MTV MOVIE AWARDS
June 6th 2010
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.
I adore Too Faced on top of super chic packaging the makeup is perfection. I can’t wait to try the new Naked Eye Soft & Sexy Eyeshadow Kit. I love the colors, the soft pink and beige’s are perfect for date night with your man or adding a little glam for a night on the town. The kit also includes 3 look cards to complete the perfect soft and sexy eye.

I absolutely LOVE these new shades by Barielle! I’m totally in love with the shade Belly Dance. I’ve worn it twice since I got it!
For summer 2010, boogie down with new disco-inspired nail polishes in the High Steppin’ collection from Shades by Barielle. Six metallic hues and Barielle’s signature healthy “3-free” formulation make hands and feet dance with style.
Flashing back to the 70’s, get groovy with Electric Boogie—an inky metallic blue with teal glitter; shake it up with Belly Dance—a nude taupe with shimmer; party until dawn with Night Moves—a sparkling metallic silver; turn it around with Passion Pirouette—a grape metallic purple; sway to the style with Slow Motion—a light metallic lavender and let loose with Freestyle—a cool metallic mint with silver glitter.

I was just sent some samples of some great new products for summer and wanted to share my favorites.
My favorite from the new line is the Naked Beauty high lights cream cheek color. Its a great double duty product giving my cheekbones a little lift and the cream blush smooths on giving my cheeks the perfect flushed pink look.
Be summer-ready with Smashbox’s new Naked Beauty Summer Collection ($20-39)! From shimmering nudes to soft pinks, the collection is packed with nearly-naked shades for eyes, lips and cheeks. This summer, expose your natural beauty and create an ethereal, lit-from-within glow with these Smashbox essentials.
So Rodial Brazilian Tan has been a standout from me recent product reviews. Its one of those products you love so much you are scarping at the bottom of the sample to get every last drop. I just apply before my makeup it has a great tropical coconut scent and absorbs quickly. Then in a few hours my face has a great healthy glow I apply it every morning to my face, neck, chest and arms. It gives you a great healthy glow that makes everything look better and smells delicious!
Can’t make it in for a spray tan? Rodial Skincare allows you to get one from the comfort of your very own home! The Brazilian Tan line ($49) gets you the glow you want as well as nourishes your skin. Choose Brazilian Tan Light or Dark for an instant coat of color. You can also build up to that summer shade with Brazilian Tan Daily, which increases gradually.
A great and truly affordable primer, Sally Hansed Luminizing Face Primer gives you that little extra glow. I even wear it alone when I am in a rush and just need a little help with my skin. You will love how quickly it absorbs and how great your skin looks.
Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy’s Luminizing Face Primer ($9.95) will help you to shine and will emphasize your summer tan – faux or real! It smoothes and refines skin texture while hiding pores and fine lines. Micronized pearl creates a healthy glow when worn alone or as a smooth base under makeup. Skin-smoothing cork oak and olive leaf extracts nourish skin and boost radiance while vitamin E provides antioxidant protection.
