Fiercely festive with Marc Jacobs Beauty

With Christmas party season officially in full swing, Jen Keating from the new Marc Jacobs Beauty counter at Harvey Nichols takes us through her six smokey steps to create a festive twist on one of the most coveted looks this winter

1. Prep the eyes with the Beauty Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Eye Primer (£20). Then, using a Highline Glam Glitter Gel eye crayon in shade Glam Jam (£20), line the lid and gently smudge out the colour until the liner is blown out to a soft smoke.

2. Using the Flamboyant palette (£39) from the Leopard Frost Eye-conic collection, gently press the colour You Slay onto the lid and blend out with The Crease brush (£27).

3. Add some festive sparkle to the lid. Using your fingertips, press See-Quins Glam Glitter eyeshadow from the Holiday 2018 collection in colour Copperazzi (£21) all over the centre of the lid.

4. Next, tight-line the eyes (apply eyeliner to the waterline under your upper lash line and lower waterline) using the Highliner Gel Crayon eyeliner in bestselling shade Blaquer (£20) to add some intensity to the eyes.

5. Finish the smokey eye with Jen’s favourite brush, The Smudge (£24). Using colour On the Runway from the Leopard Frost palette, smudge a little shadow into the liner on the lower and upper lash lines.­­

6. Smoke up those lashes and finish the look with the award-winning Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara (£22). Its smudge-proof, long-wearing formula creates volume and length all night long…
