Our Dec 2014 cover girl Ruby Rose is undoubtedly the hottest thing to happen to the latest season of Orange Is The New Black. As new inmate Stella Carlin, she’s been stealing many hearts with her piercing grey-blue eyes, swept-back hair and sculpted features.
Jokes about that undeniable resemblance to Biebs aside, we do want to have a piece of her gender-fluid appeal. So we’re hitting the replay button on this Ruby Rose makeup tutorial by YouTube makeup maestro Kandee Johnson, because in just under two minutes, she manages to transform herself into a pretty convincing Ruby Rose doppelgänger.
Sure, Johnson already bears a rather striking resemblance to Rose, and we don’t have those sharp Western features, but with some coloured lenses, clever contouring and an accurate hair parting, we could come pretty close.
