She’s got a new hit album, Melody, and a gorgeous new look – and now you can steal Sharleen Spiteri’s sexy sixties style! 17 Creative Director Sam Bryant, who created this hot new look for Sharleen, explains how.


Gorgeous Feline Eyes:

  1. Using a large soft eyeshadow brush and 17 Trio Eyeshadow in In The Nude, apply a wash of the palest shade of shadow over the entire eye lid and brow bone. Then, using a smaller brush, sweep the taupe shade into the socket, extending the colour out towards the end of your brow. Use the darkest brown to add more depth in the outer corner of your sockets, then blend really well using a larger, clean eyeshadow brush, so that the effect is soft and smooth.


  2. Next, apply a black liquid liner or pen, like 17 Soft Liner Pen, in a thick tapered line to add real drama. If you don’t feel confidant doing this in one dramatic sweep, from the inner corner out, try mapping the shape you want out first with an eye pencil.  As liquid liner can look hard and is tricky to get looking super-perfect, try applying black kohl like 17 Perfect Definition Eyeliner in Onyx over the top of your liquid liner when dry, then blend with a fine brush or cotton bud to soften and correct your liquid line.


  3. Apply a layer of white kohl on the inner rim of your eye then add several heavy layers of 17 Lash Illusion Mascara in Midnight Black to your top and bottom lashes, so that they appear long and thick but not clumpy. If your lashes are a bit sparse, add in some individual ones to give them a boost.

Tawny Cheeks:

Sweep a soft tawny blush like 17 Blush Powder in Brickie, onto cheeks, applying the colour under and onto the cheek bone, and blend. Always remember the best way to create a professional look is to gently build the colour up, one layer at a time, blending it up and out toward your ears.


Luscious Sixties Lips:

  1. Sharleen’s mouth is naturally super-sexy so this amazing pout required very little effort. To make your lips appear fuller, choose a fleshy/nude lip pencil like 17 Perfect Pout liner in Buff and apply it to the outer edge of your lips. Make sure the pencil is soft and rounded, rather than sharp, and keep the pencil on the outside edge of your natural lip line but still on it. Gently soften line with a cotton bud.


  2. Smooth on a layer of matching fleshy/nude lipstick. Find a colour that’s slightly paler than your natural colour, but not too pale and chalky. Try 17 Lasting Lip Fix in Blondie.


  3. Finally, to create a 3-D pout, dab a touch of pale gloss in the centre of your lips to highlight and give an illusion of fullness. Try combining 17 Lasting Lip Fix in Blondie and 17 Lip Glaze in Rising Star to give you this luscious effect.
