Celebrity makeup artist Tina Turnbow created Carly Rae Jepsen’s feminine, flirty look for the 2012 American Music Awards.“We wanted to create a look that would mimic the softness and femininity of Carly’s dress, while still remaining sexy,” said Turnbow. “The colors on her dress were baby pink, teal, and gold – very feminine, but it was also very form-fitting with an open back that gave it a little edge. Read on to find out which products were used and how to get the look at home!
We wanted the focus to be on her eyes, reflecting the soft/sexy contrast of her dress. First, I applied the Votre Vu Lingerie Pour Le Yeux ($20.30) to create an even, nude base for the eyeshadow to stick to. Then, I swiped a shimmery gold eyeshadow by Stila all over the lid to match the dress.
To create the soft, yet defined look for her eyes, I lined them with the Votre Vu Le Joli Crayon ($16.10) in Charbon, smudged it up and out at the edges with the sponge tip to create a slight smoky cat-eye effect, and then applied a black liquid liner on top for more definition. Lastly, I applied two coats of the Votre Vu Eiffel Power Mascara ($16.80), concentrating more on the outer edges for a more feminine, flirty look.
On her cheeks, I applied the Votre Vu Vu-On Rouge Cheek and Lip Tint ($20.30) in Bouquet Rose, which gave a great natural, pink flush to her cheeks while not taking away the attention from her eyes. For her lips, I lined them with a pale pink lip liner to lighten up the color of the Vu-On Rouge in Bouquet Rose, which I lightly brushed over to give more dimension.
