Celebrity Makeup Artist Karen Mitchell Shares her secrets to Vanessa Hudgens’ Kids Choice Awards Look!
Celebrity makeup artist, Karen Mitchell created Vanessa Hudgens’ Kids Choice Awards look – now she teaches you her secrets to this flawless face:
“Vanessa’s look was really fun and more casual then most red carpet events. Her accessories and outfit were really rock and roll inspired so we went for a fun, smokey eye and a pretty shimmer to the skin,” says Mitchell.
Face: “For her glowing skin we began with Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Liquid Makeup in Tan, and 3-in-1 Concealer for Eyes in Medium. Then, I set that with the Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Powder Foundation in natural beige.”
Eyes: “By applying a bit of concealer to the lid first, you can achieve a great base for eyeshadow. We used the Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Concealer Kit in Medium on Vanessa. It is moisturizing and gives a really natural coverage. For the eyeshadow, I chose the Neutrogena Nourishing Quad in Moonlit violet. I used the silvery highlight shade in the palette on the inside of the top and bottom of the eye. The crease (wine) and accent (smoke) colors from the quad were blended at the outside of the lid corners blending out and up into the crease. (this doesn’t make sense) I also line the eye underneath with the crease wine color.”
“Then I lined the entire eye with Neutrogena Nourishing Eyeliner in Cosmic Black, and I brushed brows with a soft toothbrush and filled in with accent color from the Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Quad in Sea Shell – it made the perfect brow powder. Finally, we curled the lashes and added four coats of Neutrogena Nourishing Eyeliner in Carbon Black.”
Lips: “To finish her look, Vanessa’s lip color is a layer of MoistureShine Lipstick in Sheer Luck and MoistureShine Gloss In Whisper.”
