Yesterday I shared my inspiration for September (check it here), included was this makeup look from the LC Lauren Conrad September campaign. I liked I it so much I decided to recreate it with products I had.
The key points to recreate from Lauren Conrad’s look is her flawless skin, thick winged liner and a deep berry/Bordeaux lip. I will never be quite so flawless but foundation is the right starting point to this look.
Face: Avon Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Liquid Foundation in Creamy Natural, mark. Just Blushing in Dollhouse (no longer available try Avon Ideal Luminous Blush in Heavenly Pink) and for highlighter I used mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Cubes in Coral.
Lauren’s eyes seem to have a bit more of a rose gold and bronze shading to them but I was inspired to just go with a light shimmering pink all over my lids. The pink and burgundy play so well together in her outfit so well it inspired me to leave it just as is. If you wanted to go more true to her look I would work in the mark. On The Dot pallet in Neutral in the outer V and middle of lid. I used Lauren’s favorite mark. liner for the wing and lots of mascara to recreate her full lashes.
Lips: Avon Beyond Color Lipstick in Revenge. Avon just re-released their Beyond Color lipstick in an updated formula and new shades along with classic favorites. This shade Revenge is the perfect deep berry/bordeaux shade I’ve been looking for. (and spot on for this recreation!).
BONUS: Not sure if you’re as big of a fan of the LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s collection as I am. BUT tonight they’ll be airing her first runway collection for the line live from NY Fashion week. Be sure to head over to kohls.com at 7pm est to get the deets. Download the app periscope to view on your device. That navy moto jacket with the rose gold detail is calling my name! I love how fun and creative this line is, they do a great job sticking with the esthetic and keeping things unique!
PS. I’m going to throw this out there… Galaxy S5 camera is the WORST. These images were taken with the front facing camera which is even worse then the backside. But makeup pics and front facing selfie camera go together like pb & jelly! I can’t believe what an inferior product Samsung made with this camera. It rarely focus and the images are grainy and horrible even in natural light. I’m too lazy to bust out my slr, set up a tripod and use my remote when I have a self facing camera in the palm of my hand. If there was ever a reason to upgrade your phone this would be it… I despise it. So sorry for the crappy images, maybe because I’ll be wearing this look all Sept. long you’ll see me in person and be like killer lipstick!
