RUBY REVEALS | COQUETTE BEAUTY

Playful and flirtatious, the coquette aesthetic was originally a 17th Century character defined by flirtation and frivolity. Hyper-feminine, the trend for bows and blush in soft romantic pinks, rosy hued lips and soft fluttering lashes has been growing over the last 12 months.

Youthful radiance
Skin appears like it is naturally filtered, hydrated with light coverage with a satin finish. Apply base products lightly, strategically camouflaging blemishes, rather than applying a full face of foundation. Allow your moisturiser to settle, and then using a small, precise brush to apply concealer only in the areas needed. 

Flushed cheeks 
Coy and flirtatious, a flush to the cheeks indicates not only health but muliebrity. Apply a pink toned cream blush to the apples of your cheeks for a doll like youthful appearance, sweeping  upwards and outwards to create lift. The centrepiece of coquette makeup, build up for a statement flush.

Rosy lips
The goal is to create a subtle 'waiting to be kissed' lip look. Keep the tones pink or soft red and use a fluffy tapered brush blur the edges for a soft look, before finishing with a clear gloss.

Doll eyes with fluttery eyelashes
Widen up the eyes with defined, flirty lashes. The micro spiral brush of the Mascara & Brow Duo is great for picking up each individual lash from the root to the tip, lengthening and defining for a natural fluttery effect. 

Add a light coloured eyeliner (flesh or white) under your upper lash-line and along the waterline to create the illusion of bigger eyes.

Soft, diffused eyeshadow 
Soft, blurred eyeshadow in pink & nude hues can help further accentuate flirtatious eyes. You could even use a sweep of blush across the eyelids, to tie the whole look together. 

Feminine accessories 
Finish off your look with delicate, floaty clothes and accessories. A classic crisp white shirt, instantly becomes feminine and flirty with a statement black ribbon in the hair.
