No secrets here…I’m super excited for the Pretty Little Liars Season 6B premiere tomorrow!!! To celebrate, I’m doing my first ever celebrity inspired makeup look and today’s muse is the gorgeous Lucy Hale (a.k.a Aria Montgomery).
I’ve had this photo of Lucy saved on my phone for quite a while. It’s from the Teen Choice Awards last August and immediately when I saw her face floating around the Internet, I knew I wanted to try and recreate the beautiful makeup. Well, today’s the day!
The grey smokey lids and cobalt blue eyeliner is so unique and stunning. It matched her blue dress perfectly and provided a bit of an edgier look.
Unfortunately, I don’t have an eyeliner this colour, but managed to achieve a similar look by using the Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black as a base. Once I was happy with the size and shape of my wing, I sprayed an eyeliner brush with Mac Fix+ and used it to pat a combination of blue shadows directly overtop. I found it best to work one eye at a time so the gel didn’t set before applying colour. Fall-out was pretty much inevitable, which is why I waited to do my foundation and concealer after my eyes.
The end result is not exactly the same. I wish I had a more metallic eyeshadow, and it could have leaned more violet or electric blue, but I still like the way everything turned out. I had a lot of fun mimicking the look and I’m already on the lookout for more celebrity makeup inspiration.
