin with Charlotte’s Magic Cream, massaging the product into the skin and next apply Wonderglow for a golden glow. For a more luminous dewy complexion, mix the Wonderglow with your shade of Light Wonder foundation and apply all over the face. Use The Retoucher on targeted areas, such as redness, blemishes and dark circles, tapping the product on to the skin for a heavier coverage. Use Airbrush Flawless Finish with the Powder & Sculpt Brush tracing down the t-zone and under the eyes to eliminate any extra shine.

Now you have a flawless base, take your Brow Lift and use the brush end to comb the hairs upwards revealing their natural shape. Then fill in the brows with fine strokes in the direction of the hair growth. To accentuate and lift the arch use the central highlighter across the bottom of the brow.

Apply the Feline Flick along the upper lash line dragging the pen down to a point on the inner corner to elongate the eye. Three quarters of the way across the lashes stop and make a point on the outer corner of where you want the flick to go. Angle the pen and join these up, thickening the colour for added drama. Take care to ensure the flicks are symmetrical on either side.

Apply the Colour Chameleon in Amber Haze, directly from the pencil, over the whole lid taking the colour up to the socket line and along the bottom lash line. Quickly use your finger to blend the colour before the product sets.

To finish of the eyes use Full Fat Lashes Mascara, depositing the product in the root of the lashes to give the eye as much lift as possible. Elongate the eye by using the wand at an angle, dragging the corner lashes outwards. For the bottom lashes, turn the wand vertically and use the tapered end to coat each lash.

Define the lips with Lip Cheat in Kiss n Tell. Look into the mirror and smile, tightening the skin on the lips to see exactly where to apply the pencil. Starting on the outer corners trace the liner just outside the natural lip line. This will help cheat a fuller pout, create perfect symmetry to the lips and stop the lipstick bleeding.

To apply K.I.S.S.I.N.G So Marilyn lipstick you may apply the product straight from the bullet or use the Lip Brush. As the brush is squared off it helps give precision on the outer corners and perfectly angles your cupid’s bow. Use Lip Lustre in Red Vixen for a dialled up Red Carpet sheen.

To define your facial framework use the Sculpt shade of Filmstar Bronze & Glow. Use the Bronzer Brush in large circular motions along the cheeks, across the bridge of the nose and on the corners of your forehead. Suck in your cheeks and carve out killer cheekbones with the Powder & Sculpt Brush, bringing the brush down to define the jawline. Use the highlighter on top of the cheekbones, down the nose and lightly across the lips.

Now that you have the perfect lip you can see how far you need to take the blusher. Swish the Blusher Brush around the outside shade of your Cheek to Chic: Sex On Fire and apply the colour in big circular motions along the cheekbones. Use the central Pop shade on the apple of the cheek to enhance the colour.
