Nikki Reed: Step Up Women's Network 8th Annual Inspiration Awards
I did Nikki's makeup for the Step Up Women's Network 8th Annual Inspiration Awards. Here's what I used: For the face, I applied mark MIn-A-Real in Honey with a foundation brush. I used mark Good Riddance concealer in Light/Medium under her eyes. To the apple of the cheeks, I brushed on mark Just Pinched in Cheeky using a foundation brush. Then I dusted Matte-nificent powder in Honey/Golden with a powder brush to set the look. I layered mark Good Glowing Mosaic Blush in Hush Baby over Cheeky, using a blush+bronzer brush. This will make sure the blush will last all day. For her eyes, I prepped the eyes with Please Hold Eye Primer in Light/Medium. I applied I-Mark in Minx to her inner eyelid, as a highlighter, using the all over eyeshadow brush. Then I applied mark On the Dot Eye Palette in the dark taupe brown shadow to the lid, blending it outward, using the eye shadow brush. I used an angled contour eyeshadow brush to blend and soften the shadow into the crease. Then I smudged the same taupe color eyeshadow(Dots) along the top and bottom lashline using the eyeliner brush. I finished the eyes with two coats of mark Scand-lash Mascara in Blacklash to the top and bottom lashes. Also, I groomed her brows with mark Brow Factor Clear Brow Gel. For the lips, I used mark Color Shine Lipclick SPF 15 in Cupid.
