Model Makeup Tutorial: Daytime Chic for the Audi Polo

A Model Recommends A quick and easy little makeup tutorial video here; it’s what I did for the day I went to the polo. This is definitely the LAST polo post! Promise.

As usual, the By Terry base is just flawless and glowy, and the Givenchy Mono Shadow paired with the Dior 3 Couleurs Smoky gives a nice, muted smoky eye. New things to look out for include the Givenchy Mascara, which is brill, and the Shiseido Concealer Pencil. I’ve had that for ages but it’s truly nifty for pinpointing individual spots and airbrushing them out!

For links to individual products (to see prices, shades and more information) have a look below the video pane. It should all be there!

    You do suit your hair in a quiff-maybe you should do a tutorial on the similar and amazing hair from Dsquared AW12!!

      Thanks! It’s just trying to get the quiff to stay with no roller inside! x

        OK, what language are you speaking? What is a “Quiff”? I’m, let’s say, over 45 (Ha! she says!).

    Do you line underneath the eye and on the top lashline please? I can’t quite see (probably a blonde moment!) but it looks so pretty x

    Hi Ruth! What number Givenchy eyeshadow prisme was that?

      Ah Ruth, pretty please? I bought #8 Fancy Coffee but I think it’s too dark… I’m after a soft smoky eye. I have a feeling the one you used was modish brown based on website swatches? Sorry to hound you, I just love this look! The 3 couleur smokkyy, ha ha! Love your personality! Merci!!
