Mac's Lauren Parsons described the Michael Van Der Ham look as "Veronica Lake meets 2012".

She created a flawless base by using Mac Mineralise Charged Water Lotion followed by Face + Body and concealer.

Russian Red added a light stain to the lips, with lip balm lightly patted over the top and and cheeks were contoured with Taupe Powder and Lady Blush.

Brows were 50s inspired and brushed upwards with a strong arch for that elegant Elizabeth Taylor look, while Blacktrack Fluid Liner was applied in a feline shape before lashes were curled, with mascara on both the top and bottom. For that extra feline look, a half a set of falsies was added to the top lash line and eye liner was applied on the lower rim while NCIS and NW20 pencils were used on the lower lash line for a natural shadow.

Last but not least, gold leaf was added at the inner corners for an ultra-glam finish.
