Hi! Happy to help you out! Her makeup is fairly simple so here's a breakdown and the photos I used as reference for when I was building this costume.






As you can see, she has very natural makeup. The majority of the focus is on the eyes. I used a black pencil liner (Wet N Wild Baby Got Black to be specific) and tight lined all around the eye and then smudged it out. I also used a neutral color on the lid and a light brown to accent the crease slightly. The colors I used are in the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani palette, "Stark" on the lid and "Zone" in the crease.

I used Wet N Wild cream contour to give slight accent to the cheekbones and then added a light peach colored blush top top of it. I believe I used a Milani baked blush, possibly "Luminoso" but not positive on the color.

The brows are angled at the ends of the lids and very small so just use a small pencil brush or similar to add powder/pomade to give the shape needed. For lips I used Lipstick Queen lipstick in "Saint Rust".


That was my preliminary attempt and then with practice, got better at recreating it.

Hope this helps!
