This makeup look is inspired by Carly Rae Jepsen from her music video "This Kiss". Her makeup artist Desirae Cherman created two looks for the music video.
Scene 1 — The Rock Star: "The performance scene is an underground-club kind of a vibe: dark, smoky flashes of light," Cherman explained. "It created a lot of cool shadows and highlights. I wanted to do the same with Carly's makeup so her features would really pop." The first look was inspired by Pat Benatar's classic smoky eye, which was paired with a dark red lipstick. Cherman recommends a bold lip color as every woman's go-to for after five events. And you can make the look last all night by adding loose powder after lip liner. Then, apply your bright lipstick, blot once, and clean any smudges with concealer.Scene 2 — Girls' Night Out: To stage a casual night out with girlfriends, Cherman created a cool cat eye. "One of my favorite looks to do with bangs is a nice, strong winged eyeliner," she explained. "It instantly lifts your eye, defines the shape, and makes them pop out." If you have bangs, Cherman recommends skipping makeup on the forehead altogether. That way, your fringe won't end up greasy after a long night spent on the dance floor.
My look was obviously inspired by the second look, although I thickened up the black eyeliner a bit because I just liked how it looks. Here are some screenshots from the video, although I mainly went off the description from Cherman, as the makeup is a bit hard to see.
