Andi Dorfman The Bachelorette 2014 Makeup Tips

zap-the-bachelorette-season-10-andi-dorfman-gl-009

They’ve dubbed her ‘a new breed of Bachelorette’ because she’s feisty, intelligent, sexy and knows what she wants in a man. Andi Dorfman was a criminal attorney in Atlanta before her explosion in popularity from hit TV show The Bachelor (she was on the infamous bachelor Jaun Pablo’s season).

Yes, she wants love but she’s not about to dumb herself down or dilute her personality to find it. I love her because she’s serious business and it’s a rare find for a girl to be equal measures beauty and brains. The big question is, will she find a man on The Bachelorette 2014 that’s one part brain the other braun? Only time will tell!

Because her beauty is so often spoken about I’ve revealed a complete breakdown on how to get her look. Yes, she does have fantastic genes, but I think many of the below products will help you shine in a similar light.

Skin

Tanned Skin

modelco-natural-tan-self-tan-lotionAndi has gorgeous glowy tanned skin. This of course comes down to her genetics, but if you want to have a honey toned complexion, it isn’t hard to fake (even if it’s just for one night!). ModelCo released their new Natural Tan range just yesterday. This lotion is made up of antioxidant rich sweet almond oil, coconut oil, macadamia oil, cocoa butter, goji berries and aloe vera. It delivers a gorgeous natural looking tan that’s streak free. Defs worth trying out beauty cadets! ModelCo Natural Tan Self Tan, $14.95

Hair

Ombre Colour

Miss Andi has been rocking ombre locks for the last two years. The gradient of dark roots to light ends always looks flattering because it helps to lighten the face and make you look more lively. Thankfully, getting this look isn’t going to cost you the world, you can now DIY your own ombre hair at home with L’Oréal Paris Préférence Wild Ombrés, $19.45

Glossy Shine

Now that you’ve got her colour, you need to make sure your mane is super duper shiny, almost reflective! I’ve been looovvving Schwarzkopf’s BC Bonacure Oil Miracle Light Finishing Treatment. The scent is beautifully fragrant. You only need the smallest amount on the lengths of your hair for it to appear shiny and healthy, $39.95

Smile

White Teeth

oral-b-3d-white-whitestrips

Andi Dorfman has impressively white teeth! I have quiet a few American buddies who have told me that teeth whitening is far more popular and accepted as ‘the norm’ then it is here in the land of Aus. Thankfully we can jump onto this flattering and glamorous band wagon thanks to Oral B 3D White Whitestrips. These genius clear adhesive strips are lined with a tooth whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide. Because they are stretchy you can align them perfectly with your gum line and cover the top row of your teeth, then your bottom row with a new strip. They don’t taste bad at all so you can wear them while your watching Andi and totally forget that they are there, $29.99 for a box of 14

Nails

Get Nude

Look closely at Andi’s neat, square and creamy painted nails. That’s what I’d see in a glossary if I looked up ‘perfect mani’. To get this sophisticated shade you can’t lose with OPI’s new Chilln’ Like A Villain creamy taupe nail polish from their fun new Muppets Most Wanted collection. Because this polish is salon quality it will last you much longer as well! Horrah! $19.95

Makeup

Matte Base

Andi Dorfman has mastered the art of perfecting a matte base. She never has an oily T-zone, like ever?! I suggest using NYX’s Stay Matte Not Flat Foundation. It’s a creamy liquid coverage that has the ability to hide all of your skin sins because it’s made from natural minerals. It’s also oil-free and water-based so it won’t clog your pores the way a regular long-wear foundation would. Oh, and it’s only $14.95! #winning

Bronzed Glow

Because you’ve applied ModelCo’s Natural Tan you now want your face colour to match the rest of your body. My current favourite bronzer is by Eminence Organic Skin Care. This pressed mineral powder offers it all: spf protection, bronzing and illuminating qualitites and it’s filled with vitamins. Yes! There are vitamins in this bronzer via jojoba seed oil, zinc oxide, rosemary extract, green tea, vitamins A and E, acai and aloe. What a show off! Sweep this bronzer onto all of the planes of your face. Eminence Organic Mineral Illuminator in Mocha Berry Bronzer, $66

