So we've teased you with sneak peeks, revealed the cover and brought you a behind-the-scenes video from Grazia's shoot with the adorable Little Mix (see the full results in this week's issue). But here in Team Beauty, we're most excited by their make-under.
Throughout this series of The X Factor, us beauty lot were busy evaluating not only the music quality, but the contestants’ hair, make-up and golden St Tropez tans while playing our favourite game of guess-who’s-wearing-the-most-hair-extensions. But as those of you who've already devoured the new issue know, we've wiped off the girls' sparkly eyeshadow and ditched the bright lipstick to show the natural beauty of Perrie, Jade, Jesy and Leigh-Ann. Oh yes.
So as well as an abundance of McQ by Alexander McQueen fashion pieces, we called in a whole new makeup wardrobe for the foursome. Think glossy bouncy blow-dries, on-trend sculpted brows and matching '60s eyeliner flicks, which are set to be huge news in the beautysphere come 2012. In celebratory style, we’ve rounded up our pick of the best eyeliners about right now.
1. MAC Penultimate Eyeliner in Black, £14 – For unrivalled precision and an incredibly carbon black line.
2. Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, £13– For some of the the best staying power out there.
3. By Terry Intensive Liquid Eyeliner in Ligne Blackstar, £34.50 – When black is too full on.
4. Shu Uemura Liquid Eyeliner Pen, £11.50 – A makeup artists favorite
