Get The Look: Miranda Kerr
Published 30/07/2010 | 16:22
Teaming girl next door with golden goddess, the world has suddenly woken up to Miranda Kerr. Her simple look is all about fresh, natural beauty.
Miranda's secret is that she allows her natural features to shine and doesn't use make-up to hide or distort. It is a look that works just as well for day as it does for warm summer evenings,.
Plump natural lips, warm lively eyes and acres of soft, brown, tumbling hair make it clear why she is set to bloom as Mrs Bloom.
Miranda's base is barely there so a tinted moisturiser that is very close to your skin's natural colouring should get the desired effect.
You Rebel by Benefit is a good call to even out skintone without being too heavy or, if you don't have a tinted moisturiser to hand, mixing a couple of drops of your usual foundation with your normal moisturiser will work just as well.
Given Miranda's simple country roots, it's no wonder she manages to work a natural glow so well. Those of us blessed with paler skin might stick to a light dusting of bronzer across the forehead and nose and a swirl of blusher, like Prestige Fresh Glow Baked Mineral Blush, across the apples of the cheeks.
Miranda keeps her eyes looking nice and bright by keeping her eyeshadow neutral. A nude shadow with a slight shimmer like MAC's Poof should be enough for the lids and a slick of black liner on the upper lid and white liner on the lower lid will define and brighten the look. A sweep of mascara like High Impact by Clinique in Brightening Black on both the upper and lower lash lines will help define the eyes while adding just the required amount of drama.
As a final touch Miranda's lips are kept nice and natural, so a nude pink lipstick like Cruising by Nars will work a treat for this. If it's plumper lips you need, try a lip inflating gloss like NYC's Lippin Large in Strawberry Mousse. It does plump, it is natural, and it should give you a pout good enough for even Orlando's pucker.
