How to Do Your Makeup Like Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa Hudgens Makeup
Key to the Vanessa Hudgens makeup look are intensely smoky eyes, pale lips, soft apricot cheeks and super matte foundation. Her cherubic face is never overwhelmed with color, instead she opts for a firecely neutral, but nonetheless dramatic, look. Herein, a few tricks for copying Vanessa's make up. You can try on this look by uploading a photo to our virtual makeup and hair studio.

Getting luminous skin like Vanessa is easy when you rely on this sneaky pro trick: use a fluffy but firm kabuki brush (3- to 5-inches in diameter) to get your most flawless coverage ever. Use it as you would a foundation brush, but use circular motions to apply liquid foundation to your skin, and don't forget to clean the brush with shampoo after each use.

Use a yellow-based concealer to hide imperfections, such as dark circles, around the eyes. If you like a matte makeup look like Vanessa Hudgens, but your skin doesn't require a lot of coverage, opt for a sheer formula and dust it with loose, translucent powder. Keep blotting papers in your purse at all times to keep shine at bay.

Vanessa's cherubic cheeks are always understated, so forgo bold color for a soft apricot. Your lip color should also stay soft and barely-there. Try a sheer pink or neutral color that's close to your skin tone. Contrast matte foundation with a dab of juicy, delectable gloss.

Smoky eyes are the focal point of Vanessa Hudgens' face: reach for shades of black, white and charcoal grey. Line your lashes with  black liner (we like Rock & Republic's Bound Gel Eyeliner in Smut) and trace the line with a wet, flat-head eyeliner brush dipped in black eye shadow.

Achieving a smoky effect is easy: use a Q-tip to smudge out the color. Finish by sweeping dove grey eye shadow onto the lid, taking care to blend it so that the color softly fades at the crease, instead of stopping abruptly. Finish by highlighting your brow bone with a shimmery white eye shadow. --Stephanie Simons

it's when you line the water line (inside the lashes) instead of the lash line area. This comment has been removed.

It looks like she tight lined her eyes to give it more definition without looking like she's wearing a ton of eye makeup. This comment has been removed.
