Lily Collins’ Makeup On ‘Glamour’ — Her Retro Cover Look
Lily’s long locks were transformed into a faux bob for her retro up-do. To get this look, first section the crown of your hair and tease it using a small comb. Pin this section back using bobby pins and spray with hair spray.
Divide the remainder of your hair into two sections, parting it down the middle, to the back of your head. Braid both sides, leaving some room towards your roots. Start with one braid, rolling it upwards towards your roots and use bobby pins to secure the braid under your hair. Do the same with the other braid.
If you have short layers, loosely curl the pieces of remaining hair. Use hair spray to keep this ‘do in place!
Lily’s Bold Makeup — A Daring Red Lip
The focus of Lily’s makeup look are her bold, black lashes. To achieve this look, try falsies Ardell Lashes.
In addition to her lashes, she is wearing a thick layer of black, liquid liner on her top lids, along with a more subtle eyeliner look on the bottom. To get this look, use a pencil liner. For eyeshadow, try a sheer white color similar to MAC’s How To Marry.
For a look similar to Lily’s flawless face, use a Beauty Blender sponge to apply your favorite liquid foundation.
To complete this look, select a retro red lipstick like MAC’s Ruby Woo. The trick to a retro lip look is all in the shape. While applying color to your upper lip, try to create a very defined, bow shape, similar to Lily’s in the cover photo. Use a nude or lip colored liner for extra staying power.
