Capital’s Summertime Ball 2016: Best Of Beauty

This weekend Wembley held Capital FM’s annual Summertime Ball, one of the biggest pop concerts in the calendar.

The line up – as always – was super star-studded, with the likes of Ariana Grande, Little Mix and Will.I.Am all performing.

Whilst the music totally stole the spotlight, we couldn’t help but also admire some of the gorgeous make-up looks on the red carpet.

Here’s a breakdown of our absolute faves…

Zara Larsson

We have to admit, Zara has won the crown for our favourite make-up look.

Feathered brows are taking over the scene and Zara demonstrated how to pull them off perfectly.

They look gorgeously natural, which was a perfect match for the rest of her make-up, which was minimalist and dewy.

For a similar perfect-for-summer finish, we love the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless foundation.

Louisa Johnson

We are low-key obsessed with Louisa’s icy metallic hair. The colour combined with her tousled waves gives off the ultimate mermaid vibe, which we obviously love!

Taking our eyes off her hair for a second, we also adore Louisa’s pop of colour make-up.

The navy blue shade on her lower lash line is a gorgeous subtle statement and is the perfect way to effortlessly switch things up.

Grace Chatto

For anyone who struggles with liquid liner but loves the look of it, take note of this trick.

Grace has used black eye shadow to create her wing shape rather than eyeliner – and it looks flawless.

Eyeshadow is a lot easier to control so is the perfect alternative for your wings if liner isn’t your strong point.

Perrie Edwards

This look gives us LIFE.

Perrie’s classic smoky eye and taupe lips are basically how we’d like our make-up to look every day of the week.

We love how Perrie has used super-long lashes to add even more glamour.

Any lip colour would look stunning with this look but we defo approve of Perrie’s chic nude shade.

Pair Lord and Berry’s Vogue Semi Matte Lipstick in Smarten Nude with their Ultimate Lip Liner in Toasty to recreate Perrie’s lip look.

Jess Glynne


Miaow! Talk about a cat eye. Jess was channelling our eyeliner goals with wings so big she could have flown away.

Her dark-as-night liner was paired with Twiggy-style lower lashes, which created the ultimate retro look.

We recomment L’Oreal Paris Superliner Superstar Eye Liner for a similar finish.

The rest of Jess’s makeup was left natural, and her luscious auburn hair was braided back to let her ah-mazing eyeliner take centre stage.
