Steal Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen's Make up and Hair looks

Everyone's favourite twins seem to have been forgotten lately. I literally haven't heard anything about them in years. If you know me well, you'll know that I used to be obsessed with the Olsen's, I had every film, every book, clothing, make up.. I just adored them. I think they're absolute style icons from the way they do their hair to the make up they wear. I want to share this with you and give you some  style stealing tips. My one dream was 'how do I do my make up and hair like Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen' and I hope that this will help some of us.

    THE LINER.This is seen very often on both Olsen twins, It really frames their faces. It makes their eyes literally pop out and suits them amazingly as they have such big bright eyes. It actually goes really well with blonde hair as well. 
I'd reccommend Bobbi Brown's gel eyeliner. It glides on perfectly for a deep and dramatic look, whilst lasting all day. MK&A line the insides of their eyes and go all around the eye.
-The twins do tend to make the liner more dramatic by actually using black eye shadow as well. I'd recommend using a blending brush with black eye shadow on and going over the top of the eye liner with it. 
-Use the eye liner to get a clear line and then use the eye shadow to extend this further by tracing the lines you have already drawn.
- A tip to make eyes appear bigger is to put a lighter colour such as white or gold inside the tear duct.
-I recommend Shu Uemura eye shadow in Black.

I admire how well these girls pull of red lipstick. There is only one place to buy the best lipstick, Mac Cosmetics.
Colour: 'So Chaud' looks absolutely incredible on. I recommend this from seeing it.
If you want a cheaper alternative try Kate Moss's range for Rimmel, some gorgeous colours!

You can see the eyes again on these photos, they look amazing. If you look at the photograph in the middle on the far left hand side, she has brown eye shadow/liner smudged underneath her eyes. I think this creates a really nice look. 

My tips to get the best tousled hair is to wash it and let it dry naturally; for me I have hair like Ashley does on the photo on the far right at the bottom, unfortunately it doesn't look that nice! 
-I'd use moose to make the curls more defined, I don't have a particular moose that i'd recommend, anyone will do.
- I advise not to put too much on, start with a small blob in your hand and gently hold each side of your hair in your hands as  you push it up into your hair.
- It should feel like you are flattening your hair together. 
-I do this whilst it is dry but if you have naturally straight hair do this when it is wet. 
-This works really really well on extensions. 

For beach hair use Lee Stafford beach babe sea salt spray. It does exactly what it says on the bottle.

Waaah I absolutely ADORE these photos. Ashley on the far left in the corner is my fave, I think her hair looks gorgeous. With shorter hair her cheek bones and jaw line is so much more defined. I also like the 3rd picture to the right at the top. 
-These are my photos of the twins having straight hair or 'up do's'. 
-For the slick back effect I advise using GHD straighteners and spraying hair spray on afterwards to ensure that you have no fly aways.

Here, Mary-Kate looks to have a blend of Silver eye shadow with black.
This smokey eye look is my favourite. The black liner is very subtle on her bottom 
lid which differs from what she usually wears. If you notice, inside her tear duct
there is white/cream eye shadow, this instantly brightens her eyes.

 I love the neutral colour of Ashley's lips on this photo. I'd reccommend
Mac lipstick in colour: Myth. It's their best seller and gives that foundation
lips colour but with a hint of something else. I love the brown that 
she has underneath her eyes here instead of using a black eye liner.
I absolutely love this natural and dewy look. Probably more than I prefer them 
wearing lots of eye make up. Her make up is actually very matte but she has
a sheer and quite shiny cheek colour on. It glows which I really like.
I'd recommend Mac bronzer in matte bronze but for the shimmer
i'd use a mineralize power before hand. Another recommendation to get
this look is using Benefit's Highbeam, it illuminates the cheek bones.

Once again, the nude lips and the extremely dark eyes.
The dark eyes really work with such neutral face make up.
