If, like us, you were wowed by Amal Clooney at the Venice Film Festival, then, like us, you will be happy to know how she got the look.

While Amal had make-up supremo Charlotte Tilbury on hand to get her to look like this, the British artist has shared her secrets with us.

Step 1: Prep the skin with Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask and then apply a generous layer of Magic Cream. Use Magic Eye Rescue around the eyes to finish.

Step 2: Use Magic Foundation in shades 5 and 7 and then apply Magic Foundation in shades 5 and 7 to hide any imperfections. Hint: think of concealer like painting by numbers. Use only where needed.

Step 3. To create killer cheekbones, apply New Hollywood Contour Wand in medium/dark for soft contour, using a Hollywood Complexion brush. Follow this with New Hollywood Beauty Light Wand highlighter on top of the cheekbones, for luminosity and radiance.

Step 4: Define the eyebrows with Brow Lift in Supermodel to add structure to the face.

Step 5: Apply a wash of Eyes to Mesmerise cream eyeshadow in Marie Antoinette, lightly blended out towards the eye socket for gilded lids.

Step 6; Finish eyes with a feline flick with Rock 'n' Kohl liquid eyeliner pencil in Barbarella Brown followed by Full Fat lashes mascara on the top and bottom lashes.

Step 8: For the lips, mix Matte Revolution in Love Liberty (berry matte pink) with The Queen (rich, cozy crown-jewel pink) to create a custom blend.

Hint: Mix lipsticks on the back on your hand before applying.

Step 9: Finally, dust your face with Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder in shade 2, to complete the look.
