Hi there makeup lovers,
For the past few days, me and my boyfriend have been doing NOTHING but watching the greatest show on earth... Friends! After watching episode after episode after episode, the beauty that is Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston) and her makeup captured my imagination. My favourite character from the series is Chandler (hands down, I literally am in love with him), but since he doesn't wear makeup, it'd be pretty difficult to recreate his look! Jennifer Aniston never fails to look absolutely drop dead gorgeous in the show. It really is no wonder that she enthralled every guy to ever tune in to this 90's classic. So, I picked up my makeup brushes and set out to look like her. Hopefully my attempt was a lot better than Ross' in 'The One with a Chick and a Duck' (Season 3 Episode 21).
Ok, so let's talk you through how I created this look.
Once you've got your base on as normal, it's time to focus on the brows. Rachel obviously has very thin, circular shaped brows, so when shaping them, smooth over the arch to try to make the shape more circular. No harsh brows today ladies! And to make my brows look a bit thinner, I filled in the centre first and flicked the powder outwards. This means the brows are darkest in the middle, and from a distance, the perimeter of the brow is not very noticeable, thus creating the illusion of thinner brows!
For the eyes, you want to go really smokey in the crease but leave the lid blank (or use a natural colour). One of the key points that I love about Rachel's look is that she is able to pull off a subtle smokey eye as an every day look! For this look, I used my Too Faced Natural Matte Palette- this palette was perfect as all of the cooler colours were grey toned browns, so it isn't as harsh as using straight up grey!
- 'Heaven' as a brow bone highlight and on the lid
- 'Cashmere bunny' as a transition shade- you do want to bring this up a little higher than you usually would
- 'Sexpresso' to deepen up the crease and the outer v
- Pop some Ardell 'Demi wispies' on top and your eyes are good to go!
For the lips, you want to go with the classic 90's colour. To define the lips, I used Mac's 'Soar' lip liner. Then I went over top with No 7 lipstick in 'Bare'- the perfect 90's shade!
Just pair this with a subtle, matte bronzer (no harsh contouring here!) and a brown toned mauve shade and your Rachel look is ready to go!
