Masterclass Mondays: Femme Fatale Makeup For Day

October 10, 2011

International makeup artist April Greaves shows us how to create the ultimate femme fatale makeup look for day, inspired by Catherine Deneuve in Belle de Jour, using Bloom Cosmetic’s latest Belle de Jour colour collection.


Moisturiser Add 2 drops of Bloom Organics Rose Hip Oil to Bloom Organics Hydrating Facial Moisturiser

Base Mineral Plus Sheer Mineral Tint

Foundation Mineral Plus Liquid Foundation

Concealer Concealer in Flawless for pink skin tone or Concealer in Undercover for gold skin tone

NEW Cream Blush Duo – Use the Blush Base Liquid Eye Shadow in Sun + Eye Shadow in Bone over the top smoothed onto the entire eye socket up to the brow bone


Contour NEW Eyebrow Duo – use the Pencil end

Definer NEW Eye Crayon in Taupe

Highlight NEW Cream Blush Duo – use the Illuminiser applied to inner corner of eye and to the brow bone

Mascara Curl the lashes well before applying mascara to accentuate the 1960s influence, then top with Full & Flirty Mascara in Black

Brows NEW Eyebrow Duo – use the Pencil to define the brow and the Gel to brush into shape


Colour For a softer day look press NEW Cream Blush Duo (Blush) with finger-tip and dab onto lip to create a lip stain.

Definer NEW Lip Duo in Day & Night – use the Lip Gloss for a sheer hint of colour

Gloss NEW Super Glossy Lips – use this alone if you prefer a high-shine, colourless look
