I mentioned briefly in one of my latest posts that I was recovering from a stint in the ER and during that time I wasn’t wearing any makeup or doing much posting. I am here today with a really quick and pretty makeup look that I hope you will all enjoy!
Even in my late twenties, I still have my guilty pleasure shows, one of those being Pretty Little Liars. While watching it recently I was inspired to do my makeup like the character Aria played by actress Lucy Hale. I am always awe-struck by her makeup in the show and love the dark brows, thick eyeliner and perfectly blossomed cheeks. This look was actually quite easy to achieve – it just takes a few stand out things like the eyebrows and liner to achieve an Aria inspired makeup look :) I hope you enjoy this (even if you aren’t a PLL fan).
Eyes: I started with a sheer wash of Alima Pure Eyeshadow in Vanilla all over the lid and then lined my upper lashline using 100% Pure Gel Eyeliner in Black Tea. I curled the heck out of my lashes, added two coats of Dr. Hauschka Volumizing Mascara and combed through the lashes in order for them to be lengthened as well as thickened. I also added a tiny bit of Ilia Beauty Polka Dots & Moonbeams to the inner corners of my eyes and brow bone for a pretty highlight.
Brows: The brows are the stand out part of this entire look. I have naturally full brows so I didn’t have to draw outside of them to create a stronger look but if you have thin brows, I recommend filling them in with a good eyebrow brush. I just focused on darkening my brows. I started with a lighter brow pencil from Sante in Blonde 01 from the inner part of my brows. From the middle to the ends I used a darker brow pencil from Sante in Brown 02. I also used NYX Eyebrow Wax Shaper to tame the brows and make sure they stayed put. The wax also helps for the brow pencil or powder to last a lot longer.
Cheeks: To achieve a really pretty and natural pink cheek I used Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Lovely on the apples of my cheeks.
Lips: I applied a light wash of Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Petunia and used my finger to blend in W3LL People Universalist Stick in #7, Creamy Peony.
