Alexandra Stan - Mr. Saxobeat Music Video look

If you haven't heard Alexandra Stan's song "Mr. Saxobeat" yet, then you probably don't live in Europe. This song has been playing like crazy on the radio here! It's very pop-y and catchy, you can watch the original music video here: link

I loved Alexandra's bold blue look in the video! It's very eye-catching and edgy.

Here is my take on this gorgeous look. Please excuse the huge watermarking, my images get stolen so frequently and used in other people's portfolios! Can you tell I bought some new lighting? What do you think of it for image quality?

Here's my tutorial for this look, and yes, the intro is quite "out there". I felt a bit funny filming it, but in the end I had a blast turning up the song really loud and dancing around a bit - I just wanted to try something different for this!

Lancome Teint Idole foundation, Ben Nye Natural Blush, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Shimpagne,

MAC Sea Me Shadestick, Cover Girl loose powder, Kryolan Night Blue L1125, Ben Nye Cosmic Blue, Sugarpill Bulletproof, Sleek Oh So Special palette (light cream color), NYX White, Sephora Keep Blue eyeliner, Lancome Artliner in black, random false eyelashes from ebay, Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara

MAC 15 Minutes lipstick, Margaret Astor Baby Pink lipgloss

Kiko Milano Nr. 336

  6. blue is hard to pull of I think but it looks amazing on you

  7. I have actually heard this song on the radio here in the U.S. It's a great dance song and the makeup in the video is fantastic... you did such a great job recreating the look. Gorgeous as always!

  8. I love the whole lighting set up. You should do a video showing us your lights and everything! Love the look!

    Alexandra Stan is a Romanian singer & I live in Romania.
    Like ur make up. ;)

  11. To remove the dark shadows from the photos... you can use a reflector on the other dark side which will reflect some of the light into the shadowy area...
    if you don't want to get a reflector you can just a big white piece of paper... that will do as well...
    Great look and good lighting...

  12. They play it in the US (Florida)! Just recently though, love it!

  13. I love this. You look sexy in this make up!
