How to Achieve that Flirty Flair: Carly Rae Jepsen
“Call Me Maybe” became 2012’s unsuspecting anthem. Its innocent words and lighthearted delivery by Carly Rae Jepsen was met with exceptional popular success on YouTube, gaining over 300 million views and reaching the number one spot on both the US Billboard and Canadian Hot 100. The single also went to the number one spot in 19 other countries.
Makeup artist Tina Turnbow explained, “We wanted to create a look that would mimic the softness and femininity of Carly’s dress, while still remaining sexy,” says Tina. “The colors on her dress were baby pink, teal and gold – very feminine, but it was also very form fitting with an open back that gave it a little edge.”
To prep Carly’s Skin, she used the Votre Vu Attentive Serum Delicat Pour Le Visage first and then the Attentive Crème du Jour over to moisturize.
First, she applied the Votre Vu Lingerie Pour Le Yeux to create an even, nude base for the shadow.
Then, she swiped a shimmery gold eye shadow all over the lid to match the dress.
She lined the eyes with the Votre Vu Le Joli Crayon in Charbon, smudged it up and out at the edges with the sponge tip to create a slight smoky cat-eye effect. To give a bit more definition to the eyes, Tina then applied a black liquid liner on top. To complete, the eye Tina applied two coats of the Votre Vu Eiffel Power Mascara, concentrating on the outer edges to accentuate the flirty feminine flair.
On Carly’s cheeks, Tina chose Votre Vu Vu-On Rouge Cheek and Lip Tint in Bouquet Rose, to “gave a great natural, pink flush to her cheeks while not taking away the attention from her eyes.”
For her lips, she lined them with a pale pink lip liner to lighten up the color of the Vu-On Rouge in Bouquet Rose, which she lightly brushed over to give more dimension.
