Natural Mauve

I love the neutral brownish mauve look that Ariana Grande usually wears and it seems to be her staple. When I saw her video for Everyday (which is probably the most low budget video ever), I couldn't help but watch her makeup. Mauve is usually more reserved for fall time and to me it looks cool toned, but I still wanted to make an inspired look by that video. Turns out mauve is quite a neutral shade that works on cooler and warmer skin tones. It's a very natural look with that mauve haze to it.

I started my eye makeup with eyeshadow primer and I set it with beige matte color. For the crease I first used a very light matte warm brown. Then I used slightly darker and cooler matte brown. On the lid I used a mixture of light mauve and an even lighter lavender shade. This eye look is all about matte shades that give you that subtle mauve haze.

I drew winged black liner that Ariana also seems to wear often. Then I applied light matte beige in the inner corners to slightly brighten them up. On the bottom lash line I used the same browns and mauves. I also applied mascara and half lashes that wing out at the ends. With these lashes you'll add a bit of volume, but it will still be very natural and it will accentuate winged liner shape.

Ariana seems to prefer a more matte looking skin, so I used slightly higher coverage foundation and powdered it down. I also used a bit of very light bronzer to warm up my skin tone. For highlighter I used light powder with subtle sheen. Nothing too glowy for this look. I used dirty mauve blush to compliment the rest of the makeup. 

Her lips always look browner on the outside and more mauve pink on the inner part. So I mixed mauve brown shade with a light mauve shade on top. I also used nude lip liner underneath to slightly overdraw my lip line. I rounded out my Cupid's bow, because she usually does the same.

Natural light was running out of my room, so I didn't have much time to recreate her two buns, but I tried my best. It looked like she had french braids and then put them into two buns. I obviously don't have hair extensions and my hair has no volume, so I did my best with what I have.
