Anyone tune into the People’s Choice Awards this week? There was plenty of beauty inspiration on the red carpet and I have the inside scoop to two in particular: Gabrielle Union and Bella Thorne, both Neutrogena brand ambassadors who had their makeup done by Amy Oresman and Fiona Stiles.
Bella Thorne’s Look: Modern and Powerful
“We kept her skin clean and glowing using Neutrogena Skin Clearing foundation and brightened under her eyes with the Heathy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector. Before I do this step I always prep the skin with a great moisturizer to lock in the skin’s moisture and maintain a dewey, natural glow. We used Bella’s staple moisturizer which is the new Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Moisturizer Pink Grapefruit which keeps your skin soft but also treats breakouts.
We kept Bella’s eyes nude using the new Neutrogena Soft Taupe Nourishing Long Wear eye shadow palette with built-in primer and added three coats of Healthy Volume mascara in black with Nourishing Eye Liner in Spiced Chocolate on the top lash line.
We set her look with highlight around her face using Neutrogena Crease Proof eyeshadow in Stay Golden on her cheekbones and bridge of nose.
We wanted to focus on her amazing lips by contrasting a soft red coral with her black Armani power suit. Using a combination of NARS coral lipstick in Lana mixed with Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Bright Berry over the top.”
Gabrielle Union’s Look: Pretty and fresh.
“A soft smokey eye balanced out a pretty soft lip with her gorgeous glowing skin. The dress was such a great vibrant color, it felt nice to do something that was a little sexy but still really pretty and approachable at the same time.
We started by prepping her skin with Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel – it absorbs quickly but keeps the skin really hydrated which is key to maintain a natural glow from the inside out.
To create this soft smokey eye we started with the Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear eye shadow palette in Cool Plum and added a of couple coats of Healthy Volume mascara in black with Nourishing Eye Liner in Brushed Pewter blended into the lash line. Their new color palettes give you a lid, crease, highlighter and liner color, which makes doing smokey eyes really easy. And to off-set her eye we went with a muted lip using Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Sweet Watermelon.”
