five minute makeup inspired by: miley cyrus


Love her or hate her, Miley Cyrus has got everyone talking. Her raunchy new look and sound is grabbing headlines all over the world. Whether that's a good thing or not still remains to be seen. But with a #1 single and a hotly anticipated new album, I'd imagine she's not complaining.

I'll admit - I've been a Miley fan since she was on Hannah Montana. While her new image is certainly not something I can totally get on board with, I guess I would still call myself a fan. Which is why when I saw the music video to Wrecking Ball for the first time, I thought more about the song than the fact that she was, well, naked on a wrecking ball.

Another thing that struck me about the video? Her makeup. It was so simple, yet so powerful and striking. I knew the moment that I saw it that I wanted to re-create it. While subtle eyes and a bold lip isn't my go-to look, I couldn't resist. Not only is this makeup bold and striking....but it's super quick and easy!

So, before I go through the steps to creating this five minute makeup, here is my re-created Miley Cyrus Wrecking Ball look:



Products Used:
Rimmel Clean Finish Foundation, Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer, 
Revlon Photo Ready Powder, Blinc Cosmetics Eyebrow Mousse, 
Urban Decay Naked Palette, Hard Candy Fox in a Box Blush, 
Benefit They're Real! Mascara.

Creating this look really is simple....honest! From start to finish it took me about five minutes. Here is how I did it:

I started by going through my normal foundation routine (moisturize, prime, apply foundation, apply concealer, and powder the face). Once that was done, I focused on the eyes. I used a matte eyeshadow just slightly darker than my natural skin colour all over the lid. Then I took a light shimmery shadow and applied that lightly on the brow bone and on the inner corner of my eyes.

Next, came the mascara. Since this was such a natural eye look, it really was all about the lashes. I applied two thick coats of mascara to get the length and thickness this look needs. On the cheeks, I dusted a very natural-looking peachy coloured blush just on the apples.

The real drama of this look comes from the lips! I went for a super bright and bold red lipstick shade. I used a red lip liner around my lips for a little more precision and then simply applied the red lipstick directly onto my lips.

And that was it! Creating this Miley Cyrus makeup look was really easy but it had just the right hint of drama. I definitely encourage you to give it a try!

What do you think of this Miley Cyrus inspired makeup look?

  17. You did a really good job re-creating her look! I think Miley is seriously doing smart things, as much as I dislike her tongue hanging out all over the place, she has everyone talking and that is what keeps you going in the industry. I think she is gorgeous, but I also can't get on board with her new look. I loved her hair long! Have a good night, Shannon!

  18. It's true that Miley Cyrus has everyone talking. I used to watch Hannah Montana when I was small, and this new change is definitely going to be hard for everyone to accept. However, I still appreciate her courage, and the bold style.
    Your recreation of her makeup is just so precise and perfect!
