Doll- inspired make up

 For Irish ladies it's nice to embrace a trend that enhances our cailin-snowy appeal. I saw a beautiful girl the other day strolling down the street in a white mini dress with long shiny red hair and doll like make up, which is on every catwalk especially Versace and Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2012 and therefore in every magazine.
I'm talking about a fusion of Katy Perry meets a porcelain doll rather than your standard malibu Barbie make up application.

I attempted this look myself, for daytime and night time using a range of products listed below....

 Katy Perry eyelashes - Apply lashes when foundation has been applied and sealed.  Seal using translucent powder applied in gentle circular motions to create a matte finish. Use dashings of mascara to blend your eyelashes with your false strip lashes. Do not trim the length but the width if the lashes are too long for your eye bed.

 Mac Pro Longwear foundation - colour NC15 - also with SPF 10 to help protect your skin from harmful UV rays

Brown eyebrow pencil to enhance the colour and shape of the brow, if eyebrows are already dark clear mascara would suffice.

Clinique is the best in my opinion

 Use white eyeliner and white eye shadow on your eyelids to make your eyes look larger and to exaggerate the doll- like look. Bring it right into the corner of your eye.

This double ended pencil is my favourite as you can use the black pencil underneath your bottom lash line to frame the eye.

 Use black liquid eyeliner above your fake eyelashes and flick out at the end in a gentle motion - exaggerate by Rimmel is the most long lasting & easy to apply -

Outline your lips using Barry M pink lipliner and use the fuchsia lipstick or pink mac lipglass to complete the look.

Alas you are girlified for a coffee date with your friends or a night out!
