Get the Look: Kristin Cavallari at The Hills Finale

The Hills has ended, and last night the cast celebrated the final episode of the popular show at The Roosevelt hotel in Hollywood. Carlene K, Kristin Cavallari’s makeup artist, shares how she achieved Kristin’s look for the night:

“Kristin wore a gorgeous creme colored rhinestone mini dress, so I wanted her makeup to Shine like her dress” – Carlene K

Get the Look:

1. “I started out with MAKE UP FOR EVER Face and Body Foundation to even out her skin tone. The great thing about this foundation is that you can achieve light or heavy coverage by layering it. Yet it will never look cakey and heavy.”

2. “I then filled in her eyebrows with my favorite new product. SMASHBOX Brow Tech To Go. Its an angle shaped brow pencil, and on the other end has a clear brow gel to hold the eye brows in place.”

3. “On Kristin’s eyes I wanted to do an earthy smokey eye, with no black. I framed the entire eye with MAC Saddle Eyeshadow. Blended it softly into her crease, and softly underneath her eye as well. Its important when doing a smokey look, to take a color like this and blend it at the edges of a dark color, that’s how you achieve a blended smokey look and not a hard line.”

4. “I then took on of my new favorite color, NARS Galapagos Eyeshadow, A deep brown with gold glitter. I smoked her lash line all the way around. I shaded the corners of her eye lid and blended Galapagos into her crease as well. This color is a Must Have and is amazing for Smokey Eyes.”

5. “I lined Kristin’s eye pretty heavily with URBAN DECAY Bourbon 24/7 Eye pencil. I smudged it across her top lash line, into the corner and on her inner rim.”

6. “I used URBAN DECAY Half Baked Eye Shadow on her inner corners to highlight her eyes and blended it onto her eyelid. This gives a beautiful golden glow to the whole eye.”

7. “I finished the eye of course with great lashes. I used ARDELL “Fairies”, and SMASHBOX Hyperlash Mascara

8. “To give her that golden glow, I used URBAN DECAY Baked Bronzer on her forehead, cheeks, nose and chin.”

9. “I used MAC Golden Bronze Loose Shimmer powder, on her cheekbones and blended it lightly onto her cheeks.”

10. “For Kristins sexy nude pout, I used URBAN DECAY Wallflower 24/7 lip pencil and MAC Cherish lipstick, the perfect every day nude lipstick.”

11. “To finish the entire look. of course I used CARLENE K Shine Bronzer all over her body. “
