Lucy Hale seriously outdid herself at the Country Music Awards last night in Nashville. The Pretty Little Liars star and budding country singer turned to makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan to create her pretty, feminine beauty look.
“Lucy is wearing a gorgeous pastel flowy dress and we knew her makeup had to be glamorous and standout, but not overpower the sweetness of her overall look,” says Kelsey. “We decided on a fresh look focusing on her eyes and drew shadow inspiration from the colors of her dress.”
Kelsey offers up her tips for achieving Lucy’s look:
Face and Cheeks
• I began by prepping her skin with Nourish moisturizer by Lancer Skincare. This product soaks into the skin leaving it hydrated throughout the night allowing the makeup to continually look even and fresh.
• For Lucy’s skin, I mixed Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 5 and 5.5 and applied it with a fluffy brush working from the center of her face outward. For any areas that needed extra coverage and to brighten under the eyes, I used Cle de Peau concealer in Ivory.
• Next I applied mark Just Blushing Powder Blush in Cameo to create a deep contour and topped off the cheeks with the pinks of the mark Wonder Glow Blush & Glow All Over Face Palette. I swept it high across Lucy’s cheekbones allowing the subtle shimmer to illuminate her skin.
To make Lucy’s eyes pop, I used the mark 10 Year Anniversary Eye Shadow Palette in the left two colors (the M and A) all over her lid. I lined the top and bottom with both mark No Place to Run Longwear Eyeliner in Jet Set and Foxy Brown. For the inner corners of her eyes, I used the white shade (on the far right) of the mark 10 Year Anniversary Eye Shadow Palette. The brightness in the corners or her eyes allows the shadow to catch the light and reflect it and makes Lucy’s eyes appear larger. I finished her eyes with two generous coats of mark Scanda-Lash mascara in Blackest Black.
To finish Lucy’s look, I applied mark Make It Rich Lip Crayon in Naturally. This sweet peachy pink allows the focus to be on her eyes, but also complements her dress and her overall look.
