When Love Island star Cara De La Hoyde and talented make-up artist Gabriella Floyd come together, magical things happen - and Cara's latest beauty look is surefire proof of that!

WARNING: The next picture you see might be too glam to handle.

Earlier this week, the reality star - paired up with gorgeous Nathan Massey - took to Instagram to share a snap of her party look and we were utterly mesmerised by her bold brows, gilded lids and almost metallic lips - just stunning right?

But the best part is that MUA Gabriella has given a complete product breakdown so you can look just as f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s this weekend. Actually, scrap that - the best part is that you can copy Cara's vibe from just £7.95.

Bargain alert! Now, listen up...


Ace your base like Cara with the Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation, £35. Yes, it's a little pricey but it glides on seamlessly and doesn't collect in fine lines or creases. Make like the professionals and apply the liquid gold with a damp Beauty Blender, £16 or grab the ecoTOOLS Stippling Brush, £7.99 if you don't want to shell out. It's just as amazing.

Blanket pesky dark circles and highlight to perfection with the NARS Creamy Concealer, £22 which Gabriella pinpoints as a make-up bag must-have.

Use the wand to draw an upside-down triangle shape underneath your eyes, swipe a little down the centre of the nose and on the centre of the forehead and blend into your foundation base with your Beauty Blender. Hello, bright skin!

If you want chiselled cheekbones a la Cara, start with a good matte bronzer. Gabriella buffed Bobbi Brown's Bronzing Powder, £28.50 into the hollows of Cara's cheeks and up towards her temples. Dust a little along your jawline, too.

Gabriella layered the NARS Dual Intensity Blush in Liberation, £30 over the bronzer for a subtle flush of colour - just be sure to pay attention to the apples of your cheeks for a pretty, natural, ethereal look. Wet your blusher brush to dial up the intensity or play it down by swiping the pigment on dry - we're obsessed!

It's all about the sharp-as-hell highlight this year and Gabriella grabbed the infamous benefit, Watt's Up, £24.50 (Kim Kardashian is a huge fan, too) for a gorgeous, lit-from-within glow.

Dab the cream stick onto the back of your hand and use the soft pad of your middle finger to dot it along your cheekbones. Fake a cutesy button nose by popping a little on the end, too.

Eyes & eyebrows:

According to make-up genius Gabriella, Cara loves a bold brow so the pair opted for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, £15.50 to fill in any sparse hairs. Use swift, upwards motions and be sure to comb the brush through afterwards for a soft finish. Harsh lines are a no-no.

Keep your brows on lock with a swipe of the benefit Speed Brow, £13 and you'll be good to go.

Gabriella blended M.A.C's failsafe Eyeshadow in Soft Brown, £16 into Cara's crease and turned the glam factor up a couple of notches with Makeup Geek's Eyeshadow in Grandstand, £7.95.

Use a flat brush to pack this onto the centre of the eyelid and use a clean brush to dust away any shimmer debris.

Like all good make-up artists, Gabriella used Ardell's Demi Wispies, £5.49 to make Cara's peepers pop. If you're a falsie novice, mask any gaps between your eyelid and the lash with a line of Inglot's Gel Liner in 77, £12. It won't budge, promise!

To amp up the drama, apply a slick of Gabriella's favourite mascara, benefit's Roller Lash, £19.50, and make sure to give the bottom lashes a few coats, too.


Gabriella lined Cara's already perfectly plump pout with the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Iconic Nude, £16 and dabbed the M.A.C Lipstick in Peach Stock, £15.50 over the top.
