Get the Look: Ke$ha in Teen Vogue

Fiona StilesComment

I got to work with Ke$ha a few months ago for the new music issue of Teen Vogue (the shoot was the day after the Grammy's).  I was so enchanted by her honesty, her intelligence and wicked sense of humor.  Even though she is a huge lover of glitter, I managed to just get her into a nice soft smokey eye and a nude lip.....sans glitter, although I was armed to the teeth with heaps of the sparkly stuff just in case!  Here's a breakdown of the look:

I love love LOVE strong bushy brow and Ke$ha has great brows.  I brushed them up so they had a great 80's kind of feeling.  It adds a subtle and effortless strength to a look.

You can't see it in the photo, but she has these great freckles.... so adorable, I love freckles.... so I kept the foundation really light, and just focused on the eyes.  She has amazing, sleepy, sexy eyes that are great to play up.  I went with a smokey grey eye with black liner and heaps of mascara and a nude matte lip.  I kept the black liner tight to the lashes for a little rock and roll drama.  Here's my list of products:
