Celebrity makeup artist, Karen Mitchell created Vanessa Hudgens’ Kids Choice Awards look – now she teaches you her secrets to this flawless face:
“Vanessa’s look was really fun and more casual then most red carpet events. Her accessories and outfit were really rock and roll inspired so we went for a fun, smokey eye and a pretty shimmer to the skin,” says MitchellFace:
“For her glowing skin we began with Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Liquid Makeup in Tan, and 3-in-1 Concealer for Eyes in Medium. Then, I set that with the Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Powder Foundation in natural beige.”
“By applying a bit of concealer to the lid first, you can achieve a great base for eyeshadow. We used the Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Concealer Kit in Medium on Vanessa. It is moisturizing and gives a really natural coverage. For the eyeshadow, I chose the Neutrogena Nourishing Quad in Moonlit violet. I used the silvery highlight shade in the palette on the inside of the top and bottom of the eye. The crease (wine) and accent (smoke) colors from the quad were blended at the outside of the lid corners blending out and up into the crease. I also line the eye underneath with the crease wine color.”
“Then I lined the entire eye with Neutrogena Nourishing Eyeliner in Cosmic Black, and I brushed brows with a soft toothbrush and filled in with accent color from the Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Quad in Sea Shell – it made the perfect brow powder. Finally, we curled the lashes and added four coats of Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara in Carbon Black.”
“To finish her look, Vanessa’s lip color is a layer of MoistureShine Lipstick in Sheer Luck and MoistureShine Gloss In Whisper.”

Celebrity makeup artist Vanessa Scali created the look for America Ferrera at the Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday night. We’ve got the scoop, straight from Vanessa, on how to re-create America’s glamorous look.
First, before applying any makeup, Vanessa prepped the skin with Lancôme Genifique, a youth activating concentrate that improves tone, texture and luminosity giving the skin a natural glow. To create a flawless complexion, Vanessa used both Lancôme Effacernes concealer and Armani Lasting Silk UV SPF 20 Foundation. She used Armani Fluid Sheer #2 as a highlighter and applied it with her finger to the cheekbone and brow bone. This gave the complexion a bit of added shimmer. Lancôme Color Design Cream Blush in Pret a Plum was applied to the apples of the cheeks for just a pop of color. Shu Uemura Cream Eye Shadow in Beige was lightly dusted on the eyelid and Lancôme Artliner in Noir was applied to the upper lash line. Several coats of Lancôme Ôscillation mascara were applied to the lashes for added length and volume. To compliment America’s pinky/coral frock, Lancôme La Laque Fever gloss in Cyber Coral and Techno Brick were mixed together to create a high-shine pout.

I love, love, love this eyeshadow! I have tried many cream shadows before, and nothing even compares to this!
Cream Shadow from Urban Decay is a gel-based cream shadow.
Urban Decay Cream Shadow channels the sex appeal of the 70’s and the science of today. Whipped to perfection, each shimmering shade dries to a weightless layer of color that will not crease, fade, or hide in fine lines. Unlike most cream shadows, the gel-based formula features silicone technology, allowing time to blend, correct, and smudge. Once dry, shadow is light and as flexible as your own skin.
The tube is travel friendly and mess free. Use the attached flocked applicator to shade the entire lid. Or, get artistic and squeeze Cream right from the tube: you can also apply Cream with your fingertips or your own brushes! A little goes a long way! To build your color, apply a thin coat, let dry, and apply additional coats to get the color you desire. Staying power is enhanced when used in conjunction with Eyeshadow Primer Potion! If there’s a powder shadow and a Cream in your look for the day, apply your Cream shadow first for the best blending experience. Try mixing pink or gold shades into foundation for a fresh, dewy look.
