Lucy Hale’s make-up artist didn’t want her to look “dolled up” in her new music video.
The 24-year-old actress unveiled her first ever single You Sound Good to Me earlier this week with a video to accompany the track.
In the clip Lucy is seen enjoying a road trip with friends as they drive through the desert and make stops during their journey.
To create her look for the video the brunette beauty enlisted the help of celebrity make-up artist Kelsey Deenihan, who gave the star an effortless appearance to fit the theme of the song.
“Lucy’s lips were very natural for this look but I wanted to give them a small hint of colour,” Kelsey told beautyhigh.com. “I used Mark. Make it Rich Lip Color Crayon in Punch and applied it very lightly to give just a little tint to her natural lips. No gloss or liner were used to avoid looking to dolled up for this day out in the country.”
Kelsey also held this relaxed approach when working on Lucy’s skin. The beauty expert was keen to use light layers when creating the singer’s fresh-faced look.
“I started by prepping the skin with Murad Hydrodynamic Moisturizer all over Lucy’s face and neck and then applying Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in a mixture of shade 5 and 5.5,” Kelsey added. “By applying the base directly after moisturiser it allows the foundation to mix with the moisturiser and create a sheer coverage. The sheer fresh coverage is what we wanted since we’re not going for an over the top [glamorous] look.”
One area which Kelsey also put a lot of focus into was Lucy’s eyes, enhancing her natural features.
“I filled in Lucy’s already full brows with Votre Vu Arch de Triumphe eyebrow definer in Warm. I wanted to give them a bold shape to really frame her eyes,” she added.
