Blake Lively in Glamour Magazine

I adored these pictures of Blake Lively in the July issue of Glamour magazine - and can I say I always have major hair envy when I see pics of her? Anyway, I loved the retro feel of this photo spread, very Audrey Hepburn inspired but with a modern twist. I just knew I had to recreate this makeup look. It's a bit hard to see the eyes up close, but the last picture (bottom right) gives the best insight when you zoom in - medium brown eyeshadow with a smoked out dark eyeliner, full lashes, and distinctly peachy nude lips. Here's my take on this look (keep in mind these are taken at night with flash whereas in the magazine it looks like natural daylight so it's hard to capture the same effect on pictures.)

Face & Cheeks
Lancome Teint Idole foundation, Neutrogena Healthy Skin foundatio, Ben Nye Blush in Natural and Latte

MAC Bare Canvas Paint, Ben Nye Cork, Ben Nye Toast, Lancome Le Crayon Khol in Noir, Catrice I am a Coal Girl, Red Cherry Lashes (forget which number since I lost the case for them), L'Oreal Volume Million Lash mascara

MAC Myth Lipstick, Barry M Nr. 147

Barry M Cyan Blue

    Is there a MAC alternative to the Barry M lipstick?
    I really want a good lipstick in the colour that you used.

    Really love all your tutorials. I was wondering if you could do a tutorial or maybe just recommend some products to reproduce the look of Miley Cirus on her video Can't be tamed.

  11. Mir geht es auch immer so mit Blake´s Haaren.
    Ich habe allerdings zwie Youtuberinen entdeckt, mit Hilfe derer Tutorials man viele der Looks einfach und ohne Profikentnisse kreieren kann.

    this is perfect i really love this one!!! You are lucky to have those beautiful green eyes mine are brown and when i tried this one it was great but not as gorgeous as yours.
    I have a request by the way, i really do love make up and i'm pretty good with it but few days ago i bought a red eye liner and i ve no idea how to use it, i think i've watched something on red make for the eyes and i just wondered if you could do something on a totally red look;
    that's it and thanks for tutorials they really are the bests i've watched

  16. this is really such a timeless look. thanks for the tutorial. :)

    Julia this is lovvvvveeeeeely. I'm Latina so most of the time I have to adjust the colors to achieve the same look. Still I just love how you show the technique to achieve the look.
