New Contest! 5 Winners Will Win A Emeli Sande Get The Look Prize Pack from Rimmel London!

Jocelyn and I were lucky enough to see Emeli Sande in her first concert in Portland, OR. Neither Jocelyn or I were very familiar with Emeli before the concert, we just knew she was huge in the UK. But before she finished her first song, we were both were in awe of Emeli’s talent.

When she started to sing it was obvious why she had garnered such a following in the UK. Backed by a four-piece band, Emeli sounded flawless from her soulful “Heaven,”to her  upbeat numbers, “Breaking The Law” and rousing “Next To Me,”.  It was definitely one of those concerts you leave in awe knowing you saw something special. I have had Emeli playing on Spotify since the concert, I am hooked.

We were lucky enough to go backstage after the show and meet Emeli, this girl is gorgeous and so sweet.I loved her look from flawless skin to her smokey eyes. Here is how to get her look with Rimmel London.

Then follow with Soft Kohl Eye Pencil by  and smudge to create a thick smokey line. Coat your eyelashes with two coats of Scandal Eyes Show Off Mascara for a dark dramatic look. Finally top off you look with Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in Pink Blush.
