I am quite a big fan of Marina and The Diamonds, so after watching her latest video and seeing her almost doll-like make up, I was inspired to have a go at it myself and put my own twist on it.

I based the look on these two pictures, it’s all about the heavy eyebrows, the champagne/brownΒ eye shadowΒ duo, the bold eyelashes with the little heart under the left eye, and the baby pink blusher/lip colour. I was slightly hesitant about filling in my eyebrows as I’m trying to grow them at the moment so they aren’t looking their best! I think it turned out ok though, and overall I’m fairly pleased with the result!

These are the products I used to create my look:
