Did you enjoy the premier of the Carrie Diaries? I know I did! I’m in love with the 80s! I’ve dedicated today’s beauty blog to the young Carrie Bradshaw.
Carrie’s look is very simple … very elegant. If you want to mimic her look, you’ll need to follow a few steps.
First, Carrie has a very light foundation on … it’s not heavy or cake-y, just a simple mineral powder will work wonders.
Carrie’s eye makeup requires the most time for completing the look. You’ll need three different neutral browns including a light brown, medium brown and a soft white. To get her look, apply the light brown all over your eyelid. Then, get the medium brown shadow and line your crease and the outer corner of your eye … you’ll make a long 7 figure. The white eye shadow should be applied to the crease of your brow bone and the inner corner of your eye. Add some light brown eyeliner to the top and bottom and some mascara and you’re done with the eyes!
Since Carrie’s eyes are so neutral, she can afford some playful lips! Apply a medium to dark pink lip liner followed by an orangey-pink lipstick and you’re set!
The final touch they apply is her blush. In different pictures it will vary from a light pink to a light brownish-pink blush. Wear whatever you’re more comfortable with.
Have fun and embrace your inner Carrie!
