Get the Look: Jessica Alba's Springtime Shimmer

There’s nothing that Jessica Alba excels at more than sporting a fresh-faced glow. Whether she’s getting snapped by paparazzi in Los Angeles or promoting her eco-friendly home goods line, The Honest Company, she always looks sun-kissed and naturally sensational.

At the March 23rd Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards, Avon Global Celebrity Makeup Artist Lauren Anderson was inspired by the teal and metallic tones in Jessica’s dress, and gave the star a soft, glowing makeup look accented with one bright pop of color—a perfect choice for spring.

Anderson allowed Jessica’s radiance to shine through by applying Avon Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Liquid Foundation ($11, Avon.com), which evens skin tone while providing a natural finish, then she touched up imperfections using Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer ($70, Neiman Marcus). A mix of Lorac TANtalizer Baked Bronzer ($32, Ulta.com) in the hollows of the cheeks and Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Tumulte ($43, Nordstrom.com) on the cheekbones provided just the right amount of contour and definition.

Anderson complemented the teal in Jessica’s dress by using Avon Glimmersticks in Aqua Flash ($7, Avon.com) to create a pretty pop of color on the lids, tracing a thick line along the upper lash line. Then she readied Jessica’s eyes for the cameras with two coats of Avon SuperExtend Infinitize Mascara ($9.50, Avon.com). A bold pop of color on the eye called for a pretty, neutral lip, so Anderson applied Avon Totally Kissable Lipstick in Lovey Dovey ($8, Avon.com), a warm pinkish rose color.

On Jessica’s hair, stylist Gio Campora channeled 1990s supermodel glam with these loose, sideswept waves. To get the style at home, scrunch John Frieda Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse into wet hair and spritz with Frizz-Ease Dream Curls Curl Perfecting Spray before blow-drying with a round brush and focusing on lifting the roots near the crown. Then use a large-barrel curling iron to create haphazard spirals and mist with Frizz-Ease 100% Shine Glossing Mist for extra shine. (products $5.99 each at Drugstore.com)
