At the recent Burberry celebrates ‘London in Los Angeles’ Event, we were hooked by the amazing make up looks created by Wendy Rowe, Burberry Make up Artist and worn on Cara Delevingne and Kate Beckinsale.

Cara opted for a stunning smokey eye look with a modern twist while the lovely Kate Beckinsale looked like she had been lit from within with her dewy radiant skin.

Cara’s smokey eye was effortless. By not going too heavy on the eye, the fabulous Wendy Rower created an illuminated smokey effect that is light, fresh and modern and perfect for sultry summer days.

Step 1: Begin by pressing Eye Colour Wet & Dry Glow Shadow, in Nude, onto the middle of the eyelid. Then intensify the natural shadow by sweeping Eye Colour Wet & Dry Silk Shadow, in Rosewood, across the socket line.

Step 2: Dot along the lash line with Effortless Blendable Kohl, in Jet Black. It doesn’t need to look perfect – simply push the colour into the lashes. Next take a clean brush and gently blend the kohl down into the lashes to create an easy to do smokey feel.

Step 3: Using the same pencil, dot along the lower lash line at the root and slightly beyond the outer corner of the eye, making the colour a little heavier at the outer edge. Next, blend with a clean brush to remove hard lines. Finally, with the brush, connect the colour on the top and bottom lash lines at the outer corners.

Step 4: Using an angled eye brush set the look with Eye Colour Wet & Dry Silk Shadow in Jet Black, tracing the colour along the lash line.

Step 5: Use the Effortless Effortless Kohl in Jet Black along the waterline, making sure there are no gaps.

Step 6: For subtle but structured brows, finish with Effortless Eyebrow Definer in Ash Brown, softening them with the brow brush and adding more intensity to the lashes with Bold Lash Mascara in Ebony; the creamy pigment creates dark, bold and rich volume.

Step 7: Keep lips nude with Burberry Kisses in Tulip Pink and finally create the illusion of a fuller mouth by gently pressing Fresh Glow B.B. Cream in Fair, onto lips for a luminous, moisturised glow.
