TaylorÂ Swift and Ellen Degeneres both donned CoverGirl for the 2011 Teen Choice Awards and they looked amazing, beautiful and natural! Makeup Artist Lorrie Turk did Taylor’s makeup with a summery, youthful look since its August!
To make Taylor’s eyes pop, we started by brushing on COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers1-Kit Shadows in Turquoise Tempest #435, which we topped with COVERGIRL Exact Eyelights Eye-Brightening Eyeliner in Radiant Sapphire #710. We finished her eyes with COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara in Very Black #500.
For a young and radiant glow, we used COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation, accentuated with a peachy blush.
We balanced the bold color we used on Taylor’s eyes with a more muted look for her lips. We used COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lipcolor in Rapture #280.
Ellen DeGeneres’ makeup was done Heather Currie and she gave Ellen a fresh, yet edgy look! See her makeup magic below…
Ellen likes her makeup to look flawless so I started by using the COVERGIRL Simply Ageless Serum Primer. I like to start with a primer to give the foundation lasting power, which is great for a long night out.
I followed the primer with COVERGIRL and Olay Simply Ageless Foundation. Since its summer and Ellen has a bit of a tan, I used foundation #245 Warm Beige. I like to start by getting the sponge wet and applying the foundation that way.
Next, I used a little of the COVERGIRL and Olay Simply Ageless Concealer in Light Medium #215 and mixed it with the COVERGIRL and Olay Simply Ageless Corrector in #230. I used my finger to mix the two together on the back of my hand, and then I applied it to the area under Ellenâ€™s eyes, making sure to reach the inner corners of the eye area as well.
I then applied the COVERGIRL and Olay Simply Ageless Concealer in Light Medium #215, with a brush to the T-zone area. I used the concealer lightly to cover any redness or imperfections on the skin.
Because it is an event that lends it self to an edgier look, I made Ellenâ€™s eyes the focal point. Her eyes already stand out, so itâ€™s fun to enhance them even more. I began by applying the COVERGIRL Intense ShadowBlast in Brown Bling #815 to the lid area, making sure to use my finger to blend the shadow into the crease. I love this product because itâ€™s a primer and a shadow so you can build on top of it with dry eye shadow for a lasting look.
To add more definition to the lash line I then added the COVERGIRL LiquilineBlast Eyeliner in Brown Blaze #420. I like to use my finger to smudge this line upwards away from the lash to give it a smoky effect. I do this step a couple of times for more intensity, always making sure to blend it well. And to complete the eyes, I applied two coats of COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara in Brown #515.
Since the focus was more on the eyes, I used a lighter color of blush, COVERGIRL and Olay Simply Ageless Blush in Rich Cinnamon #210. I applied the blush with a synthetic brush, but itâ€™s just as easy to use your finger, or the sponge that it comes with.
Since I wanted Ellenâ€™s skin to have a beautiful glow, I lightly powdered her face with the COVERGIRL Clean Pressed Powder for Normal Skin in Natural Beige #140.
Along with the blush, I wanted to down play the lips so that the eyes would remain the focus. I used COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Gloss Balm in Pinot #245.I really like this gloss. Not only is it moisturizing, but it adds a hint of color to the lips without looking heavy.
