Last weekend here in Kauai, Janey invited four of her friends over for a ‘Kids Choice Awards Sleepover Party.’
The five girls spent the afternoon swimming in the neighborhood pool before settling down in the living room for an hour or so of non-stop SCREAMING. (Thank you Nickelodeon for keeping the KCA’s short and sweet!)
It’s been a long while since I was 7 years old, but OHMYGOD the way these girls are infatuated with Justin Bieber. I can’t even begin to explain.
I mean, the extent of my 7-year-old pop culture experience was staying up late on Saturday nights to watch The Love Boat and Fantasy Island. If only I knew that somewhere in the future a 15 year old boy would be singing “baby, baby, baby, oh…” to little 7 year olds across the world, garnering over 49 million visits to his video on YouTube, I might have prepared myself a little better. You know, by moving to Canada, or something like that.
In addition to Justin Bieber, the girls worked themselves into a frenzy over iCarly’s Miranda Cosgrove. “She looks so pretty!” “I love her dress!” “Look at her nail polish!”
Immediately following the show, the girls dug into my makeup stash and tried to re-create Miranda’s look.
“Miranda has such beautiful skin so I wanted to keep her make-up soft but playful,” said Coleen Campbell-Olwell, who created her look for the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. Using the following steps, Campbell-Olwell illustrates how to create her fresh faced look:
For Miranda, I started with Neutrogena Skin Clearing Oil Free Foundation in Natural Ivory.
To control shine, I dusted Neutrogena SkinClearing Mineral Powder in Classic Ivory (a favorite of mine!) over her skin .
I wanted Miranda’s eyes to “pop” so I swept Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Quad in Vintage Wine, it is so easy to use as each color is labeled to show you where to place it on the eye. A great tip is too blend purple shadow along the bottom lash line instead of a dark liner as it keeps it soft and opens the eye.
I blended Neutrogena Nourishing Eyeliner in Brown Sugar along the top eyelash line. I finished the eye with two coats of Neutrogena Healthy Lengths Mascara in Black Brown…it really lengthens your lashes!
I used Neutrogena Healthy Skin Custom Glow blush in Berry Glow, one side has a soft shimmery bronzer for contouring the cheekbones and the other side has a Berry Blush for the apples.
I wanted a soft petal pink but with a shine, so I used Neutrogena MoistureShine Lipstick in Sheer Luck SPF 20.
