I have a special place in my heart for Lauren Conrad not only because Bree and Bailey are obsessed with The Hills, but because she gave a shout-out to Makeup Bag in her mark video earlier this year. Also, she is so dang cute!
Earlier this week, Lauren launched her new line LC Lauren Conrad at Kohl’s in Los Angeles, CA. I got the scoop from celebrity makeup artist Amy Nadine on how she created Lauren Conrad’s feminine yet edgy look:
“I started by powdering Lauren’s entire face with mark Matte-nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder in Natural/Buff, and then lightly dusted the apples of her cheeks with her favorite, mark Good Glowing Mosaic Blush in Hush Baby. To add more definition to her cheekbones, I added a contouring layer of mark Bronze Pro Bronzing Powder in Bronze.”
“Lauren never strays from her signature winged-out cat eyes, so to add some instant drama, I complimented them with a black ‘smoky under-eye’. Blending is key for this look and edges should be smeared to add depth. I started by lining her eyes with mark Get in Line Waterproof Liquid Liner in Painted Black. Then I used mark Eyemarker Color On Line in Jet a few millimeters past the outside corners of her lower lash lines. I drew a thick line that became thinner as I dragged it inward, stopping 3/4 of the length of her eye. I then smudged it gently with my pinky finger to smoke it out. Next, I took my mark Eyeliner Brush and dipped it in mark I-Mark Custom Eye Shadow in Corset dusting it on top of the line a couple times to make the original line even thicker. Then I coated her lashes with mark Make It Big Lash Plumping Mascara in Raven.”
“I completed her look by applying mark Dew Drenched Moisturlicious Lip Color in Skinny Dip followed by mark Glow Baby Glow Hook Up Lip Gloss in m.powerment Gold for a glossy, shimmery finish.”
