Get the Look: Lucy Hale

Lucy Hale stars as the edgy Aria on Pretty Little Liars, has a growing country music career, and has phenomenal style that I totally want to steal. As a pint-sized beauty Lucy rocks some seriously cute outfits, on screen and off, but it’s her beauty looks that really blow me away. She always seems to have the hottest lipstick shade and her brows are so bold.

Whether it’s the hot pink blush and lips she rocked at the 2014 Billboard Music awards, shown above, or her signature lucious lashes, Lucy Hale always looks great. She plays up some pretty bold features like her brows, lips, or lashes, but she never seems overdone. Instead of the usual advice to focus on one feature at a time, Lucy shows us how to create a total bombshell look.

Get The Look: Rachel Bilson on Hart of Dixie

I just started binge-watching another show on Netflix and all I can focus on is the main character’s makeup. The show is Hart of Dixie, starring the adorable Rachel Bilson. Not only is she a total style icon (hello, dressy shorts!) but her makeup looks always make me want to press pause and whip out my eyeliner.

Rachel Bilson has brown hair and brown eyes, just like me, and I think that’s why I relate to her looks so much. I feel like I can actually try them myself. Jamie King, the other female lead in Hart of Dixie, is a blonde, blue-eyed beauty, and as much as I love her Southern belle looks, I know they would look much different on me.

After watching a few episodes (okay.. binge-watching season one in a few days) I have come to love the makeup looks Zoe Hart rocks. Even in a small town she has her eyeliner game on point and always has a great neutral lipstick. In addition to some great pictures of Dr. Zoe Hart, I’ve also complied a few products to help get the adorable, sassy, doe-eyed look that Rachel Bilson rocks on the show.

To get her heavily lined eye look I would recommend a smooth gel-like liner that is easy to blend and smudge. A great option for this is the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner. This creamy liner is a breeze to apply and can be blended for a smooth, smoky look.

For full lashes like Dr. Zoe Hart, try the Maybelline New York The Falsies Volum’ Express Mascara. The curved brush gets every lash and the falsies-inspired formula offers lots of volume and length.

Dr. Zoe Hart always has glowing skin and you can get the same rosy glow and a subtle bronzing with one just product, Maybelline New York Dream Bouncy Blush in Coffee Cake. This golden-hued blush is a great way to add a slight highlight to cheekbones without going for a super-girly pink shade.

To get the neutral lip looks that Rachel rocks try one of the CoverGirl Jumbo Gloss Balms. These sheer gloss balms come in 16 pretty shades so you can find the perfect one for your everyday look. You can check out my review of them here for more information.

So there you have it. An easy how-to to get the adorable look that Dr. Zoe Hart, a.k.a. style icon Rachel Bilson, wears on Hart of Dixie. Now I’m only on season one so far so don’t tell me any spoilers but let me know if you watch this show too! 

Best Look at the 2014 ACM Awards: Taylor Swift

Last night was the 2014 Academy of Country Music Awards and as usual the red carpet was packed with pretty looks that are totally inspiring for Spring. Some of the hottest stars in country music rocked the red carpet and blew it our of the water with their chosen beauty and fashion looks, but one star totally stole the show in my eyes.

Taylor Swift killed it in her black and white crop top and maxi skirt, and her hair and makeup was just as fierce.

Not only is her outfit beyond stunning (hello Angeline leg slit), but have you seen those soft curls, strappy stilettos, and smokey eyes? Taylor absolutely rocked it on the red carpet and I cannot get enough of this look. Head to toe she really pulled it off and I am totally in love with this look.

Let’s take a closer look at her hair and makeup. The lip colour is super pretty and just bold enough to be noticed but not too much that it overpowers her pretty eye makeup. Taylor stuck with her signature cat-eye shape but switched it up a bit with the navy colour.

Now I need to find this lipstick colour, learnt o curl my hair like Taylor’s, and invest in a maxi skirt. Her whole look is the perfect combination of sweet, sassy, and a little bit sexy. Top to bottom I love this look and it was my favourite one from last night’s 49th Annual ACM Awards.

What was your favourite look last night?

The Best Way To Wear Pantone’s Colour of The Year, as Seen on Camilla Belle

When Pantone announced the colour of 2014 as radiant orchid I was pretty intrigued to see how it would play into the beauty world. It works great for lips and eyes, and I was excited to try it out for myself. I hadn’t yet found my ultimate orchid inspiration but after seeing this recent photo of Camilla Belle at the Caveman premiere I am 100% obsessed.

Camilla rocked this orchid lipstick and looked flawless. It looks stunning with her dark hair and defined brows, and she made sure to keep her eye makeup fairly light. I can totally see myself sporting a bright lip colour like this with some great lashes and a shimmery shadow like Camilla’s.

I love the pairing of the lipstick and her dark hair colour, and luckily my hair is a similar shade. I can’t wait to rock some orchid lips this season.

Are you into the colour of the year or are you taking a pass on radiant orchid?
