Millie Mackintosh decided to shake up her usual style at last night’s EE & InStyle Pre-BAFTA Party, she rocked ultra-cool gothic make-up that left us beauty geeks drooling. She teamed a bold, blood-rep lip with bronzed, glowing skin, that struck the perfect balance between edgy and pretty.
Fancy giving her look a go? Here’s what you need to know…
Step One: After prepping skin with your usual skincare, buff Rimmel’s Wake Me Up Foundation, £8.99, over your complexion. Not only will it even out your skin, but it’s full of brightening particles that’ll give you a Millie-worthy glow.
Step Two: Millie’s a big fan of Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze & Glow, £49, the two-in-one palette has a matte bronze that works a treat for warming up skin and defining those angles. Dust a little under your cheekbones, over your temples and along your jawbone. Then use the highlighting powder to add a stroke of radiance to the high points of your face (think, tops of cheekbones, bridge of your nose and brow bone).
Step Three: Boost your glow even more by dusting a little of Hourglass’ Ambient Lighting Blush in Diffused Heat, £28, over the apples of your cheeks.
Step Four: Get gothic with a slick of Kevyn Aucoin’s The Exert Lip Colour in Bloodroses, £28, the vampy red shade is universally flattering on all skin types and the perfect dupe for Millie’s loud lip.
Keep these vampy looks coming Millie, we’re loving it.
