Vixen: How To Get The Look

Step 1: Base & Smokey Eyes

Slay Belles Get The Look Vixen Step 1 Eyes and Base

The first step is getting the base right. We LOVE Illamasqua’s Skin Base Foundation for a wide variety of shades and a long-wearing, natural-looking finish. If you want a little extra coverage, this foundation is perfect too as it’s formula is really buildable and conceals imperfections whilst smoothing your complexion.  Apply your foundation using the Pixi Full Cover Foundation Brush.

Start smoking it up by lining your upper and lower waterline using the Maybelline Expression Kajal Eyeliner in Black. Bring down into the lash line and blend. For your eyeshadow, mascara and brow needs, the Illamasqua Pro Made Easy Eye Set in Thrive is a MUST. Featuring Illamasqua’s Vital Eyeshadow Palette – the perfect combination of smokey brown shades, Masquara Gain, and Brow Build in ‘Thrive’, your eyes are sure to be smouldering in no time!

Step 2: The Lips


No Vixen can go without a sleek, bold, powerful red lip. MDMflow’s Semi Matte Lipstick in Supreme is our go to red lip for this look. If you want a little extra precision, apply using the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Precision Lip Brush.

Step 3: The Hair

The finishing touch – glam waves. Add large, loose waves using the Trevor Sorbie Keratin and Argan Wand, wapping hair around the wand away from the face. Fix everything into place using the L’Oreal Paris Studio/Pro Boost It Spray for added volume!
