How to get Amy's beauty look:

Step 1: Start by cleansing the skin with Bio Derma cleansing water to ensure the skin is clean and fresh. Moisturise using Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturiser to create a supple base ready for foundation.

Step 2: Apply Shu Uemura priming mousse to ensure the makeup stays fresh and in place all evening.

Step 3: Use Chanel Vitalumiere foundation all over the face using a fluffy brush to buff into the skin. Hide blemishes using Laura Mercier secret camouflage to create a flawless finish.

Step 4: Apply Bobbi Brown cream concealer under the eyes to cover any dark circles and set with Laura Mercier Secret Brightening powder.

Step 5: Brush through the eyebrows and add Elizabeth Arden brow powder over sparse areas to create a full shape.

Step 6: Wash Laura Mercier Alloy cream shadow all over the eyelid, blending at the edges. Use a small amount of Mac carbon eye shadow to the outer corners of the eye and blend outwards. 

Step 7: Use a Mac smoulder eye pencil along the lash line and smudge slightly to create a smoky look.

Step 8: To give fullness, add Eyelures individual lashes and coat with Benefits Bad Gal mascara.
