If you, like many others, have been watching the hit Netflix show ‘Emily in Paris,’ you’ve probably noticed that Emily Cooper (played by Lily Collins) has a signature look. From her effortless makeup style to her casually chic wardrobe, Emily is the epitome of French je ne sais quoi. But achieving Emily’s signature look isn’t as hard as it seems! In this blog post, we’ll provide step-by-step instructions on how to achieve Emily’s effortless makeup style.
How to Achieve Emily Cooper’s Signature Look from ‘Emily in Paris’
Emily in Paris has been a favorite show of many since it hit Netflix last year. One of the stars of the show, Lily Collins, plays the role of Emily Cooper. Her look is classic and sophisticated, which makes it easy to recreate with the right makeup products. Here’s how you can achieve her signature look.
Step 1: Start with a Clean Base
The first step in achieving Emily’s signature look is creating a clean base. Begin by washing your face with a gentle cleanser and then moisturizing with an oil-free face lotion. Let your skin soak up the moisture for 5 minutes before moving onto the next step. This will help give your skin a natural glow that looks beautiful without makeup.
Step 2: Apply Concealer and Foundation
Now it’s time to apply concealer and foundation. To get that perfect French girl glow, opt for a light-weight foundation that provides medium coverage. When applying the foundation, use small strokes and blend outwards from the center of the face to the edges of your hairline. For more coverage in specific areas such as blemishes or dark circles, apply concealer directly to those areas only with either your fingers or a brush. Especially if you plan on not wearing powder after applying foundation, be sure to blend both products into each other seamlessly so there are no visible lines or streaks on your face.
Step 3: Add Color With Blush and Bronzer
Next, add color by applying blush and bronzer to key areas of your face such as your cheekbones and forehead. For blush, opt for a cream blush formula applied directly onto the apples of your cheeks for a natural flush of color – this will also help set any cream products you’ve applied before it such as concealer or foundation! To add warmth to your cheeks and jawline use matte bronzer starting at the hollows of your cheeks near where you applied blush and blending outward towards your hairline. Finish off this step by adding highlighter on top of where you applied bronzer for extra dimension on these areas; if desired you can also highlight above the brow bone but make sure not to overdo it!
Step 4: Finish with Eyes and Lips
To complete Emily’s signature look, you want to make your eyes and lips pop. Start by applying a light brown eyeshadow to the lid and crease of your eye. Blend outwards until you get a nice, subtle smoky eye. For your eyeliner, opt for a black liquid liner and draw a thin line along the base of your lash line; this will help open up your eyes and make them appear larger. Then lightly smudge black eyeliner along your bottom lash line and add two coats of mascara to accentuate your lashes.
Finally, for your lips, apply a dark red lipstick with a matte finish. To keep the look subtle, use your finger to lightly dab the lipstick onto your lips and blend it outwards until you get a soft gradient look.
