Paris Jackson is no stranger to the more daring side of beauty. Just as she made us covet peachy pink hair, she switched things up and went for a unicorn look. At last year's Met Gala, she wore five layers of highlighter. Suffice it to say, we'll take any and all tips she and her makeup artist Jo Baker wants to offer us.
Baker sat down with Elle U.K. to talk about the beauty style she helps the 20-year-old bring to life. She keeps Jackson's "magical and very spiritual" personality in mind when designing her makeup looks. Each look is curated to fit Jackson and her energy, not the latest beauty trends. "She's such a great advocate for embracing your individuality and trying something cool and different so I never want to give her a makeup look that Bella Hadid wore last week already," Baker explains. "It's always something a little more abstract and cool."
Baker even has a (very appropriate) nickname for Jackson, which is simply Baby Wolf Eyes. "There's almost no look you can do on Paris where her eyes don't look amazing," she explained in her interview. To complement Jackson's "outrageously beautiful pale aquatic marine blue" eyes, Baker opts for rust tones or purple or green jewel tones. (FYI, no matter your eye color, there's always an eye-makeup hue that can help them stand out.)
Jackson's signature cat eye was also something that came out of Jackson's own beauty style. "Paris loves the exaggerated shape of a cat eye — she sends me pictures of different looks all the time," Baker told Elle U.K.
To achieve Jackson's pouty lips, Baker opts for a classic makeup artist trick: overdrawing her lips. "The trick is to miss out the corners of your lips when you're lining them and just fill in the center," she said, which helps make her lips "look a little pouty" without actually, well, pouting.
As for products, Baker reaches for the likes of Tom Ford Lipstick in Open Kimono, Dior Diorshow Pump 'N' Volume Mascara, and Glossier Boy Brow. It's basically a shopping list for all your new "nighttime in the summer" faves.
