Notepads at the ready!

"For The Voice live finale we went for a golden look for Kylie, to enhance her natural glowing skin and set the tone for the glamorous evening that lay ahead," says Christian. "Although I used a variety of products for Kylie's look, all the applications were light to give a naturally beautiful finish.

"We started by using Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm, £23, for a little coverage, but also to moisturise and help give that dewy look.

"Then a light application of Dior Airflash Spray Foundation, £33, the spray application means you can be very gentle with this foundation so it doesn't cake or look too heavy, giving a flawless base to start creating any make-up look.

"To shape the face start with the brows - use a powder to create the shape and a touch of gel to hold in place.

"Next, for Kylie's soft glowing, golden eyes I use Yves Saint Laurent Pure Chromatics Wet and Dry Eyeshadow in shade 20, £39. This gives a glamorous, 'wet look' finish on the eyelid that really glistens under the studio lights.

"To finish off ‎the eyes, I use Stila MAJOR Major Lash Mascara‎, £14, where I layered coats to really give her lashes that full, elongated effect.

"On the cheeks, I like the warmer tones of the Urban Decay Naked Flushed Compact, £22. The little strip of highlighter in the middle is perfect to finish off the upper cheekbones.

"My go-to lipstick of the season has been Shiseido Perfect Rouge Lipstick in PK343, £22. It's just enough nude to still have the 'nude lip' but with just a touch of rose pink to make them stand out against the neutral makeup."

Cheers for the tips, Christian!
