Start with a neutral base all over the eyelid, then pack on blue eyeshadow up to the brows. Create shadow and definition by blending dark blue eyeshadow into the crease and towards the outer corner. Finish the look with electric blue mascara and glossy lips.

Milly: lady in red

Create a smoky eye with a brown khol pencil, blending to soften the edges. Line the eyes and apply lots of mascara. Use two shades of red lipstick to create an ombre lip, placing the darker red at the outer corners of the lips and a more scarlet tone in the centre.

5. Purple reign

Create custom tones of purple by mixing pinks with violet and deeper purples. Apply gems in shades of pink, purple and white to the inner and outer corners to create a highlight effect. Pair this look with a complimentary pink lip.

Naomi: sunset gaze

After applying a neutral base, place purply shadow at the inner and outer portions of the eyes. Apply a bright orange shadow to the centre of the eye, diffusing it with a yellow shade. Draw a line with gold eyeliner through the crease. Keep the rest of the face fairly stripped back for a striking look.
