2011 MTV Movie Awards: Ashley Benson’s deeply lined eyes
Mon, 6 June 2011 2:35PM
Ashley Benson’s flirty dress in neutral tones at the 2011 MTV Awards was the perfect excuse to play up her eyes. If she was wearing a black dress we would probably expect this smouldering makeup to look a little goth. But when your face is fresh and the outfit fun, you can definitely pull this off, and achieve the same level of gorgeousness that Ashley did.
Wanna give it a go? Here’s how…
Step 1: Smooth your complexion by buffing a pressed powder mineral foundation over any unevenness. Try ELES Mineral Makeup Mineral Foundation Powder, $61.50.
Step 2: Swirl a rosy pink blush over the apples of your cheeks.
Step 3: Define your brows (how amazing are Ashley’s?!) with a brow powder, using light feather strokes.
Step 5: Draw along the upper lash line in a super thick line, extending slightly further out at the outer corner. Draw another thick line above that, practically filling in the entire lid with black eyeliner.
Step 6: Along the lower lash line, draw a similarly deep line from the inner corner to the outer.
Step 7: Grab a sponge applicator or angled eyeliner brush and softly smudge the edges ever so slightly.
Step 8: Brush mascara through your lashes.
Step 9: Finish with a light slick of a pretty pink lippie, like Maybelline New York Color Sensational Pearls Lipcolor in Pearly Pink, $16.95.
