That's our Saturday night make-up sorted!

Make-up artist Kate Rose Crean, the mastermind behind this month’s cover shoot with Roz Purcell, talks us through achieving that knockout pout.
First off, work that base.
“I love the hydration and texture that IMAGE skincare gives straight away to skin and their products not only work as incredible skin care products (I use them all myself), but also as a prep tool to really prime the skin for make-up.”
Chanel Perfecter
Kate used Chanel’s Lumiere Foundation, €46
“I applied the Chanel foundation with two brushes. The first was a large foundation brush (MAC #189)which I always use for quick application and the second was a much more dense tool (KEVIN AUCOIN The Foundation Brush) which I used to really push the product into the skin to make her base resemble her own skin as much as possible but with a really polished effect.  I then use the tips of my fingers in around the nose, chin and under-eye area to melt the product slightly with the heat of my skin to smooth out any lines left over from excess product.”
She kept the lips simple using NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl, €6
“I then finished it off with MAC lipstick Girl About Town.”
If you don’t think you can pull of that shade of shocking pink, there are other options.
“If you have fair skin, choose peachy pink shades to neutralise any red undertones in the skin. Something soft and sheer will work really well against your complexion.  Some of my favourites are Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy in Peony, MAC Pink Plaid and Smashbox Be Legendary in Sunset Junction.
Pippa Palette
For those understated eyes, Kate relied on the Pippa Palette.
“The Pippa Palette is literally one of my favourite palettes to use and is a real go to product for me.  I love to use it on its own or to finish off an eye look with it’s beautiful blending colours.  For Roz, because I wanted to keep the eye look really simple and matte, I used LILI / TOBI / OLLIE / SUSU and gently built them up with lots of soft blending!”
