How to Add a Rocker Edge to your Beauty Look

Ever dream of being a rock star for just one night? Well, you can be—quite frankly; you can be whomever you want! This is why I love makeup so much and encourage my clients to try something new because they can always wash it of (unlike a bad haircut).

With a few simple steps, you can feel like Kate Moss strolling through the streets of London!

    The products I used:

  • Joe Fresh Eye Palette
  • Pür Minerals Eye Polish in Caviar
  • Vasanti Kjal Liner in Black
  • Lancôme Grandiose Extreme Mascara
  • Rimmel London Lip Liner in Nude
  • Lancôme Absolue Lipstick in Rich Cashmere
  • Urban Decay HD Gloss

Follow these steps to achieve my rock star holiday glam look:

Step 1: Using the Joe Fresh eyeshadow palette, I mixed the two lightest shades together and blended them under my eyebrow. I like to mix these two shades because one is a shimmer and the other is a matte. Having a slight shimmer under your brow bone creates the illusion of a higher brow.

Step 2: Next I take the light brown matte shade and buff it into my crease. This creates a smooth transition before adding the dark colour. This step is very important and should never be left out.

Step 3: I take the matte black shade and use it all over the bottom of my lid and work it into the crease. Don’t be afraid to be heavy with this colour. You want it to look super dark and pigmented. Blending is your best friend for this step. (Blend until your wrist hurts!)

Every time I do a smoky eye like this, I leave the foundation until after the eye is complete. This way you can wipe off any fallout without ruining your foundation.

Step 4: To take this look to the next level, I add Pür Eye Polish in Caviar. This is a unique gel-like shadow. The texture is wet and it really sticks to your shadow. I use a tapping motion and apply this shade all over my lower lid. Don’t bring this colour into your crease!

Step 5: Using the Vasanti Eyeliner in Black, I smudge it on my lower lash line, upper lash line and in my water line. I then blend out the lower lash line with a smudging brush to really create drama. I take the same black and brown shadow I used on my eye in the previous step and blend it with the eyeliner. This makes blending the liner very easy and gives a seamless appearance.

Step 6: I decided to use Grandiose Extreme mascara. It gives you major volume and length. I also threw on a pair of falsies to really intensify this look!

Step 7: I then used a Rimmel London lip liner in Nude to line my lips. I love this shade because it almost matches my natural lip colour. I like to overdraw my lips to give the appearance of a fuller lip (no needles required). When rocking a smoky eye, it is usually best to keep a nude lip. I used Lancôme Absolue lipstick in the colour Rich Cashmere. This is the perfect nude shade with a hint of pink. I then added Urban Decay HD gloss on top to really make my lips shine!
