For the ultimate in party-girl glamour you need lashings of mascara, Hollywood red lips and of course, a girl's best friend - diamonds.

"To create this look, start with a nude-tinted moisturiser for a light natural coverage, then matte down with some loose translucent powder," says professional make-up artist Barrie Griffith.

With a black liquid eyeliner, follow the line of the top lid just above the lashes and continue to the tip of the eye - then finish with a nice tick.

Apply generous coatings of mascara to give extra length and create that false lash effect. To complete the eyes, fill in the brows with an eyebrow pencil to give the look a dramatic finish.'

For full on Monroe glamour, line the lips with a deep red liner to create a fuller pout then fill in the lips using a cherry red lip, says Barrie.
