Amidst the glitz and flamboyant designer outfits, Sex and the City has held a soft spot in the hearts of fashionistas worldwide for over a decade. Now the highly anticipated and unabashedly extravagant sequel to the 2008 film, Sex in the City 2 is set to hit cinemas in the next few weeks… and Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte are jet setting off to the exotic shores of Abu Dubai in SATC2, for some serious seduction and shopping!

They are the epitome of the modern cosmopolitan woman’s dream.

The Makeup Store has answered the prayers of many a Sex and the City fan, with a range of makeup pieces to ensure you too can look as good as the New York foursome, for your next night out on the town.

The coveted staple look of Carrie, guaranteed to wow with any outfit, is the smoky lined eyes with pale lips. Effortless glamour for a shopping day, or a night of revelry at the latest club!




The Eyes


So achieve your smoky seductive eyes is easier than you think! First apply a layer your blackest eyeliner as a base. Then use a dark shimmery eye shadow, such as The Make Up Store’s new Cyber Shadow in a metallic shade- dampen your application bush for a darker smouldering look.


Outline the tops and bottom of your eyelids, and smudge a little with your finger. Go back with your Cyber Shadow and blend the edges of the eye liner into a softer sultry style. Finish with a few coats of mascara, and you’re ready to roll!





The Lips


Before you go straight for the lipstick, there are few steps to make your lips look extra fabulous. Firstly, make sure your lips are moisturised without blemishes or cracks. Then its time to line your lips with some creamy Makeup Store lip liner in Cherie. Lip liner is particularly important when you’re transforming your lips into an entirely different shade, in this case a creamy pink nude to balance out the dark smokiness of the eye makeup. Lip liner also helps to accentuate the volume of the lips, and stops the lipstick from bleeding.

For nude lips, it’s a good idea to line your lips with the pencil, then cover the inside of your lips with the colour to get a longer lasting effect.




After your liner, you can add a creamy nude lipstick , such as The Make Up Store’s Exit lipstick. Lipstick can often leave your lips feeling dry, so the additives of shea butter and avocado oil to the Make Up Store lipsticks are perfect! The use of a lip brush also gives better even finish for lipstick.




The Glow


With such dark dramatic eyes, you don’t want to overdo the rest of your makeup. That’s why something subtle and shimmery is best, just to get a bit of extra glow on your cheeks.




 The Makeup Store’s Wonder Powder is a mineral-based loose powder you brush to accentuate your cheek bones, or even brush lightly all over the face to  give a dewy effect.


You can easily mix a primer with Wonder Powder to get a creamy foundation (best applied before the eye makeup) giving off a natural glow and brightening your whole face.
