While Carly Rae Jepsen
’s breakout hit “Call Me Maybe” has become the definitive song of summer 2012, we’re calling her makeup from the Teen Choice Awards
just plain gorgeous. We love how her graphic smoky eye is balanced by her clean, dewy complexion, and an understated nude lip. “I decided to do a smoky eye to bring an element of drama to the look,” said the star’s makeup artist Desirae Cherman, who prepped Jepsen’s skin with a spritz of hydrating facial mist. To keep your colored eye shadow from falling onto your foundation, apply your eye makeup first, right after you smooth on your skincare. “I like to start with the eyes while the skin soaks in the prep products,” Cherman said. Then, follow with a medium-coverage foundation and add concealer wherever you need extra coverage, like your undereye area, or over any problem blemishes.
