A Romantic Look for a Knight
Step 1: MAKEUPI love the simplicity of her makeup! It’s perfect for summer because it’s colorful and fresh! We’re going to start with the eyes. First, apply your eyeshadow primer all over, so that way your eye makeup doesn’t crease or smear in the heat or after a couple of hours. Next, apply a rusty-orange shade all over the lid blending upward and into the crease - try Chopper from Urban Decay’s NAKED2 palette. Now, take that same shadow and line the bottom of your eyes with it. For eyeliner, it’s best to tightline (meaning the inside of your waterline both top and bottom) with a dark brown shade. Finish your eye look by applying mascara, false lash flairs and filling in brows where there are gaps.
Moving on to face makeup, apply a tinted moisturizer or just conceal where need be. Set with a highlighting translucent powder such as bareMinerals Illuminating Mineral Veil. For blush, apply a bright peachy-pink shade to the apples of your cheeks - try Nars Powder Blush in Orgasm. Finally, for lips, I’d go with a lip stain with gloss or lip balm over it - try CoverGirl Lip Stain in Nude Kiss.
Step 2: HAIRKeira’s loose updo is effortlessly chic! She has a side braid in the front, and the rest of her loose curls are pinned up. For a step-by-step video tutorial, see below. Finally, she’s wearing a red floral headband. You can find one similar at Forever21 for a steal at $3.80!
Step 3: DRESSThe dress embraces two of the hottest trends right now - floral and the maxi dress! To copy Keira’s look, go for something on the neutral side like this one from Forever21, priced at $29.80.
