Jessie J - Brit Awards Launch Inspired Look

Hi Everyone,
I took a bit of a break from blogging, I felt like I had lost my mojo a bit and was leaving a long time between each blog post. I do think this break did me some good though, I'm feeling a lot more inspired and already have a few blog posts lined up, so hopefully the gap between each one will be reduced. 

(click to enlarge image - it's big!)
I actually did this look tonight, I was really excited to finally find some high quality images of Jessie J's makeup from the Brit Awards launch party. I've been wanting to do this ever since I saw her performance, so I didn't hesitate to give it a try. She wore black lipstick for the performance, but I cannot pull a black lip off at all so went for the bright matte red lip she sported on the red carpet. I also bronzed up my cheeks unlike Jessie who had a light contour, this was just personal preference as I'm already really pale I like a bit of colour in my cheeks :)

I realised her dotted liner was actually rhinestones in the close up images and interviews from the night, they really looked nice as they reflected the light. I used leftover black swarovski crystals from 'blinging' my phone a while ago... hehe.
