Grazia’s Social Media Editor Phoebe Parke shows us how she uses the No7 NEW Match Made CUSTOM BLEND Foundation Drops to create three wearable looks that you can rock at a number of different occasions. From hitting the gym to attending a lunch meeting or even that all-important first date, these makeup looks and tips will see you through anything…

Look 1: Low-key Makeup

Phoebe is wearing one drop of the No7 NEW Match Made CUSTOM BLEND Foundation Drops in ‘Warm Sand’ mixed with No7 Perfect and Protect Intense ADVANCED Day Cream; No7 Beautiful Eyebrow Sculpting Pencil; No7 Pop & Glow Cream Blush; No7 Lash Impact Ultra Mascara; and No7 Stay Perfect Lipstick in ‘Cinnamon Spice’.

Ideal for: The gym, running errands, and dropping kids off at school.

For an off-duty look, keep your makeup simple with a minimal-coverage base, nude lip and mascara. Phoebe’s top tip for wearing off-duty, low-key makeup is to apply your No7 Match Made CUSTOM BLEND Foundation Drops using your fingertips. “Applying makeup with a sponge or brush can sometimes make it look a little heavy, so when I just want to perfect my base but not look like I’m wearing loads of foundation, I ditch the tools and use my fingers instead! I mix one drop of the No7 NEW Match Made CUSTOM BLEND Foundation Drops in ‘Warm Sand’ into my No7 Day Cream in my hands and then pat this gently into my skin always making sure to use dabbing motions around my eye area where the skin is more delicate.”

Look 2: Workplace Makeup

Phoebe is wearing two drops of the No7 NEW Match Made CUSTOM BLEND Foundation Drops in ‘Warm Sand’ mixed with No7 Perfect and Protect Intense ADVANCED Day Cream; No7 Beautiful Eyebrow Sculpting Pencil; No7 Pop & Glow Cream Blush; No7 Lash Impact Mascara; No7 Stay Perfect Amazing Eye Pencil in ‘Black’ and No7 Moisture Drench Lipstick in ‘Sugar Plum’.

Ideal for: Lunch dates, the office, and important meetings.

Look the part when you’re attending an important lunch meeting by opting for a medium-coverage foundation, slick cat eye and bold lipstick - after all, you do mean business. For this look, Phoebe added two drops of the No7 NEW Match Made CUSTOM BLEND Foundation Drops into her No7 Day Cream to create a higher coverage base. This time she applied the foundation with a stippling makeup brush and used a sponge to conceal her eye area.

Look 3: Evening Makeup

Phoebe is wearing three drops of the No7 NEW Match Made CUSTOM BLEND Foundation Drops in ‘Warm Sand’ mixed with No7 Airbrush Away Primer; No7 Beautiful Eyebrow Sculpting Pencil; No7 Pop & Glow Cream Blush; No7 Lash Extender Mascara; No7 Stay Perfect Amazing Eye Pencil in ‘Black’ and No7 Stay Perfect Lip Lacquer in ‘Sweet Pink’.

Ideal for: Dinner, a first date, and a night out with friends.

When you really want to wow with your makeup, first you need to start with your base. Nothing short of a flawless coverage will suffice, so look to the No7 NEW Match Made CUSTOM BLEND Foundation Drops for help. Phoebe tells us that before she heads out for an evening event, she mixes three drops to her No7 Airbrush Away Primer, and then applies this with a makeup brush. “For the evening I like to use three drops for a fuller coverage, when I’m after that flawless, airbrush effect. I also always don a striking lip with a feline eye to help me create a sultry evening look.”
