I have absolute envy when it comes to star’s and their beach style waves. Even though I’m sitting now in a messy bun (aka: gym hair) I can’t wait to wash it and try to replicate some of these looks for the millionth time. I wish I knew how they got them so smooth and shiny.

The first time I looked into what Comic Con in San Diego was, I was frightened. I had only found pictures of middle aged men and women dressed as their favorite characters and super heros. While I don’t see anything wrong with expressing yourself, it still scared me.
Since then Comic Con has evolved into a mainstream event where people like my brother (who dresses like a Star Wars Jedi whenever he can) and people like myself can blend. This past week many A-list stars have descended upon Comic Con dressed up and down. These are just a few of my favorite looks from stars such as Anna Kendrick, Maggie Q, Angelina Jolie, Vanessa Hudgens, Blake Lively, and Eva Mendes.
From seeing all of these beautiful girls in their made up state, it inspired me to try to somewhat replicate all of these looks. The only thing they have in common is a pretty palate, and a smoky eye.
I decided to try and replicate Kristen Stewart’s the most. She looked stunning at this particular event, and her hair was to die for too! I started by washing and moisturizing my face with Murad pomegranate, and then followed with Smashbox photo finish. I then covered any blemishes with my Smashbox concealer, and then used Bare Minerals foundation. Since it’s summer and I sweat off most of my makeup quickly powder works better for me. If you’re a liquid foundation kind of girl, I will suggest using a Mac foundation, or the Dior airbrush foundation. I then used Nars blush in Orgasm. I have been using that blush for years and it is the most flattering, and works on almost every skin type!
Before starting on your eyes use a eyelid primer. I like the ones from Bare Minerals, Too Faced, and Clinique. I then used a darker pink from Jane that I’ve had far too long, I used Too Faced eye shadow in a very pretty gold for the crease. DuWop makes a good serum to use and mix with an eye shadow to make the black liner I used. I then used Clinique high impact curling mascara, and Bare Minerals Buxom lash mascara to emphasize my lashes. I always end with the Buxom lash because it is a rubber brush and seperates my lashes so I don’t have to use an eyelash comb.
I did this in under 5 minutes, so it isn’t very good or blended well. Blending is a very important part of the smoky eye. I like to use foam applicators or q-tips if I’m desperate.
And presenting the finished product!
