Miley Cyrus is not a little girl anymore and the no-longer-teenage recording artist certainly proved it at this past weekend’s 2013 Teen Choice Awards. In a lingerie-inspired Saint Laurent look, her beauty team completed her punk-rock vibe with sexy makeup and high-fashion hair. Here’s how:
Celebrity makeup artist Denika Bedrossian wanted to create a “sultry look” to compliment Miley’s black leather and sheer netting dress. She paired a soft lip color with dark eyes and coated the lashes with lots of black Lancôme Hypnôse Drama Mascara ($27).
First, she layered a bronzy gray eye shadow on the upper lid and buffed to the crease. Next, she applied black eyeliner to the upper lash line and bottom water line and blended well. Bedrossian then highlighted the cheekbones and nose with Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer #2 ($52) and contoured the cheeks with Giorgio Armani Sheer Blush in #5 ($44). The look was finished with a peach-tinted lip achieved by Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick ($32) in #100 and #303. “#100 was the main color and #303 was applied in the middle for a peachy tint,” says Bedrossian.
Celebrity hairstylist Brant Mayfield created Miley’s hairstyle. “Miley has her finger on the pulse of the next fashion movement while always paying homage to the classics,” says Mayfield. “My inspiration with Miley ranges from Céline to vintage Versace to signature Coco Chanel. I love working with her because her style is always evolving and it keeps me on my toes.”
Mayfield started off by applying a small amount of René Furterer OKARA light activating leave-in fluid to towel-dried hair. Next, he distributed René Furterer VOLUMEA volumizing foam from scalp to ends and brushed through to evenly distribute the product. Afterwards, Mayfield blow-dried the hair. “I make sure to round the left side so I can get the height and shape over to the right. As I move further to the right I begin to blow the hair straight to create the asymmetric silhouette,” he explains.
After, he backcombed sections from the flipped left side so it stayed in place. Mayfield then worked a dime-sized amount of René Furterer Modeling Paste into the top of hair, avoiding the root, to create texture and to hold the shape. He lightly sprayed the left backcombed root section with dry shampoo to help build the base and keep the fullness throughout the night.
Finally, René Furterer VEGETAL Finishing Spray was used to set the hair. Once set, one pump of René Furterer KARITÉ leave-in repairing serum was used to smooth out the ends, tame fly-aways and to add movement to the style.
