Autumn/Winter Beauty: Urban Ballerina

Urban Ballerina – shop the trend

If you’re all about the natural beauty, emphasise your assets with a subtle smokey eye and a nude lip. We love the Urban Ballerina look, which is a wonderful girly look with a twist.


1. Blend your foundation into your skin, ensuring the coverage is even and there are no visible lines.

2. Using a blue-grey eyeshadow, apply this across your entire lid and blend into the creases of the lid for definition.

3. Highlight the brow bone with an iridescent illuminator and apply a hint of mascara.

4. A peachy blusher will add a gorgeous glow, while a pink lip gloss adds the perfect amount of colour to the lips.


Have you tried the subtle smokey eye look?

I'm Alice, Al or, if you are the five year old me, Ice (yes, I did want to be a member of Kris Kross, and yes, I did wear my jeans backwards). Womenswear Editor at House of Fraser Online, I've grown out of backwards clothes and instead chose to invest my money in vintage sportswear and bomber jackets, while inking my body with unnecessary tattoos and rapping along to every word of The Streets - Original Pirate Material. My proudest moments were seeing a shoot I styled in my favourite magazine and getting a three-dart-finish in a game of darts. Oh, and Bart Simpson was my first crush.
