How to achieve Reese’s MTV Movie Awards look

by

It is no secret that Reese Witherspoon always looks gorgeous, but we particularly adored her make-up look for the 2015 MTV Movie Awards on April 12. 

Reese's make-up artist, Molly Stern, has shared the top tips and beauty secrets for getting her red carpet ready and we cannot wait to try them out ourselves. 

Molly said: "For tonight's look I wanted the focus to be on Reese's eyes. By keeping her skin looking super fresh and natural, and the lips bright but sheer, I was able to keep the attention on her smoldering liner and bright eye color."

She began by hydrating her skin with Natura Bisse C+C Vitamin Complex Mist and Kiehl's Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence, which is launching in July 2015. She then created a base to start from by applying Kiehl's Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate. 

For some areas she applied Chantecaille Rose de Mai Face Oil and mixed medium and light shades of Kiehl's Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream in order to let her own flawless skin show. 

Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Embrace was used to shape Reese's bone structure and she then added colour to the apples of her cheeks only using Christopher Kane for NARS in Starscape.

​For creating the area she wanted to mainly focus on, Reese's eyes, she based her lids with Dior Fusion Mono Eyeshadow in Taupe and applied NARS Bengali matte eyeshadow to her lash line. The upper and lower eye line was lined by smudging Makeup Forever Aqua Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in Star Black 1L. Her lashes were then curled with Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler and applied DiorShow Iconic Overcurl Mascara in Black. The result being that her eyes were quite smokey and striking.

Reese's lips were based in Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour in Coral Reef and then made to shine by applying ColourPop Hyper Glossy Lippie Stix in Juicy.
