When we reached out to Aimee Teegarden's publicist to find out who did the actress' hair and makeup for Teen Vogue's Young Hollywood Party, we got an unexpected response: "She did it herself!" So we went to the source. Turns out the Friday Night Lights actress wasn't into makeup growing up-"I was always a tomboy," she says-but a few years of red carpets and award shows have turned her into quite the makeup artist. Here, she breaks down the rosy look above.Skin
To start, Teegarden mimicked her daily skincare routine: "I use Decleor Paris Hydra Floral Flower Nectar Moisturizing Cream ($49), because it's really clean and fragrance free, and then I put SkinCeuticals Eye Balm ($79) on underneath my eyes. I'm not sure how it ended up in my house, but I've been using it ever since!" Then she swept Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 ($43) all over her face and used a combination of M.A.C. Select Moisture Cover ($18) in NW25 and L'Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Concealer ($10) in Fair Light Neutral underneath her eyes before finishing her skin with Young Blood Mineral Rice Setting Powder ($24).
"I ended up using Jane Iredale So Bronze Bronzing Powder ($42) in So-Bronze 3," Teegarden said of her pink cheeks. "It's a bronzing powder on one side and pink blush on the other, so I used both and then layered on another pink blush from Young Blood." (Though she didn't know the name, it looks like Crushed Mineral Blush ($22) in Tulip.)
Teegarden's "de-potted" all of her eye shadows, so she couldn't tell us the exact colors she used to build her sparkling, smoky eye, but they're all Shadow Pressed Individual Eyeshadows ($22) from Young Blood, "because I like the way their shadows last," she said. To start, she spread a light brown shadow across the lid followed by a purple shade in the crease, and a shimmering yellow in the corner of her eye "to brighten up the area."
Teegarden lined her upper inner eye with Rimmel London Exaggerate Waterproof Eyedefiner ($6) in Noir. "I normally love using false lashes," she said. "But I didn't have time so I used Maybelline Volum' Express The Falsies Mascara ($6) in Black Drama." She did three coats on the bottom and top lashes.
"On my lips I just used some Benefit Rush Hour ($22)," Teegarden said. The lip and cheek balm is being phased out, but you can't go wrong with the brand's other dual-purpose star, Benetint ($29).
The actress says her hair is "really thin," so Teegarden preps her wet locks with Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Style Triple Action Volume Hair Mousse ($4) and Bumble and bumble Surf Spray ($24) "to give it some texture and body." For this look, she divided it into three sections and dried it from bottom to top before using a curling iron to get what she calls, "crazy Barbie pageant curls." Once her hair cooled, she ran her fingers through it and pulled it back into a loose ponytail. "I threw on some Oscar Blandi Lacca Hairspray ($25) for volume and shine," she said. "I guess I really like to mix my products!"
