Holland Roden looked so fantastic at the MTV Video Music Awards last night! The Teen Wolf actress balanced her bold, high-fashion dress with glowing and gorgeous makeup that we're absolutely in love with. Celebrity Makeup Artist Elle Leary dished on how she crafted the look for the event, including the exact products she used!
“Holland’s dress is feminine with an edge so we wanted to mimic that feel with her makeup," the artist said in a press release. "The dress has lots of beautiful pinks, reds and corals so we played that up with the colors we used.”
“To start, I applied TEMPTU Airpod Foundation in Warm Ivory all over using the new TEMPTU Air," she explained. "This gave the complexion a flawless, even look. I then contoured using Airpod Foundation in Beige. I wanted the skin to look really dewy and radiant. On the cheeks, we used a variety of colors to mimic the colors in Holland’s dress. I started with Airpod Blush in Nude Pink along the jaw line and cheek bone to add dimension and depth. Then from the apples of the cheeks back to the hairline I applied Blushing Coral. On the apples of the cheeks I used Hot Pink. It’s so sheer but gives a great color pay-off and matched the dress perfectly."
"For Holland’s eyes, we did a very dramatic cat liner to edge up the look," she dished. "I used Benefit They’re Real Push Up Liner in Beyond Black in a straight line from the inside corner to outside corner. Then we applied a couple of coats of mascara for dramatic lashes."
Finally, "I lined the lips with a nude liner and then used TEMPTU Color True Lipstick in Tawny Spice," Elle shared. "I applied Color True Lip Gloss in the middle of the lips to give a little moisture and pop."
