The Fashion Fruit Beauty How-To

Styling it up for the Harrods Digital Style Summit, Italian blogger Veronica Ferraro of The Fashion Fruit shares her favourite beauty look: "Defined, crisp liner really accentuates and widens the eyes – even without mascara. And then matching a feline eye with a red lip is a must. I always carry around a red lipstick in my purse for an instant glamorous update."

On-set beauty duo, Bobbi Brown make-up artist Priti and Aveda Blowdry Specialist Joon Miller share how they created Veronica’s classic look.

The Fashion Fruit Beauty How-To
  1. 1

    Step 1

    For a flawless base apply BB Cream SPF 35 to the face before touching up with Foundation Stick on the areas that need more coverage. To give skin a smooth, polished appearance, set with the Sheer Finish Pressed Powder using a Powder Brush. Then, use Bronzing Powder to warm the face and apply a light dusting of the Shimmer Brick to highlight the cheek.

    For stand-out lips like Veronica’s, apply the classic Red Lip Color using the Retractable Lip Brush. Perfect the application with Red Lip Liner.

    For the smoky eye, apply a base eye shadow such as Bone Eye Shadow from the lash line to the brow bone. Next, sweep a complimentary eye shadow colour in a medium tone on the lower lid up to the crease, blending as you go. Line eyes with the Black Ink Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner from the outermost corner of the eye to the inner. Finish with two to three coats of Extreme Party Mascara, rolling the wand as you go from roots to tips.

    For the hair, we wanted to give Veronica voluminous bouncy curls without it looking too 'done'. She has naturally fine hair so I used Aveda Pure Abundance Style Prep - this boosts hair without weighing it down giving a longer-lasting style. I sectioned the hair and blow-dried using a large round brush. With tension, wrap the hair around the brush and dry in an upwards motion, this will achieve the desired curl and volume.

Final Result

Glamorous side-swept waves really show off the rich tones in Veronica's auburn-lit hair, while the feline flicked ink-lined eyes work perfectly with the deep red lip to give a classic chic look.
