Make-up artist Lauren Hersheson's step-by-step guide to Leighton's smokey eyes:

1. Leighton has gone for a romantic smokey eye. To achieve this look you need a strong coloured eye shadow with a little shimmer to soften it slightly. I like the NARS eyeshadows such as Night Rider which is a soft plum colour infused with silver glitter. Apply this all over the eye lid up to the crease and with a small eye liner brush apply a little on the lower lash line.

2. Take a black eye pencil and line the upper lash line making sure you get in between every lash.

3. Finish by applying several coats of black mascara- I like Maxfactor’s Masterpiece in Black.

4. Use a soft coral blusher on the cheeks and a matching lipstick such as Armani’s Sheer Blush No. 3 and their lipstick Rouge d’Armani Beige 105.
