I am so sorry for the lack of posts this week but I have unfortunately been stuck in bed with Tonsillitis which has meant everything has taken a back seat whilst I've had endless duvet days and Prison Break marathons, lol.
I thought I would make my first post back a good one and its a YouTube video/post combined. If you didn't know I posted my first YouTube video last week (see here) and am now loving this different aspect to blogging.
One of my current celebrity obsessions is Gigi Hadid, I love her cool, effortless and chic style. Gigi seem's to be everywhere at the moment and when I heard she was going to be in the music video for Calvin Harris's new song 'How deep is your love' I knew she was going to look stunning. Gigi usually keeps her makeup minimalist and simple, emphasizing her natural beauty but when she posted the below look to Instagram account taken from the music video I knew this was the look I wanted to recreate.
Patrick Ta was the artist who worked on Gigi for the music video and he has worked with various other artists including the Kardashian/Jenner's. I have followed Patrick on Instagram for ages and his work is flawless, check him out here.
This look I recreated is a super smokey matte eye, with glowing bronzed skin (no contour) and a nude glossy lip. The key to the eye is to gradually layer the colour and blend, blend, blend - until your arm falls off haha!
