Get the Deets on Nikki Reed’s ‘Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2′ Red Carpet Style
Nikki Reed owned the red carpet at the ‘Twilight’ premiere in LA. Here’s how you can get the look!
Nikki Reed looked ravishing at the Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere the other night in LA. She wore Amrapali diamond earrings and a gray strapless gown with metallic accents. Her makeup was flawless, too!
Nikki hired Nyx Cosmetics Celebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles to ensure she’d look amaze under the bright lights. Stiles started off with applying NYX HD Studio Photogenic Foundation in Warm Sand with a brush on the bridge of her nose, forehead, cheeks and chin. Then Fiona took a Beauty Blender (it’s a makeup sponge) and smoothed out the foundation all over Nikki’s face, creating a sheer, natural look. Then she applied NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand in Medium where needed, and finished it off with NYX HD Studio Photogenic Finishing Powder.
For Nikki’s cheeks, Fiona subtly contoured her cheeks with NYX Highlight and Contour Powder just under the cheekbones. “I have been into very subtle contouring lately…and the key is subtle,” noted in a press releas Stiles. “The trick is using a very soft brush and just a touch of product. It’s easier to build than take away!” Stiles then dabbed NYX Stick Blush in Hibiscus onto the apples of her cheeks.
Nikki’s eyes were glam. Fiona applied NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Slate from Reed’s lash line just above the crease and below the bottom lashes, pressing it in and blending with her fingers. She then swept a light coat of NYX Single Eye Shadow in Sensual over the lid and then added NYX Slim Eye Pencil in Taupe to the waterline to create a sultry finish, without closing the eye. A few NYX Fabulous Lashes in Flare Lash Medium were then added to create fullness and length and then three coats of NYX Fly With Me Mascara were applied to Reed’s well curled upper lashes and two coats to the bottom lashes. To finish the look, Stiles filled in Reed’s brows with just a touch of the NYX Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown.
To balance the dark eyes, Fiona applied NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss in Tanned.
