THE PRODUCTS

Breathe new life into your beauty bag this party season with your pick of Rimmel London's make-up. Fashion-forward colours and long-lasting finishes add up to everything you need for a flawless look that lasts as long as the party.

STEP #1 – SHADES OF GREY

Prep the lid with Rimmel London Exaggerate Undercover Shadow Primer and fix with translucent powder for an even finish. Next, apply Rimmel London Magnif'Eyes Mono Eye shadow in 'Show Off' under the lower lash with a brush, building up the colour at the eye line and feathering it at the edges.

 STEP #2 - DRAW THE LINE

Apply Rimmel London Exaggerate Automatic Waterproof Eye Definer in 'Black' across the edge of the top lashes to meet the blended shadow and across the wet lash line as well. This enhances the whites of the eyes and intensifies the look. Brush eyebrows up then fix with a lick of Brow This Way Styling Gel.

STEP #3 – CURL AND DEFINE

Apply Rimmel London Supercurler 24hr Mascara for volume and visible curl that lasts for up to 24 hours with no need for eyelash curlers. Build it up in layers to frame and define the eyes. Keep any blusher light and finish with a pale lip: the contrast between hard and soft maximises the drama.

STEP #4 – FOCUS ON THE DETAILS

With its slightly edgy, oxidised silver tones, Rimmel London 60 Seconds High Coverage Glitter nail polish in 'Diamond Dust' taps perfectly into this year's take on the Metallic trend – more glamorous grunge than shiny bauble. As easy to apply as it is quick to dry, all it takes is a minute and you're good to go.
