It’s Awards season and the red carpet is full of inspo. Luckily, those styles aren’t exclusive to A-listers – you can rock a gorgeous look too! And it’s easier than you think. With a few great products and easy tips, you can be Oscar-worthy too!
Step 1 Build a base
The first step to any great makeup look is gorgeous skin. Not feeling like your skin matches up? Not to worry! Simply, swipe on a primer like wet n wild® HD Primer (R114.95) which works to smooth out pores and fine lines. Then, apply your foundation. Concentrate on areas that bother you and remember to blend well into your hairline and down your jawline. TRY wet n wild® Photo Focus Foundation (R99.95) which has light-adjusting properties making sure you’re ready for the camera every time!
Step 2 Create a glow
Give your skin a subtle luminosity with just a dot of highlighter on your cheekbones, nose bone and Cupid’s bow. If you’re new to highlighting try a stick like wet n wild® Highlighting Stick (R79.95). Draw a thin line on each area and blend well with your fingertips. The heat from your fingers will warm up the product and help it look more natural.
Step 3 Add the drama
For a glam look, let your eyes take centre stage.
Use your lightest shadow shade all over your lid, the medium shade along your crease then build up a smokey finish with the darkest shade. Work in layers, as it’s easier to add more shadow until you have the intensity you desire than to remove it. We love wet n wild® Eyeshadow Trio (R79.95).
To really stand out, add sparkle! Using wet n wild® Eye Shadow Glitters (R34.95) dot the shimmer at the inner corner of your eye to make them pop. Or, swipe the shine along your smokey shadow to create a glittery eyeshadow.
Finish with an intense liner like wet n wild® Proline Graphic Liner (R99.95). Draw as close to your lashes as possible. If you want to create a feline flick, dot the liner where you want the line to finish on both eyes. Make sure they match, then use short, sharp strokes to get your desired shape. If your hands are shaky, rest your elbow on a table when you line. Finally, swipe on two coats of mascara.
Step 4 Get a pretty pout
If the focus is on your eyes, dab a more subtle shade on your lips. Look for formulas that are richly pigmented, long-lasting but also moisturising like wet n wild® Mega Last Lip Colour (R48.95).
