Miss Florence Welch (c. 2011)
This week's spotlight is dedicated to my sister Genny, who has a major crush on this fiery dame. What I love about her makeup, hair, nails, and the photo in general is how every colour compliments each other. Now that is not necessary in all photos, but in this case it really makes her beauty stand out.
The Florence + The Machine star is definitely known for her red locks, and Waterhouse-esque beauty. Even though this photo shows an edgier side of the singer, you can still see her classic elegance shine through.
Her fair skin has no shine or blush. If you're looking to recreate her look, start off with a light foundation or tinted moisturizer. Make sure it's not too dark or else you'll be a tanned Flo wannabe! After that you can apply a loose finishing powder, but I would generally put that on in the end, in case any mishaps occur with the rest of the makeup. Make Up For Ever's HD Microfinish Powder works on all skin tones and is great for getting that picture perfect touch.
Her makeup is so simple and easy to recreate. Her eyes have a very light layer of greyish-brownish-mauve shadow on the top lid, black mascara on the top and bottom lashes, and a beautiful olive-gold liner on the bottom. Easy as that. Don't be overzealous with the shadow or it will come out too dark.
Try: Stila eyeshadow in Rain, Tarte Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara and MAC Technakohl Liner in Uniform.
Next is her beautiful berry pout. For this particular look, I would use a magenta or dark fuchsia lip liner. After lining (carefully) your lips with the pencil, smooch your lips together to rub it in, or do it evenly with your finger, to blend in the lip colour.
