After years of drooling over her vintage-inspired looks in her music videos and using the blackhead vacuum amazon to take care of her skin, we finally got a peek into Lana Del Rey’s beauty routine. The “Summertime Sadness” singer recently Instagrammed a video of how she achieves her everyday look, and we can’t tear our eyes away. In the short clip, she wields a brow pencil and goes to work on her face—all while whistling and singing along to John Lennon’s “Jealous Guy.” She wrote in the video’s caption, “morning makeup to the beatles.”
First, we see Del Rey, hair pulled back in a clip, tame her signature bold brows. She starts off by brushing them upward with the spoolie end before filling them in with a dark brown brow pencil. The full label on the product can’t be seen, but it looks a lot like the cult-favorite Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. Then, she goes rouge and uses the pencil to dot on a few subtle freckles on her face. This could be a handy trick to cover up zits, but to us, it looks more like Del Rey is using the pencil to further define her existing freckles.
And she’s not done with that brow pencil yet. The singer, then, moves on to her eyes, where she uses the brow pencil to line beneath her lower lashes. The effect is super soft. (Del Rey is obviously a pro at the no-makeup makeup look.) She does throw in a twist, though. Instead of drawing along her water lines, she winged out the liner. Cat eyes—they’re not just for the upper lids, apparently. We applaud Del Rey for reminding us that the brow pencil is a truly multi-use product. Now if only she showed us the secret to those ultra-long lashes.
