Find out how you can copy Miley Cyrus’s ‘Wrecking Ball’ makeup look featuring soft eye makeup, radiant skin and bold red lips!
Miley Cyrus Makeup: Face
Create a flawless base with a medium coverage foundation and work it into the skin. Use an eyeshadow primer on the upper and lower eyelids, then set the base with loose powder.
Miley Cyrus Makeup: Eyes
Apply a white shimmer eyeshadow on the entire mobile lid. Use a flat eyeshadow brush and a tapping motion to pack on the color.
Switch to a semi-firm rounded brush and work a medium brown eyeshadow into the crease to define it. Blend it with a fluffy brush until you can’t see any harsh lines.
Apply a metallic bronze eyeshadow on the outer half of the upper eyelid. Use an angled brush or small precision brush and a dark brown eyeshadow to define the outer corner of the eye which you will extend into a flick.
Add depth to the eyes and create the illusion of fuller lashes by defining the lash line with a matte black eyeshadow. Extend the line into a flick and connect it to the lower lashes.
Highlight the area under the eyebrows by tracing a line with an ivory pencil and blend.
In case your eyes are a bit close together, just like Miley’s, use the pencil in the inner corners which will open up the eyes and make them look further appart.
Add more depth to the eyes by tracing a brown eyeliner pencil on the water line and soften it by smudging it with a small stiff brush. Skip this step if you want to get the exact makeup worn by Miley in her recent music videos.
Switch to the blending brush and run it down the lower lid for a smokey eye effect. Go back to the area under the eyebrows with an ivory pencil and blend.
Finish off the eye makeup and apply several layers of mascara until you get long and thick lashes, or apply a pair of false lashes.
Miley Cyrus Makeup: Cheeks
Miley has an oval face shape with a pointy chin, therefore we will use a matte bronzer on the sides of the face to elongate it. Use a concealer or highlighter a few shades lighter than your skin on the area under the eyes to mimic Miley’s radiant glow. Add a touch of pink blush and highlighter to the apples of the cheeks.
Miley Cyrus Makeup: Lips
Line and fill in the lips with a red lip liner. Apply concealer around the lips to get rid of the darkness around the mouth and make your lips fuller. Blend well with a concealer brush.
