As soon as award ceremonies and events such as the Oscars and Cannes roll around, we love swooning over the beauty looks that inevitably fill up our feeds. Then we quickly make a beeline for celebrity makeup artists’ Instagrams to find out just how celebrities like Hailey Bieber actually get their makeup looking so good or their skin so glowing. Whether it’s a perfectly applied French-girl lip or a precision eyeliner wing, we need to know all of the details.

“Highlighter should always be applied to look like a natural shine,” explains Chanel makeup artist Zoë Taylor.

“When working with Victoria Beckham, I would always pat a cream highlighter very high onto the cheekbones in a curve rather than a straight line. Tap onto the bridge of the nose, as this adds brightness to the skin, but always avoid the tip of the nose,” she adds.
