Miley Cyrus’ Makeup: How To Get Her Look For Your Halloween Costume

Makeup artist Andi Metro stopped by the offices and gave us a makeup demo on Miley’s Video Music Awards look. Now you can get exclusive tips from a professional and get this look for yourself!

Keep reading for a step by step tutorial to get Miley’s dewy, youthful look that will accurately resemble her notorious VMA performance! With everything from her strong brow to natural eye to her bold lip — we’ve got it all covered in a detailed demo!

Step 1 — Hair: All you need are 2 hair-ties, hairspray, a comb, and bobby pins.

Part hair down center with a comb. Damp hair will best achieve the look! Place two ponytails on opposite ends of head, sitting high but forward on the top of  head.

Spray down pony for extra hold. Twist and wrap hair around the ponytail.

Use bobby pins and hairspray to secure buns for a night full of twerking!

Step 2 — Skin: Dewy, youthful and fresh looking.

Moisturize skin with any oil-free moisturizer prior to applying foundation. We recommend using Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Tinted Balm with a Beauty Blender for a quick, seamless, natural application. 

Step 3 — Eyes: Light, natural and matte.

Prime your eyes to help eyeshadow adhere and last longer.

With a light matte base color, cover eyelid up to the brow bone.

With a blending brush, pick a natural color that is 3 levels above your skintone. Apply to outer corner of eye with a back and forth motion, defining the eye crease.

Buff out harsh edges with outer corner as the strongest point.

Use that same color with a pencil brush to line bottom lashes.

Use Makeup Forever Aqua Cream Liner to line the upper lash line.

Curl and coat lashes with a black mascara to prep for a set of thin, layered lashes.

Apply a bold brow with an angle brush and shadow.

Step 4 — Contouring: For Dimension.

Set skin with translucent powder.

With MAC’s Bone Beige contouring powder, apply to the hollows of the cheeks, temple and hairline — this even can be used to thin out your nose.

Finish the look with a peachy blush applied to apples of the cheeks!

Step 5 — Glow: Youthful, dewy, glow.

Apply Becca Luminator on the high planes of the face — tops of cheekbones, and down the middle of the nose.

Step 6 — Lips: Bright & Bold

Finish the entire look with a bright red lip!

In just 6 simple steps, you are sure to look just like Miley! Tell us what you think about Miley’s look. Are you daring enough to take on the Miley challenge, HollywoodLifers?
