Six Steps To Master The Porcelain Doll Look

Hello my little loves
It's my birthday!! I'm finally twenty-one, booo!! For my birthday beauty post I wanted to do something special and a little unique but I didn't have a clue what to do. Next week I may do a little haul of the latest beauty products I have purchased however as I have only just ordered my pieces I can't review them, obviously. Anyway, back to today, after a little debating and planning I decided to do a post on how I mastered my porcelain doll look! As I know how awkward it can be to pull off this style of make-up I just thought I'd give you a few hints and tricks.
Before you start assuming I'm a little premature for Halloween, I'm not doing an actual porcelain doll make-up, I'm simply creating a pale look, you could always use this as a 1940-50's style if that's your type of thing. For nineteen years and more I wanted to be a blondie, or even a red head with dark skin and pink lips, and even though this is a really fashionable look and can be glamorous I just decided I wanted to be a tad more striking and quirky. Today I'm going to show you the six methods I used to active my porcelain doll look.

Dark Hair
Naturally I am a brunette, I have always had dark hair but it has varied by my having blonde highlights. I decided I wanted to go a colour as close to black without being black, this is mainly for maintenance and the health of my hair. However if you are any other colour you needn't worry as porcelain dolls can have any colour hair they wish, though it is usually in a singular block colour.

Pale Skin 
This is an obvious but the hardest trait to master, with skin as pale as mine it's difficult to hunt down a pale enough make-up however as you're going for the porcelain doll look this is a must! I don't have much experience with pale foundations as I've always worn a darker bass. However I do adore the pale look and will keep pursuing to find my perfect match. If you have this issue you can mingle an alabaster shade into your own colour. 

False Lashes 
This is optional, I don't always wear false lashes however I find them the perfect way to add a pop to your eyes! I love wearing falsies if I'm going somewhere special. If I'm just going to wear them for a night I prefer strip lashes however if you need them for a longer period of time I love individual lashes. I feel false lashes add to the doll look, what girl doesn't want long, deadly black lashes? If you the wow factor to compliment your porcelain skin I'd definitely recommend them!

Pink Blush
To add a slice of colour on your porcelain face I suggest a baby pink blush just on the apples of your cheeks, of course you can do a more bronzed cheek however I find that can make your foundation not look quite as pale. Pink blush comes across blushing and playful, it can also help balance out your complexion. If you're a contour genius you can contour your usual areas however be sure you smooth out any orange harsh lines to keep overall pale. 

Bright Lips
I have always felt more confident and chic with a lipstick that stood out however with pale skin bright lips are a must to create the porcelain doll look. In my opinion red is the signature colour however I sometimes prefer to alter classic image so I'll stick with a bold lip however I may choose a daring plum or if I fancy a more feminine look I go for a bubblegum pink that pops and catches the eye. 

Nails That Match
This is optional but to me bright nails that compliment your lips add a little sophistication and elegance to your end result. I never feel quite right without nail polish and to be on my top porcelain doll game I feel bright nails are an essential! I would recommend red or pink as a nail colour however like your lipstick you could always darken the style by having plum or even black nails.
