GIRLS’ NIGHT OUT – could be a hen’s night or just after-work drinks with your best gal pals


A girl’s night out is a great excuse to doll yourself up, so start by drawing some attention to your eyes with a bit of drama. Use Sleek’s highly pigmented Storm i-divine palette to create the smokey eyed look, followed by their Kajal eyeliner to give thick cat-eye-like liner and then team with The Ultimate Mascara from BECCA for fab, flirty lashes. Highlight cheekbones using Korres Zea Mays Blush, and finish with DUWOP’s Venom Gloss to plump up lips and give them a juicy pop of colour.

FIRST DATE (or DATE NIGHT with the hubby) – when you need to look drop-dead gorgeous but not too over-done


When it comes to a first date, your makeup is just as important as what your wear. Show your true colours and opt for a natural glowy look, as opposed to piling on the makeup.  For instant radiance, prime your face with DuWop’s Doubleglow7, which also provides the perfect base for Face Atelier’s Ultra Foundation. Give eyes a flirty fringe with Sleek’s Eye-Drama mascara and complete your look with Sleek Glossed for the perfect non-sticky glossy lips, making them irresistible to kisses!

Sleek’s Dip-it-Duo, a mascara and eyeliner in one, can be paired day or night with Becca Beach Tint to add a touch of colour to lips and cheeks. Ideal for any tote, stay floral fresh with a vial of Kai Perfume Oil and lastly, Korres Pomegranate cleansing wipes for fuss-free makeup removal on the go.

Apply Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector for a natural glow, then add one of Sleek’s blushes to highlight cheeks for a healthy flush. Lastly, avoid gloss and instead opt for a more formal pale lipstick or balm such as Julie Hewett Organic Camellia Balm in rose to add a hint of colour.
