I was excited at the idea of being part of the team for the Julien Macdonald show, first of all because he's one of the most established british desgner, I like his collections and and third...Charlotte Tillbury was the key MUA..I like her style, I get inspired..
I'm gonna show the pictures straight away:

What I like about this look is the fact that it's fairly natural yet sexy.
It's not about colours on the eyes or on the lips, it's about playing with the shimmers, highlighting and shading and making the skin loooking glowy and healthy.
To start with we used MyFace base, a lightweight foundation part of Charlotte's new make-up range Myface Cosmetics.
We then used the blusher in Medium Dark under the cheekbones and a touch on the apple of the cheeks for a sunkissed effect.
On the eyes: with a cream texture colour in warmish brown we defined the socket of the eyes  and the bottom of teh eyelid, gently, with a soft stroke, well blended, no harsh lines.
Then with a loose white shimmery powder we filled in the eyelids. With the same powder we dotted the inside corner of the eyes, applied along the bridge on the nose, the bow of the lips, little touch on lips too and finally on the cheekbones.
The only strong (ish) part of the make up consisted on filling in the eyebrows making them quite thick, always soft and natural though,  Brooke Shields' style.

As you can see  the shimmer has created an amazing effect under the lighting, the girls were catwalking in a beautiful place reminding us of  an italian piazza, looking modern, sexy and gorgeous.
