Since so many of you have been writing in and requesting how to get Lauren Conrad's fresh-faced makeup look, I've decided to give you a little treat in honor of the season finale.
This picture is from the finale party, where LC arrived with a perfect coif, sparkly eyes, and a pretty bubblegum-pink pout. For more insight into beauty from The Hills, check out all of my Beauty Quizzes from Season 3!
And for a full list of product and application suggestions,
- Face: Begin by using a creamy concealer around the eyes and on top of any red areas or blemishes. Next, take a little bit of foundation and dab it on the forehead, nose, chin, and cheeks. Blend well (especially along the jawline) using a sponge. Dust a little bit of setting powder to the skin as a final touch.
- Cheeks: Begin by dusting the forehead, nose, and all around the hairline with a matte bronzer. Next, apply a sheer-pink powder blush such as Bobbi Brown Blush in Nectar to the apples of the cheeks, blending upward along the cheekbone.
- Eyes: Getting Lauren's icy-hot eyes is easier than you think. The first step is applying a neutral shadow all over the lid. Next, use a black, slightly-shimmery shadow like Shu Uemura Pressed Iridescent Eye Shadow in Black; blend it starting right above your lashes to just under your crease. Using a black-liquid eyeliner such as Flirt! Cosmetics Opening Line in Ebony Edge, carefully line your upper and lower lashes. Create a thicker line on the top lashes and extend it out just a little bit for a catlike-winged effect. Then, take more of the black shadow and apply it over the liner for a smokier and softer effect.
Apply two coats of black mascara and attach false eyelashes for additional drama. Lastly, take a silver cream shadow like Vincent Longo's Eye Souffle in Argeto and using a Q-tip,carefully dot and blend the shadow to the "V" along the inner corners of your eyes.
- Lips: Lauren's lip look is all about a pop of sheer color. Try using a bright pink lip gloss such as Benefit Her Glossiness V.I.P. Lip Gloss in Who Are You Wearing and keep reapplying throughout the night!
