Audrina from The Hills is glamming things up with a sultry coal-rimmed eye, balanced out by pretty, fresh colors on her lips and cheeks. This makeup look never goes out of style, but it can be difficult to re-create at home without the proper technique. To help out, I've put together some tips to help you get the look.
To see the step-by-step guide for Audrina's makeup,
- Face: To keep shine at bay and skin tone even under the bright lights, start by applying a primer to clean, moisturized skin. Try Laura Mercier Foundation Primer ($30). Finish off with a medium-coverage foundation with staying power, like this Max Factor Lasting Performance Stay-Put Makeup ($8) in True Beige, to keep skin looking smooth and even under the bright lights on the red carpet.
- Cheeks: Audrina gets her California-girl glow by using a bronzer on her cheeks instead of the standard pink blush. Try sweeping Rimmel Natural Bronzer ($5) in Bronze Bronze across the apples of the cheeks and up towards the temples, then lightly across the forehead, nose, and chin. Voila, instant faux tan!
- Eyes: The eyes are the focal point of Audrina's look. For this look, she used Bella Il Fiore products. Start by applying Roller Ball Eyeshadow ($11) in Don't Be Cruel to the upper lid, smudging it up past the crease, and stopping just below the brows. Get a precise, bold black line on your upper and lower lids by using Ooo La La Liner ($14) in Noir. Next, smudge a bit more of the Roller Ball Shadow underneath your lower lashes, all the way to the inner corner, keeping the line close to the lash as to avoid raccoon eyes. Finish off with a few coats of Private Eye Mascara ($14) on the upper lashes, and sweep the tip of the wand gently across the lower lashes for subtle definition.
- Lips: Keep the lips simple and fresh to let the eyes do the talking. A matte pink lipstick like NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($24) in Sex Machine should do the trick. Pack an extra punch by topping it off with a shimmery pink gloss like this Sephora Brand Super Shimmer Lip Gloss ($10) in Apricot Souffle, or wear the gloss alone for a more casual look.
