Make your eye colour pop with this season’s strongest statement: a mesmerising spotlight eye. To replicate Nicole’s warm copper look, use Zoeva’s Caramel Melange eyeshadow palette to blend and smoke your upper eyelid, then apply Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Cream Waterproof Cream Colour in 12 golden copper over your entire lid. Create a glam glitter spotlight by pressing on Make Up For Ever’s Diamond Powder in 4. Complete the look by smoking your lash line with 3INA's The Automatic Eye Pencil in 303. For the perfect brow, use MAC's Big Brow Pencil in Lingering, then brush through with Benefit’s Gimme Brow in 3, from Sephora.

To transform your face into an ultralight beam, start by applying Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector to highlight your cheek bones, brow bones and above your brows, then apply Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Luminous Bronze Light. The trick to applying bronzer is to draw a '3' shape, beginning along the forehead, continuing down your cheeks for a soft contour effect, and then along your jawline at the edge of your chin. Blend MAC’s Mineralise Blush in Warm Soul between the bronzer and highlighter to tie the look together for an effortlessly glowing finish.

Create the illusion of plump lips with Nicole’s subtle ombré matte look. First, define your lip shape using MAC's Lip Pencil in Whirl, and follow with a slightly lighter shade of lipstick on the outer part of the lips – Nicole used Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick in No Angel by Marc Jacobs Beauty. Using your finger, softly dab on a lighter shade, such as Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo in no.6 Mauve Beige, to the middle of your lips and blend softly for a seamless ombré finish.
