I made this look for my second prom look. This is inspired by Anna Kendrick at the 2010 Academy Awards.
Please keep in mind that I am a) not fair skinned and b) will never look anything like her, so no matter how hard I try, this makeup will always look completely different on me than it does on her. Mostly because the skin tones and colors we have are so different that the colors I use will look different on us.
Anyways, I made this look for those of you who are fair and who do want a very neutral and almost non-makeup look to you.
This look is based on warmly accentuating all the features… the eyes are accentuated with a warm brown and some light shimmer, the cheeks are accentuated on the apples with a cute, warm pink glow, and the lips are accentuated with an amped up version of the color of her lips, but it’s not overwhelming at all.
I think these colors look best on somebody that does have the same combination as her (darker hair, blue eyes, very fair, matte skin).
In an unlikely (unlikely for me at least) twist of events, I also filled in my brows. Hers are clearly filled in, and it helps pull her look together and keep everything clean.
