6 Celebrity-Inspired Day and Night Makeup Styles
By popular demand, we recently produced a photoshoot with photographer Erin McGinn that showcased six of the most popularly requested celebrity inspired makeup-looks, for both day and night. These looks are quite simple to achieve and can be a staple to any outfit or look. We named each look after the celebrity who often wears their makeup similar to the the looks we designed!
Here are our favorite six go-to makeup looks of the moment:
Note for all Looks: Livia’s face was prepped and primed with Laura Mercier primer, then we applied Armani Silk Foundation followed by Stila all over shimmer liquid luminizer in kitten shimmer above her cheek bones and on her brow bone to highlight her beautiful features. Her brows were filled in with Givenchy Eyebrow Show Powdery Eyebrow Pencil in Brunette
To achieve this look: Start with a clean, makeup free face. Prep and prime, and apply foundation as usual. Dust MAC ‘Prism’ blush on apples of cheeks and blend into hairline softly. Jennie Kay used MAC Subculture lipliner, followed by Makeup Forever Nude lip color in ‘N23‘. Apply a coat or two of your favorite mascara; used here, Maybelline Falsies in Blackest Black
To achieve this look: Start with a clean, makeup free face. Prep and prime, and apply foundation as usual. Making a ‘kiss face’, dust MAC Fleur Power to apples of cheeks, contouring along your cheek bone, blending outward but not exceeding the cheek bones. Apply a coat or two of mascara, used here, Maybelline Falsies mascara in Blackest Black. Using a lip blush, apply Stila lip color in Betsey, for a fun and flirty dimension to your look.
To achieve this look: Start with a clean, makeup free face. Prep and prime, and apply foundation as usual. Dust MAC ‘Dame’ on the cheeks for a blushed look. Apply a coat or two of mascara, used here, Maybelline Falsies mascara in Blackest Black. Using a lip blush, apply NARS ‘Cruella‘ to the lips.
To achieve this look: Start with a clean, makeup free face. Prep and prime, and apply foundation as usual. This look is the same as above, however, we added a new dimension with a winged wedge liner. We used Jennie Kay Beauty Brand Cake wedge liner, and NARS ‘Cruella‘ on her lips. This liner adds instant drama to her eyes, balancing with her dramatic red lip. Be bold and wear this as a casual day look, or wear as a fun nighttime look that calls attention to the eyes and lips.
To achieve this look: Start with a clean, makeup free face. Prep and prime, and apply foundation as usual. Jennie Kay used Makeup Forever Aqua Cream base in ‘N23’. She then applied and smudged Jennie Kay Brand Cake eyeliner to Livia’s top and bottom lid. Using the Makeup Forever ‘Technicolor Palate’ Black, she applied and blended just below her outer brow bone, creating a subdued and traditional smokey eye.
To achieve this look: Start with a clean, makeup free face. Prep and prime, and apply foundation as usual. Jennie Kay used the Makeup Forever Aqua Cream as a base in ‘#15’ Taupe. Livia was bronzed using a favorite of the beauty parlour, Too Faced ‘Aqua Bunny’ bronzer. Jennie Kay then applied Stila ‘Convertible Color’ in Stone on the lids, top and bottom. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12h Blush was dusted to her cheeks in ‘Tipsy’. Finally, the look was finished with Jennie Kay Brand lipgloss in ‘Hello Dolly‘.
These looks are extremely convertible, wear one look during the day and add a dramatic liner and lip to create a night look! We hope you love this shoot as much as we did!
