Get the Look: Jamie King
Jamie King is a stunner. And her years as a major model lend her the ability to morph and experiment with her look in a unique way. She loves to play with makeup and she wears it so well.
I started with a light moisturizer and lip balm, as I always do, and then used the Beauty Blender to apply a light coat of foundation. I am loving Burberry's new makeup line, and their foundation is one of my new favorites. I set the base with a loose powder (I almost never use pressed--it just breaks in my kit) and then used a pretty light bronze blush that brought warmth and a touch of glow to her cheeks.
For her eyes, I used a warm bordeaux/wine color on the top lid and a touch under the lower lashes that made Jamie's eyes look incredibly blue. I used more of mid-tone bronze for the area above the crease, and softly blended it towards her brows. I darkened and lengthened her brows slightly for a little drama.... I love the contrast of her dark brows with her cool blonde.
I rarely do a lip AND an eye for the red carpet and this look was no exception. I kept it light handed by using a warm pinky nude lip that is one of my favorite colors. I thought it looked so beautiful with her skin tone.
