Imitating Alexa

One of my favourite female celebrities in terms of style is the Chunginator. Her hair, ugh don't even get me started & her clothes are always so nice. Obviously her makeup is also gorgeous, and when flicking through Glamour recently I saw this petite article on her makeup, I ripped it out & happily saw I have & use some of the same products :) Some favourite bits mentioned include...

 - Base; Alexa, like many, is a fan of the Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser. A sheerer base is the key to having glowy 'no makeup makeup' skin. It looks a little bit French I think, and a very classic look. 

- Lips - Oh yes, Lady Danger is featured here again... I'm unapologetic. Lady Danger is basically the best orange-red lipstick you will ever find. It brightens up your face and is such a fun and flattering colour to wear. If it's good enough for Alexa...

- Eyeliner; Alexa is obviously known for her trademark cat eye flick. In her eyeko collection she has an eyeliner, but any black eyeliner would do really. At the moment I am loving MAC blacktrack gel eyeliner... a post is due soon?

 - Lack of bronzer; I can get behind a lack of bronzer. As someone who is naturally pale, bronzers often look odd on me and I would rather just embrace the paleness. I am never going to be naturally bronzed and glowing, so I think I should just stick to enhancing what I have and not making my face look dirty.  

- Nails; pastels. That is all. 

Do you have any beauty idols?



  1. Alexa is one of my favourites as well and this post was actually really lovely and new. I hope to see more like these in the future!

  2. Loved this style of post! You should do more with other celebs! I agree Alexa has just got it all, the hair, the clothes and the makeup! If only I was good at getting that cat eye look!
