It’s always a good day when I get to film a make up tutorial – especially if the subject is one of my favourite vocalists! I adore Taylor Momsen and The Pretty Reckless, and when I spotted their new music video for Heaven Knows I simply had to recreate the make up look.
It’s quite different from Taylor’s usual dark, smokey eyes and occasionally black lips, but I really like it. The softer eyes and nude lips actually really suit her, and it was fun to recreate a look with a bit of a difference. Here is my tutorial video!
I really wish I had had time to try and do Taylor’s awesome, wavy hair look too but with my badly behaved locks it would have taken all day! I am due to get my hair cut and coloured on Friday though, so perhaps I’ll be more able to experiment with styles after that.
As a quick overview of the make up items you’ll need to create this look (don’t worry if you don’t have these exact brands, there’s always room for improvisation!)…
- Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
- Urban Decay Naked Palette
- Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
- Lancome Hypnose Mascara
- Smashbox Brow Kit
- Natural Collection Green Concealer
- Benefit POREfessional
- Bobbi Brown Mineral Make Up
- GOSH Darling Lipstick
- Clear Lipgloss
What do you think of the look? Do you prefer this more subtle make up, or Taylor’s usual dark black eyeshadow?
