How To Look Hot Like Lucy Mecklenburgh!

Here is a make-up/hair look inspired by Lucy Mecklenburgh from The Only Way is Essex.  I think she is naturally very pretty and has an amazing figure.  She is also very glamorous in the way she dresses and does her make-up so this look is more for night time wear or the more daring of you!

First I prepped my skin with a pore minimiser from the Body Shop.  Then I went in with MAC studio sculpt foundation in NW30 mixed with Benefit you rebel all over my face.  I then took Chanel universal bronzer and buffed that all over my face for a real bronzed look.  Lucy always has a fab tan so it’s important to really bronze up here.  Then I took Rimmel stay matte powder in translucent and dusted that all over the skin.  I then took my MAC prolong wear concealer in NW20 and patted that under my eyes.  This is a great full coverage concealer and Lucy’s skin always look perfectly even so it’s good to get a full coverage concealer and foundation for this look.

I then took my Chanel universal bronzer and put that along my contour.  I went over it with MAC studio powder in NW40 and also put some along my forehead and down my nose.  Then I took my eyebrow pencil by Barbara Daly in brown and filled in my eyebrows, then set them with MUA’s brow gel.

For my eyes I used a purple shade by MAC on my lid and then a black shade under my lower lashes.  I lined my waterline with a black kohl line and smoked out the lower lash with a pencil brush.  Lucy quite often has a bold smokey eye so you can use any colours you want to create this dark look.  I thought I would go for a more purplely smokey eye.  I then used Barry M liquid eyeliner on my top lid and winged it out slightly.  Then I used lashings of Estee Lauder sumptuous extreme mascara.  Lucy normally always wears fake eyelashes too so you could apply a pair on if you wanted.  I haven’t because I find they don’t really suit me and I have naturally quite long eyelashes anyway.

Then for my lips I also went for quite a bold colour which I wouldn’t normally do if I was doing a bold eye but I know Lucy normally does so I went for impassioned by MAC which is a bright pink.

Finally I added some highlighter by The Balm in the inner corner of my eyes, along my brow bone, cheek bone and cupids bow.  I also added a little in the centre of my eye lid just to give a little shimmer as the colours I used were quite matte.

Then for the hair I curled it using my Remington Pearl wand which I absolutely love.  It’s so easy to use and you can create different kinds of curls on it.  I’ve gone for quite a tight curl as I have tried to re-create a look of Lucy’s where she has her short hair.  I have also sprayed a bit of VO5’s salt spray on it to fluff it up and make it big.  Lucy is never without her big hair!

So I hoped you liked this look and enjoy re-creating it yourself.

Love Lauren xx
