So who's makeup shall I show you how to do? Well, keeping it in the family I am going to tell you how to get Cate Blanchett's look, it's pretty simple stuff, just the way I like it.
Prepare your face with SLA Perfection Concealer, concealing under the eyes, around the nose and lips, and anywhere that is a little blotchy. I don't mean cover your whole face with concealer, just create a clean canvas, Cate's flawless look all comes down to well applied foundation.
Then choose a foundation that matches perfectly with your decolletage. This is really important, as you can see, the continuity of colour from her face to her chest is perfect, and so often the makeup looks like a mask because the face and chest are a different colour. If you are Cate's colouring then you are definitely going to be using Ali Hamytlon's Darling Dual Finish foundation, first with a very slightly damp Beauty Pod sponge, then sealed over the top with a mop brush.
Then shape your brows with Ali's Delux Liner brush and a little bit of Yass eyeshadow, don't be too skimpy as we are going for a little extra in the brow department, and remember that the highest point of your brow should be two thirds of the way along your eye for that classic arch.
On the lid area we will start with AHC Eliza all over the lids right up to the brows as a base, then using Lillipili as the contour all over lid area, up into the socket line and under the eye. Then create a little bit of depth and warmth with a combination of Yass and Simpson over the lid area to the outer corner and just a tiny little bit underneath... not much as you can see there is not much makeup under the eye, this creates lift.
Now for the eyeliner, lots of eyeliner. Start with Ali's Black Eye Pencil thicker on the outer corner getting thinner and thinner as you move toward the nose, then smudge it gently with a cotton bud. Seal that pencil with a delux liner brush and some Bulla. Then if you have a steady hand and want to really knock that black liner out of the park, you can go over the line again with a thin line of Ali's liquid liner in Midnight, only a thin line though, this is not a thick Katy Perry style black line.
Then curl those lashes! After they are curled to perfection apply the first coat of mascara, wait till it's dry and then apply a second coat to the base of the lashes... if you want to apply a third then that's okay, just careful of the clumps.
On your cheeks I would use a little bit of Sydney blush, starting at the apple and spreading back in circular motions, then apply a little Otto as a highlighter along the tops of your cheek bones.
Line your lips with Sweet lip pencil and then colour the whole lip in, then apply a tiny smear of Thora for a sheen of shine.
And voilà! You are ready to accessorise with a pair of $5000 ear rings and head out the door!
