Behind the scenes for Kurv Magazine shoot with Miranda Cosgrove

Last Friday I had the pleasure of working with actress/singer Miranda Cosgrove who stars as iCarly on Nickelodean for the December issue of Australia's Kurv Magazine.  Photographer Heidi Gibbs,  wanted to go for an edgy rock and roll feel for the shoot, and I wanted Miranda's makeup to reflect that. Here is the low-down of how to get her look...

On Miranda's Face I mixed Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer in Ivory to Fair, and Neutrogena Skin Glow Sheers in Ivory to Fair to give her skin a gorgeous sheen and radiance, without looking like she was wearing tons of foundation.

I then dabbed Neutrogena Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector in Fair on her cheekbones, under her brow bone, and on the inner corners of her eyes as a light reflecting highlighter.

Miranda rocked a beautiful smokey eye, which I created by applying Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Quad in Blue Smoke to top and bottom lids to add depth and density. I lined her eyes with Neutrogena Nourishing Eyeliner in Cosmic Black, and swept Neutrogena Healthy Lengths Mascara Waterproof in Black on her lashes. I then used a small angle brush and dark shadow to fill in between the lashes, and give them extra definition. A soft and subtle way to pump up your lashline!

On Miranda's cheeks,  I swept Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Blush in Natural Apricot to give them a subtle peachy glow, and I finished her look by slicking Neutrogena Moisture Shine Lipstick in Caramel Kiss on her lips, and topping it with Moisture Shine Gloss in Copper Power to give her them a Matte/Nude feel. Gorgeous!!


  1. the eye look is lovely but I'm not so much into brown lips... maybe I would choose a peachy shade... but this is not a chriticism, it's only amatter of personal taste :)so, well done!

  2. miranda is my idol, you're so lucky you had the chance to work with her!!!!!!
