Video Tutorial: Quick Everyday Makeup

It can be easy to get stuck in a makeup rut, whether it’s applying your makeup exactly the same way day after day, or even being too intimidated by all the different products to wear it at all. For this week’s YouTube video my friend (and top model booker) Sian, who doesn’t usually even wear foundation, gets a quick makeup lesson and a whole new everyday look.

Representing the likes of Georgia May Jagger, Adwoa Aboah, Iris Law and Suki Waterhouse, Sian Steel is the co-founder of TESS Model Management. As a model booker she’s someone I’ve worked alongside for years, and because she doesn’t get much time to focus on herself, I decided to get her in to my studio to give her a bit of a makeover! Watch this week’s YouTube video to get some tips on how to pep up your everyday makeup regime (and to hear Sian’s insider industry secrets!)…

Sian’s 5-Step Everyday Look

  1. Omorovicza Complexion Perfector

    This is a quick and easy everyday base that feels light and fresh. It’s also got SPF20 protection.

  2. Curl the lashes and apply your mascara. I always curl the lashes before applying mascara.
  3. Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Conic Palette in Glambition 720

    These are really great colours for everyday wear. Use a flat shadow brush to apply your chosen shade across the entire eyelid (I like to Beautypie Eyeshadow Base Brush) and blend it to create a shape that’s slightly bigger than the socket line to create a bigger eye.

  4. Max Factor Masterpiece High Precision Liquid Liner

    To add just a slight hint of definition to the lash line, use this flat-tipped liquid liner right on the lashes. If you want to soften it slightly, just take a cotton bud soaked in Bioderma and smudge it into the root of the lashes.

  5. Blink Brow Bar Brow Build

    Using this brown gel product you can completely transform fine or thin brows in seconds. I think this is pretty amazing.

In the video you’ll see how I took the look a little further with some lip colours (including one on the cheek), and you’ll also be able to hear Sian talking about what it takes to be a top model booker.

Sian’s finished look was pretty major, no?!
