Australian actress and model Rachael Taylor has always been one to wow onlookers with her statement yet elegantly refined beauty looks, and whilst attending the Summer Coda premiere in Melbourne late last year, the down under stunner looked suitably glamorous in her red carpet-worthy makeup.
With her slightly-smoky golden eyes, defined brows and glowing rose cheeks, her natural glamour proved the perfect pared-down partner to her statement sequinned dress. But fear not, this laid-back luxe look is easy to recreate at home – after all, looking good isn’t just for the rich and famous.
A good base is key to achieving Rachael’s glowing skin, and Lancome’s Teint Miracle foundation at House of Fraser is perfect for this look. Its lightweight miracle formula will guarantee to naturally illuminate your face whilst allowing your skin to breathe – simply apply a small amount to the centre of your face and blend outwards for a natural, even coverage.
For dazzling eyes all you need is this handbag-sized pot of Dirty Martini burnt gold eye shadow from Topshop – the gorgeous metallic finish will add an instant dash of eye-popping colour to your little peepers. Smooth the shadow onto your lids, building colour in the contours of your eyes for dramatic effect. Don’t forget to wing it out at the corners to maximise those cat eyes like Rachael.
For the perfect statement brow, Clarins offers the ultimate face-shaping beauty trick with this darkly-toned eyebrow pencil – this little beauty will guarantee to sort out your sunken brows while brushing them into shape with the handy comb.
For radiant glowing cheeks, head over to Debenhams to pick up this cheek and lip tint by Natio – it’s versatile design allows you to smudge a little rosy goodness onto your winter-beaten face. Simply dab a small amount onto the apple of your cheeks and gently ease the colour along your cheekbone for a natural glow – finish with a tiny blob to your lips and blend for a subtle hint of bitten colour.
Time to kick-start your new year beauty regime…
