Bella Thorne was the epitome of chic at the 2012 NCLR ALMA Awards. With a soft, feminine updo and a fresh beauty look by Tonya Brewer for Dew Beauty Agency, this Cuban estrella worked the red carpet in an awesome dress of the same hue. Ready to steal her beauty look? Here's how:
"Bella's look was inspired by the fall trend of super-dewy skin with a berry kissed lip," says Brewer.
"We used Yves Saint Laurent 'Touche Éclat' Foundation SPF19. This foundation is really sheer with just the right amount of coverage. To apply the foundation I used the Beauty Blender sponge which I highly recommend to achieve a flawless finish. A little known trick is to dampen the Beauty Blender with a little bit of water. This allows the foundation to glide on easily.
To contour, I used Nars Sheer Glow Liquid Foundation in a tone quite a few shades darker than Bella's -- just on her temples, cheekbones and jaw line. To set her skin I lightly dusted her T-zone with Chanel Natural Finish Loose Powder.
For Bella's cheeks I buffed in a soft pink blush, MAC Office Hours' Pro Longwear Blush in Stay Pretty. This blush adds just the right amount of color.
On Bella's eyes we kept it really simple. I rimmed her eyes with MAC Teddy Eye Kohl and then smudged it out with Tan Pigment also MAC, once the shadow was finished we applied lots of Smoky Lash mascara by Make Up Forever.
To top it all off we wanted to add a pop of color to the lips so we used Yves Saint Laurent 'Rouge Volupté' Lipstick in Red Taboo, which is a great glossy red. This lipstick adds just the right amount of color and I highly recommend it if you are trying red for the first time."
Two Big Takeaways:
To get the dewy skin look, apply your foundation with a Beauty Blender sponge, which creates an airbrushed look and will help you blend your foundation effortlessly.
Nervous about a bold lip? Try a glossy or sheer lipstick which will give you the color without the intensity.
"Next time you are styling you hair try adding some jewelry. Once Bella's hair was styled I loosely pinned in a silver necklace. This is an easy and inexpensive way to dress up your locks and add some texture!" says Brewer
