Singer-songwriter Jessica Mauboy now has an exciting role as beauty muse. The newly appointed ambassador for L’Oréal Paris inspires with four stunning makeup looks to take you from day to night.
Tone On Tone
Pretty, pink tones on lips, eyelids and cheeks give this look its soft and whimsical feel. The key to making it work is finding the right shade of pink – and plenty of blending so the colour melds seamlessly into skin. A warm peachy tone suits Jessica’s complexion, but find your shade by working out your own undertones.
Get The Look
Warm peachy shades complement most skin tones so look for lipstick and blush with a warm base. Don’t have pink eyeshadow? No matter. Doubling up your blush as an eyeshadow ensures a tonal, super-flattering finish.

L’ORÉAL PARIS Color Riche Satin Lipstick in 378 Velvet Rose, $21.95; chemistwarehouse.com.au
Bold and dramatic, this striking look is ideal for after-hours. For the perfect wing, start your eyeliner at the outer third of the eye and drag the ink past the outer lashes before creating a fine V and following up with a few coats of black mascara. To keep the lip line sharp and lips looking full, colour them with a lip liner the same shade as your lipstick, sightly overdrawing the Cupid’s bow and bottom lip but keeping the corners tight.

If you don’t own a red lipstick, now is the time to invest in this beauty classic. An orange base suits Jessica’s skin tone beautifully, but if you have a pale complexion, blue-based reds work best.

Glowing, healthy skin is the ultimate makeup goal. Sheeny bronzer on eyelids and cheekbones give Jessica’s skin a velvety finish, while a taupe tone on the lips adds a sophisticated pop of subtle colour. The freshness of this look comes from simply brushed-up brows and a mere hint of mascara.
Get The Look
Keep your foundation to a minimum and let your natural skin shine through. Then just add a hint of bronzer and some bronzy highlight to give skin that lit-from-within glow.

The drama of this look makes it on-point for an evening out. Emulate Jessica’s look with a velvety matte foundation to keep skin pristine all night long, then blend smoky taupes and browns on the eyelids, concentrating colour on the lash line and blending towards the crease. A matte lip in a dusty rose shade gives this look a sensual edge.

Deep burgundy shades, bronzes and just a hint of highlight make this after-dark look sophisticated and easy to wear. Complete the look with a nourishing satin finish lipstick in a rosy nude shade.
