I was thinking about doing this segment called Beauty Icons. Its mainly about celebrities with great makeup or style, and all the ways to get their look. Oh! And one more thing–My allergies cleared up! Yay! It feels like I can actually breathe again! Anyways, this weeks Beauty Icon is Lauren Conrad. Why Lauren Conrad? Isn’t she just an actress? Well, no. Did you know that Lauren, her hairstylist, and her makeup artist run a beauty website called The Beauty Department? I found that out on Wikipedia 🙂 The thing that I love about Lauren’s style (especially for beauty) is her winged eyeliner. She always looks so wonderful with her eyeliner like that! Since she has hazel eyes, black eyeliner will really make her eyes pop! I always have trouble with winged eyeliner….If only Lauren could show me how! Fortunetly, I’ve got some easy steps for acing winged eyeliner, just like Lauren’s.
1. Don’t use a pencil for the winged liner. Instead, use liquid liner! It a lot easier for getting the perfect wing. You will need pencil for one thing, though–To trace. First, you want to create the shape of the wing using your pencil liner. It will help avoid blotches when your using the liquid liner.
2. Once you’ve used the pencil to start out with, its finally time to grab that liquid liner! Use one quick, but gentle stroke and flick it up and the outer corner for the perfect wing. It’ll look almost professional!
3. In case your liner runs, the most simple thing to do it grab a tissue and blot gently. Your liner will eventually become dry, minute by minute. Don’t do a lot of running around after you’ve applied. This could just make it run even more.
Well, looks like you’ve got Lauren Conrad’s look! Well, theres one thing I forgot to mention–the lipstick. In my opinion, I think Lauren looks great in every shade of lipstick. But, when there comes a time to choose, what shall it be? Should it be the more natural gloss, or the deep red, like this picture [of Lauren Conrad]
If you want a more girly and natural look, I’d go with the glossy light pink. This gives you more of a feminine touch, and you’ll look pretty without even trying! If your trying to go for more of a mature, sophisticated look, I’d definitely go for the deep red lipstick. It’ll stand out, proving that your totally-ready to make a move with this super-fierce look (you’ll definitely stand out in the hallway)! Well, there you have it! What I love about Lauren Conrad’s beauty style! If you have any ideas on a Beauty Icon you want me to write about, just comment on this post. I’d love to hear from you guys!
