There are no rules in make-up, however, we have curated this palette so you can easily master three versatile looks. Read on below to discover how to recreate them. 

#1 Natural

For days when time is limited but you still want to be your best, try our natural look

1. Cleanse the skin with Decode Make-up Remover and then apply Radiate Beauty Balm all over the face, for a glowing complexion. If you feel you need it, dab on some Seamless Cover Concealer to blur imperfections, but there’s no need to be too heavy handed. It’s all about real-looking skin. Finishing the base with applying the Matte Velour Powder over the entire face to set your complexion. 

2. For the eyes, start by applying the base shade of the new Iconoclast Eyeshadow Palette in Velvet Chrome to the entire lid. Next, take the highlight shades to the outer corner of the eye and blend toward the brow.

Add a pop of the prime colour to the brow bone and inner corner of the eye, giving the illusion of a bright, wide-awake look. Finish by smudging the contour shade under the lower lash line.

3. Top the entire look off with a slick of Lash Sophisticate High Definition Mascara on the lashes as well as a touch of our Bronze Summer Glow Powder in the shade Positano on the forehead, below cheekbones and under jawline to recreate the look of a natural tan. 

4. Add a pop of the Blush Palette in Rosé to the apples of the cheeks for a healthy glow and finish with a slick of 5secs Express Lip & Cheek colour in Off Broadway

#2 Polished


Soft but still striking, on days when you want to play up your gaze go for this polished look

1. After creating the perfect base by smoothing Radiate Beauty Balm over the skin, use the Seamless Cover Concealer to reduce the appearance of any imperfections. Set your base and mattify the complexion with the Matte Velour Powder.

2. Apply the Iconoclast Eyeshadow Palette in Velvet Chrome and use a fluffy brush take the prime shade all the way up to the brow bone. Follow by applying the metallic berry highlight shade all over the lid and add a touch of the base colour to the inner corner to brighten up the eyes.

Next, blend the contour shade and the smoke shade together at the outer corner of the eye.

3. Finish the eye makeup look by applying Lash Sophisticate High Definition Mascara on the roots of the lashes and work the brush upwards. 

4. For a defined look, apply our multipurpose 5secs Express Lip & Cheek Colour in Miss Saigon to the apples of the cheeks for a healthy glow. Use Bronze Summer Glow Powder in Coco Island on the forehead, below cheekbones and under jawline to recreate the look of a natural tan and finish with a slick of Colour Brilliance Sculpturing Lipstick in shade The Met.

#3 Dramatic

This look is for evenings, special events or anytime you want to make an impact 

1. Buff the Day to Night Foundation from the centre of the face outwards for full coverage that still appears natural. Blend Seamless Cover Concealer under the eye to hide dark circles and blemishes (if needed) and set everything with a dusting of Matte Velour Powder

2. Use the new Iconoclast Eyeshadow Palette in Velvet Chrome and blend the base colour up to your brow bone. Follow with the metallic berry highlight shade all over lid. Make sure to blend up and into the inner corner.

Next, use the blue grey highlight shade in the crease of your eye socket to create a striking contrast. The trick to making this appear professional? Blend, blend and then blend some more. No harsh lines please.

Amp up the eyes by mixing the blue grey highlight and contour shade onto the centre of the lid. Blend it out to avoid it looking too harsh. You can add in a little of the smoke shade in the outer corner for the appearance of wider eyes.

3. Finish the eye makeup look by applying Lash Sophisticate High Definition Mascara on the roots of the lashes and work the brush upwards. 

4. For a defined look, apply Blush Palette in Merlot to add a wash of colour to the apples of your cheeks. Then, take our Highlighter HD Powder to the highest points of the face for a warm glow. 

5. For a seductive pout, apply a Glazé Lip lacquer in West Village for a high shine finish.
