Last week I visited the BAFTA TV style suite and the Pelham Hotel, which was hosted by the British Academy Television Awards official beauty partner MAC. The big event will take place on the 22nd of May where the MAC team will be working tirelessly on celebrities, socialites, and guests of honour. Inside of this sneaky peek suite, I got my makeup done by senior makeup artist Debbie Finnegan who created a look designed specifically to stay photo ready throughout the night.
Debbie prepped my skin with primer, foundation, setting powder, and mist, which she described as a cocktail of vitamins, minerals, and water. Below are a few key tips to ensure that your makeup has longevity and most importantly, stays looking fresh.
- Use lots of mascara for extra lift. It shows up on screen and keeps your eyes looking wide and bright.
- Apply a blush or powder one shade darker than your skin tone to the back area of the hallows of your cheeks for a sculpting effect that looks amazing on camera.
- A moisturising concealer is imperative to keep eyes looking refreshed. Also, bring one with you to the event so that you can keep touching up any uneven skintone or blemishes.
- Lastly, keep a mini-touch-up kit with you that includes blotting powder, lipstick, and gloss.
