Get The Look: Nikki Reed at the Teen Choice Awards
Nikki was wearing a dress that had a sweet, relaxed bohemian vibe. Her hairdresser, Kristen Ess, gave her a soft romantic updo so I kept the makeup simple and bronzed and pretty. Anything too "makeup-y" would have felt overpowering and out of place with the rest of the look.
I used a little luminous foundation wherever it was needed and then set the base with a medium toned loose powder. Using a soft fluffy brush I applied a slightly luminous bronzer on the apples of her cheeks and a little beyond for a soft, summery sun kissed glow.
For her eyes I used a warm brown color all over the lid, and blended it right up into the brow bone. For a little definition along the upper lash line, and to make the lashes look thicker, I used a deep forest green color and smudged it right into the lashes making the upper lashes look even fuller. (I skipped mascara on the bottom to emphasize the upper lashes.) To keep the lip understated I used a sheer, warm pink that gave just a hint of color to her lips.
