Check me delving into the world of celebrity inspired looks – I wanted to start a new series of videos where I at least attempt to re-create looks. This may turn out to be a complete nightmare but hey ho.
I thought I’d ease myself in by doing a look inspired by Kylie Jenner, as I adore her simple but effective make up that looks so effortless but sultry. It’s basically brows, liner and lips which I think I just about managed to pull off? At least I hope so.
I started with priming my skin with Revlon PhotoReady Primer and then buffing Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 4.25 and NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla to get a nice, flawless base.
Brow wise, I ditched the pencil and went back to basics with an eyeshadow. I chose a darker colour, NARS Coconut Grove as Kylie has much darker brows than I do. I used Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow in Bone which is a creamy, really neutral shade, just to blank out the eye before adding a dramatic winged liner using my new favourite liner, Topshop Liner in Ink. That shit is da bomb! I was going to apply lashes but couldn’t find any glue so I used lashings of Rimmel Scandal Eyes Retro Glam Mascara for lots of volume and definition. For the remainder of the face, I applied some subtle contour thanks to MAC Harmony Blush and added a smidge of NARS Deep Throat Blush. Kylie doesn’t really focus on the cheeks but I felt a little colour was required.
I finished things off with MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in Trust in Red followed by Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in 13 Rouge Jet Set which is the truest red lippy I could find but it’s got quite a bit of slip to it as it’s quite creamy with a fair bit of sheen so the lip brush ended up coming out in the end.
So, what do you think – did I get the look right?
