If Snow White was your favorite childhood fairytale heroine, you must be as excited for the premiere of “Mirror Mirror” as we are! We love everything about Snow’s signature look: shiny apple-red lips and dewy skin with perfectly framed brows. If you’re eager to recreate the mythical makeup, keep reading our easy how-to.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
Champagne eye shadow base
Eye shadows in: matte brown, matte dark brown, shimmering white, matte off-white, black
Black liquid liner
Red lip color
START WITH A SHIMMERING BASE
Apply a sparkling champagne base over your lid (we chose Benefit Watt’s up) and blend upward towards your crease. The shimmering hue adds a little luster and staying power to your eye makeup.
SHAPE YOUR BROWS
We love the bold yet soft, rounded shape of Lily Collins’ brows, which give her face a feminine and commanding presence. With a brown brow pencil, (we used Benefit’s Instant Brow Pencil) fill in any sparse areas of your brow bone and create a bold arch to frame your eyes. Blend the product through your hairs with an angled brush.
FRAME YOUR LIDS
Use a matte brown shadow, (we opted for Sultry from TheBalm’s Nude `Tude Palette) and frame your eyes by blending your inner corner and your outer corner below your crease.
With a dark chocolate brown shadow (we used Sleek from TheBalm’s Nude `Tude Palette), use an angled liner brush to sweep a thin line along your lash line. Use the same brush to smudge and blend the color into your outer corner.
Carefully place a pair of flirty lashes over your upper lash line (we used Sugarpill Precious False Lashes). By using lashes that have a gradual length toward the outer edges, you will have more of a doll-like quality to your eyes, much like Lily’s.
After lining your lips with Too Faced Borderline, (a colorless waterproof lip liner that instantly traps and holds lip products) fill in your lips with a true red lip pencil (we used MAC lip pencil in Brick). Snow’s hue is more blue-based, so you want to use a lip pencil that will hold true to that color. Then, use a lip brush to fill your lips in with a juicy crimson lip color (we used Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in NSFW). Make sure to clean up any edges with a concealer!
ADD A SIGNATURE FLUSH TO THE APPLES OF YOUR CHEEKS
Dust a pink blush to the apples of your cheeks (we opted for MAC Blush Ombré in Ripe Peach). You want a bright and youthful color that will give you a romantic flush while maintaining that porcelain skin tone. Then, highlight above your cheekbones for a dewy look (we chose Benefit’s Watts Up).
Now you’re ready for Prince Charming to wake you with true love’s kiss!
