Celeb-a-Like – Arielle Kebbel’s Makeup in Icy Blue
ARIELLE KEBBEL has the most piercing brown eyes thanks to her blue-lined lids. Begin by applying your choice of eyeshadow base (like Urban Decay’s Primer Potion) all over your lid, including a thin line on your lower lash line (really, really thin, then smudged with any brush so it isn’t too thick!). Using MAC’s Moon’s Reflection eyeshadow, apply it to the inner third of the lid using the 239. Apply MAC’s Tilt eyeshadow all over the rest of lid with the 239 brush, and then using the 219, apply Tilt along the lower lash line. With the 239, apply MAC’s Flashtrack eyeshadow to the outer portion of the lid and crease. Use the 224 or 222 to smooth out the harsh edge of blue just above the crease. Apply MAC’s Shroom eyeshadow underneath brow and above crease, as the highlight color, with the 239. Blend your highlight and the harsher color together using swirls and soft strokes of the 224. Line both the upper and lower lash lines with a black kohl (such as MAC’s Blacktrack fluidline or Graphblack technakohl). Coat lashes with several brushes of super black mascara to finish.
Kebbel has flawless, matte skin, and it is easy to get the same look by using a matte finish foundation, like MAC’s Studio Fix Fluid or Make Up Forever’s Mat+ Velvet. Both are liquid foundations, which are always my preference for the ultimate polished look. Always begin a foundation routine by cleansing and moisturizing face (and using sunscreen protection!). Dab on bits of foundation to your cheeks, chin, forehead, and nose with a concealer brush like the 194. Spritz a fluffy powder or buffer brush (129, 150, 182) with a mist of water or Fix+, and then blend out the dabs of foundation applied earlier. Dust face lightly with loose powder with the 129 or 150 to set foundation. With a light hand, pick up a touch of MAC’s Well Dressed blush with a fluffy powder brush (129, 150) and tap gently onto apples of cheeks. Using a buffer brush like the 182, move the brush in circular motions to buff the color into cheeks and leave it as a subtle flush.
To get Kebbel’s icy cool lips, try MAC’s Pervette lipstick or Hue lipstick with MAC’s Luminary lustreglass. Part lips as if letting a small “oh” sigh escape, and you’ll be just as sexy as Kebbel.
