Make sure the skin is freshly washed and cleaned.

Step 2

Apply moisturiser to skin before using a concealer. Once the concealer has been applied, add the foundation evenly to the skin, add blush to the cheeks.

Step 3

Using black eyeliner, thinly mark around the outside of the eye, this will give the eyes the illusion of more depth.

Step 4

Using an eye shadow brush apply green eye shadow to the eyelid stopping after the first crease.
Bring the eye shadow out to the corner of the eye, extending the green eye shadow 1cm past the corner of the eye.

Step 5

The medium blue eye shadow is applied directly on top of the green using a smaller eye shadow applicator. Continue to extend beyond the corner of the eye. You are starting to build up your contemporary eye shadow design.

Step 6

Layer the violet eye shadow directly on top of the medium blue eye shadow, continue to build up your design past the corner of the eye into a point.

Step 7

Once you have achieved your glazed layering of eye shadows, apply the liquid eyeliner from the corner of the eyes flowing to the end of the built up eye shadow.

Step 8

Add false eye lashes to the base of the eyelid, wait until the glue dries before you apply your mascara.

Step 9:

Add your diamonds onto the face; you can arrange the pattern to form a preferred pattern or add a few to accentuate the make-up design.


Apply a shiny lip gloss to the lips; the lip gloss completes the Contemporary Make-up design
