Jessie J Inspired Make Up

This is the first make up "look" I've blogged about and I'm more than a little nervous if I'm honest. I had to rush it in the end and couldn't find some of the products I'd have liked to have used but I think I have blogged about most of them if not all before.

Anyway it's inspired by Jessie J (if you don't know who she is, definitely check out her music...)

Here is a photo of her taken from last night's Brit Awards. Personally I love her style and her sort of vampish look.

And my version...

Scary "before" shot, ugh.

And the "afters"

Products used - in this order (though I would leave foundation until after the eyes if doing again)

- Boots No.7 Lift and Luminate Foundation in Alabaster

- MAC Brule Eyeshadow over eyelid

- MAC Carbon Eyeshadow on the outer corners of eyelid and some along the lower lash line with a little through the brows

- MAC Dalliance eyeshadow on the inner corners of eyelids and highlighting

- MAC Blot Powder

- Avon Superschock Gel Eyeliner in Black

- Boujois Volume Clubbing Mascara in Black

- Models Own Scarlett Red Lipstick

Phew, so there we have it. I hope you like it? Be gentle with me. Eeeeeek. If I'd had more time I may have added some false lashes and contoured my cheeckbones a little.

Did you see the Brits? Anyone you thought looked particularly fab?

  1. Thats great - You did a great job :)

  2. honey you look gorgeous!!!!!!!!! i love the dark blunt fringe look but im too much of a blondie to pull it off. Xx

  3. Look at you ya cutie!! You look brilliant and bare a resemblance to jessie j - you really suit this look xx

  4. I love this look. Wish I could pull it off but far to o blonde and pink skinned. Red lipstick just doesn't suit me xx

  5. Thanks everyone, really appreciate the comments. I NEVER wear red lipstick and I've never felt it suited me (and I'm a bit panicky about getting it on my teeth,smudging etc etc). I might try to be a bit braver though :)


  6. Beautiful pics! Great post! Love the products! Following!

  7. Wow! I have just come across this, you look fab. Great Jessie J look :-) x
