GREAT DATE LOOKS - ROCK CHICK MAKE UP

With a little bit of rock and and a little bit of roll.... :)

My take on Taylor's Look with Blue Smokey Eyes and Rich Burgundy Lips.



The Inspiration: IT Girl Taylor Momsen with brown smokey eyes and red lips.

Apply a shimmery shadow on the peaks of your lips to highlight its shape.


Nothing says Valentines better than a red lip :)

Line and Fill your lips with MAC Burgundy Lip Liner and apply MAC Diva Lipstick.

The Givenchy Prism gives the highlight without the shine.

With an INGLOT multi purpose brush (one of my all time favourite brushes) Apply MAC Coppertone blush on the apples of your cheeks. Using an Everyday Minerals brush, apply Givenchy Prism on the cheek plane for some highlights.




Curl you lashes. Apply two coats of Rimmel Glam Eyes Mascara on the upper and lower lashes.



With the Dark blue NYX glitter palette, apply some on your lower lash line.

Almost done

With a Bobbi Brown Eyeliner brush. Apply the light blue (lower left) on the tear ducts.

With an INGLOT Flat shader brush apply the light gray (upper right on the brow bone)
Using a MAC 266 brush apply the dark blue on the lower lash line.


With a MAC 217 apply the light blue (lower left) on the crease. Make sure to blend, you should not see the 2 colours separating.


With a MAC 239 brush apply the darkest blue (lower right) from the lash line to the crease.


This is the Twilight Palette from Dior.

After blending with the MAC 217 brush. Use the MAC 219 brush to smudge the lower lashline.


Scary, I know. Use the MAC 217 to blend.

Apply MAC Feline Pencil from the lash bed all the way to the crease. Line your upper water line and lower water line.

Eye Area with the base.

Set the base for your eye make up. Apply MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre from the lash bed to the brow bone.

Dont forget to make the arch :) and to keep the brow in place, use the wax.


Keep the Brows light. You want them to focus on the eyes.

Sephora Brow Pencil in 01, Benefit Brow Zings in Light with MAC 266 brush.


The Base - MAC Select SPF Foundation, MAC Studio Fix Powder, MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer

Brushes - Bare Minerals Face Brush, Prestige Foundation Brush, Make Up Forever Concealer Brush.


Inspired by the character of Taylor Momsen, Jenny Humphries in the hit show Gossip Girl, this is my take on the Rock Chick look.


Hope you guys like it. :)
