Makeup Your Lookalike Collaboration: Ellen Page

1 Aug

ellen page collage 8Hello, all! If you’re new to my blog, welcome! And if you’re not, welcome back! Here’s my part of an amazing collaboration featuring celebrity look-alike-inspired makeup and fashion and stuff going up today, so check out the links at the bottom of this post for everyone’s contributions!

I chose Ellen Page because we’ve got similar features and we appreciate the value of heavy, dark makeup. Also because she’s gorgeous and I love her.

Cue inspirational collage.

ellen page collageWhile I like the bright-eyed winged liner look in the top left, I was really drawn to the dark brown smokey eye look that she sports at nearly every event. I did adjust it to fit my eye shape as my eyes aren’t as deep set as hers, so it doesn’t look exactly the same…buttttt it’s good enough for government work, eh?

Anywho, let’s go ahead with a pictorial! This post is very picture-heavy, so I’ll cut it off here 🙂

1. Fill in your brows however you like, because brows are personal. I chose to copy her straight, dark brows, so they’re a bit more intense than I’d usually go.

2. Blend a bronzer or warm contour color over your lid and along the lower lashline. It’ll warm up the overall look later on 🙂

3. Add a darker matte brown on the lid, in the crease, and along the lower lashline. Keep the center of the lid blank. For authenticity, you can blend the brown toward the nose to simulate deeper-set eyes.

4. Continue layering the brown, blending at you go.

5. Add a shimmery taupe eyeshadow to the center of the lid.

6. Continue to layer brown around the taupe.

7. Add a small amount of black eyeshadow over the brown. If you want to go darker, you can, but I’ve left it at the level that I’m comfortable with.

8. Apply black liner and mascara.

9. Highlight the inner corner with a shimmery beige shadow. Finished!

Ellen is wearing a brown-based pink lipstick in my inspiration pictures, so I chose Sonia Kashuk’s Roseberry for the lips. All products are listed below as per usual!

    Ellen Page is awesome! And I love her when she’s pale and with dark makeup – gorgeous.

    And you do actually look kinda alike ; ) Lovely makeup, and these awesome brows suit you!

      Isn’t she?? Ugh I’m glad we look semi-alike 😀 There aren’t very many partially asian celebrities I can think of, so Ellen Page it was!
