Not only did Hannah Brown, 25, put on a great performance at the Dancing With The Stars finale on November 25, but she looked drop-dead-gorgeous doing it. The former Bachelorette won the show and won her glam for the night as she rocked a bronze smokey eye with a bold red lip. Celebrity makeup artist Alison Gladieux, who filled in for Hannah’s regular DWTS make-up artist Sarah Woolf, shared with HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY, how she created Hannah’s look for the finale and what steps she took.
Hannah’s winning smile was the star for finale night. “Hannah has that all American girl smile and I wanted to show case that with a bright red lip and a soft beautiful bronze bold eye,” Alison told HL, “Hanna has beautiful green eyes so I chose to use the new Zpallete eye shadows to make the green pop.”
As for the exact steps Alison took, she revealed:
1. “I started with the iS Clinical Moisturizer all over her face and around the eyes.
2. I always do eyes first when applying make up so you can clean up any fallen shadow and start with fresh skin. Using the Urban Decay Primer Potion in SIN I washed it all over the lid with their vegan eye shadow brush in medium. The vegan brushes from urban decay are great and you can feel good about using them!
3. Then I applied Zpalette eye shadows: In Guava Mente on her inner lid and Bit Coin on the outer lid as well as in the crease. I applied Punch Drunk shadow under the bottom lashes and up into the outer crease. It’s important not to close off the eye so I applied Tarte fake away eye highlight pencil into the inner rim both on top and bottom of the water line of her eyes.
4. I used Stila Stay All Day liquid liner in dark brown in the upper lash line. It’s important to frame the eyes and lay a dark foundation for the lashes to sit on.
5. Then I curled the lashes and applied the Kevyn Aucoin Mascara to the lashes to finish it off.
6. Next I applied Ardell Demi Wisp Lash that is longer in the middle to help open the appearance of the eye and then laid 4 individual long lashes in the center of her eyes for the extra push.
7. For foundation I used Thrive Cosmetics CC Broad Spectrum in light medium all over her face and followed with Kevyn Aucoin concealer #9 under the eyes, the bridge of the nose, and in between the brows to highlight. I used a Beauty Blender for the application to ensure it looks like her natural skin.
8. I used my favorite contour palette from Lime Crime Sunkissed to contour and highlight. I used Salty for the contour and Sundazed for the highlight on upper cheek bones and tip of the nose.
9. I lined her lip with MAC liner in Ruby Woo and filled them in with Stila Stay All Day in BESO.
10. For finishing touches I used the hourglass loose powder to cut the shine from her forehead, cheeks and chin.”
