Celebrity Makeup Artist Fiona Stiles did the makeup for the beautiful Nikki Reed at the Breaking Dawn premiere earlier this week.
"Nikki's dress had a bit of a Grecian feel so we went for a clean, elegant look. Too much color would feel over the top. I focused on luminous skin that felt effortless, with a subtle hint of color on the eyes.
The Look: For the skin I prepped with Yonka's moisturizer and then mixed Tom Ford Beauty Traceless Foundation in "Natural" with a little Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint in Golden so that her skin would have a soft, luminous glow. I always use the Beauty Blender to blend out the foundation. I can't work without it, it blends makeup so well. For the cheeks I used a touch of Inglot cream blush in #83 for a little soft warmth, applying out with my fingers and blending it out with a brush, and Benefit "Sun Beam" highlighter on the cheekbones and bridge of the nose for a pretty sheen. I set the base and blush with a light dusting of COVERGIRL Professional Loose Powder in Translucent Medium.
For the eyes I used COVERGIRL Smoky ShadowBlast (the Lavender side of Silver Sky) on the lid and a bit under the lower lashes with a bit of the bronze side of the Smoky ShadowBlast in Bronze Fire. I applied it with a brush to keep the lines soft and undefined. I popped a bit of the gold Sun Beam highlighter over the cream shadow to add extra luminosity. Afterwards I gave the lashes a good squeeze with an eyelash curler and put three coats of COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume mascara in Black on the top and two on the bottom.
