  1. Prep your skin: Before you start with the process of contouring, it's wise to prepare your skin with Olay Moisturizing Cream. Just take a little moisturizer and apply it evenly on your face.
  2. Choose the right colour for you: Choose a bronzer a couple shades darker than your natural skin tone. Stick with a matte bronzer, as opposed to one with shimmer, since it will be used to create depth and sculpt your face.
  3. Find your contours: Apply bronzer along the hollows of your cheeks (the best way to find the right spot for application is to make “fish lips”). Follow the line in a crescent shape — be sure it’s somewhat parallel to the jaw line and reaches up to the hairline.’
  4. Sweep on blush: Using a round blush brush, apply blush to the apples of your cheeks and back toward the temples. This area should be right above the bronzer application to ensure a seamless blend.
  5. Blend: Once you have the blush in place, use the brush to blend the bronzer and blush together using a circular buffing motion. This step is important, as you don’t want obvious lines across your face where one ends and the other begins
  6. Highlight those cheekbones: The final step is highlighting to bring out your cheekbones. Apply the highlighter directly on your cheekbones, just above the blush.

  1. I started by applying Charlotte Tilbury cream shadow in Jean, then blended it over with black gel liner to the eyelid and socket. I blended above with a deep purple/red cream paint by Kryolan, towards the brow. This can be substituted for a normal eye shadow. Shade and stipple under the eye in the same colours, keeping the colour intensity closest to the eye.’
  2. ‘Apply lashes to the top, I used a sparkly pair with gems attached, and used the glue to apply gold glitter flakes under the eyes onto the shaded area. After this, apply a pale base to the rest of your face. Here, I used Urban decay Naked Skin in 1.0.
  3. Contour under the cheekbones and finish by powdering the face with a translucent powder to set. I added further definition by shading in with Urban Decay. Then use the same deep purple/red as you did on your eyes for your forehead.
  4. Fill the brows with a matte brown eyeshadow and angled brush. I exaggerated the arch to create more of a fierce look. Add a bright bold red lip for a pop of colour. I used Bang by Urban Decay and then shaded the outer edge with a black shadow from a Charlotte Tilbury palette.
  5. Finally, finish off by adding more gold flakes to the shaded triangle on the forehead.

  1. Firstly, I wanted to start with as flawless a base as possible. I moisturised my face with Clinique Moisture Surge before priming with Benefit’s POREFessional. For foundation, I decided upon The Ordinary’s Coverage foundation on my BeautyBlender; two coats just to make sure my skin would be perfect.
  2. Next was where the fun started: adding the colour. I took a matte navy MUA eyeshadow on a RealTechniques setting brush to place the shadow all over my forehead. I found the colour adhered best when pushed onto the skin rather than blended. I used the same technique with a Poundland deep purple shadow, this time around just under my eyes – where you would imagine a superhero mask to go. I used the same brush as it helped to blend the two colours together.
  3. Before I did anything else, I made sure I lined my eyes with a jet-black liner, a current favourite of mine is the Laura Mercier Caviar stick in Tuxedo. Next, I lined both my waterline and tightline to get a more dramatic look. Then I moved on to the fiddly bit. Using the NYX Eyeshadow Base in White and a very fine eyeliner brush I randomly placed little dots over the top half of my face. For the outline, I used a RealTechniques detailer brush as the flat shape made it really easy to draw a consistent line.
  4. I thought adding a black lipstick as a base would really make my lip colour pop overall. I tried one of the new Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lipsticks in Pitch Black. It was rather drying but definitely gave the effect I was after, and didn’t highlight dry patches. (Note to self, apply a hydrating lip balm beforehand!)
  5. I loved the idea of replicating the galaxy look on the lips. To do this I used the same two shimmer shadows as before. Using my finger, I smudged Danger all over to begin with before following with Flash in the centre to give an ombre effect. I actually loved how it turned out, but wouldn’t be brave enough to wear it every day.
