Beauty inspo doesn’t come much more equal parts depressing and perfectly packaged than a Victoria’s Secret model… The thing is though, when it comes to trying to emulate one fraction of their look, the guidance is a bit tricky. See, the answer from the beauties often goes a little something like ‘Oh, I just wash my face every night and drink lemon water in the morning…’ Yeah ok, cool, we’ll just get right on that, and try to rearrange our genetic makeup while we’re at it. For models, their ‘done’ face is done by other people – the world’s best makeup artists, in fact. Unless we’re talking about Natasha Poly. Yes, she won the lottery in looks – without a scrap of makeup, girlfriend is gorgeous. But, she’s also a-mazing at doing makeup. Yep, on her own, just like the rest of us do.
She does her own makeup for the Met Gala (see, we aren’t joking. Here’s her 2015 effort…)
And has her own hashtag used by herself and fans #NPolyMakeup. Yesterday, she posted a step by step guide, and products she used, to achieving the perfect base and flicked liner eye we’ve ever seen. So, here, enjoy. We love it, and her.
