Sultry Halle Berry has an effortlessly sexy and elegant look. See how you can replicate it with some clever makeup tricks.
Halle is born with some very good genes and she knows how to make the most of what she has! With those big brown eyes, she can afford to wear a dark shadow that gives her the sultry look she's known for...
Prepare the base using a good, dewy foundation to reflect light and give you that fresh, rested look. Beauty brand Iman does some fabulous foundations for dark skin. Iman Luxury Radiance Liquid Makeup in Earth - £23.95
Finish the base with a light veil of powder. If your skin tone is similar to Halle Berry's try Iman Semi Loose Powder in Sand – £22.95
Halle has big eyes, meaning she can wear dark eyeshadow to define them and make them look cat-like. Start with applying a medium brown shadow across the eyelid, with a light sweep of colour also applied on the up to the brow bone. With a thin slanted brush, apply a tiny bit of eyeshadow along the lower lash line too. Try Inika Eyeshadow in Coco Motion - £ 11.75
Define your eyes with a black eyeshadow. Only use a tiny bit and apply it along the upper lash line and on the outer corner of your eyes. Use a thin slanted brush for precision. Blend well with the previously applied brown shadow. The black eyeshadow will give your eyes intensity, definition and will accentuate their colour. Inika Eyeshadow in Thunder - £11.75
Draw a thin line of black eyeliner to the bottom lash line. You can do so to the upper one for extra intensity. Iman Perfect Eye Pencil in Jet Black - £11.95
Apply two to three coats of jet black mascara to the upper lashes and a thin coat to the lower. Iman Mascara £14.95
With this look the focus is all on the eyes, so keep the lips natural. To create a lush, full effect, after moisturising and blotting excess lip balm, apply a nude pink lipstick with a sheen or gloss finish. DuWop Private Nude Lipstick - £19
