See how we got our make-up looks for the PB Awards
With little time to get ready for the Professional Beauty Awards after a jam packed first day at the show, Eve and I were more than happy to accept an invitation from Mii Cosmetics to take the weight off and be tended to by a pro.
I was up first and gave my lovely artist quite a specific brief – I wanted make-up that was going to last all night with some light contouring and a slightly stronger highlight. I asked for something soft but defining on my eyes (we went with rose gold) to complement the grey liquid lipstick I applied later, and last but not least, I wanted lashes as I never get to wear them because I just can’t get them on myself. Despite applying 14 different products the look took under half an hour to create and the whole lot lasted all through the night, including the lashes!
These are the Mii products used for my look:
Smoothing Face Prep, Absolute Face Base in Utterly Warm 04, Complete Cream Concealer in Confide 02, Enhancing Eye Prep, Mineral Irresistible Face Base in Precious Cream 02, Sculpting Contour Duo, Mineral Radiant Natural Blush in Inspire 02, Brow by Mii Precision Brow Detailer in Impeccably Medium, Brow by Mii Finishing Brow Gel, Forever Eye Crayon in Rose Gold 02, One and Only Eye Colour in Blink 02, Signature Gel Eyeliner in Velvet 02, Love Lashes in Social Butterfly, Showstopping Lash Lover in Diva 01
Eve had one main request – a smokey eye. The final result was a more modern take than standard black using indigo and purple tones to create a smouldering, stand-out look when she was up on stage during the awards.
The products used to create her look are: Enhancing Eye Prep in Alert 02, Mineral Exquisite Eye Colour in Magnetic 07, Forever Eye Crayon in Indigo 04, Mineral Divine Illuminator in Pure Brilliance 01, Highliner Black & Glimmer Gel Pencil in Black/Purple 03, Signature Gel Eyeliner in Ebony 01, Showstopping Lash Lover in Diva 01, Absolute Face Base in Utterly Warm 04, Mineral Radiant Natural Blush in Embrace 04, Mineral Divine Illuminator in Pure Brilliance 01, Brow by Mii Precision Brow Detailer in Impeccably Dark, Brow by Mii Conceal & Contour Duo in Perfectly Cream, Brow by Mii Finishing Brow Gel, Love Lashes in Seductress, Passionate Lip Lover in Crave 09 (limited edition)
