Moonrise Kingdom’s “Suzy Bishop” Inspired Look


After careful analysis and heated debate (with myself of course), I decided that Sarah IS Suzy Bishop from Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom. End of story. Don’t talk to me about. Just kidding do. Let’s have a discussion about it.

So I kind of took it upon myself to change the look up a little bit, but the essence of the look is still there. This really really looks great if you have blue eyes, which Sarah stole from a willing crack addict on the street and inserted into her own eyesockets to achieve. The blue eyeshadow that I use is much darker than Suzy’s actual teal eyeshadow, but you make do with what you have if you are lazy and unmotivated like me. #YOLO


1. Apart from applying Elf Mineral Infused Primer to Sarah’s face, I left the skin bare for a moment and went straight to the eyes to avoid eyeshadow fallout ruining a perfect base.

2. With my Elf Flat Eyeshadow brush I took Ben Nye’s FX Creme Eyeshow in Sapphire Blue and applied it to Sarah’s eyelids, not going beyond the socket.

3. Then with a clean Eyeshadow Brush I took my Stila Rockin’ in Rio Palette and applied iPanema (electric blue) over the cremeshadow and then took Elf’sBlending Brush to blend out the edges. I also took a small angeled brush and applied the color on her lower lashline as well.

4. Using Elf’s Liquid Eyeliner in Black, I painted a thin line close to the upperlash lashline and then flicked out to create a tiny cateye.

5. I put Shimmer Strip’s Custom Eye Enhancing Eyeliner in Blue on the waterline and into the inner corner of the eye.

Adele Inspired Look


I managed to convince my young and quite striking friend/aspiring actress Sarah to assume the role of Adele for my blog’s benefit. It’s definately more of an adapted look that takes inspiration from Adele’s signature cat-eye and vintage black dresses that she normally sports on the red carpet. I think she has become the icon not only in music, but in fashion. You go, Adele. You go…

Here is a step-by-step guide including products used to create this look:

1. I moisturized with Cerave then applied Revlon Photoready Color Correcting Primer evenly

2. Using Elf Mineral Foundation Brush I applied Clinique Even Better Foundation in Ivory evenly to Sarah’s face and blended down her neck


3. I combed through the brows using Elf’s Brow Brush and applied the third eyeshadow (taupey brown) in the Loreal Neutral Palette with Elf Angeled Brush to fill in her brows


4. Using the Sonia Kashuk Concealer Palette I covered any blemishes, blending out with a clean makeup sponge and then applied the translucent powder in the palette to set using my Elf Blending Brush

5. I applied the first eyeshadow (cream colored) in the Loreal Neutral Palette all over the lid and up to the browbone using EcoTools Flat Eyeshadow Brush


6. Using an EcoTools Crease Brush I applied the fourth eyeshadow (darkest brown) from the Loreal Neutral Palette underneath the socket bone and countered the socket, blending upwards and out towards the brow bone. I took the same shadow and using a small pencil brush, applied it to the lower lash line.


7. Using Maybelline Gel Liner in Black and any small eyeliner brush I applied a thick line to the top lash line and then winged out to the end to create a cat-eye effect. Then I went over this line again with Elf’s Liquid Eyeliner in Black to intesify the line.


8. After curling her lashses, I applied two coats of Too Faced Size Queen Mascara to both the top and bottom lashes


9. I applied Mac Studiofinish Concealer in NW 20 underneath the eye with my finger to heat the product. Then with the Elf Large Fluffy Face Brush, I applied Revlon’s Stay Matte Powder in Translucent all over the face

10. Using Elf’s Contour Brush, I countered applied Elf’s Mineral Blush in Pink Passion to the apples of the cheek and blended upwards towards the hairline


11. Using Elf’s Blending Brush I applied Covergirl Eyeshadow in Champagne to the tops of the cheekbones for a nice highlight


12. Finally I applied Clinique Lipstick in Tender Heart to the lips to complete the look!
