As you probably know, Melinda and I consider Lauren Conrad to be one of our style icons. We absolutely love her look – whether it’s polished and ladylike, or laid back California beach girl. In fact, we featured Lauren in our second ever Celebrity Chic post.
Lauren is a self-made star. She made her TV debut as a high school student in the MTV reality series Laguna Beach, followed by her own spin-off series called The Hills. Lauren left the show on a high and went on to create The Beauty Department (a website otherwise known as girly heaven), write several fiction novels as well as style and beauty books, and design her own clothing lines which includes the gorgeous label, Paper Crown.
And that’s why today’s Chicspiration is Lauren Conrad!
Lauren is the queen of liquid eyeliner. You could call it her signature look, as she tends to stick to one shade of eyeshadow and a slick of liquid eyeliner. She also usually has a subtle flush of colour on her cheeks and finishes with a beautiful lip colour.
To recreate this particular look, choose a lovely shimmery gold coloured eyeshadow and blend over the lid. Line the upper eyelid with a liquid eyeliner, ficking out slightly at the edge of each eye. Take your favourite mascara and give your lashes at least 2 coats for definition and pop. Swirl a pinky peach cream or powder blush on the apples of your cheeks. Finally, finish up with a nude pink lipstick or lipgloss and you are ready for your closeup!
