VMA’s Best & Worst Dressed!

VMA’s, known as Video Music Awards, aired last night and left many of us with our jaws dropped. To overview, Lady Gaga opened the show with her newest song and was actually pretty good. She sang it live and danced which is better than 90% of the stars these days. Afterwards was Miley Cyrus singing her new song and then accompanied Robin Thicke. Wow. If you were to recap anything from that show, watch Miley’s moves. She is definitely putting her brand out there that she isn’t Hannah Montana anymore. Nevertheless, after several hundred camera shots of Taylor Swift and the Smith family, Justin Timberlake was given the Video Vanguard award and blew everyone’s minds with a 20 minute performance of all of his hits over the last few decades and a reunion with NSYNC. Although, they only sang a few songs, it was better than having the silly boy bands they have now perform even one song. Ending the show was Katy Perry who lip-synced to her new song and jumped around in a tiny sports bra. All in all, a decent way to spend 2 and a half hours. Before the show, they aired the red carpet. The best and worst dressers were all there posing for the bright cameras. Let’s begin!

Celebrity Inspired Makeup~ Selena Gomez

  

Selena Gomez’s song “Come and Get It” is at the top of the charts and Selena looks absolutely gorgeous in her video. This fast-beat song pairs well with the sultry eye and red lips that Selena wears throughout the video. Someone actually requested that I do a celebrity inspired makeup tutorial, so if you have any preferences be sure to comment your desire below. This will explain her eye, face, and lips. Let’s begin!

 To begin with the face, prime your whole face with Mac Prep + Prime. Using a foundation brush, blend Revlon Colorstay Foundation all over for an even tone. Apply concealer to under-eye areas and any red spots or blemishes. Brush a translucent Covergirl Loose Powder evenly across your face. This process will ensure that you will have the even and flawless look of Selena’s. Sweep Hot Mama by The Balm across the cheekbones with an angled blush brush. As you can see above, she doesn’t have a pinkish cheek, so apply Solar Riche by MAC into the blush and Gentle by MAC for the highlight. This will give a warm, earthy cheek tone. I filled in my brows to be thicker like Selena’s with the Brow Bar.

Now on to the eyes! Apply Urban Decay Eyeshadow Potion to my eyelids to prime them. Brush Copper Craze by Maybelline into the corners of the eyes and onto the middle of the lid. Now apply Half Baked from the Naked Palette into the inner corner of the eye. If you want to wet your brush while you apply this gold it will make it stand out more. With a smaller brush, sweep dark horse from the Naked Palette into the crease and blend it out. Taking an angled brush, slowly blend Black out into the deepest part of the crease. Use any light shadow and highlight the brow bone and clean up any stray eye shadow. Using a thick black pencil, line the water line and smudge it out onto the lower lash line. I prefer using Smolder by MAC, but any thick pencil will do. Apply a gel eye liner onto the upper lash line, and don’t wing it out. My false lashes are 105 by Ardel and I used Falsies mascara over them afterwards and onto my bottom lashes.

Finally, lips! I am using Ruby Woo by MAC. This lipstick is very matte, so I suggest exfoliating previously and wearing lip balm before applying. If you do make a mistake, then you can go over that with a concealer brush. And that’s it! I will try and do celebrity inspired looks in the future.
