For anyone with a beady eye, you may have noticed today is supposed to be a 'Thighs of Thunder' post day. However being the bimbo that I am, I thought it was Saturday today and spent the morning doing my make-up, so we're rolling with it ;)
I was just Googling away the other day, as I often do to waste some time, and came across some pictures of Lily Collins (who's in the new Mirror, Mirror film - which my friend won't come with me to see because appratenly she's heard it's rubbish ;)). Anyway, I found this beautiful picture of her...
|How stunning is she! P.s. This isn't my picture, Google image her if you want to find the link it's from :)|
And I thought I might have a cheeky go at a similar make-up/hair look. Let's all take a moment to appreciate how beautiful Lily is and therefore not raise our expectaions for my own face. ;) I chose her because I have big eyebrows too. That is genuinely the main reason. Bless my cottons.
I started off by centre parting my hair (ew, it looks SO bad on me. as hard as I try to work it it's just never going to happen), then I pinned one side of my hair back and used my Babyliss Curling Wand to curl the other side. I need more practice with the wand. My hair ended up a sort of crimpy, wavy, curl. Then I did the make-up and...
Here's my finished look, I didn't throw on a beautiful dress because I couldn't be arsed. It is Sunday lunch time after all. Haha, anyway here we go:
So that's my attempt. Got a bit excited playing around with my camera so I thought I'd show you my nails too, which are the 2 polishes I mentioned the other day. I was actually really impressed with how the eyeshadow turned out, as I don't use it that often and I'm not a pro with blending yet. I used Virgin in the inner corners and just underneath, Sin (both from the Naked palette) all over the lid, a pale lilac in the 17 Smokey Eyes palette in the centre of my eye then Rebel from the Sleek Bad Girl palette on the outter corner and crease, mixed with a touch of Dark Horse from the Naked palette. Woah, look at me getting all technical. Can I just point out as well that I know my eyebrows are bushy, but you're going to have to trust me that they look HORRENDOUS over-plucked. Ha.
Here are the products I used:
Do you enjoy re-creating celebrity looks? Or do you prefer to make up your own? I've never done it before but I actually think it's a good idea for inspiration. Even if we can't all look like Lily. Sigh.
