    Step 1

    Sweep a light wash of Rimmel Glam’Eyes Mono Eye Shadow in Smoky Quartz over the entire lid. Take a little colour underneath the lower lash line. “An angled blending brush makes it really easy to apply shadow underneath the eye,” says Sonia.

    “Lashes need to really stand out, so I’ve applied Rimmel London Volume Flash mascara,” says Sonia. “Frame the eyes by filling in the brows - groomed brows always give a polished look to the face.”

    For a precise pout you need a lip liner, such as Rimmel London 1000 Kisses Lasting Finish in Red Dynamite. “If you cup your hands around your mouth and look into a mirror, you will instantly see any mistakes,” says Sonia.
