Ever wondered what the secret to a Love Island worthy glow is?

Spoiler alert: Carter Beauty by Marissa Carter’s €7.95 Full House Mixed Palette is key.

Celebrity Make-up Artist Sue Brophy’s Top Tips

  • Prep is key. I prepped the skin with Bioderma Radiance Booster mixed with the Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter.
  • I like to keep foundation as light as possible – for this look I used the Bobbi Brown Stick Foundation topped with the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Concealer.
  • Arabella is known for her glow so to highlight I used the €7.95 Full House Mixed Face Palette by Carter Beauty – it’s my go-to highlighter palette.
  • For the eyes I wanted to keep it glam glam with rich browns. I used the Tom Ford Cream Eyeshadow in Spice alongside the Zoeva Palette.
  • For depth I used the Charlotte Tilbury Classic Liner in shade Sophia topped with a double coat of the Extended Play Mascara by Mac.
  • The lashes I used are the biggest bargain of this entire look – €4.95 On The Lash Dramatic Lash from Carter Beauty by Marissa Carter.
  • I’m all about a nude lip. Here I used the Stripdown by MAC Lip Liner topped with Stoned Rose Lipstick and Lip Lustre Gloss in Ibiza Nights by Charlotte Tilbury.
  • Last but by no means least, I misted Arabella’s face with the Sienna Illuminating Facial mist topped with the €7.95 Full House Mixed Face Palette by Carter Beauty to enhance the glow.
