Needless to say, we’re obsessed with Zendaya. The girls’ got style and business chops to boot, and killer beauty savvy. Last night at the 2015 BET Awards, the 18-year-old recording artists was glowing—literally. And, while we loved the Swarovski crystal-studded shirtdress, what we are terribly curious about—and a little envious of—is her skin! Makeup artist, Allan Avendaño, focused on flawless skin and played up Zendaya’s model-esque features using pastel tones to compliment her dazzling dress. The end result of the overall look was iridescent and fell somewhere in between fairy princess and a luminous jewel.
For glowing sun kissed skin, make-up artist, Allan Avendaño, applied NKD SKN 1 Day Bronzing Tinted Lotion in Medium to clean skin using a tanning mitt. He completed the look with Vita Liberata “Passionflower and Argan Dry Oil in SPF 50” to “give skin protection and a stunning dewy radiance.”
Avendaño created a perfect balance of retro and modern beauty by juxtaposing full brows against luxe lashes and romantic lavender-accented smokey eyes diffusing shades of purple, blue and plum. To mimic the luminosity of the dress, he played up her features by sculpting and highlighting her high cheekbones and her cupids bow. For an ethereal added glow, a pink shimmer shadow was applied to the inner corner of her eyes in addition to a beige shimmer along her lower lash line along with feathery individual lashes topped with three coats of Sephora Collection Full Action Extreme Effects Mascara. He completed the look with matte lips in a muted sandy pink.
