For me, there's one celebrity that's really delivering when it comes to amazing beauty recommendations right now—and that's Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. The model and beauty wiz has been taking to Instagram and her beauty website Rose Inc. regularly to reveal everything from how to do her trademark "basic" bun hairstyle to the products she's packing for her holiday. I've got two words for you, Rosie: Thank you. This week, she's making the most of the British heatwave by sharing her favourite summer night out makeup look and all the products that she uses to create it.
As we'd expect from Rosie, the look is ultra-glowy with plenty of shimmer and bronze to create a sun-kissed look. However, the star of the show has to be her smoky eyes which—in a summer twist—Rosie has coined "sunset eyes." Dreamy.
"I always like to put lip balm on before I've started my makeup so it has a little bit of time to sink in," Rosie explained. "It smells amazing. I'm obsessed with this, and it also looks really beautiful on its own."
To get a light, summery finish, Rosie uses a Beautyblender to apply her foundation: "It's really good to run them under water to get them a little bit damp," said Rosie. "I've found when you're applying foundation, it just smooths it out a little bit more."
To create her shimmering eye look, Rosie applies the gold shade (top right) all over her eyelids and then uses the bronze colour (bottom right) to define her lash line. She finishes the look by applying the pearlescent pink shade (top left) to the inner corners of her eyes and running a little of the deep burgundy colour (bottom right) through the creases.
I love Surratt Beauty palettes. You buy the palette empty and then select the specific shades that you want to fill it with so you have a personalised palette. Rosie built her own to create a "summery, beachy, bronze-y look."
