We’re a little jealous of Nikki Reed, and not just because she got an invite to the release party for Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience and we didn’t. It’s her bold--but still feminine--beauty look that has us eyeing (or should we say, smokey eyeing) her. “I really wanted to create something that complimented her tousled ‘do,” explained makeup artist and European Wax Center ambassador Marina Gravani, who was behind the actress’ look. Whether or not you’re rocking wavy tresses, it’s actually surprisingly easy to raid Reed’s makeup routine. Here’s what Gravani suggests: GLOW IT: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in Illuminating Golden Radiance - $43
Get a not-too-obvious glow by using a tinted moisturizer as your bronzer--and then set with foundation if you need the added coverage. SHADE IT: Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Emerveille - $36
With a brush, apply the shimmery bronze shadow across your entire eyelid, before applying a not-to-thick line with Laura Mercier’s Caviar Eye Stick Color.
FRAME IT: European Wax Center Brow Powder in Venice
Forget bleached or ultra-thin brows--this spring it’s all about going big. If you’ve over-tweezed, a powder is great for filling in and making your arches look fuller than they actually are. PINK IT: Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Gracile - $34
To balance out the darker, bold eye, go with a slightly sheer pink. This Chanel one Gravani used looks good on most skin tones.
