Play up your best feature

Draw attention to parts of the face you love most. For Huntington-Whiteley, it's all about the eyes. "I usually love to play up my eyes as my lips are already pretty prominent. I love lots of lashes and a feline looking eye but to be honest, nothing beats a healthy, glowing complexion and a well-groomed brow," she says. Try the Ardell Demi Wispies, £4.35, for a subtle cat-eye effect.

Find your formula

Finding what works for your skin type and tone is key to achieving seamless beauty looks. If you are combination to oily, you'll love water-based, lightweight formulas, and if you are more on the dry side creamier formulas will be your saving grace. Huntington-Whiteley notes, "I am always obsessing over textures, colours, wearability and the sensory glide of product formulations. Lately I’ve been paying much more attention to the ingredients and quality. I avoid pore clogging ingredients and steer more towards cleaner brands."

Concealer is your best friend

A make-up kit essential never to be underestimated, concealers are Huntington-Whiteley's go-to for many reasons. "Being a working mum, I live a very busy life and often struggle with breakouts and getting enough rest which I am sure most mothers can relate to," she says. "Concealing my blemishes and under eye circles is a daily ritual. The Vanish Airbrush Concealer by Hourglass, £32,  is such a beautiful creamy formulation. It covers any problematic areas seamlessly and leaves my skin looking radiant and fresh. 

"I think concealer is one of the most versatile and essential products in anyone’s make-up bag. On my off duty days or when I’m rushed for time I often use the concealer as a foundation by applying it just to the areas I need extra coverage and then blend it out with the concealer brush. The key to using a concealer as foundation is to have really hydrated skin."

It's all about the eyes

The best advice Huntington-Whiteley has ever recieved? Tightlining the eyes. A technique used behind the scenes for years, tightlining will see you taking your eyeliner right into the upper lash line to create the illusion of a dark and dense lash roots.

Done properly, the trick will help to define the eyes without making it look like you've made too much effort. It also helps to create a fuller, wider and more twinkly look. "It freaks me out but really intensifies your lash line," Huntington-Whiteley adds. Try a brown eyeliner like Charlotte Tilbury's Rock 'n' Kohl in Barbarella Brown, £19, for a softer look.
