Debby Ryan At Target Party — Her Sun-Kissed Makeup

“As soon as I saw Debby’s dress, I was inspired by artist Monet‘s lily pad paintings. I wanted her to look youthful and fresh,” Laura Dee tells

“I wanted to capture the watercolor effect. I knew with her gorgeous eyes I wanted to make them a key look. I used a blue/green liquid liner (BY TERRY Ligne Blackstar Liquid Eyeliner) to help bring out the color in the dress and balanced it out with black mascara on the top lashes. I used a soft blue mascara (BY TERRY’s TERRYBLY Mascara in Terrybleu) on bottom lashes to keep it soft.

To keep within my palette I used a soft coral for her lips (BY TERRY’s Rouge Terrybly Shimmer: Age-Defense Lipstick – 801: So Flamenco) with a sparkle gloss on top to capture the look of glistening water.

To give her a glow, I used NARS Bronzing Powder in Laguna. Debby gave me free reign for her makeup so I took the dress as my inspiration.

Top tip: Do your mascara first. One coat of black on top, then blue on the bottom. Clean up after and then start your makeup. No mess or mascara ruining your face makeup!

Top tip: Clean teeth before lipstick application — brush lips for 30 seconds to help plump and smooth them.”

Debby Ryan’s Ravishing Red Hair — Get Her Look

“For Debby’s hair for this event, I really wanted it to be youthful, fresh and modern,” Brian tells EXCLUSIVELY.

“I started by giving her a good blowout. I applied dollop of Phytodefrissant [straightening balm] to her wet hair and used a large round brush to get it nice and smooth. Next, I took two inch sections and curled just the ends with a 1 and a 1/2 inch curling iron to give her hair texture and movement. I used Aveda Brilliant Finishing Gloss on the ends to make it a little piecey, and Aveda Control Force Hairspray to hold the look. Lastly, I finished the look off with a light mist of Aveda Brilliant Spray On Shine, and she was ready for the red carpet!”
