Pixie Lott is continuing her ascent in the British pop scene, and is doing it very stylishly I might add! I love her platinum blonde locks and her feisty winged eye makeup. Last week, she unveiled her new clothing collection with fashion brand Lipsy, along with a rocking new ad campaign. This shot is from her 'Festival Look' and is already getting me excited about festival season. Makeup guru Karen Alder was behind the look and I managed to bend her ear for five minutes to find out how she did it.

"It’s always great fun working with Pixie as she loves experimenting with make-up," explains Karen. "The festival range gave us an excuse to get creative and go crazy!"
STEP 1: LINE THE EYES: "Use a black khol liner. I love Lancôme khol pencils, they are so soft and you can really blend them and work on getting the perfect shape for you."
STEP 2: EYESHADOW: "Go over with M.A.C eyeshadow in Carbon. This will set the liner and you can really blend out the edges and build up the intensity."
STEP 3: LASHES: "Pop on 140 Intense Lashes by Eylure. These are not for the faint hearted but give a real rock chic look!"
STEP 4: BASE: "Apply, keeping it as sheer as possible. For younger skin use a tinted moisturiser, Laura Mercier's are great and they also have an oil free option."
STEP 5: GLITTER!: "Pat a little She Laq by Benefit on your cheekbones this acts like a glue for the glitter to stay. Then brush M.A.C 3D reflects in Silver along your cheekbones and also in the corners of your eyes."
STEP 6: LOVE HEARTS: "M.A.C. pencils in Green Glo and Pinkie and Lancôme Artliner in black and draw love hearts and stars randomly around the cheekbones and into the temples."
STEP 7: FINISH: "Keep lips and cheeks pretty neutral. I used ligloss and a touch blush on her cheeks."
