Get the Look: Nikki Reed at the Breaking Dawn Part 2 Premiere

I can't believe that it's over.  I did Nikki's makeup for all five of the Twilight movie premieres, and this was the very last one.  Well, we saved the best for last.  Nikki looked like a true silver screen star in her strapless Versace dress, pulled back hair and sultry makeup.  Here's how to get her look.

Using a foundation brush I swiped foundation along the bridge of her nose, cheeks, chin and forehead and used a Beauty Blender to blend the color to the outer edges of her face.  After using concealer where needed, I dusted on a bit of loose powder, setting the foundation.  I have really been loving doing contour lately, so I used a little contour powder under the cheekbones.  They key is to have a light hand.  When done right it gives a beautiful, softly sculpted look to the face.  Another trick is to add a bit of color to the cheek so there's still life to the skin.  I added a touch of a peach blush just to add that warmth to the skin.

Nikki has amazing brows, so I do very little to them, just fill them in here and there and then set them in place with a gel.  For the eyes I used a soft wash color from a chubby pencil from just above the crease to the lash line, and under the lower lashes as well.  Then I dusted on a slightly warmer color so it wouldn't look too metallic.  I used a taupe pencil on the waterline of the eyes to add that sultry look.  The taupe doesn't close up the eye black does so it still feels soft, but sexy.  I curled the lashes really well, added a few individual lashes for fullness and length and then did 3 coats of mascara on top and two on the bottom.

I generally prefer to focus on one feature; lips or eyes, and this was no exception.  A warm nude color on the mouth completed the look without competing with the eyes.
