Usually the MTV Movie Awards entertain us with wacky performances (Britney anyone?) and even wackier outfits.  It is not the type of awards show that I look to for makeup inspiration.  Yet, low and behold I saw a teen star that actually rocked the smokey eye!  Luckily for you, I was able to find out what her makeup artist used on her for the awards.  Enjoy!!

Inspiration:  Vanessa’s look was inspired by the amazing dress and accessories she was wearing, as well her golden tan.  We decided the best look would be a golden glow and fluffy lashes.

Eyes:  For this look I used the darkest color from theNeutrogena® Nourishing Eye Quad in Copper Glow on Vanessa’s eyelid, and theNeutrogena® Skin Soothing Eye Tint in Honey Shimmer on the brow bone.  Next I lined Vanessa’s eyes as well as the inner rim with Neutrogena® Nourishing Eyeliner in Spiced Chocolate.  I finished her eyes with three coats of Neutrogena® Healthy Volume Waterproof Mascara in Carbon Black.

Face:  I evened out her skin tone with the Neutrogena® Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup in Tan and gave her a glow using the Neutrogena® Mineral Sheers Blush in Natural Apricot.

Lips:  For her lips I started with the Neutrogena® MoistureShine Lip Sheers in Sparkling Nude and topped it with the Neutrogena® Moisture Shine Gloss in Fizz.
