07 May Style Stalker File- Zendaya
Lately I’ve been obsessing over eighteen year old American actress and singer Zendaya Coleman . This girl is only eighteen and is already a trendsetter in Hollywood. Her makeup looks are always flawless and daring and she pulls it off with sass and confidence, something that is rare to find in a girl at such a young age. Zendaya has varying beauty looks and always takes major risks when stepping out onto the red carpet, but this recent one of her at the Grammy Music Awards has to be one of my favourites! I absolutely love this edgy look with her short pixie cut that was styled with wispy ends to add some texture to her bold make up look.
Base: to get that soft flawless look use a primer to smooth the appearance of pores using Benefit The Porefessional $31. This will minimize the appearance of your pores and will create an even base for your foundation.
Foundation: Because the look is so bold you want to go with a matte foundation. Using Revlon’s Colour Stay 24h Foundation $34.95 this will create a nice even matte base.
Cheeks: Zendaya is naturally tanned so her makeup artist would have applied a lot of bronzer to her skin. Because the look is quite strong there isn’t a lot of contouring going on so you just want to warm the skin up lightly with a matte bronzer Maybelline Dream Terra Bronzer $15.95. On top of the cheekbone apply a small amount of highlighter The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer $34.95.
Eyes: The eyes are smoky and sultry. Use matte shadows when creating this look. Firstly apply an eye primer MAC Paint pot Groundwork $35 to your lids with your finger and blend out to avoid fall out and for the shadow to stay on. The best palette for this look that has all the colours you need is Too Faced’s Chocolate palette $65. With a fluffy blending brush apply salted caramel to the crease of the lid and blend softly up towards the brow then apply semi-sweet (a dark brown shade) to the lids of the eyes and blend softly towards the crease. Also blend underneath your lower lashes to get that smoky effect. Apply a liquid liner L’Oreal Superliner Perfect Slim in Intense Black $24.95 to the lids of your eyes and fill in your waterline with a black pencil L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Kajal Eye Pencil Oriental Black $19.95 and apply a pair of false strip lashes Katy Perry Eylure Lashes Cool Kitty $14.99.
Lips: The lips are a glossy mauve/brown colour. Start by lining your lips with MAC’s Subculture Underground Pink lip pencil $30. Then apply MAC’s Desire lipstick $36 to your lips. To get that extra gloss apply a clear gloss to the lips MAC Clear lipglass $35.
