On account of my full jet black fringe and pasty white skin, my work colleagues tell me I have a look of Jessie J. A small one, obviously. And while it's undoubtedly flattering, I don't see it myself. But seeing as the BRIT awards are just around the corner (less than a month away), I thought I'd have a spot of fun recreating the Price Tag star's look.
I've always been a fan of Jessie's make-up; she tends to do her own thing and doesn't follow those age-old beauty rules (like full on eye make-up should mean neutral lip colours and vice versa), choosing just as bold a colour for her lips as she does for her eyes.
Jessie, who was last year a newcomer at the BRITS, has this year been nominated for not one, not two, but three awards: Best Female, Best Breakthrough and Best Single for Price Tag.
Here's the photos I used for inspiration:
And here's my efforts...
I realise in terms of make-up skill, it's not the best job and I'm looking a little ghostly white...but I'm no pro and I'm sure you get the general idea.
* Illamasqua Cream Foundation (There's no shade name on this one but it's comparable to MAC's palest foundation)
* No 7 Quick Cover Concealer in Extra Fair
* No 7 Amazing Eyes Black Eyeliner
* Lacura Beauty grey/black eyeshadow duo in 'Opal'
*17 Photo Flawless Lashes mascara
* Barry M lip paint in no 144
And while it's not visible in the photos, I thought 17's metallic green nail polish in Sulk was the perfect statement colour.
Did I pull it off?
