Love Lily Collins‘ real-life Snow White signature brows and red lips? Blogger Shai Lagarde shows you how to recreate Lily’s makeup look in 9 easy steps.

Lily Collins

Actress Lily Collins can easily be considered one of the fairest of them all. With porcelain skin, red lips and dark hair, she’s a real-life Snow White—don’t even get me started on those #browsonfleek that perfectly frame her face! Loving her classic old-Hollywood beauty?

Here's how you can recreate Lily Collins' makeup look in 9 easy steps. Her makeup look is all about her signature strong eyebrows, darkly outlined shimmery eyes, flushed cheeks, and red lips. For this tutorial, I chose peach and berry hues to suit most Filipina skin tones. Let's get started! 

Step 1: Prep, prime, cover, conceal

After cleansing and moisturizing, apply your base makeup as usual. In case you don't have a "usual," mine involves using a gel-based primer, tinted moisturizing base, liquid foundation, and spot concealer.

Step 2: Contour and enhance angles

Lily Collins has the nice cheekbones and angular face for this makeup look. In lieu of contouring powder, I enhance my angles by using a darker shade of liquid foundation and brush on a darker shade of powder foundation to set.

Step 3: Draw Lily Collins eyebrows

Few are genetically blessed with thick and shapely Lily Collins eyebrows, but that's what eyebrow pencils are for! I thicken my thin and sparse arches by drawing the outline, filling it in, combing with a spool, and setting with mascara.

Step 4: Commit to the eyebrows

No, seriously. There are two steps dedicated to natural-looking bushy eyebrows because it's not a Lily Collins makeup look without them! I go a little extra by literally drawing strands of hair here and there with an ultra-thin eyeliner.

Step 5: Make the eyelids shimmer

Lily Collins seems to favor shining, shimmering, splendid eyeshadows. For this particular look, her eyelids are a peachy pink sheen with just a tinge of purple at the outer corners. I blended cream and powder eyeshadow to achieve this.

Step 6: Commit to the shimmer

Lily Collins' makeup look is strong and dramatic—and that really takes commitment! Don't be afraid to add an additional coat or two of shimmery eyeshadow. Dot the inner corners with metallic white or silver to brighten up the eyes.

Step 7: Darkly outline eyes

Strong Lily Collins eyebrows go hand in hand with darkly outlined eyes. Line the lower lids with a similar dark brown shade as the eyebrows. Curl lashes and put on a coat of mascara, then apply false lashes. Top off with black eyeliner.

Step 8: Blush and highlight

To achieve Lily Collins' flushed cheeks, I mixed cream and powder blushes in pink and peach matching the eyeshadows. And to get that dewy fresh-faced look, swipe on highlighter on areas where the light would hit your face.

Step 9: Get two-tone lips

The second thing to eyebrows that come to people's minds when talking about Lily Collins' makeup look? Her luscious lippies! To create more depth, I used a berry shade in the middle and lined my lips with a slightly redder hue.
