Beauty Benefit Cosmetics



   Sometimes I just fancy trying out some new make up ideas, and when flicking through my Pinterest boards for some inspo. (Follow me if you like!) I found this image of Lily Collins with a bold orange lip, shimmery eyes and bold brows. Lily is actually one of my fave actresses, from her make up to her movies, this woman is a real inspiration to me and I was really excited when finishing this look because I was actually quite proud of the result - Even if I'm not blessed with naturally thick brows. Obviously I'll make the usual disclaimer of the fact that I'm not a professional, and this look is my own take on Lily's make up. When attempting, I also tried to make my brows even thicker, but realised that it just didn't suit me at all, so I tried to make them as bold as I could without them looking too fake. As for the rest of the make up, I'm pretty proud with the finished result, and loved the shimmery eye make up which I created quite simply using three eye shadows. So, if you would like to see how I created this make up, then scroll down below for the products...
