Burberry Runway Makeup Collection
A runway-inspired smokey eye look with glitter accents. Offset by soft-matte skin, groomed brows and nude lips; the easy to do yet striking eye make-up becomes the focus
Step 1: Conceal and Base
Let’s start off with the basics; laying down the base. Conceal any imperfections and undereye discolouration with the Sheer Concealer, or the Cashmere Concealer is one of my favourites. I use the shade No.01 Porcelain. Use the concealer to conceal underneath the eyes to reduce any blue tones and to even out the skin.
Step 2: Foundation and Contour
Apply the Burberry Cashmere Foundation for a soft-matte, flawless canvas. For this look, due to previous tanning, I used shade No.26, Beige. The finish really is flawless and matte but with a glow to the skin from beneath. Sculpt your cheekbones with the Face Contour Pen and blend with your fingers or a brush to create gentle dimension to your face. I apply the pen beneath my cheek bones over the cheek hollows, down the sides of my nose, along my jaw lines and to the sides of my forehead, and blend with a small packed brush.
Step 3: Define the Lids
Define your upper and lower lashline with the Effortless Blendable Kohl in Jet Black. Smudge with your fingers for an undone finish or use a brush for more precise application. I did a bit of both, applying to my upper lashes and heavier to my lower lashline before smudging with my little finger and finishing with a pencil brush for a really smokey look.
Step 4: Eye Colour in Charcoal
Apply the Eye Colour Cream in charcoal all over the lid. For a more subtle finish, keep it closer to the upper lash line, or for a more intense smoked out finish like I created, cover your whole lid and blend into the crease with your fingertips or a blending brush. Use the Effortless Blendable Kohl or the Effortless Kohl Eyeliner to the upper lash line to smoke out into the lashes.
Step 5: Apply the Shimmer Dust
Apply the Burberry Fresh Glow Highlighting Pen to where you would like to apply the shimmer dust. This could be your cheekbones, eye lids or anywhere you wish, but for this look I went for my upper and lower lashline. I drew the fresh glow pen onto my upper and lower lash line before taking a pencil brush to dip into the Shimmer Dust in Black Glitter. I gently applied this to my upper and lower lash line, placing glitter as much as I felt would work for the look. Then use your fingers to apply the Shimmer Dust in Gold Glitter over the top of the black glitter. And finish the lashes with the Bold Lash Mascara.
Step 6: Brows and Lips
Use the spoolie end of the Effortless Eyebrow Definer in Barley to groom your brows before filling and defining with the product. When your eyes are complete, coat your lips in the Burberry Kisses Sheer in Nude Beige for a subtle yet buildable colour. I am obsessed with this shade for everyday! So wearable, soft and comfortable on the lips with a touch of shine.
And for the final touch, add the Burberry Fresh Glow Pen to the top of the cheekbones and blend with your fingertips for a subtle and glowing highlight. I absolutely adore how natural this looks and how well it suits my skin tone!
And voila. You’re ready to hit the Burberry Runway.
