Space NK AW makeup look

You may remember that back at the beginning of August I was on set and behind the scenes with SpaceNK for the shoot for their AW13 colour campaign.

Well, today the campaign breaks and to celebrate we are giving away one complete set of the entire make up look for the Mega Watt Lip (above) worth nearly £300, created by makeup artist Karen Alder for Space NK. (Details at end of the post.)

Glossy red lips teemed with Studio 54 inspired big hair were a strong look on the A/W 2013 catwalks, and this make up look by Karen is the perfect way to buy into the trend.

You can watch the brilliant online tutorials from both Karen and hair stylist Darren Fowler over on the SpaceNK site, but meanwhile here are Karen’s instructions for creating the make up look: SPACE NK BEHIND THE SCENES AW13 SHOOT

To ensure this high glamour look appears ultra-modern and not overdone, keep the base as sheer as possible using Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser (£33.00) and keep powder to a minimum.

For glowing skin hi-light with Kevyn Aucoin, Celestial Powder in Candlelight (£34.00), then spritz with a misting spray and pat with a foundation brush to give a seamless finish and set your make up.

Groom eyebrows perfectly into shape by brushing them up and out and defining withHourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil (£26.00), to give  structure to your face and lift the eyes.

Then sweep By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Bronze Moon (£27.50) over your lid and lower lash line and blend up and out to just beyond the socket of your eye. Curl lashes and apply several thin layers of Eyeko Black Magic Mascara (£18.00).

Ensure lips look perfect by lining the entire lip with Lipstick Queen Lip Liner in Red (£16.00) and blend with a lip brush before applying Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope in Brat Pack (£35.00), blot and pop on another coat, blot again then add Nars Cosmetics Lip Gloss Triple X (£17.50) to the centre of your lips for shine and to enhance your pout.

To finish brush a sheer wash of blush from the Chantecaille Wild Horses Palette (£75.00) on the apples of your cheeks.


To create the incredible volume for this hairstyle, Hair Stylist Darren Fowler used Oribe Grandiose Volume Mousse (£33.00on damp, towel dried hair.

Then, before rolling the hair up with hot sticks, he spritzed each section of hair with Bumble and Bumble’s Thickening Hairspray (£21.50) for protection.

Then he left the whole top section of hair free from hot sticks and wrapped around the T3 Whirl Styler wand (£115), before pinning into a big top curl for height. When brushed out this created a soft 1940’s waved fringe. Once cool he removed the hot sticks.

Applying a fine mist of Oribe’s Dry Texturising Spray (£38.00) to a flat bristle brush, he then started at the roots, taking large sections, and dragging the brush down the hair shaft relaxing the hair at inch intervals creating soft 1940’s curls with a Studio 54 twist.

I would love the Chantecaille Wild Horses Palette – I adore their products; I have teenage skin (even though I’m 29) in the worst possible way and their Future Skin foundation has been the only thing that doesn’t break me out. I think their ingredients are superb and it’s the kind of thing that I normally buy myself as a special treat so I would be thrilled to be able to try this palette!
