On page 65 of our April issue we celebrate 17 years of ELLE South Africa with 17 pairs of beautiful heels! Take a peek here and join Poppy behind the scenes on shoot day. Plus, we’ve asked make-up artist Shahnaz-Cola Wrensch at Supernova to tell us how to get the look, step by step:
When we celebrate, we celebrate in style – our modern-day Cinderella missed her midnight curfew! Get the party look here:
STEP ONE: Moisturise
Moisturise the skin with Dr Haushka Rose Cream.
STEP TWO: Foundation
Apply Benefit Oxygen Wow Flawless Foundation (available on Asos.com) with a buffing brush. Alternatively, use M.A.C Mineralise Moisture foundation or, for darker skins, try M.A.C Matchmaster foundation.
STEP THREE: Concealer
Apply Clinique Airbrush Concealer under the eyes
STEP FOUR: Eyes
Apply M.A.C Paint Pot in Bare Study to the lid and up to the crease; contour the crease using Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in Sable. Go over the paint pot with Inglot AMC Pure Pigment in no 14. Fill in the brows using M.A.C eye pencils in Fling and Lingering. Apply Maybelline The One by One Volum' Express in Black.
STEP FIVE: Contour and highlight
Contour below the cheek bone and jaw line using the Smashbox Contour kit, and highlight above the cheek bone and into the temple with M.A.C Magically Cool Liquid Powder.
STEP SIX: Cheeks
Apply M.A.C blush in Peaches.
STEP SEVEN: Lips
Apply M.A.C lipstick in Fusion Pink and then, to create a matte effect, dab Inglot AMC Pure Pigment in no. 66 on the centre of the lips.
STEP EIGHT: Final touches
Finish with a sweep of M.A.C Prep & Prime translucent finishing powder on the forehead, nose and under the eyes.
We love: glittery nails!
