Hayley Atwell had her skin “double cleansed” before attending the 2013 British Fashion Awards.
The brunette actress dazzled at the annual ceremony in a multi-coloured floral embroidered top and full floral-print skirt from Holly Fulton’s Spring 14 line.
Hayley kept her make-up minimal to avoid clashing against her bright ensemble. Shehla Shaikh, head of LancÃ´me’s Elite Team, was behind the star’s look that night and has revealed how she created the finished appearance.
“I double cleansed with LancÃ´me Galatee Confort, really massaging in the creamy cleanser, then removed cleanser with cotton wool pads to hydrate the skin and leave a dewy finish,” she told fashion.telegraph.co.uk. “[I applied lip balm early on], so when I came to applying lipstick later, balm would have sunk in and lips would be left simply hydrated.”
Next Shehla focused on Hayley’s cheekbones and eyebrows, making sure she gave extra definition to both.
“Hayley was wearing her hair up, so this gave me the opportunity to really structure the face with careful contouring. She has naturally amazing cheekbones, so I used the neutral contour shade from LancÃ´me Blush Subtil palette,” the make-up artist added. “[Her brows are] amazingly strong, so I just groomed them.”
Lastly Shehla added a soft brown eyeshadow and slick of eyeliner. She wanted to make sure this touch complemented the rest of Hayley’s look rather than steal the attention.
“I lined from the middle of the eye to the end, with a slight flick at the end. Then to finish and soften this line, I used the same brown shadow, dry this time, and pulled it out slightly on the very faint flicked liner to lift,” she added. “All parts of the make-up were balanced rather than anything too bold.”
