One of my favourite makeup artists to follow on Instagram is Fiona Stiles. Some of her celebrity clients include Gabrielle Union, Elizabeth Banks, Kate Beckinsale, Katherine Langford and Lily Collins. You may have seen her incredible Priscilla Presley inspired, lilac pastel look on Lily Collins at the Met Gala earlier this month (which I still plan on trying to recreate). She's such an incredible artist and always seems to try something new and different on her clients. I'm constantly inspired by her work, especially on Lily Collins as we have similar skin tone and hair colour so I figure anything that looks good on her, might work on me too.
When I saw this post of Lily Collins wearing graphic black liner and bright red lips a couple of days before the Met Gala, I knew I'd have to recreate it. Fiona made a reference to Robert Palmer Girls in her post about this look and I can totally see the eighties inspiration for the overall look with the black and red star print sequin one shoulder dress by Saint Laurent and hair slicked back. It's definitely got that Addicted to Love vibe to it which I loved as it's something different to the usual looks we see on Lily Collins, but the whole look was unbelievable on her (Also, I dressed up as a Robert Palmer Girl for Halloween one year.)
I loved how the graphic liner and red lips looked against her fair skin. Her complexion was even and flawless with very little colour other than what looks like a touch of a pale pink blush. I used the bareMinerals BAREPRO Liquid Foundation as it's full coverage and the perfect shade match for my skin. I wanted to wear a full coverage foundation so that the brows, liner and lipstick stood out even more. I could also see what looked like a purple liner on her waterline. I used the closest thing I had which was Glossier Play Colorslide in Critical Mass which is more on the pink side but I thought was such a great small detail in the look Fiona created. I used the L'Oréal Paris Unbelieva'brow Brow Gel as it's the darkest brow product I have and Lily has the best brows and they're quite dark. I used a mixture of two lips products, one of which had to be from Lancôme as Lily is one of the faces of the brand. I used the Matte Shaker in the shade Red'y in 5 along with No7 Brick Red lipstick as the shade in the photo seemed to be more of a brick red, than a blue or orange based red. I used a couple of mate shades from the IT Cosmetics IT Girl Vol. 2 palette just to define my eyes slightly at the socket line.
Hopefully I did the look justice!
