Get The Look: Victoria’s Secret Model Lily Alridge’s Bohemian Makeup
I have to be honest when I say that if I never receive another e-mail in life ever again that includes the words “bride” and “bridal collection” I won’t shed any tears. From the super annoying ones that I get from old friends back home tying the knot in exotic locations like Italy (like the starving artist that I am can really afford that, thanks) to those here that I see with huge engagement rings, you could say that I’m a bit jealous when it comes to the topic of marriage. Not bitter jealous in that I know I’m totally going to have an amazing husband one day, more like annoyed jealous in that where the hell is he and how many more duds I’m going to run into along the way?! UGH.
Anyways, I digress from the point of this post. It was to totally tell you that I did get the opportunity to attend a super cute bridal event that had absolutely nothing to do with a real bride that I know! Victoria’s Secret has this amazing new lingerie collection just for brides (well, and non-brides such as myself and maybe you can totally wear it too, just minus the stuff that says bride-to-be) and Lily Alridge is the new face of the collection. (She, of course, is engaged to be married.) While she was super nice, the only thing I really cared about is how in the heck can I re-created her glamazing low-key makeup look?! Turns out that the brand created special makeup looks with various bridal styles in mind. Lily is rocking the Bohemian look.
Here’s how you can get it (using all Victoria’s Secret Beauty products, of course):
-Line the upper and lower lash lines in Exotic Plum. Smudge slightly to blend and soften.
-Using the Eye Shadow Quad in Eye Contact, start by applying the copper shade from the lashline to crease and along the lower lashline, blending over eye liner.
-Next, sweep the light bronze shade directly onto the crease and blend well to soften the color.
-Highlight the brow bone and inside corner of eye with the light pink shade.
-Curl the lashes and apply two coats of mascara.
-Use the VS Pro Airbrush FX Face Primer SPF 20 on clean, moisturized skin.
-Even out skin with the Soft Focus Liquid Foundation with a light layer. Be sure to blend well along the jawline.
-Swirl on the Blush Trio in Bliss onto the apples of the cheeks and up along the cheekbones for a fresh pop of color.
-Swipe on a sheer coat of lipstick in Wish and top with a clear gloss for shine.
Here are the products that will help you to achieve the look!
