Get the Look: Vanessa Hudgens at Neutrogena Wave for Change camapaign launch

Makeup artist, Karan Mitchell created Vanessa Hudgens look for the kick-off of Neutrogena’s Wave for Change campaign at the Neutrogena Beach House in Malibu, California:

For the beach-side event, Vanessa wanted her makeup to be “golden and whimsical.” Since it was a sunny day I made sure to use products that were not only beautiful but were packed with SPF protection.


Even bare, Vanessa’s skin looked soft and bright. She’s been using the new Neutrogena Wave® Sonic Power Cleanser and her skin felt incredibly smooth as I applied her makeup.

First I prepped her skin first with Neutrogena Healthy Defense Liquid Moisturizer SPF 50. It is a liquid moisturizer that sinks right into the skin so it wears beautifully under makeup. For her foundation I used Neutrogena Healthy SkinÒ Liquid Makeup SPF 20 in Tan and I perked up her eyes with the Neutrogena Healthy Skin® Brightening Eye Perfector in Medium.

On her cheeks I used the bronze shade of the Neutrogena Healthy Skin® Custom Glow™ Blush & Bronzer in Natural Glow which I also used under the cheekbones for contour.


I started with the peach base color from the NeutrogenaÒ Nourishing Eye Quad in Butter Crème and applied it all over her eyelid, up to the brow. It has an SPF of 15, so protect delicate eyelids from the damaging effects of the sun.

Next, I used the copper shade on her lids from the NeutrogenaÒ Nourishing Eye Quad in Copper Glow. I also applied the golden shade to the middle and the inside corners of her lids with a dampened brush.

Then, I lined only the top of her eyelid with the NeutrogenaÒ Nourishing Eyeliner in Cosmic Black and applied some individual lashes. I finished her eyes with two coats of NeutrogenaÒ Healthy Lengths Mascara in Carbon Black.


For a peachy pout I used Neutrogena MoistureShineÒ Lipstick, with SPF 20, in Peach a Boo, and layered the Neutrogena MoistureShineÒ Gloss in Healthy Peach over top of it for a glassy finish.

Get the Look: Miranda Cosgrove Despicable Me premiere

Miranda Cosgrove wore a deep purple dress that had a rock and roll vibe, but with a fun flirty twist, to her Despicable Me premiere in Los Angeles yesterday.

Coleen Campbell-Olwell – make-up artist for Miranda Cosgrove (Tips below):

I wanted the makeup to be romantic with an edge, so I chose to play up her eyes using Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Duo in Sugar Plum. I swept the base shade over her lid and then applied the accent color along the entire top lash line and only to the outer part of her lower lash line which gives the eyes an instant “lift”.

I then smudged Neutrogena Nourishing Eyeliner in Cosmic Black along the top lashline, which really makes your eyes smoulder! I always reach for Neutrogena Healthy Lengths Mascara in Carbon Black because it lengthens your lashes without the clumps!

To keep her skin glowing without the shine, I blended Neutrogena Healthy Skin Oil Free foundation in Natural Ivory and then swept Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil Free pressed powder also in Natural Ivory.

For the final touch I applied Neutrogena MoistureShine Gloss in Berry Fit to Miranda’s pout. It’s a perfect shade for summer!

Neutrogena GET THE LOOK – Miranda Cosgrove & Vanessa Hudgens

Make-up Artist: Coleen Campbell-Olwell – Miranda Cosgrove

Coleen Campbell-Olwell: I loved Miranda’s young and hip red dress for the MTV Movie Awards! To highlight her natural beauty, I kept her makeup fresh and fun – peach-shimmer lips and smoky eyes with a hint of copper.

The trick to keeping Miranda’s face luminous but shine free for the long night was Neutrogena Skin Clearing Oil Free Foundation and Skin Clearing Oil Free Pressed Powder, both in Natural Ivory. Then I swirled Neutrogena Healthy Skin Custom Glow Blush and Bronzer, in Posie Glow, onto the apples of her cheeks. I LOVE this palette—it’s so versatile!

To create Miranda’s smoky eyes, I applied Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Quad in Copper Glow. It goes on sheer, but you can build it up for a more intense look. For dramatic lashes to frame her gorgeous brown eyes, I brushed on two coats of Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara in black. And here’s one of my secrets: for an attention-grabbing look, I pick one facial feature to focus on – in this case, Miranda’s eyes. By keeping her lips more subtle using Neutrogena MoistureShine gloss in Healthy Peach, I was really happy with the result.

Skin prep is also just as important so there is a great base to apply make-up. Recommend the Neutrogena WAVE to exfoliate the skin pre-event so the surface is smooth and ready for application. Also on a hot day, it is important to wear an SPF in your moisturizer under your make-up. Neutrogena Anti-Reside Shampoo is also a great product to use once a week to remove the residue of hair care products from your scalp.

My makeup bag must have.

I am a huge fan of the Neutrogena SkinClearing Blemish Concealer it has become a daily staple in my beauty routine. It works great as a concealer it blends really easily and the acne treatment really works. I could tell I had a blemish brewing under my skin, I started using it every morning and the blemish disappeared instead of getting worse! I just dab it on any problem spots after applying my foundation and not only am I hiding imperfections I am working on getting rid of them!
