Lana Del Rey 'Born To Die' Look

I think Lana Del Rey is possibly one of the most talked about people right now as her music has become a favourite amongst a lot of people. Not only that but her album has reached the No.1 hot spot in 11 countries, pretty impressive. 

Because of all the 'Lana Love' that's going on, I thought I'd re-create the look she wore in the 'Born To Die' video. 

Here is the look she wore in the video...

And here's the look I created...



Products used to create this look:
  • Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette (Eyeshadows used: 'Foxy', 'Booty Call', 'Tease', 'Snakebite' and 'Blackout')
  • MAC Penultimate Eyeliner
  • MAC Eye Kohl in 'Fascinating' 
  • MAC Zoom Lash Mascara
  • Eyelashes (eBay)
  • Duo Eyelash Glue
  • Chanel Perfection Lumiere in 'Beige - 10'
  • MAC Select Coverup in 'NW15'
  • Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in 'Dragon - 76'

If you would like to know how to create this look, follow my nice and easy steps.

  1. Apply Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion to the eyelids. Blend using a finger. 
  2. First apply the base eyeshadow, for this apply a small amount of 'Foxy' to the eyelids using a flat eyeshadow brush.
  3. Once the base eyeshadow has been applied, apply 'Booty Call' directly over the top. Again, use a flat eyeshadow brush. 
  4. It's time to apply eyeshadow, for this take a small amount of 'Tease' on a blending brush and place in the socket of the eye. Only blend lightly as it doesn't need to be fully blended out. It needs to look as if there's a dark shade on the socket. 
  5. To emphasise the darkness, apply 'Snakebite' directly over the top of the 'Tease'. Again, blend lightly.
  6. Using 'Blackout' and an eyeliner brush, line the top lash line.
  7. Apply 'Tease' and 'Snakebite' to the bottom lash line. You can do this by mixing the 2 eyeshadows together and using an eyeliner brush to apply. 
  8. Use 'Fascinating' on the bottom waterline as this will open the eyes. 
  9. Line the top lash line using the penultimate eyeliner and create a large wing.
  10. Apply mascara to the top and bottom eyelashes. At this point you can also apply false eyelashes. 
For the face, apply foundation to the skin using a flat top brush and then apply red lipstick to the lips. I didn't apply blush or bronzer as Lana Del Rey didn't appear to wear any in the video.

I hoped you like this look, it was quite an easy one to do!
