Using Sable Brush 19b, apply Auto Pilot Pre-foundation Primer to the face. Blend Auto Pilot Eye Primer Eye Hydrating Cream to the under eye area. Prep lips with Auto Pilot Lip Service. Curl eye lashes with the Lash Curler. Apply your first coat of Long Black Mascara in Double Black.


Using the same brush that primer has been applied with, blend China Doll Foundation across the ‘feature focus’ area of the face.

Conceal dark circles with the Pro Palette Concealer. Either mix Deep Sand and Light Amber, or layer the shades on the under eye area to conceal darkness/discoloration.

Mix the appropriate shades form the Pro Palette Concealer to match the skin tone and apply to blemishes. Be sure to warm the concealer into the skin with your finger tip or a sponge.

Apply a touch of concealer across the entire eye lid from the lash line to the brow bone and set with a touch of Camera Finish, creating a base for your eye shadow.

Lightly set the foundation across the ‘feature focus’ area of the face with Camera Finish.


Apply China Doll in Equinox along the upper lash line. Pat Tan from Prismatic Eye Shadow Quad #4 over the mobile lid up to the socket line, from the inner corner to the outer corner.

Sweep Mosaic Bronzing through the socket of the eye using Sable Brush 16b. This will blend the colour through the socket and graduate the colour to ensure no muddy hues.

Highlight the brow bone and inner corner of the eye with the Luminous Nude eye shadow from Prismatic Eye Shadow Quad #13.

Line the inner rim of the lower lash line with Eye Pencil in Brown, making sure to blend product between the lower lashes. Blend Mocha Brown from Prismatic Eye Shadow Quad #4 along the lower lash line, making sure it blends with the Brown Pencil. Apply your second coat of Long Black Mascara in Double Black.


Comb the brows with Mascara Wand 2m. Define with appropriate Eye/brow Pencil or Colour Disc.


Sweep Mosaic Bronzing Powder over the apples of the cheeks. Softly add Mosaic Bronzing to the temples. Add a soft dusting of Mosaic Gleamer to the top of the cheekbones to highlight.


Coat Lips with Luminous Lip in Hot Toffee.
