How to get Michelle's beauty look:

Step 1: Prime the skin with Benefit Cosmetics Professional.

Step 2: Apply Mac Face foundation with a stipple brush buffing the skin in circular motions until perfectly blended.

Step 3: Prime the eyes very lightly with a soft blending brush (Mac paint pot in painterly).

Step 4: Define the brows with a small angled brush using HD Eye & Brows palette.

Step 5: Contour the eye sockets with a natural matt brown (Naked2 Palette in Tense by Urban Decay).

Step 6: Apply a shine to the lid, either cream or powder shadow (Benefit cream shadow in Bikini-Tini).

Step 7: Apply Mac Pro Longwear Concealer under the eyes then blend out very gently with a small soft brush.

Step 8: Curl your natural lashes and apply false lashes if you want a more dramatic look.

Step 9: While lashes are drying, continue with the bronzer (Hoola by Benefit Cosmetics) contouring the cheekbones and adding a golden glow to the skin.

Step 10: Dust the skin lightly around the nose and areas that most become shiny using Bella Pierre mineral powder.

Step 11: Add a splash of colour on the apples of the cheeks using Bella Pierre Mineral blush in Autumn Glow.

Step 12: Once the lash glue is dry, apply your Benefit Cosmetics "They're real" in black mascara to blend natural lashes with false ones.

Step 13: Line the lips with Mac Cosmetics in Spice natural liner, then apply Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Lipgloss.

Step 14: To finish, apply Benefit Cosmetics Bathina body balm to give a subtle glow to arms.

How to get Michelle's hair, as revealed by Carly Guy:

Step 1: Apply Balmain volume mouse and Agadir Argan oil spray to clean damp hair for volume and shine.

Step 2: Blow dry hair using medium brushes from The Bristle Brush Company to lift the root and bend the ends of the hair. Pin curl the bottom half of the hair and put six rollers in the top, leaving them in for about an hour. Remove curlers.

Step 3: Put in a few medium brow Beauty Works clip-in hair extensions for fullness and then backcomb the roots. Spray Balmain session spray.

Step 4: Go over parts of the hair using Yogi hair wand for loose curls. Smooth over the front of the hair and finish it with Balmain silk perfume, giving a shine to the hair.
