You may remember my Prada Candy tutorial from when I first started blogging. It wasn’t that great (I was a new blogger) but I still enjoyed attempting to replicate Leah’s look. She is such a beautiful woman and I definitely don’t look like the new Bond bombshell.
However, once again I have grabbed my makeup brushes and made my own version of Leah Seydoux’s makeup for her covershoot in this month’s UK Vogue.
For the face, I built up coverage using very light layers of my Nars Sheer Glow. I didn’t want it to cake so this method made sure I had full control of the product. For any extra areas of redness I used what ever was left of my Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. Since I have just finished a night shift, I used a light layer of Maybelline Erase Eye concealer to hide any dark circles.
To keep everything in place, I used Maybelline’s Fit Me Powder, buffing this in lightly to remove any oil on the skin. To contour my cheekbones, I used my ever faithful Body Shop Honey Bronzing Powder, dusting that on my cheekbones and under my jawline. As for blush I used this gorgeous little Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in ‘Gorgeous Berries’. For once I didn’t take this onto the apples of the cheeks, concentrating the product on the jaw bone. Since Leah has a dewy look to her skin, I added a touch of highlight from the Bare Minerals California Bronze palette.
Leah does have a less defined arch in her brows than I do, so I had to round my brows off slightly at the arch of the brows using my Benefit Brow Zings. On the lid of the eye I first primed the lids using MAC’s Paintpot in ‘Painterly’. Then for the eyeshadows I used a mix of MAC’s Jest and Expensive Pink eyeshadows, taking the shadow up into the crease, and blending it softly.
On the bottom lash line there looks like a hint of brown eyeliner, so I used a light touch of Urban Decay’s Glide On Liner in ‘Demolition’ close to the waterline. I then gave my eyes the wide awake look with lashings of Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, and Benefit’s Roller Lash Mascara on my lower lash line.
I really struggled to find a colour similar to the peachy shade used in her cover shoot (which is MAC’s ‘So Good’) so I first lined my lips using Rimmel’s Exaggerate Liner in ‘Pink a Punch’ and went over this with MAC’s Captive Lipstick. It didn’t quite turn out the way that I wanted, but I liked it anyway.
To give the lips a healthier look I added a layer of Bare Minerals Cream Glaze.
And that is my Leah Seydoux inspired makeup tutorial. How do you think I did this time? Are there any other celebrity makeup looks you would like to see me attempt to recreate?
Bye for now!
