Want to know how Miley Cyrus got gorgeous for her big screen role in The Last Song? Her makeup artist, Julie Hewett tells you how!

Miley Cyrus, who in real life is a huge fan of fun, dramatic makeup like fake lashes and lots of eye liner, went for a more natural look to portray 17-year-old Ronnie Miller in her new film, The Last Song. “A lot of the movie takes place on the beach so the makeup is pretty clean,” says celebrity makeup artist Julie Hewett who worked on set with Miley to create her beauty look. Her look was so natural that it only took about 20 minutes to get Miley camera ready! “She is just a one in a billion young lady. Full of life and so special and so talented. I had the most fun summer,” Julie says.

“Her skin is so beautiful and she is so good at taking care of herself and her skin,” Julie says. Since the majority of the movie was filmed on the beach, this meant lots of sun protection for Miley. “We used Kate Somerville’s 55 SPF sun block everyday.”

Julie would prep Miley’s skin with Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer and set it with a good amount of bronzer. To give Miley a pretty flush, Julie custom blended two of her Cheekie shades just for her. “As a surprise, I made a color for her called Destiny,” Julie says.

“Miley has such spectacular lips. You really don’t need to put to color on there,” Julie says. “She is my biggest fan when it comes to my Camellia Balm.”

For Miley’s eyes, Julie kept things simple. I mean, she was at the beach, how weird would it have looked if she rocked a smoky Hannah Montana eye? “I used my Julie Hewett Rose Scented Mascara for her natural look and Diorshow for a party look,” Julie says.

To keep cool on the hot outdoor set, Miley would spritz herself with Julie Hewett Floral Water in Cucumber Extract. “She is obsessed with it. She would spritz it in her hair and her face. She lives for that. She loves it,” Julie says.

So, what did Miley do to relax in between takes? “Miley would grab the brush out of my hand and do my make-up!” Julie says. “She’s just knows everything about makeup and has remarkable taste. She’s just incredible,” Julie gushes. - Marta Topran

I use the Shielo Hydrate Mist (its a spray) mainly to set my makeup after applying. Not surprisingly, my makeup always used to wear off throughout the day and I’d come home looking like I did before getting ready that morning. If I spritz a little of the Shielo Spray on after applying my makeup I still have a fresh face of foundation, bronzer, shadow, etc. when I get home. It’s also great to spritz on your eyeshadow brush before applying if you want to get a creamer, more dramatic color.
