Celebrity Inspiration

I love the show Modern Family, and I think Sarah Hyland is so pretty. I was browsing through pictures online looking for a makeup look of hers to try and recreate and I stumbled on this one of her in Nylon magazine. I love the bright pink lip/cheek combo combined with the bronze smokey eye. She has such gorgeous eyes! She also has really cool lashes on that are shaped like bows.

        Now here is my attempt. 

        I would say this look is more inspired by hers, rather than exactly like it. I did not have the bow lashes but I used individuals to try and recreate the look that they gave. She has a naturally darker skin tone than me which is another reason the it looks different. Here is a list of products I used and how I used them.

Benefit the POREfessional Primer
- I put this all over my face focusing on my t-zone, next I moved onto my eyes

Urban Decay Primer Potion in Greed
- blended this all over my lid as a base

MAC Pigment in Gold
- all over the lid blended in to the crease and along the lower lashline

MAC Pigment in Bronze
- blended into the crease and outer corner and outside half of lower lashes

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette eyeshadow in Crave
- a tiny bit blended into the outer corner and very corner of lower lashline

MAC Vanilla Pigment
- blended through brow bone and into inner corner

Maybelline Gel Eyeliner in Black
- a thin to thick line from inner corner to outer corner very slightly winged.

NYX Slide on Pencil in Black
- applied to outer half of waterline, then I moved onto skin

MAC Conceal and Correct Palette in Light
- I used the light pink as a corrector for my dark circles blended with my ring finger, and the NW10 shade as a concealer over the top. I used the NW15 color on my blemishes after I did foundation

MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in NW10
- applied all over my face and blended into my neck

MAC eyeshadow in Omega
- to fill in/shaped my brows

NYX Cream Blush in Hot Pink
- blended onto the apples of my cheeks bringing it up and a tiny bit in the contour.

MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation in NW10
- applied under my eyes and on my t-zone to set make up

Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara Water Resistent in Black
- two coats to top lashes and one to bottom.

Ardell Knotless Individual Lashed in Short and Medium
- I applied 3 short and 2 medium to inner corner and 3 short and 3 medium towards the outer corner using Duo lash glue, then added one more coat of mascara

MAC Lipstick in Viva Glam Gaga
-all over the lips

Maybelline Baby Lips in Fruit Punch
- blended on top of lipstick for added shine and to brighten the color

Last but not least,

Nars Highlighting blush in Albatross
-applied to high points of face (top of cheeks, nose bridge, center of forehead, and brow bone)

That was a really long list, but it is everything I used, you are awesome if you read it all.
Anyway hope you like the look.
Let me know what celebrity's look you really love and why, maybe I can try and re create some of them.

Thanks for reading,
