GET THE LOOK! Grace Chatto from Clean Bandit at The Brits 2014

Grace Chatto (from UK no.1 band Clean Bandit) has naturally fair 'English Rose' skin which I wanted to accentuate.  I wanted to create an overall clean, fresh look with a pop of colour on her lips. 

For skin, I used NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser in Finland. This is a personal fave of Grace's and I can see why. 
For a tinted moisturiser, this product has light-to-good coverage but still leaves skin looking hydrated and radiant. It also has a hint of pink and yellow so it could work on a range of fair tones. For an extra glow I added trusty MAC Strobe Cream as a highlighter and a sweep of Smashbox Blush Rush in Chiffon on the cheeks.

I wanted to accentuate eyes without adding any strong makeup. Smashbox Always Sharp 3D Liner in Sparks helped me along the way! It's a deep khaki shade with a shimmer, great for applying in between the eyelashes and smudging with a similar colour eye shadow over it. I really love this liner and it would be a fool-proof product for a smokey-eye look too.

Orange lips are going to be big for SS14, so I went for MAC lipstick in Morange! A daring colour you might say..but Grace can pull it off against her ashy blonde/grey locks.

Nude and natural nails are back in for SS14 so I used Ciate London in Couture. This is a nude pink and I used 3 coats for an opaque finish. I also really love Ciate's Cookies & Cream and Snow Virgin and the colour really lasts!

H+H body adornment were added to a couple of Grace's nails. BIG fan!!
