Hey BN Beauty Belles! We are proud to introduce another amazing Makeup Artist, Stella Maris of Stella’s Addiction. For her “Get This Look” feature, she will be recreating different makeup looks from local and International acts as well as famous photos to help you recreate the looks you’ve all come to know and love.
For her first feature, we have the fabulous Kelly Rowland in her Kisses Down Low video. If you have seen the video, you know that it is a bevy of makeup inspiration and here, Stella will be recreating one of our favourite looks from the video – the pin-up look.
Featuring a beautifully highlighted face, white water line, winged eyeliner, fab lashes and bold red lips, press play to find out how Stella recreates the look and how you can too.
Unlike the traditional pin-up, Kelly’s sports a blue outer corner and crease as opposed to the usual brown/black. The rest of the look stays true to form; bright red lips, winged liner, lashes and an extended eye lid.
