Feeling a little lack lustre this Monday morning? Well, we’ve got the hot tip on how to paint yourself into a state of razzle dazzle thanks to make-up master Nicole Thompson and our glowing cover girl, Hirshy.

Luminosity was the name of the game in culture’s current cover shoot… it felt like only minutes would go by before someone was yet again ushering Nicole on set for “more sheen!”.

So if you feel like you could use a little extra sparkle today, you’re in good hands… Nicole takes us through her top tips on how to amp up your radiance levels.

“To achieve this super glowing skin you need the perfect shiny base to start with. Hydrate and add sheen to the skin by massaging MAC Strobe Lotion into the skin all over face, neck and arms.

HOT TIP #1: DON’T COVER THE GLOW! ONLY CONCEAL WHERE NEEDED.

Use MAC Studio Finish Concealer with a small soft fluffy brush and buff onto the skin where you need coverage. Set the skin with MAC Mineralize Natural Powder through the centre of the face only.

Press Strobe Cream into the complexion and blend with the palms of your hands to intensify the highlights on the skin.

For the charcoal, smokey eyes, start by lining the waterline of the eyes with MAC Feline Kohl Pencil then smudge into the lids with a small shadow brush.

Then using a MAC #217 brush blend MAC Smut Shadow all over eyelids and buff up to the brows.

HOT TIP #2: PAT A CLEAR GLOSS OVER THE TOP OF THE EYELIDS FOR A LACQUERED, GLAMOROUS EFFECT!”
