We were lucky enough to work with the wonderful Kiekie Stanners, Senior Makeup Artist at M.A.C Cosmetics, on our RUBY La Collezione, Pre-Fall 17 campaign shoot.

La Collezione's rich and sensual aesthetic was offset by a bronzed and glowing beauty look, fit for an Italian princess.

Kiekie shares with us a step-by-step guide to creating our La Collezione beauty look at home:



1) Prep the skin with Peachlite Strobe Cream before applying foundation to give a peach-filtered radiance to the skin

2) Even out skin tone by applying Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation, and blending with a #170 Rounded Slant Brush

3) Sun-kiss the skin by brushing Bronze Cream Colour Base over the cheeks and on the temples with a #159 Duo Fibre Brush for an Italian-tan effect

4) Press Keep It Loose Casual Colour into the apples of the cheeks for a creamy peach flush

5) Highlight the high areas of the face with Improper Copper Cream Colour Base – on the cheekbones, over the bridge of the nose, and on the cupids bow


6) Create perfect 90’s full brows, by filling with Brunette Brow Duo shadows and a #212 Flat Definer Brush then setting in place with Bold Brunette Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set

7) Highlight eyes with a wash of Bamboom Paint Tube over the eye lid, with Melon Pigment pressed over the top.

8) Contour the outer corners of the eyes with a selection of warm browns from the Eye Shadow x 15: Warm Neutral palette and a #217 Blending Brush.

9) Sweep Instacurl Mascara through lashes to finish


10 ) Apply Shy Girl Lipstick for a pastel-peach lip


11) Use Peachlite Strobe Cream over the legs and shoulders for a bronzed glow that softly shimmers in natural light
