The super cute singer looked sweet & fresh in pink blush and lips for the 40th American Music Awards. If you love the look, we found out how to recreate it straight from her makeup artist!
Carly Rae Jepsen, 26, was so flirty in blush tones for the star-studded event. Her pink lips and cheeks brightened up her face and lent a youthful glow that was so flattering against her raven-hued hair. Celebrity makeup artist Tina Turnbow created the fun and sassy look. “We wanted to create a look that would mimic the softness and femininity of Carly’s dress, while still remaining sexy,” says Tina. “The colors on her dress were baby pink, teal and gold – very feminine, but it was also very form fitting with an open back that gave it a little edge.”
Here, Tina’s step-by-step how to:
To prep Carly’s Skin, she used the Votre Vu Attentive Serum Delicat Pour Le Visage first and then the Attentive Crème du Jour over to provide a moisturized base for the foundation.
“We wanted the focus to be on her eyes, which we wanted to reflect the soft/sexy contrast of her dress,” says Tina. First, she applied the Votre Vu Lingerie Pour Le Yeux to create an even, nude base for the eye shadow to stick to. Then, she swiped a shimmery gold eye shadow all over the lid to match the dress. To create the soft, yet defined look for her eyes, she lined them with the Votre Vu Le Joli Crayon in Charbon, smudged it up and out at the edges with the sponge tip to create a slight smoky cat-eye effect, and then applied a black liquid liner on top for more definition. Lastly, she applied two coats of the Votre Vu Eiffel Power Mascara, concentrating more on the outer edges for a more feminine, flirty look.
On her cheeks, Tina applied the Votre Vu Vu-On Rouge Cheek and Lip Tint in Bouquet Rose, which “gave a great natural, pink flush to her cheeks while not taking away the attention from her eyes.” For her lips, she lined them with a pale pink lip liner to lighten up the color of the Vu-On Rouge in Bouquet Rose, which she lightly brushed over to give more dimension.
Lastly, she set the whole look by the misting the Votre Vu À Votre Santé spray, which doubles as a makeup setting spray. “Carly loved it, especially the scent! It gave just the right amount of dewiness to her skin while ensuring that her makeup wouldn’t move throughout the night since she’ll be performing!”
