Hayley Williams 'Hard Times' // Get the Look

In case you hadn't already guessed from the amount I've gone on about it, I'm freaking obsessed with Paramore at the moment. Especially Hayley Williams, she is such a beautiful, talented human who always kills it with whatever look she is rocking. I am especially obsessed at the moment with her make up look for the music video 'Hard Times.'

I've been wanting to recreate the look for a while now, but I'm a bit shit at makeup so wasn't too sure how well it would go down. I've now realised I don't really care that much whether people hate it, it's my own interpretation. I've opted to make this look slightly more wearable in the sense that it's less giant colour panda eye's and is a bit more toned down - as toned down as yellow and blue eye shadow can be at least.

Most of the make up products I've used are from high street brands so they are all really accessible and pretty affordable. 

FOUNDATION // Rimmel Lasting Finish - 200 Soft Beige
CONCEALER // Collection 2000 
POWDER //  Loreal True Match -Rose Vanilla
BRONZER //  Bourjois Bronzing Powder 
EYEBROWS // Stila -- In the Light Palette
EYE SHADOW // MUA - Poptastic Palette 
EYELINER // Rimmel Exaggerate Liquid Eyeliner
MASCARA //  Rimmel Wonder'full
LIPSTICK // NYX Liquid Suede - Sandstorm
BRUSHES // Real Techniques & Eco Tools.

My technique is pretty slap dash -- chuck it on and blend it in until it looks pretty. I think because the original look was quite messy and over the top looking, it doesn't matter too much how precise everything is. I'm actually really happy with how this look has turned out, I think it's a pretty good homage to that bad ass look. I feel like I would actually rock this look out in public too, if I was feeling especially brave that is.

What are your thoughts on this look?
Would you be brave enough to rock it?
What's your favourite 'inspired by' make up look?
