Beauty Trendsetter: Emily Blunt

No matter what her hair colour, Emily nails her makeup every time. From lilac lids to gilded lips to peacock lids (oh my!) There is no fear when it comes to playing with colour.  The key to Emily's makeup is a flawless complexion paired with modern textures on her eyes, lips and cheeks.
In the first look, Emily is working a sandy-gold toned look from lids to lips. These warm champagne tones suit everyone, and make the eyes look large and lifted. Add a creamy pencil to the waterline will make eyes look even bigger.

Give your lashes a good curl and a volumizing black mascara.  Cheeks are the same vein of colour, sans the sparkle. A cream/liquid blush will keep the skin looking dewy and fresh. A pinky-nude lip liner will add definition and enhance the natural lip shape. A shimmering champagne gloss finishes the look.

*Pro Tip: Feather the lip liner just on the outside rim of your natural lip line and softly blend. Keep colour more concentrated at the outer corners of the lips, and the centre with very little- this trick helps lips look their fullest.
