As New Year's Eve approaches, we're on the lookout for the best beauty inspiration! While some like to focus on the eyes, others like Shay Mitchell rely on a bold pout to set the makeup mood. Attending the Jingle Ball in New York City on December 11, the Pretty Little Liars star caught our eye and we simply couldn't wait to recreate her look...
Shay loves a gorgeous matte complexion, so start by unifying your skin tone with a longwear foundation. Next, use an angled contour brush to sculpt those cheekbones! Sweep a dark shimmery bronzer into the hollows of your cheeks, before applying a champagne highlighting powder to the highest points of your cheekbones, the arches of your brows, and the bridge of your nose. Blend well with a clean brush or sponge for that flawless finish.
With such a bold lip color, your eye makeup should be light but defined. Create the appearance of thicker lashes with a sweep of black liquid liner along the top lash lines. Then add length with the help of Superstar mascara, zig zagging the comb between your lashes for perfect separation. A white eyeliner pencil along the lower waterlines will help your eyes appear bigger.
A bold lip color can be hard to pull off, so make sure you do it right! Start by lining your lips with a nude lip liner to prevent feathering and create a base for your color. Then carefully apply your black cherry lipstick with the help of a lip brush, which offers more control and precision. To get the same shiny finish as Shay, go over your lipstick with a clear gloss.
