Aloha, my elegant ladies.
How many of you watch Pretty Little Liars? Well…if you are like me, totally absorbed in all the secrets, scandal, thrill, and mystery of the show, this is a look inspired off of one of my favorite liars..Hanna Marin.
This is a look that should look great on everyone. Hanna sports a very sensual smokey-eye that is usually brown or black, paired with a pretty pink lip. With her wide blue eyes, golden curls, and flawless, alabaster skin, she looks very innocent, but the smokey eye gives her an unexpected edge.
Here’s what you need to achieve an air of mystery:
- A coverage of your choice, but stray from anything super-matte! (Think fresh-face, NOT cake-face!)
- A pretty pink blush
- Brow definer (This is one step you shouldn’t skip!)
- Eye primer
- Brown eyeshadows (chocolates, ambers, taupes, ect.)
- Black or brown eyeliner
- Mascara (the blacker, the better!)
- Light pink lipstick
- Lipgloss (Optional)
The first step is to erase all your flaws, which is basically EVERYTHING, from crinkles, to wrinkles, to dark circles! Hanna’s skin is perfect, smooth, and luminous, what I like to call “baby-skin”. Make sure to work in thin layers, and blend, blend, blend. You want your skin to look fresh and radiant!
And before you think twice, a highlighter is a must-have for this look. Like I said, Hanna has super-glowy skin. Make sure you don’t go over-board, a little on the high points on the face is enough. Adding a layer of blush will give that extra touch, but make sure you pick a cream, satin, or matte formula, NO glitter.
Before we move onto the eyes, let’s give our brows some looove.! My brows are kind of sparse, so I filled them in. Make sure you arch your brows, because your eyes need a good frame. ;}
When you get to the eyes, make sure your lids are prepped and primed. This look is all about playing up your eyes, so you better prepare yourself.
First off, start layering your shadows. I started with a taupe on my lids, which is a super-universal color. Then I dabbed a soft brown on the outer third of my eye, and ended with a darker color in the crease. You want to feather these colors into each other, so it has a natural gradience. With the darker colors, you can build them up to a certain intensity, but you don’t need to go super harsh.
When we get to eyeliner, THAT’S where things start getting totes cray-cray. In my mind, Hanna’s eyeliner is her signature. In a lot of her looks, it’s really thick and smudged…the epitome of sultry! Draw on your line and smudge it with a Q-Tip or a brush, but only a little bit! Then line your waterline too; it makes a huge difference. But don’t forget about mascara, that’s just as important!
The final step is the easiest: Lipstick and gloss. Hanna’s lips are never super-bold, so stick with your soft, pearly pinks.
Aand now you’re finished, lovely. ❤

As you can see, the eyes are very intense. I love how the colors blended!
The lips were the easiest part, and sooo awesome!
The pink looked perfect with a topping of gloss, and made my lips look super plump.
Anyway, I hope you all enjoyed this post!
