Vanessa Hudgens’ Braids — Get Her ‘Gimme Shelter’ Press Look

Kelsey started with Vanessa’s makeup:

“This particular look was for a press day for Vanessa’s new movie, Gimme Shelter. Her role in the movie is gritty, so we went the opposite and brought fresh and flirty back!

Vanessa has amazing skin, so I applied the lightest layer of Armani Luminous Silk Foundation to her face followed by Chanel Les Beiges Powder in 50 (significantly darker than her natural tone) to the cheeks as a natural contour, adding La Prairie Cellular Radiance Creme Blush in Berry Glow on the apples of the cheeks.

Vanessa’s Dramatic Transformation

To make the eyes pop, I opted to keep the eyeshadow close to the lash line and smudged Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow in Rich Brown along the top and bottom lash lines. I rimmed the bottom and upper water lines with Tarte EmphasEyes Inner Rim Eye Pencil in Black.

On her lips I used NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Jardin des Plantes.”

Kelsey tells HollywoodLife.com: “Her hair was prepped with Rene Furterer Vegetal Mousse and I did a quick, rough dry to add texture.

I then separated the hair in two sections, braided them and twisted them up onto the top of her head to create a halo or crown. I secured with hair pins and sprayed to hold. Lastly, I pulled at the braid a bit and ran my hands over it to mess it up for this effortless flirty style!”
