Taylor Momsen Look







This look was inspired by Taylor Momsen's character look for Jenny Humphrey from the show Gossip Girl. She's my favorite character, so I decided to do my take on her makeup, hair, and overall style. In the video I'll show you how to get her look, and include some accessories tips at the end how you can make your everyday look a bit more edgy. I just used accessories that I already had that I felt went well with Jenny's overall look, these aren't the exact things she wears...

Eyes
Illamasqua Enrapture Liquid Metal, Ben Nye Terracotta e/s, MAC Antiqued e/s, Ben Nye Dark Brown e/s, MAC Malt e/s, Ben Nye Toast e/s, Quo Dark Brown eyeliner,

Cheek
Illamasqua Writhe Bronzer, Ben Nye Latté blush

Lips
MAC Media lipstick, MAC Viva Glam I lipstick

Hair
GHD IV Styler in Black, Sebastian Molding Mud

Nails
Essie Tart Deco

  8. Yes! That's a very pretty look. Even for an 'edgy' look it's still got a feminine side with it. And the hats look cute on you.

    You look totally rediculous. Thickened in makeup and so so unnatural...my god I've seen it all now. Have you ever worked in the circus?

    Note how anonymous doesn't have the balls to put a name to the rude comments?
    Simple case of sour grapes...if you don't like it, go away - far far away. No one is forcing you to read the blog or watch the tutorial.

  15. In my opinion the lip colour is not the right one for Jenny/Taylor.
    It is a bit to dark, i think.
    Nevertheless it looky very nice.

  28. This one is so similar to my favourite daytime makeup :) The only difference is that I use more... "red" eyeshadows so it looks, in my opinion, better on my eyes :)
    But this looks so good in you that I'm a little bit jealous :( :P

  29. I love your looks and definately want to try this. is there a sub for Media lipstick since i couldn't find it on the mac website? I love the rock/glam looks you do and your tutorials have helped me out a lot. I have really fair skin also so a lot of the looks you do work really well with my coloring. :)

    I'd really love to do this look, but the products listed seem expensive and It's going to be difficult to search for the dupes. I'm a beginner, and this is one of the first looks I want to pull off. It's also my most favorite from MissChievous.
