The women of the 2017 Teen Choice Awards kept it cool and classy with beautiful, girly looks.  Yara Shahidi, Paris Jackson, Zendaya, Vanessa Hudgens, and Millie Bobby Brown (pictured left to right), were red carpet standouts, each demonstrating a sense of confidence and relaxed glamour.  We especially loved Paris Hilton’s make-under, and Zendaya’s perfect balance of relaxed curls and defined lips.  Viewers were shocked by the volume of “no-shows” (Miley Cyrus pulled out at the last moment, while Beyoncé, Zac Efron, Ariana Grande were simply absent) and video acceptance speeches from Bruno Mars and Gal Gadot.

Actress Sarah Hyland wowed us at the 2016 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday.  Her makeup artist, Allan Avendaño, was responsible for her edgier red carpet look!  What was his inspiration?  “I’m often asked what my inspiration is for looks I create on Sarah but for these awards Sarah was the inspiration. She’s so fun to create with. She has a chic sense of fashion but definitely won’t stick with one look when it comes to makeup” says Allan. “We both looked at the blue and red dress she chose for the Teen Choice Awards and we wanted to bring that blue color to her eyes. We based the whole makeup look on perfect skin and how we could make that blue hue the star without competing with the dress. We played around and realized that glowing skin with a subtle blue liner – that is unexpectedly placed on the outer half of the bottom lash line – would be a fun twist to the usual colored liner look.”

Chanel Iman
     Chanel Iman looked absolutely stunning at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night.  Makeup artist, Angel Merino, was inspired by her draped two-piece ensemble.  “I wanted to complete her Grecian goddess style with a glowy bronze makeup look that was still very young and fresh.”
     He began by prepping the skin with MAC Prep + Prime Fix + and PÜR™ Cosmetics Get A Lift Firming Facial Cream, creating a nice supple and lush texture – the perfect canvas for makeup.  Then he applied NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation and for an airbrushed finish, set it with PÜR™ Cosmetics 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation. “This product is amazing,” says Merino. “Because it is mineral powder, it’s not going to look cakey, it doesn’t go on heavy and gives the airbrushed finish that’s going to look great for the carpet.”  To contour and add extra glow, Merino applied PÜR™ Cosmetics Mineral Glow Bronzing Powder on the hollow of the cheeks.
     On the eyes, Merino chose the NEW PÜR™ Cosmetics Love Your Selfie 2 Palette.  Using the bronzer shade, Composition, he applied it as eyeshadow on the crease for the perfect, warm, contoured look. Then, on the lid, he chose the shimmery gold shade, Mega Pixel, before highlighting the brow bone with the Over Exposed.  For some extra pop, he lined the inner rim with Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in black and finished with PÜR™ Cosmetics Triple Threat Mascara.
     For the “bitten lip” effect, Merino used a blending brush to apply PÜR™ Cosmetics Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in FBF, and sealed it with a gloss.
