I love watching TV shows and trying to emulate the character’s makeup. Call it a hobby.
Well anyway – one look in particular struck me (maybe because the character’s name is Clare like me…ok yes that’s why) After seeing her close up, I deducted the whole look was in the eye makeup. Jet black eyeliner strategically placed to heighten and stylize the eye’s natural shape while also making the eye appear larger. Here’s what it looks like completed.
To get this look, first focus on making your skin look as flawless and pretty as you can. I’d recommend a good primer, followed by NYX’s photogenic foundation and concealer in your shade.
Skip the blush, although if you want you can use a matte bronzer (please no shimmer) to contour your cheekbones and nose.
1. Staying as close to the lash line as possible, trace your lid with liquid liner. Following how your lower lid would continue to go up, flick the eyeliner out for a small wing. Do not attempt this with a kohl or pencil eyeliner. They go on too thick and smudge too easily.
2. With the same liner, lightly line the first third of your lower lid.
3. Now line the last third, leaving the middle bare. If you want to widen your eyes even more, apply a white eyeliner on your rim.
It’s hard to tell on the picture but the fourth step is continuing the downward motion on the left side of your upper lid and flicking a bit of liner out, kind of like Ancient Egyptian looking eyeliner.
Finish with mascara and a nude lip. Keeping your face and lips toned down balances the look and guarantees no weird looks from people ._.
There you have it, hope you have fun with this look! I know I do!
