Here at Cosmo HQ, we are obsessed with beauty big shots, Mona Kattan, Elnaz Golrokh and Maya Ahmad, so naturally we want to know exactly how the three women did their amazing make-up for our October cover shoot. So we have turned to Inglot Cosmetics for the full low-down...
But which products did they use?
Face: Start with the Under make-up base primer. Then, apply HD Foundation in shade #73 for full coverage. Using a 47S brush, seal with translucent powder #217. Using a 1SS brush, contour the hollow of the cheeks with HD Sculpting Powder in #505. Using a 24SS brush, highlight the cheekbones with Sparking Dust #02.
Eyes: Using a 6SS brush, apply Italian Kiss Freedom System Matte Eye Shadow (launching October 20th) in shade #285. Finish the look with false lashes in 30N and False Lash Effect Mascara.
Lips: Apply Italian Kiss HD Lip Tint Matte in #42 (launching October 20th) and top with High Gloss Lip Oil #03.

Using a 40TG brush, seal the skin with translucent powder #217. Using 3P brush, contour the hollow of the cheek with Freedom System HD Sculpting Powder in shade #505 and top it off with Fusion Blush & Illuminator in #204.

Lips: Mix 2 shades of the new Italian Kiss HD Lip Tint matte, (launching October 20th), in shades #45 and #48 to achieve that bohemian, festive look on your lips.
Start with the under make-up base primer. Then, using a 47S brush, apply a combination of HD Foundation #73 and AMC Cream Foundation MC100 for a medium coverage, keeping the skin naturally glowing. Brighten up the under-eye area with freedom system camouflage concealer in shade #111, using the 22T concealer brush. Contour the face using the Freedom System HD Sculpting Powder #505 on the hollow of the cheeks, and the Freedom System HD Highlighter in shade #153 on the cheekbones, cupid’s bow and tip of the nose. Add a hint of blush on the apple of the cheeks using the Freedom System Blush in shade #27. Hint: all you need is the multi-purpose 24SS brush!
Eyes: Line the lash line with Kohl Pencil in Brown (#03) and smudge it with the 80HP brush. Fill the upper and lower lid with the new Italian Kiss Freedom System Matte Eye Shadow (launching 20 October) in shade #285. Using a 6SS brush and the Italian Kiss Freedom System Matte Eye Shadow (launching October 20th) in shade #283, contour the outer corner of the eye and diffuse towards the temple to add length to the eye. Using the 4SS brush, highlight the centre of the lid and the inner corner of the eye with the new Freedom System HD Highlighter in shade #153. Add volume to your lashes with the Lash Enhancer Mascara, and brush the brows with Brow Shaping Mascara in #03.
