Day

Perfect for the office or a lunch out with the girls, this simple just-out-of-bed look only takes minutes. The key is to use soft application to achieve a bold result.

To keep the delicate skin around your eyes soft, begin with a creamy eye primer such as Nars' Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base. Follow by layering a mix of taupe and coffee hues along the crease of your eyelids with a round tipped brush before defining with a smudge of soft black eye pencil.

Overdone brows will look out of place during the day so keep them simple yet defined. Use a clean sweep of grooming gel such as Bobbi Brown's Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up which effortlessly fills in brows through a cream-gel formula that maintains a natural looking fullness.

To finish off, apply a coat of volumising mascara like Lancome's Hypnose Doll Lashes for an eye-widening effect, and remember to do those bottom lashes too.

Night

For a more dramatic evening look build on top of your day base with shimmering eyeshadows in night time shades such as Illamasqua's Pure Pigment in Fervent or Zeitgeist. The metallic effect of this high-shine powder will look fantastic blended against the matte shadow used earlier.

To frame your eye shape line with a gel eyeliner rather than a pencil for a long lasting and more defined effect. These often come with a thin-tipped brush for precision application, making sure that your cat-eyed flicks are in perfect place.

For big events, Mila is often seen with glistening but naturally nude lips. So go for something lighter than your regular lippy like Revlon's new collection of Lip Butters which offer a range of shades that are sheer once applied but can be layered for a fuller pout. Their Peach Parfait is, quite literally, perfect for this look.
