Hollister Inspired Makeup and Hair (Mostly Drugstore!!)

Hey! Its phoebs :) 
I was watching someones youtube video (cannot remember what or whose it was haha) and a suggested video was a GRWM for working at hollister. Which got me thinking what if I attempted a Hollister model makeup and hair look for you guys? I always see Victoria Secret Angels tutorials on youtube, but never Hollister ones. I have called it a Hollister makeup look, however it really is a simple, summer makeup look. Though it is barely spring in England right now *sighs* . 

** disclaimer ** I personally do not agree with Hollister/Abercrombie's (etc) way of only employing people to work in their shops if they have a certain "look". I am in no way suggesting you have to do this makeup and hair look in order to have this "look" , this is just a bit of fun, so please treat it like any other makeup tutorial. There is no point in thinking their " look"is the ideal look, everyone is beautiful in their own different way. Love you all **


I firstly mixed this Rimmel Primer with some of my Benefit highlighter, to give my skin a natural, dewy base. I have heard that some Hollister shops have a no makeup policy for their employees, so to keep the base makeup natural, I applied the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer under my eyes and on blemishes. I blended it in with my fingers for a natural effect. What I like about this concealer is how creamy it is, so it doesn't look cakey. I set this with some translucent powder. As my brows are naturally thick, I just used the maybelline brow drama gel to neaten them. If you have more sparse brows, filling them in would still go with the look, it's all personal preference really. 
I look really creepy here aha, but the look so far. 
On my eyes , I just curled my lashes and applied a few coats of mascara for a fluttery effect. I also used a white eyeshadow to highlight the inner corners of my eyes, for a brightening effect. 
Hollister models always look bronzed and tanned, so I used my bourjois bronzer as a contour (because I have no cheekbones) and as an all over bronzer. Apply bronzer where you like to, I apply it on my cheekbones, jawline, and temples. For lips, I decided to go slighlty more bold than usual, but a natural gloss or peach lipstick would compliment this look well. I used the max factor lip pencil in 04 pink princess. Then I applied my H&M nude lipgloss to my bottom lip and my maybelline lipgloss in 130 Fuchsia Flash to my top lip and mixed them together, if that makes sense. As my lips then looked very glossy, I blotted my lips, so they only had a subtle shine. 
 Overall, the lip combination created a pretty, pink colour. That is the makeup done! 

Hollister models seem to always have beachy waves, or just a relaxed, beach style. I washed my hair this morning and just let it dry naturally for this look. Another way of achieving this would be plaiting your hair (wet if you want a full on wavy look, or dry if you want a general relaxed style, like mine) the night before and taking them out the next day. Finally, another beach style would be a messy side braid, I would of done this but my hair is quite short for a side braid haha. 

I hope you enjoyed this hollister inspired look, comment below any requests for other looks!
