mark Spokeswoman Lauren Conrad made her mark at the launch of her new fashion line for Kohl’s this week! Celebrity Makeup Artist Amy Nadine spills all her secrets for creating Lauren’s feminine yet edgy look.

How to Get Lauren Conrad’s Dramatic look:

Face

“I started by powdering Lauren’s entire face with mark Matte-nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder in Natural/Buff, and then lightly dusted the apples of her cheeks with her favorite, mark Good Glowing Mosaic Blush in Hush Baby. To add more definition to her cheekbones, I added a contouring layer of mark Bronze Pro Bronzing Powder in Bronze.”

Eyes

“Lauren never strays from her signature winged-out cat eyes, so to add some instant drama, I complimented them with a black ‘smoky under-eye’. Blending is key for this look and edges should be smeared to add depth. I started by lining her eyes with mark Get in Line Waterproof Liquid Liner in Painted Black. Then I used mark Eyemarker Color On Line in Jet a few millimeters past the outside corners of her lower lash lines. I drew a thick line that became thinner as I dragged it inward, stopping 3/4 of the length of her eye. I then smudged it gently with my pinky finger to smoke it out. Next, I took my mark Eyeliner Brush and dipped it in mark I-Mark Custom Eye Shadow in Corset dusting it on top of the line a couple times to make the original line even thicker. Then I coated her lashes with mark Make It Big Lash Plumping Mascara in Raven.”

Lips

“I completed her look by applying mark Dew Drenched Moisturlicious Lip Color in Skinny Dip followed by mark Glow Baby Glow Hook Up Lip Gloss in m.powerment Gold for a glossy, shimmery finish.”

Curls are the must have hairstyle for fall and they’ve been spotted everywhere from soft cascading waves, to halos of curls, powerful amplified shapes, and even loose natural waves circa the 1940s.  Achieve these hot looks and protect your hair color with CurlWave Styling Cream from COLURE True Color Care, $25.00. All of COLURE’s products are free of parabens, sulfates, alcohol, perfumes, dyes and other chemicals that could possibly strip color.

I’ve tried this cream, and I love it. My hair bounces from straight to curly all the time, and usually falls somewhere in between, a big ol’ hot mess. This product helped define my curls, and give them bounce!
