This week`s challenge was to come up with a look by a celebrity that inspires us. This was hard. I mean, every celebrity inspires me more or less. I blame J Lo for my highlighter collection. But one celeb I was always compared to and I somehow relate to is Scarlett Johansson. I loved her since I saw one of her first movies,`` An American Rhapsody``, (story very similar to my life) all the way to her portraying the Black Widow in Iron Man and The Avengers. You know... I have a soft spot for Marvel and action heroes. There is just something about Scarlett, the roles she played in, the way she acts, her natural beauty... I love her.
So here is my take on her sort of signature look: soft eyes, glowy, flushed cheeks and juicy plump lips.
I have always had a soft spot for Scarlett Johansson.
I find her beauty look quite natural and down to earth, yet she is
always so polished and has an effortless sort of sex appeal.
This is a look I wear on a daily basis, which has a lot of elements
inspired from Scarlett’s signatures look. I used a cat-eye liner to
define eyes and get that flirty feline look, while keeping the rest of
the shadow colours warm and soft. I applied a wash of peachy eyeshadow
all over the lid and defined the crease with it and used a shimmery
champagne colour on the brow bone and the inner corner.
Scarlett usually plays up her complexion and her lips and that’s
exactly what I did. After using a light, natural looking foundation, I
contoured with a matte bronzer to help emphasize my cheekbones. Next, I
used a shimmery gold bronzer on the points of the face where sun
naturally hits. The key is to use a very golden bronzer and be very
light handed, I wanted to add a touch of bronze and keep it natural,
especially since I am quite pale. On the cheeks I usually use a
peachy-coral blush mixed with a glowy one (think M.A.C Mineralizing
Skinfinish) and then I added a highlighter on top. This gives me those
chiseled, glowing Scarlett Johansson cheeks.
To get a natural glossy wash of colour on my lips, I mixed a coral
liptar with a pink lip butter. Scarlett always has juicy, glossy lips
with just a hint of colour.
