Despite not finding romance in the villa, Love Island star Abigail Rawlings ensured all eyes were on her this summer with the stunning beauty looks she created on the show.
Already a qualified tattoo artist, it’s safe to say the reality star is just as gifted in the makeup department. This week she proved that fact when she took to Instagram to recreate one of her most iconic villa beauty looks.
In a sponsored clip shared with her 425K followers, the 27 year old can be seen giving fans a step-by-step tutorial on how to copy what she labels her “favourite look” from the show.
Using only Boots-stocked beauty faves from brands like Fenty, MAC and Bobbi Brown, Abi transforms herself from completely bare-faced to fully glam. She also shares her top application tips.
“So this is one of, or maybe even my favourite beauty look that I created whilst I was in the villa,” Abi says.
“I’m going to show you a step-by-step guide on how to recreate this look using Boots products,” she adds.
Here’s what Abi used to create the look
To create a fresh and flawless base, Abi applies this cult favourite primer and moisturiser all over her face before using any makeup.
Thanks to it’s skin-boosting ingredients like hyaluronic acid, shea butter and vitamin B5, this nourishing cream gives her skin an instant lit-from-within look.
Abi favoured this medium-to-full coverage foundation for her time in the villa. It was the perfect choice for filming abroad as the formula not only lasts all day, but also reduces the appearance of sweat and excess shine.
The Islander applies this creamy concealer under her eyes, alongside her nose and across her forehead and chin for a contoured effect. She then blends that in with a flat brush.
“It’s so easy to blend,” Abi says, telling fans she first got introduced to Rihanna’s makeup brand in the villa and hasn’t turned back since.
“I pretty much fell in love with every single product that I touched,” she adds.
After applying her concealer, the star uses this clever contour stick to give some dimension, applying the product to her cheekbones, forehead and along her nose. She then blends in with a beauty sponge.
For an extra brightening boost, Abi applies this powder over where she put her concealer, revealing it’s the secret to her “flawless finish”.
Whilst the Islander doesn’t specify the shade she uses, we’d guess it’s either Banana Bread or Pound Cake, which feature golden undertones for brightening and disguising under-eye darkness.
During her time in the villa, Abi favoured Eylure’s faux mink Royal Heiress lashes, which she sticks to her powder-free lids for added drama.
Abi applies this popular lip product in the shade nude-pink shade Lady Be Good, which complements her complexion perfectly.
To finish off the look, Abi adds shine to her lip look using this Fenty gloss in the brown shade Fenty Glow. The star reveals she’s “obsessed” with the beauty buy.
