Kendall Jenner Make-Up Look

Wow- how beautiful is Kendall Jenner? For those of you that don’t know who she is, I have blogged about her before and it is safe to say I have a little make up and style crush when it comes to this girl. First of all look at that hair! So long and gorgeous and her make up is always so flawless. She is obviously inspired by her older sisters and has been taught at an early age how to get that Kim Kardashian look!

I love this everyday look she does, I found this picture on her twitter its an instagram shot but you can see the make up a bit better than in other photos. I think this make up is great for every day and perfect for a first date if you want to look like you didn’t spend hours in front of the mirror and you actually just look naturally great!

Get the Kendall Jenner look:

1) Eyes- First of all sweep a primer such as MAC Bare Study Paint Pot over the lid and up to the brow. Next apply a light slightly shimmery beige over the lid such as Shroom by Mac. Contour the crease with a fluffy blending brush and a warm gold eyeshadow such as Woodwinked by Mac. Next fill in your brows with the eyeshadow colour you usually use, not too thick but defined enough to give the eyes some drama. Then apply a liquid or gel liner along the lash line in a moderately thick line without flicking out at the end. Apply lashings of mascara and if you like more definition do as Kendall has done and use a charcoal grey pencil on the waterline or a soft black.

2: Face- All of the Kardashian girls love their foundation. To copy this look if you don’t have flawless skin and you need to recreate this perfect skin look I recommend Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua which has such a thin texture but a great coverage. Just smooth on with fingertips or use a brush if you prefer.

3: Cheeks- Kendall is just wearing a soft pinky peach blush and it looks like instead of wearing a powder she has a bronzer all over. My favourites to use for this look would be Nars Laguna Bronzer and Nars Orgasm Blush.

Lips: For lips use a tinted lip balm such as the Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait.

And now all we need to do is grow our hair so it goes all the way to our bums and practise that model pout, well we are halfway there at least!

Amanda Seyfried Make-Up Look

Get That Amanda Seyfried Look. After watching Amanda Seyfired last night on the Jonathon Ross show it struck me what a natural beauty she is. She wears very little make up and is always so relaxed looking, I thought this would be a great idea for day make up.

Get the look:

Face: To get Amanda’s healthy look but with a little more coverage use a foundation like Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum with a buffing or stippling brush to apply little product. Next conceal any red blotchy areas or blemishes with a concealer such as Mac Studio Finish concealer.

Cheeks: Use a pinky/peach such as Mac Something Special for a healthy glow. A cream blush creates the appearance of really healthy skin.

Eyes: First fill in your eyebrows lightly with your usual shade. Next use a lilac eyeshadow around the eyes with a slight shimmer, something like Mac Digit. Apply mascara such as Dior Show or if you are on a budget something like Maxfactor Masterpiece mascara. For this look the eyelashes should be the main focal point so make sure each lash is coated well without any clumps.

Lips: A lip balm is enough to finish the look, make sure its tinted pink to create a moisturised healthy look. For this a great lip balm is Burt’s Bees Pink Blossom Tinted Lip Balm.

To finish the look we must talk hair. If your hair is mid length to long this will be easier for you. If your hair is short just style your hair as usual but give it a bit more body at the root.

Firstly center part your hair. Make sure your hair is dry and choose sections around an inch and a half thick. Straighten these sections to get them warm and apply large velcro rollers rolling your hair away from your face and securing about mid way up the hair. Keep doing this till you get to the middle parting at the back of your head and then repeat on the other side.

Wait until your rollers are completely cool then remove them. Your hair should have a gorgeous silky wave that rolls backwards that will look more natural than if you do it with a curling iron.

Give it a try and let me know how you get on!

Kendall Jenner- New Style Crush

Move over Kim Kardashian there is a new girl in town and unfortunately for you its your younger sister!

Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner is my new style crush! She has such fantastic taste in clothes and in make up. I love this look above, she is so much more daring with her make up than older sister Kim and always manages to look gorgeous!

How to achieve this look:

A great foundation with a glowy finish, either Chanel Pro Lumiere or Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation.

A lot of bronzer!

A brick coloured base such as Constructivist Paint Pot by Mac

A brick coloured shadow from the outer edge of the eye blended in (Coppering from Mac)

A gold shadow in the inner corner blended to the center of the eye, something lighter like Ricepaper from Mac would work to highlight the inner corner.

Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner drawn all around the eye to define and lashings of mascara.

Finally a gorgeous orangey red to tie the look in together. If your thinking of splashing out Givenchy Rouge Interdit no. 14 is a great lipstick and one of my favourite oranges.

Have fun experimenting with this look!

My must-have MAC products…

MAC has long since been the shop for professional make-up artists and since it opened its doors to the public it could kind of do no wrong, although I am not a fan of the foundations at MAC there are many products i couldn’t live without:

My favourite product is MAC Studio Finish Concealer (SPF 35), alot of people prefer lighter concealers such as YSL Touch Eclait howver I have searched high and wide and havent found a better concealer for a better price point.

My second favourite product is of course any blusher by MAC my favourite for summer is Something Special a creamy consistency which gives a lovely glow to the skin can be achieved even with fingers. If you suffer from redness in the cheeks a peach blusher is a great way to combat this and still look healthy rather than a pink and of course a cream blusher lasts much longer.

Mac Lipsticks are also renowned for there lasting ability and moisturising effect that lasts all day, I usually choose a more moisturising sheer lipstick for day and something more matte at night because a matte lipstick makes more of an impact with a gloss over the top however can be drying for constant use. My favourite shade for day is a pinky nude called Hue its perfect for everyday use especially if you like a bit of drama around the eyes.