Subtle Pink Cheeks

Apart from her overall gorgeous glow, Andi has a noticeable pink flush to her cheeks. To replicate this rosy tint use Benefit’s stunning Hervana blush box. It features a pretty swirl of pink and peach tones with illuminating pigments so that when you dust them onto your cheeks they will appear full and glowy, $51

Neutral Shimmery Lips

NARS-Andy-Warhol-Viva-Larger-Than-Life-Lip-Gloss

Andi almost always sports a neutral toned lip. For this particular look she’s wearing a gloss with a slight pinky peachy tone. It also has a hint of shimmer to help make her smoochers look bigger. A great match is NARS Larger Than Life Lip Gloss in Cosmo. This gloss will glide on effortlessly and evenly and it has great longevity so you won’t have to touch up as often throughout the day! $42

Cream Eyeshadow Base

shu-umeura-pressed-eyeshadow-beige

It’s time to pretty up your peepers. Andi Dorfman has beautiful brown almond-shaped eyes. But, even if your eyes are another pretty colour or a completely different shape, this eye look that I’m about to detail is universally flattering so please give it a go. Andi has a creamy base eyeshadow applied to the entirety of her eyelid. This matte mocha shade is easy to find from most makeup brands, however my go-to is Shu Umerua Cream Eyeshadow in Beige. I like this one because it doesn’t crease, it lasts all day (and well into the night) and because it’s a cream eyeshadow it spreads and blends so effortlessly, $42

Add Some Sparkle

mirabella-glitter-glaze

If you look closely, the colour on Andi’s eyelids isn’t just creamy matte’ness. There’s also the slightest hint of sparkle. To avoid stepping into tack-ville make sure to use a cream based glitter that doesn’t have free particles, basically steer clear of glitter powders that may have fallout. I LOVE Mirabella Glitter Glaze, it’s the same consistency as the Shu Umerua Cream Eyeshadow so it will build and blend on top of it perfectly, $44 (toll free call to purchase: 1300 262 275)

Flirty Eye Opening Liner

they're-real-gel-push-up-liner-benefit

Andi has lined her top lashes with a matte black eyeliner. She hasn’t flicked out the ends or created a ‘cat eye’ look. She’s simply rimmed them and tapered off the edges where the lashes stop. I recommend using a gel eyeliner that keeps its matte black consistency and doesn’t look too watery or dry grey – a lot of ink liner pens will do this. Benefit’s They’re Real Gel Push Up Liner has an angled dispenser that releases the right amount of gel that can easily line your lashes without any bumps or dripping black ink, $35 (They’re Real! Push-Up Liner hits shelves June 27th, see my pre-release swatch here)

Don’t Forget Your Waterline

covergirl-liquiline-blast-eyeliner-brown-blaze-en

It’s time to add dimension to your eyes by lining your waterline. That’s the tiny line of skin just above where your bottom eyelashes start to grow, it meets with your inner tear duct. Take a long-wear smooth and creamy eyeliner in a chocolate brown colour. I like Covergirl’s LiquilineBlast Eyeliner in Brown Blaze because the pencil doesn’t hurt to draw onto this sensitive spot because it’s made with waxes to help it glide without pulling at the skin, $14.95

Long Splayed Lashes

benefit-theyre-real-mascara

Lastly, Andi Dorfman isn’t a huge fan of fake eyelashes, rarely have I seen her wear them during the filming of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette. Instead she uses a lengthening and thickening mascara. My favourite mascara recently, that boasts all of the above, is Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara. It’s Myer’s number one selling mascara and for good reason – it does everything it claims! I suggest that you coat both the top and bottom lashes twice. Take in your long no-clumps lashes, $38
