You’ve seen her in the new show Dumplin’ with Jennifer Aniston, but you might not have recognized Dove Cameron on the Oscars Red Carpet last night.

Gone was the blonde ‘Barbie Doll’ and in it’s place was a young, sophisticated beauty, thanks to Celebrity makeup artist Melissa Hernandez.

We asked her how she created the glowing look for the rising star.To start with, she used products from the vegan and cruelty-free beauty brand, Nanacoco Professional, which is known for its highly pigmented colors.

FACE:  I started off Dove’s look using @nanacocobeauty’s gorgeous Airfair Brushes, which are launching next month! Using the Airfair Liquid Foundation Brush I applied @ctilburymakeup light wonder foundation to Dove’s face for a flawless look.

Next I used the Nanacoco Professional’s super-hydrating HD cover concealer for color correcting, and the Nanacoco HD powder in cool beige to blur any minor imperfection as I used a lighter-coverage foundation. 

Nanacoco’s contouring & strobing palette in Light Pale was my go-to for brining structure and glow into Dove’s face. The dark and light matte shades in the palette allowed me to draw a lot of contrast for a more-striking look. The Airfair Highlighter Brush was perfect for applying the strong lines needed to achieve this look.

I finished off Dove’ face with HD Pressed Blush in Natural Pink + @weleda_usa skin food on the high points of the face for a luscious glow.

EYES: For a glossy effect, I wanted to try something fun – I applied a wash of Nanacoco’s Shimmertallics Metallic lip gloss in Frosted Glaze onto Dove’s lids. It’s a really pretty almost snow color, perfect to make Dove’s blue eyes pop. It was simple but impactful. To complete the eyes I then applied a coat of Outlash Dramatic Length Mascara.

BROWSBrowstylers Micro Pencil in Taupe + Browstylers Brow Mascara in Blonde for a feathered effect. The combo of the two brow products allowed for a shapely and full yet natural.  

LIPS: Last but not least, I applied a touch of Nanacoco’s Lipfinity Matte Lip Creme in the shade BubblegumPop using my finger to Layer the brand’s GlitznGloss in Mocha Madness overtop for an eye-catching pout.

DO try this look at home!
