Everyone’s talking about it. What’s the deal with Delta? First she’s all grown up on Denton, then she out-babes Elle McPherson at the launch of ACP’s 30 Days of Fashion & Beauty. Then she’s smoking up the cover of Cosmo.
How did she transform from pretty little Neighbour into super hot sexpot? Life makeover etc. says current Cosmo. Yeah, we know. But, seriously, how exactly did she get the sizzle she’s rocking right now? We asked her make-up artist and buddy, Dale Dorning, to spill the precise steps he took to make Delta look so dangerous. He did it with his own brand, PROOF Cosmetics:
1. Flawless face – After Retexturising Face Primer, Dale applied Moisture Tint in Natural Glow for a fresh and even base. Then, using his dab hand with a foundation brush, he added Full Coverage Foundation as a concealer and highlighter before sweeping Mineral Rice Powder over her T-Zone for a sheer, silky finish. Lastly, to amplify Delta’s enviable bone structure and give her a sexy glow on the down low, he dusted Mineral Powder in Sand on her temples, the tip of her chin and the hollows of her cheeks.
2. Cheekbones to kill for – Dale blended his Sheer Matte Blush in Transparent Pink with Shimmer Blush in Baby Jane and brushed the colour just above Delta’s apples. “Mixing the two forms of blush gives a beautiful hint of colour with a slight shimmer that highlights and contours the cheek,” he explains.
2. Smouldering eyes – Shimmer Shadow in Boulevard was washed over the lower sections of Delta’s lids before Dale blended Matte Shadow 238 through the socket and close beneath her lower lash line. Dale then wielded his contour brush to do her outer corners in Matte Shadow 213, working it inward for dramatic impact. He then framed the smoky eye with black liner and double lashings of Lush Mascara.
Insert a slick of natural pink gloss, a bouncy blow-dry and there you have it: Route 101 to sexytown. Take it at your own risk.
