Our fail-safe tips for a glam look
“When I want to take my makeup from 0-100 I always apply false lashes. Applying a black liquid liner beforehand helps the lashes look perfect at the base and it’s crucial to wait for the lash glue to dry until it’s tacky before sticking them down.” - bh’s Amy
"Want to wear glitter eye shadow without making a mess? Firstly, I always use an eye primer when using glitter shadow to prevent as much dropdown as possible. Then, I hold a cotton pad underneath the eye to catch any fallout while pressing down glitter (don't sweep!)" - bh's Erin
"For a glamourous night out I love to give my skin extra gleam with some sort of illuminating product. I usually mix a highlighting liquid like Revlon Endless Glow Highlighter into my foundation to give it extra radiance or brush a powder onto highpoints. Not forgetting my décolletage and shoulders!" - bh's Tracy
"I like a clean liquid liner for day but at night I like a glam rock n roll look. I reach for a black or brown kohl pencil and line my lids and fill my waterline ( the line of skin between your eyelashes and eye). Then, I take a Q-tip and gently smudge and blend the lid line into an easy smoky eye." - bh's Megan
