Liz’s everyday glam make-up tutorial
Before applying any make-up, ensure skin is clean and prep with the Jeju Super Stem Cell Moisture Shot Serum from Beauty Pie. This serum is great for giving skin an extra moisture boost. Use the code LIZLOVES at Beauty Pie for your first month free.
Apply an even base
Spend time applying an even base with your foundation. Having a selection of different foundations will help to match skin tone as it changes throughout the year. Liz loves the coverage that YSL’s Touche Eclat foundation offers. Liz blends this with a little make-up primer – such as Nude Radiance from Burberry – before applying to the face. Work this well into the skin, sweeping over eyelids, up into the hairline and a little down the neck.
To hide any dark circles and eye bags, use a few spots of IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer under each eye. Dot a tiny amount into the inner corner of the undereye and use your ring finger to gently work into the skin.
Sculpt your features
Bring colour to your face with a touch of rouge. Liz loves the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge. Smiling can help to find the apples of your cheeks. Then simply add a few spots of blush and works upwards into the skin for a fresh glow.
Set your base with a translucent setting powder. Use a big brush and pat into skin, smoothing all over and down into your neck.
Bronzer is a great way to add definition. Liz recommends this palette by St Tropez. Use a sturdy powder brush and gently brush into cheeks and under the jawline to create the illusion of shadow.
Define your eyes
Add some eyeshadow to your look – Liz loves the 10 best matte eyeshadow shades from Beauty Pie. Sweep a smoky colour over your eyelid and then a paler shade to brush over the top. This helps to blend any dark lines and add a touch of softness to your look. You can also use eyeshadow to gently define your brows and fill in any gaps.
IT Cosmetic’s Tightline 3-in-1 mascara is ideal for prepping your lashes for mascara. Wiggle into the lash line to emphasis lashes while depositing a little colour. Complete your eyelashes by adding Clinique Lash Power Mascara. Bring an emphasis to your outer lashes to give eyes a feline look.
Adding eyeliner – such as Charlotte Tilbury’s Rock n Kohl – adds definition. Liz loves to frame her eyes by adding a small cat eye flick to the edges of her lid.
Finish with lip gloss
Complete your look with a slick of lip gloss. Liz loves this one from Kjaer Weis in the shade Intimate. The brand offer refills, providing an eco-friendly option for your make-up bag.
Liz’s eyebrow tutorial
Liz shares the simple tricks and tips she uses to make her eye area appear lifted and brows thicker. Find all of the products Liz uses in the links below.

Eylure Dybrow kit
Give your brows an added element of definition with Eylure’s Dybrow kit. Sweep over the hairs of your brows to give them some added colour, taking care to avoid the skin.
Lansinoh HPA purified lanolin
Create a simple skin-friendly barrier and protect your skin from eyebrow dye with medical grade purified lanolin from Lansinoh. Sweep above and below brows.
Get a closer look at your eyebrows and tweak them in fine detail with a magnifying mirror. We love this one from John Lewis.
There’s nothing more frustrating than slippy tweezers. For good grip and precise hair removal, Liz recommends these tweezers from Tweezerman.
Gently brushing eyebrows upwards can help to give the effect of a lifted eye area. This duo brush is ideal for the job.
Filling in any gaps with a brush of eyeshadow helps to make brows appear fuller and thicker. Liz loves the eyeshadow shades from Beauty Pie – enjoy for first month free with the code LIZLOVES – and also the MAC eyeshadow shade, Kid.
MAC Eyebrow Styler Pen

Chanel Vitalumiere foundation
After prepping my face with a good serum, the first thing I do is apply my foundation. I love the Chanel Vitalumiere with SPF15 in a warm, pale shade (such as shade 30 or Beige, but there are other shades available for different skin tones) and I mix this with a cheaper high streeet brand (such as Rimmel Lasting Radiance from Superdrug) to adjust the colour. This is a really effective way to make your foundation match your skin, even as you tan throughout the warmer months.
Clarins Instant Concealer
I’ll then use a creamy concealer below my eyes, especially in the corner of the eye socket by the bridge of the nose. I find Clarins Instant Concealer works really well, lasts all day and doesn’t dry or cake.
Clinique Chubby Stick
I love using cream or stick blushers as they are so easy and versatile – you can slick them over the lips too! The Clinique Chubby Stick is excellent in this pretty shade, and I also love this one from Bobbi Brown.
Laura Mercier translucent face powder
Once foundation, concealer and cream blusher are in place, I top with a light dusting of translucent face powder. I’ve used Laura Mercier for years and consider it to be one of the best, especially when applied with their lovely, luxurious powder brush too.
Once powder has been applied, I go over my cheek bones and temples with a light sweep of face warming illuminator, such as this one from Laura Mercier – which gives a lovely, naturally warm finish.
If I want to deepen my blusher (for the evening perhaps) I’ll apply a ‘pop’ of bright rose blusher for added effect.
Eyeshadow from Mac
Next the eyes, and I’ll use just a single soft brown eyeshadow, in a softly matte finish for the most natural look. I love the Mac colours often use the shade Kid, which I also use to define eyebrows too with a small eyebrow shaping brush.
Charlotte Tilbury liquid kohl pencil
I like to highlight the waterline of my upper eyelids with a soft but long-lasting liquid kohl pencil. I’ve found this from Charlotte Tilbury to be one of the very best – and it’s a great shade of soft minky black that sharpens easily and can easily be used as an eyeshadow too!
Clinique High Impact mascara
Last but not least, this is one of my favourite mascaras for staying in place, never smudging or shedding, yet is very easily removed with warm water at the end of the day.
Lanisoh HPA Purified Lanolin
I like to use this brand of medical grade purified Lanolin to add moisture and instant gloss to my lips. It is also a brilliant way to moisturise dry hands and cuticles.
Liz’s favourite running products
Good shoes make all the difference and should be changed every year or so, as their support and inner padding reduces with wear. Saucony or Adidas provide excellent arch support for novice runners.
I wear the Ultraboost running shoes/trainers – you might have spotted them in some of my videos on social media. They’re not the cheapest, varying in price depending on the exact style (expect to pay around £110), but in my experience, they are the best. They give the most cushioning, are very comfortable to wear and also last the longest.
If you’re looking for something even more stylish but still with exceptional performance, Adidas teamed up with top British designer Stella McCartney to create these beauties – the Ultraboost made from Y-mesh and neoprene.
I also like to wear a simple weighted slipover vest, which increases the load, helping to boost the metabolism and burn fat faster! Running while wearing a weighted vest is such a simple, yet highly effective way to get more out of your exercise time.
