Day 25 – Inspired by Celeb

After today’s post one might definitely think that I’m a crazy fan of Milla Jovovich, which I am not.

???????????????????????????????

Well, I do quite like her and definitely think that she is a beautiful woman. But it’s just that I came across this photo of her yesterday, while searching for L’Oreal adverts with her, and totally loved the look. So that’s what I’m going to do today.

Milla-Jovovich-para-LOreal-Paris

I start with my usual face makeup – there’s no need to bronze or highlight the skin here.

Then I do the eyes. I cover the upper eyelid with this colour which I cannot properly identify – is it brown? Or grey? Or taupe?

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

With another similar colour (honestly, so similar that I can’t even tell if it’s lighter or darker!) I draw an arch above the crease, with its start and end points coinciding with those of the eyelid. Then I fill the arch in with the same colour.

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????  ???????????????????????????????

Then I draw on my eyeliner over the eyelashes. The line is not too thick, but should be quite visible.

???????????????????????????????

I use an eyepencil on the waterline, and the smudge it with a brush.

???????????????????????????????

On top of that smudged line I apply some more of the weird-coloured eyeshadow with a really thin brush.

???????????????????????????????

Then I apply black mascara and the eyes are ready.

???????????????????????????????

As I always do before applying red lipstick, I take my red lip pencil and try to contour the lips properly – something I always have problems with. This time it looks more or less fine.

???????????????????????????????

And some lip colour finally. It’s really dark red, only it shows differently in the picture.

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

So this is how it looks like. The lip colour still looks lighter in the picture, and that’s why it doesn’t seem to match Milla’s lipstick (which it shouldn’t match with 100% precision anyway, should it?). I like the look, I think this combination of colours is quite my thing.
