Look of the Month :: Summer 2013 :: July

Argh Mateys! It be thee 10th Anniversary of the release date of one of me favorite movies of all time: Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.

In honor of that, this fun summer digital face chart is based specifically off of Keira Knightley's look from the movie when she's running around with Jack Sparrow in her white undergarments. I researched what Ve Neill (my favorite makeup artist by the way) did for this look, and surprisingly it wasn't much at all. Keira's just so pretty that she's barely wearing any makeup! Here's what she wore in the film:

Various sunscreens were used to protect the skin, such as Dermalogica Solar
Defense Booster, Peter Thomas Roth, Skinceuticals, and DDF Therapeutic Skincare.

Kryolan Dermacolor was used sparingly around the eyes and very rarely for any blemishes.

Although it looks like eye makeup was used, they're just natural shadows.
There's no color on the eyes.

Curled, and no mascara.

Cheeks & Lips
Benefit Benetint Lip Balm was used not only on the lips, but on the cheeks because
of the creamy consistency and the natural color it gave to the cheeks. However, most
of the time Ve would just pinch Keira's cheeks before the camera started to roll.

So that's pretty much the same look that I recreated as well, with the addiction of a little extra contouring on the cheekbones for that killer Keira bone structure and switching out the sunscreen for the natural coconut oil option. This look's so simple too, and it's perfect for a hot summer's day out at the beach. So get adventurous everyone, and remember: A pirate's life for us!
