Make-up Muse: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
Published 17/05/2011 | 15:48
Model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was recently spotted at the 'Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty' event, looking stunning in a plunging, custom-made silk gown by Burberry. She continued the sultry theme by teaming barely-there lips, soft golden eyes and some trademark tumbling tresses.
When it comes to the base, Rosie prefers to keep on the side of soft and dewy. Swap heavy formula for a sheer foundation like Nars Sheer Glow and apply with the fingertips for a light finish. Any remaining imperfections can be dotted out with Rimmel's Match Perfection Concealer and under eye bags can be worked away with Clarins Instant Light Brush On Perfecter highlighter.
Setting the base can be tricky. Some powders clot and cake while some weigh down foundation. Keep things light with MAC's Select Sheer Loose Powder and work gently across the nose, cheeks, forehead and chin. As always, it's a balance between keeping the shine at bay and not clogging the skin.
Rosie's look is calm and cool, so she has no fears about adding some drama with the liquid liner. Those eyes are almost always the focal point of her look. Teaming smouldering golds with loads of lashes, begin framing eyes by grooming brows with a spool and a light pencil before washing eyelids with a nude shadow.
For a similar shimmer, gently blend a gold like MAC's Amber Lights along the lids and into the crease and run a liquid liner along the top and bottom lash line. A few sweeps of volumising mascara like Maybeline's The Falsies will finish the look.
While it will take more then a dab of gloss for most of us to get Rosie's trademark pout, a sheer pink lipstick like Rimmel's Colour Show Off in Tell One should get you somewhere near where you need to be. If you prefer to keep lip colour that little bit lighter, a pale pink like Nars Lip Gloss in Orgasm should be perfect.
For those trademark golden waves, blowdry hair with large rollers and part hair off-centre which adds a fuller finish. Spritz to finish with TRESemme's 24 Hour Body Spray.
Bold, calm, sultry - it's no wonder Rosie is such a hot property!
