The daring singer went all out with dramatic eye makeup and radiant skin for The 40th American Music Awards. Here’s how you can get her look, directly from her makeup artist!
As she’s the latest face of CoverGirl, we’re not surprised that Pink, 33, delivered a strong beauty look with a glamorous edge. “Pink’s beautiful bronze leather and chiffon dress was modern and strong, yet feminine, so we wanted to do a makeup that reflected that, a simple, paired down but glowing, glamorous beauty look,” says her makeup artist, Kathy Jeung. “We’ve been doing a lot of smokey eyed looks lately, so thought we’d mix it up and do a look that felt a bit like Old Hollywood glamour, but in a modern way, with focus on the eyes, especially the lash line and lashes.”
Here, Kathy’s breakdown to get the look:
She applied foundation using a foundation brush and then further blended with a moistened sponge and set with a light dusting of CoverGirl Professional Loose Powder around the t-zone. For touch-ups, she used CoverGirl Clean Oil Control Pressed Powder. She first applied a peach shade blush, CG Classic Color Blush in Natural Glow on the apples of the cheeks and blended outward and up. Then she applied a shimmery bronzer, CG Cheekers Bronzer in Golden Tan along the upper outer cheekbone area and also on the outer temples.
For eyebrows, she used a few soft strokes of CG Brow & EyeMakers Pencil in Soft Blonde to define, then brushed into place with CG Profession Natural Lash clear mascara.
For the eyes, she first applied CG Eye Enhancers in Champagne all over the lid and on the brow bone. Next she used a bronze shadow, CG Eye Enhancers in Mink in the crease and blended well. Along the outer corner of the eye, she used a metallic color that wonderfully matched her dress, CG Eye Enhancers in Tapestry Taupe.
To get depth along the lash line Kathy used CG Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Black Fire, drawn with a bit of a cat eye shaped at the outer corners, then smudged. Over that to further define, she used CG LineBlast 24 Hour Eyeliner in Enduring Black, in a thin line along the lash line. Along the outer lower lash line, she again used CG Eye Enhancers in Tapestry Taupe to accent to cat eye shape.
To add a little more dimension and to further blend, sheI added CG Cheekers Bronzer in Copper Radiance in the area around the brow bone with a medium fluffy brush. Over curled lashes, she applied 2 coats of CG Clump Crusher by LashBlast Mascara in Very Black on the top lashes. Because of its amazing staying power with no smudges, she used CG LashBlast 24HR Mascara on the lower lashes – 2 coats to really bring out her already long lower lashes.
Kathy prepared the lips with a lip balm while she was doing skin preparation so it had a chance to absorb into her lips. She started with CG LipPerfection Lip Liner in Smoky to define the lip edges, and then added CG Outlast All-Day Lipcolor in Faint Hue, let that set, then applied the corresponding clear lip gloss over to add more shine.”
