As the new brand ambassador for the fashion label Prodiga, the beautiful Millie Mackintosh is the epitome of ethereal beauty in their current campaign. Millie’s hair stylist Miguel Perez said: ‘My inspiration for the shoot was Rupunzel,’ Miguel had the secret help of a few hair extensions to transform Millie’s shoulder length hair into luxurious long locks.
This natural and soft look will compliment this summers pastel trend perfectly. Take a look at Millie in action:
Below I have attempted to create a similar ethereal beauty look inspired by this summers peachy pastels trend.
EYES: For the eyes I’ve used a soft green and pink to define the eye. Start by applying Benefit’s creaseless cream shadow to the base of your eyelid to ensure a soft finish once your makeup has been applied. I’ve then used two MAC eyeshadows-one for the base of my eyelid and one on the upper eyelid as they are very high in pigment and blends very well which creates a seamless finish. First I applied MAC ‘swimming’ followed by MAC ‘swish’. Bring the pink tone right up to the brow and blend. I then used two eyeliners: A thick coat of Barry M’s Liquid eyeliner in ‘Mermaid green’ followed by a thin coat of Rimmel’s exaggerate auto waterproof eye definer in ‘emerald sparkle.’ For the eyelashes I applied Eyelure false lashes in intense (140)
Underneath the eyes I applied Rimmel’s ‘emerald sparkle’ again and then used a white eyeliner on the inner lower lid to make my eyes look bigger.
Face and Cheeks:
I firstly applied MAC studio fix foundation . Secondly I applied MAC bronzing powder in ‘golden’ contouring my cheeks and temples. I then applied By Terry Rose de Rose sheer liquid blush to the apple of my cheeks… as its a cream it blends easily and gives a nice glow which I emphasised with Revlon Skinlights Face illuminating Lotion.
Lips: For my lips I used MAC lipstick in ‘creme d’nude’ followed by Bobbi Brown brightening lipgloss in Peach to give a glossy finish.
