WIN: Max Factor Helps You Get The ‘Winning Look’ From ‘The Face’

Max Factor have been the makeup of makeup artists for decades, so it’s no surprise that their partnership with television show ‘The Face’ saw them sign the winner to feature in their Christmas campaign. Who better to bring their cosmetics to life than Emma, seen here in a striking image that makes me feel all sparkly inside. Caroline Barnes, Max Factor make-up artist and deciding judge in the final, created the look using a range of cosmetics that are available in a limited edition set this December. Exclusively available in Boots, you can pick up the pack bursting with goodies absolutely FREE when you spend £15.00 or more on Max Factor cosmetics. Each pack contains: False Lash Effect Mascara (£10.99,)
Lipfinity in Essential Natural (£10.99) and Glossfinity Nail Polish in Cobalt Blue (£5.99,) as well as a £3.00 voucher to redeem against your next Whipped Creme Foundation purchase. That’s three full sized products worth over a
whopping £25.00, absolutely FREE for you! Want to know how to get the look and get your hands on one of the FIVE sets I have to give away?

Celebrate Emma’s winning moment by recreating her look at home with this step-by-step guide. Max Factor make-up artist Caroline Barnes tells us how to achieve it. “This makeup is a modern take on a timeless iconic beauty look. It looks beautiful and contemporary when you are dressed and ready to party.” It’s super simple and would make the perfect New Year’s Eve party look…

Step 1. Apply Wild Shadow Pots in Pale Pebble, sweeping it over the entire eye lid. Then take and Wild Shadow Pots in Burnt Bark and blend into the eye-socket to create definition. Smudge into the outer corners of your eye, as well as underneath to create a very soft, smokey eye.

Step 2. Next, use Max Factor Xpert Liner in Black and dot the liner with the tip of the wand at the base of your lashes. This gives the effect of thick defined lashes without having a heavy line.

Step 3. The key to this look is lashings of mascara – apply False Lash Effect Mascara to top and bottom lashes. Apply two coats before the first one dries.

Step 4. Emphasise your cheekbones and give your face a delicate contour by applying Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in Soft Murano. Place on top of your cheekbones and sweep towards your hairline. For a softer feel, use Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in Soft Pink.

Step 5. Lastly enhance and define your brows with Max Factor Eyebrow Pencil in the shade Hazel.

Step 6. Apply Lipfinity in Glazed across the lips – start from the cupids bow and work outwards to create a defined shape.

Step 7. Finish the look with a beautiful rich blue on nails – Glossfinity Nail Polish in Cobalt Blue.

In celebration of Emma’s success story, Max Factor’s partnership with ‘The Face’ and just because it’s Christmas, I’ve got FIVE of these limited edition packs worth over £25.00 to give away.
