Celebrity Makeup Breakdown: Hayden Panettiere


She maybe young but Heroes star Hayden Panettiere sure is one cutie! Her signature look is sweet and fresh with soft smoky eyes, dewy bronze skin and pink lips.

Hayden Panettiere Makeup tutorial

To fake Hayden’s glow, start with a tinted moisturizer. Use a concealer if you need extra coverage and powder only your oiliest areas. Create a healthy flush by applying with a bronzer all over and a peachy blush like NARS Orgasm on your apples.

No matter what color of eyeshadow Hayden uses, her eyes are kept soft and smoked out. The key to the look is to blend your eyeshadow upwards and outwards. Dab a shimmery eyeshadow in the inner corners and line your upper and lower rim with a black kohl pencil. Finish the look with several coats of mascara.

Stick to rosy pinks and nude pinks and remember to add gloss.
