DIY Alexa Chung’s “Dream Makeup” Look
Before Alexa Chung trots off into the sunset with a basket to meet a French man (her words, not mine), she sat down with makeup artist Lisa Eldridge to create a tutorial on her signature look—one she’s “ripped off” of icons like Jane Birkin and Françoise Hardy. Though Chung allows the pro to pretty much do all of the work, she is controlling about one element: eyeliner. “It’s one of the only things I can do in life,” she quipped. (Not to mention, Chung developed her own liquid formula with Eyeko.) In addition to sharing the secret to her famous flick, the Brit reveals the four products she keeps in her bag at all times, explains her ongoing beauty “struggle,” and why having a “mammoth” blemish is similar to having boobs.
