Actress Naya Rivera's make-up look is less on the natural and more on the glam. Adept at the classic smokey eye, Naya also added an original touch of colour to her recent make-up look.

Her striking combination of electric lilac and intense black had us captivated.

Here's how you can get the same look!

Step One: the base

The base of any successful make-up look is, unsurprisingly, the foundation (or the primer but we don't all have time for that). Go for a light touch topped with just a hint of blusher or bronzer for definition... as my colleague says, you are painting your face, not a wall!

Step Two: the eye make-up

Start by tracing your upper eyelashes with black kohl.

Then, under your eyes and your lower lashes, trace a line of electric blue eyeliner, or lilac if you prefer.

Finally, use a bit of electric blue eyeshadow on the inside corner of your eye.

Finally, continue the dual effect by using black mascara on your upper lashes and blue mascara on your lower lashes.

Step Three: Your Lips

You don't want to go too intense (like Bérénice Marlohe, for example, who does smokey eyes + red lips.) As your eye make-up is intense, we recommend a simple lipgloss, nude lipstick or lip balm.

1, 2, 3... All you need to add a little *shock factor* to your look!
