Get The Look: Carly Rae Jepsen at the American Music Awards 2012

By  November 19, 2012

Carly Rae Jepsen won big at last night’s American Music Awards. Not only did the “Call Me Maybe” crooner give a great performance and win Best New Artist at the 40th annual ceremony, she racked up beauty points too. Celebrity makeup artist Tina Turnbrow created a feminine makeup look that complemented the singer’s fresh style, while highlighting her sexy edge. Turnbrow gave us a step-by-step guide to recreate Jepsen’s flirty-meets-fierce look that matched her dress, using Votre Vu cosmetics that’s easy enough for you to achieve day-to-day.

Starting with a clean face, prep your skin with the Votre Vu Attentive Serum Delicat Pour Le Visage, followed by the Attentive Crème du Jour to create a moisturized base for your foundation. Then, shift your attention to the eyes, using the Lingerie Pour Le Yeux as a primer to give your eye shadow that extra pop. Swipe a gold, shimmery shadow over your eyelids (like this one from Stila) and line your eyes with the Votre Vu Le Joli Crayon in Charbon for a smoky, sultry effect. You can emphasize this look by using a sponge to smudge the liner for a cat-eye effect, and then defining with a liquid black eyeliner. Finish off the eyes with the Votre Vu Eiffel Power Mascara before grabbing the double duty Vu-On Rouge Cheek and Lip Tint in Bouquet Rose. This 2-in-1 treat adds the perfect amount of color to the cheeks without overpowering the strong eye, while using it on lips will give a nude finish for a pretty pink pout. Skip the setting powder, and instead, opt for the Votre Vu À Votre Santé, a mist that doubles as a setting spray for a soft, dewy finish. This look will make all the boys call you, no maybe needed.
