“To wear the Pretty Pastels palette in the day, choose two colours like pink and green or pink and brown and blend them together with a soft brush. The texture of this product will brighten your eye and give a gorgeous lift ideal for sunny spring days. To make a transition into night-time add grey on the outer and the bottom lid of your eye, creating a chic and soft smoky look, the luminosity of those colours will give you a very sophisticated finish.”
Finish off both of these looks with a few coats of 17 Photo Flawless Mascara to accentuate the colour of your eyes.” Vanesa Guallar, 17 make-up artist
Vanesa Guallar, 17 make-up artist Vanesa Guallar, who has over ten years experience in the make-up industry, having trained with some of the finest talent in the world, comments, “These palettes will help you achieve the essential subtle feminine look key this spring season. Perfect to brighten up your make-up after the cold winter, the hint of colours in these palettes will add warmth and glow at the same time.”
“They are fantastic for achieving the perfect day to night look. Use the light colours during the day and for night-time get a soft smoky look with the dark browns or greys.”
“The best way to use the Metallic Nude palette during the day is by blending the gold and the soft brown together on the top of your eyelid creating a classic glowy spring look. For night-time, apply the soft pink from the Pretty Pastels palette on the inner corner of the eye and define your eyebone and bottom lid with the dark brown, creating a soft and elegant smoky eye.”
