celebrity-inspired looks #2 - elizabeth henstridge in her popsugar interview

It's been a while!

This is a look I've been sort of wanting to do since I saw a gifset of Elizabeth Henstridge wearing what looked like pink-tinged eyeshadow.

I actually really like this look! In these photos, I look far more ghostly than I did in natural lighting, so you'll just have to take my word for it.

Start with a light peach-gold eyeshadow and press it all over your lids. Next, take a slightly darker rose eyeshadow and blend it into the outer corner of your lids. For the crease, use a coral eyeshadow that leans more pink and blend it well into the other eyeshadows, and then add a matte brown eyeshadow to define the crease even more. I had to change the shape of the eyeshadow to fit my features, but if you actually have a crease in your eyelids, you'll want more of the brown than the coral, and you might want to consider going a bit cooler in shade. Perhaps more of a taupe than a brown would be best. For the eyeliner, take a black eyeliner and line your upper water line, and then use a brown cream eyeliner to line your upper lash line and your lower waterline. I went a step further and added a taupe eyeliner to my bottom lash line, but Elizabeth's eyeliner isn't as pronounced as I've made mine.

Elizabeth has amazing eyebrow game and mine need a little enhancing, so I used a brow wax, a brow powder, and a tinted brow gel. (One day I will do a tutorial about how I normally do my brows, I promise.)

For the cheeks, a simple rosy blush will suffice, swept over the apples of your cheeks and up your cheekbone toward your temples. A lip colour close to your natural lip shade is best--Revlon's lip balm stain in Honey is one of my MLBB shades and I just dabbed that on.

I wish I had a jumper like hers, but alas, I had to make do with a blouse that is more reminiscent of Jemma Simmons' style!
