Who is she?

Lady Amelia Windsor, currently 38th in line to the throne (pre Meghan Markle pregnancy) and deemed the ‘Most Beautiful Member of the Royal Family’, this girl is the one to watch. At 23 years old she has done far more than the average 23 year old would ever dream of ( myself included).. perks of being a royal! From studying languages at Edinburgh University to walking in major fashion shows as well as working behind the scenes with some of the biggest brands, Lady Amelia is the one to watch. Not only that but she is hugely into sustainable fashion, a growing issue in the fast fashion world we live in. I think its fair to say this girl is pretty awesome and this look from last years Dior fashion show was so gorgeous I really wanted to have a go at recreating it.


Now I am no makeup artist and I couldn’t find out what products were really used but looking at the picture I can suggest what products I would use to recreate a similar look ♥


The Beauty Look

BASE

This look is very dewy and natural which is easier to get away with when you have skin like Lady Amelia’s! If you don’t have that natural tan (like moi) then prep your skin with fake tan and tanning drops for the face, my favourite’s the Australis tanning drops. These tanning drops are amazing for sensitive skin and still give you that face colour to match your body. Lady Amelia’s base is very dewy and natural so I’d start of with Hollywood Flawless Filter in Shade 5 to get that instant hit of light with a goldeny undertone. Then to cover any under eye circles I’d go in with YSL Touche Eclat in Shade 1, again using base colours that perfect and reflect light to give that dewiness without the oily look.

For foundation, I would suggest the Dior Backstage Foundation in 3W (used for Meghan Markle’s wedding makeup no less!) mixed with Farsali Rose Gold Elixir, apply sparingly where needed on the face. It’s clear that Lady Amelia doesn’t need much foundation for this look so apply to perfect not to mask. I would only mix oil with a foundation if I wanted to add more dewyness to it if it wasn’t dewy already; this combination is beautiful as the Dior Backstage Foundation has more of a satiny finish and with the oil it just gives this glow from within.

I always apply concealer after foundation to anywhere the foundation wouldn’t cover, the one I would use for this look is Le Correcteur de Chanel in shade 20. To set everything in place I’d use the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Powder in shade 2 to take away any oilyness; keep the makeup in place and still maintain that glow. Then to finish off the base, bronze in the shape of a 3 around each side of the face with with a warm toned bronzer like Soleil Tan de Chanel to get that chizzled jawline and cheekbones, and finish by highlighting the high points of the face with a dewy highlighter like the Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand.


EYES

To achieve that yellowy gold eye look all you need is a gold and brown shade of eyeshdow, I would take the Urban Decay Naked palette and go in with shade ‘Buck’ buffing into the crease then with a flat eyeshadow brush take the ‘Half Baked’ shade and sweep across the eyelid and under the eye. Add a bit of the shade ‘Dark Horse’ to the outside corner of the eye buffing upwards to give that smokey effect. Then I’d go in with a black liquid liner, my favourite is Ligne Graphique de Chanel in Noir Noir thinly along the top lash line, and finally finishing off with black mascara. Next take a brown gel eyebrow wand like Chanel Le Gel Sourcils in brun and sweep upward strokes across the brow to create that effortless ‘un-perfected’ bushy brow look.


LIPS

Finally to get that ‘just bitten’ natural rosy lip use a hydrating sheer lipstick, my favourite is Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in shade Boy or an alternate version would be Rosie for Autograph Lip Glossy in ‘Supermodel Smile’ (Obsessed with anything by Rosie Huntington- Whitely, omg her range for M&S is amazing! Girl can do no wrong..)

I would say Lady Amelia has used that cheek and lip colour match technique so take whichever lipstick you’ve used and blend some into your cheeks with your finger. Using lipstick as a cheek stain is the best way to achieve a creamy blush for a look like this.

I had so much fun recreating this look! Hope you get some inspo ♥
