Verve brings to your dressing room, acclaimed make-up maestro Graham Johnston, the talent behind the transformation of ordinary faces into Hollywood divas. He takes us through a colourful journey of his art by letting us in on four top movie star looks. The Working Executive, The Style Princess, The Sexy Siren and The Drama Queen...all of which he has successfully achieved on glam goddesses like Nicole Kidman, Renee Zellweger, Liv Tyler, Demi Moore and Natalie Imbruglia, to name a few. With simple tips and a casual sweep of the right brush, he shows us how to emulate these looks to fit into our everyday routine.

THE DRAMA QUEEN
INSPIRATION:

CATHERINE ZETA JONES
IN

AMERICA'S SWEETHEARTS

Balloon sleeve kurta with frill detail by Manish Arora, at The Courtyard; bead necklace, at The Oak Tree.
Heavy foundation for perfect radiating complexion which lasts all night. Heavy dramatic kohl pencil with lots of smoky eyeshadow and black mascara. Dab on a deep dark red lipstick and finish it with a lot of gloss. Use the blush with strokes that sculpt and contour your face.

Tip: It's also a great option to use gloss on your cheeks to add to your shining glory.
