Follow the step by step guide (along with the video) to recreate the look
Step 1: Start by concealing your lips with a concealer that matches your skin tone. This will be the base for the mouth that will later be drawn with eyeliner.
Step 2: Set the concealer with a translucent loose powder. Repeat this step once more to ensure that all colour on your lips is stripped.
Step 3: To add definition to the face, apply a bronze/ ash tone contour to chisel out your cheekbones using a dense contour brush. After this brush, blend with a fluffy powder brush to get rid on any harsh lines.
Step 4: Bake above the contour, using a translucent loose setting powder and a beauty blender.
Step 5: Moving back to the mouth, use a black kohl liner and draw a slightly curved line out in line with the end of your eyebrow.
Step 6: With your mouth closed, draw straight lines vertically along your lips using a liquid liner. This will dry faster and ensure that the liner does not smudge.
Step 7: Use the Seventeen Mega Eye Palette, or any palette of your choice. Take both black and dark grey eyeshadow, smudge the outer edges of the mouth and lines from the corner of the mouth.
Step 8: Using a nude eyeshadow shade and a fluffy eyeshadow brush, apply across the lid as a base.
Step 9: Using the same black kohl liner, apply all over the lid gently and smudge to create more pigment and blend with a black eyeshadow on top.
Step 12: Clean up any streaks using concealer underneath the eye and on the outer corner to create a sharper line.
Step 13: After concealing, apply the same shadows along the lower lash line to deepen the look.
