Slap extra: Shaw thing; OUR VERY OWN MARTYN FLETCHER EXPLAINS HOW HE GAVE TRACY SHAW THAT GLAM AWARDS DO LOOK.

Hair We decided to go full out for Forties glamour so instead of blow-drying Tracy's hair I combed in some deep finger waves. To create these I combed through a moussing wax after washing to give the hair texture and shine. Then I held the waves in shape with clamps, like the ones Marlene Dietrich used. Once dried the curls at the back were combed out so they flicked towards the face.

SHOPPING LIST Wella Shock Waves Moussing Wax, pounds 2.99.

Eyes To highlight the brow I ran a pale shimmering gold powder shadow under the eyebrow then a darker, burnt gold on the eyelid itself. Along the socket line I ran a dark reddy brown brushing it up and out to create more definition. For added glamour - and sweeping lashes without looking fake - I used four individual false lashes (with about eight hairs on each) on each of her eyes at the outer corners. After fusing them to the real lashes with a couple of coats of mascara, I ran a line of liquid eyeliner along the lash line, getting slightly thicker towards the outer corner.

SHOPPING LIST Chanel's eyeshadow Collection Les 4 Ombres Petillants, pounds 30.50. Eylure Duralash Individual Eyelashes pounds 4.45. Max Factor's 2000 Calorie Mascara pounds 70. Shiseido Fine Liner eyeliner, pounds 21.50.

Lips I outlined Tracy's lips with a lip pencil a shade darker than her natural lip colour. Then, because award ceremonies involve a lot of cheek kissing, I applied a lipstick base, which helps any lipstick stay put. Finally, I applied my favourite rich chocolatey berry lipstick using a lip brush for a more precise application.

SHOPPING LIST Wella's S Colors Lip Pencil in Bourbon, pounds 3.50. Guerlain's Lip Lift, pounds 16.50.

S Colors Lipstick in Chocolate, pounds 6.50 (mail order 0800 146 298).

Body Tracy's dress was strapless so we used a gold shimmer gel over her shoulders, back and arms. That way, when the photographers flash bulbs popped as she walked up the red carpet at Grosvenor House in London, her skin took on a real sheen.

SHOPPING LIST Lancaster Sun Shimmer Gel, pounds 15.
