Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Candice Swanepoel at Mario Testino's 1930's Party

From the Front Lines – Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Candice Swanepoel at Mario Testino’s 1930’s Party

London makeup artist Florrie White was looking after the two Victoria’s Secret angels last week, and gave them both bombshell screen siren red pouts, with the help of Burberry Beauty. On Rosie, she used Burberry Lip Definer in Brick Red no 5, and Rosy Red lipstick no. 5. Candice got a mixture of Burberry lipsticks in Union Red no 17, and Hibiscus no 20. Talk about a pair of 1930’s femme fatales!

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Burberry

New Beauty Breakdown: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley at the Burberry Show, LFW Spring Summer 2012

Makeup by Florrie White

We all know that Rosie H-W is, quite frankly, a goddess. Whiplash hair, feline eyes, that incredible Victoria’s Secret body. She’s enough to make grown men cry and make Angelina Jolie look like, well a bit of a moose. (Sorry Angelina).

When I saw pictures of her at the Burberry show last week in London, and at Mario Testino’s 1930’s party that night (but more on that later), I had to find out what her makeup look was. So I emailed her makeup artist, Florrie White, for the inside scoop.

As Rosie is the face of Burberry Florrie was able to choose whatever she wanted from the gorgeous new Burberry makeup line (an MM fave, if you hadn’t already gathered), to perfect that already pretty damn near perfect face. Here’s what Florrie used:

Skincare

  • Decleor Harmonie Calm and Neroli Oil

Foundation

  • Burberry Sheer Foundation in 04/05

Concealer

  • Burberry Sheer Concealer no 02

Cheeks

  • Burberry Warm Glow

Eyes

  • Burberry Midnight Brown eye pencil
  • Burberry Sheer Eyeshadows in Midnight Brown and Chestnut
  • Burberry Effortless Mascara in Black

Lips

  • Burberry Lip Definer in Nude Beige 01
  • Burberry Lip Mist in 01
