Celebrity Makeup Breakdown: Leighton Meester at Teen Choice Awards 2010

At the 2010 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday, Covergirl Celebrity Makeup Artist Molly R. Stern gave Leighton Meester a soft, pretty glow with blue eyeliner and nude lips.

“I prepped Leighton’s skin with Josie Maran Argan Oil Skin Primer and lightly moisturized with SK-II Facial Lift Emulsion. Next, I sparingly used CoverGirl Clean Liquid Makeup.

For her eyes, we wanted a celestial glow with a smidge of an edge. So I first based her eye with NARS Cream Shadow in Corfu on the lid with Shu Uemura ‘P Gold 94′ over the top. I added a little silver sparkly glittery shadow from RMK, a treasure I found in Japan, to the inside of the lid and under the outer edge of the eye. Next, I lined the top of the lid at the lash line and under the eye with CoverGirl LiquiLineBlast Eyeliner in Blue Boom. For her lashes – 2 coats of CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion in Brown was the perfect finish.

On the cheek, I used Kevin Aucoin Creamy Moist Glow in Nuelle and dusted YSL Touché Blush over the top.

To set her look for the red carpet, I dusted all over with La Mer Treatment Powder Foundation in Linen.

On the lips I wanted a long-lasting nude so I chose CoverGirl Oulast Lipstain in Nude Kiss on the lip with CoverGirl ShineBlast Lipgloss in Dazzle over top.”
