Get the Look: Dakota Fanning Eclipse Premiere

Dakota Fanning’s GET THE LOOK for the ECLIPSE red carpet premiere event in Los Angeles

June 24th 2010

Dakota Fanning’s make-up artist Sammy Mourabit used the following Neutrogena products/cosmetics and he provided key tips to re-create her look:

First I moisturized Dakota’s skin using Neutrogena new Healthy Defense SPF 50 Liquid Moisturizer (great protection and it layers invisibility under make-up providing a broad spectrum sun protection and moisturization).  (Tip: I used a wet sponge to apply the Neutrogena moisturizer in order to create a dewy look).

I covered any little imperfections under Dakota’s eyes using: Neutrogena Skin Clearing Blemish Concealer mixed with the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector.  Dakota only 16 years old does have perfect skin, so I have no need to use any foundation just yet which is why I created this mix as needed for just the eye area specifically.

I controlled the T-Zone shine by using the Neutrogena Skin Clearing Mineral Powder (in Classic Ivory).

I used a little touch of Neutrogena Healthy Skin Custom Glow Blush and Bronzer (Tip: I use my wet and moisturized sponge to perfectly blend the blush with her skin. It creates a natural and fresh look).

Neutrogena Healthy Lengths Mascara in black/brown is great mascara, easy to apply and rich in pigment yet not too dark.

I used on her lips, Neutrogena MoistureShine (Glisten #20) gloss.  Glosses are much more appropriate for Dakota’s age range and leave her lip moisturized and shining.

This is how I achieved this young, fresh, edgy but yet modern look on Dakota’s face.
