The Oscars with Suki Waterhouse, Burberry and Mary Wiles

Now this is something a little different for The-Frugality, but an opportunity that couldn't be missed...

Last night, my friend and fabulous make-up artist Mary Wiles (see her Frugal Beauty picks here) worked her make-up magic on the beautiful Suki Waterhouse at The Oscars, and has kindly offered to tell The-Frugality readers how she achieved the look!

Mary's kit
Suki famously missed the red carpet but her deep v red dress and make-up still wowed crowds during the ceremony and at the Vanity Fair after-party.

"I wanted to create a look that was graphic, modern and effortlessly elegant to complement the simple lines of her Burberry dress" says Mary. Here are the products she used:

Fresh glow foundation in Porcelain No 11 - "creating a base which would last all night". This oil-free base is really long-wearing but still delivers a glow to the skin.

Sheer concealer in Soft Beige No 2 - dotted under the eyes and patted in to melt into the skin.

Nude radiance Fresh Glow 01 - added to highlight temples and cheekbones.

Peony Blush 04 - used on the apple of the cheeks and blended upwards and out.


Rosewood 202 - nudey pink silk eyeshadow blended outwards as a base.

Effortless Liquid Liner in Jet Black 01 - used through the top lashes and extended up and outwards to enhance the cat eye.

Effortless kohl liner in Pale grape - blended with the liquid liner at the outer corners to create a soft look liner.

Eye colour in Dusty Mauve 203 - blended into the outer socket.

Bold Lash mascara in Ebony 01 - two coats applied onto curled lashes top and bottom.

Efortless eyebrow definer in Sepia 02 - brows were filled in with short brush strokes to define shape and fill in gaps.

Burberry Kisses Tulip Pink No 9 (available from March). "Suki adored the's the same tone as her natural lip colour, so just adds a little more definition. It's one of my 'go to' natural pinks".

Lip definer Rosewood 07 - filled in the outer corners to add a little more definition where the lips can fade.

What did you think of Suki's look? I for one am definitely going to buy the lipstick when it launches....
