Many people change over the years, and celebrities are no exception. Miley Cyrus, America’s sweet, innocent pop star turned daring wild child, flaunts her nude figure in her music video for “Wrecking Ball,” and has consequently drawn eyes and gotten endless attention for her presence both on and off stage. Here at Makeup Ideas Mag we’ll look at the bold 2013 Miley Cyrus makeup look.
Miley Cyrus 2013 makeup has definitely evolved since she shed the Hannah Montana persona, and legions of fans wish to follow in her footsteps and make some daring moves in trying the look out for themselves. Today we focus not on her revealing figure, but the makeup she wears in the video, giving anyone the chance to try this bold look!
Miley doesn’t have too much going on in the lids, but they aren’t left completely bare. At most, a thin layer of gold eye shadow can be gently swept across the lid to give an inconspicuous glow. Simple eyeliner and mascara (with the help of trusty false lashes) will do nicely to get the desired look. If you aren’t the falsies sort or simply don’t have any laying around, using two coats of one or two different types of mascara will achieve a similar effect. Use a pencil liner about two shades lighter than your normal hair color to fill in the eyebrows (careful with this one- it can be easily overdone!). Remember; Miley keeps it natural, so follow the natural arc of your brow and stop when the tip is diagonal from the end of your eye.
Unlike her eyes, the lips are key in Miley’s look, therefore getting a bold stroke of red hued lipstick that makes her stand out in a crowd. She is an active fan of dramatic, eye-popping color that adds some dimension and really spices things up- similar to her dauntless personality. Whether it’s for a night out with the girls or taking the stage by storm, she wears her colors loud and proud! Any shade of red will do to mimic her own- just find the shade that works for you and rock it!
Thankfully, you don’t need a degree in Cosmetology to be able to get the same complexion as we see in the Wrecking Ball music video. Similar to her eye makeup, Miley (whose freckles can be spotted from a mile off) keeps it clean and simple, perhaps without using any sort of foundation at all. Simply wash your face beforehand and you’re all set (though if it’s a must, adding a light layer of foundation is perfectly acceptable. Make the look your own!).
Whether you have a set of fake white nails in the bathroom or prefer to use nail polish, you can easily complete the look and give it some extra detail to really impress. Achieving Miley Cyrus’s look is absolutely possible for anyone who wants to try it. Looking as fabulous as this audacious celeb takes hardly any time and can be done with simple tools from your everyday makeup bag. Give it a try and you’ll be amazed at the results!
