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.
