BRONZER - Create a warm complexion while reducing the appearance of pores & getting photo ready with MoroccanTan Bronzer.
EYESHADOW - Meghan's beautiful skin is complimented by her elegant smokey-eye. For those with more fair skin, go slightly lighter on the shades you choose to prevent overpowering your look. Start with a base colour that matches your skin and build the depth of your shadow with Runway Room Loose Eyeshadow Dust.
LASHES - Working with a darker smokey-eye means you can also go a bit heavier on the lashes. Ardell Magnetic Double-Demi Wispies are an eye-opening set of strip lashes, perfect to complete this look.
BROWS - Meghan's sleek brows create a dramatic frame for her face. Ardell Brow Building Fiber Gel comes in three shades, to suit any hair colour.
LIPSTICK - With a dark eye colour and golden glow, you might want to go a bit lighter on the lip colour. Opt for a nude shade that suits your complexion such as Runway Room Lipstick in Librarian.
