1 INFALLIBLE PRO-MATTE™ FOUNDATION CLASSIC IVORY

For a glamorous look and flawless complexion, start by creating the perfect base using a liquid matte finish foundation. Apply the product using a damp beauty brush or sponge stating from the centre of your face and working your way out. The damp sponge will allow your makeup to melt into the skin for flawless coverage.

2 BROW STYLIST PREP & SHAPE PRO KIT - MEDIUM TO DARK

The easiest way to add structure to your look and frame your face is to draw on your brows. If you have thin brows like Xiao, use a brow pencil to draw out the shape, then fill in any sparse areas with the pencil. Use a spoolie to brush the brows up and out for a completed look.

3 COLOUR RICHE LUMINOUS OMBRÉS- INCREDIBLE GREY

After drawing on your brows, use a grey shadow palette to achieve the ultimate smoky eye. Apply a dark grey or black shadow onto your eyelid and on your lower lash line with an angled brush. Then, apply a lighter shade of grey onto the inner corners and inner portion of your lids. Finish off by blending the two shades together with a fluffy brush. Add more of the dark shade as needed!

Enhance your lashes with a volumizing and lengthening mascara. Apply two coats of the product onto your upper and lower lashes, moving your hands in a back and forth motion as you apply to avoid clumping.

The final step in this glamorous makeup look? The red lips. Use L'Oreal's red lip colour palette to contour your mouth, applying the darker shade of red first. Next, apply a lighter shade of red onto the centre of your mouth to achieve the appearance of fuller lips!
