Jessica Biel's Brit Award make-up artist has shared all the details on the actress's latest awards look…

Have you evver wondered how the stars get their flawless red carpet beauty looks? Well you're in luck. As the A-list recover from Brit Awards madness, we quizzed the lovely lady responsible for Jessica Biel's british award show style.

Ahead of the ceremony, where the newly crowned Mrs Timberlake watched her hubby take to the stage, the actress carefully planned out her red carpet make-up look with beauty expert Amanda Bell.


'Jessica and I had a good chat about the kind of look we thought would be great for the Brits, taking inspiration from the striking cobalt blue Tom Ford dress she was due to wear,' Amanda told us.

'Jessica wanted more of a fair and radiant English rose look, rather than anything bronzed and tanned, with soft, sheeny definition on the eyes and a statement lip to keep the look young and fresh.

'Texture was key to creating the finished look too, where I wanted the makeup to almost merge with Jessica’s skin so it looked luminous and natural.'

Revealing that actress's skin is in 'great shape,' Amanda said: 'To create Jessica’s look I started by preparing her skin. She had already applied a moisturiser but no eye treatment so I used a little Lancome Visionnaire round the eyes to smooth the texture and then Hydrazen Yeux to plump out any dehydration lines.

She followed with a Shu Uemura brightening under base mousse, Armani Luminous Silk Pressed powder, a pinky peach blush from Arbonne, Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick and Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder, for ' beautiful, soft focus finish'.

'For the eyes, we decided upon a softly defined look, with more sheen than colour, Amanda explained.

'I applied Shu Uemura pressed powder eye shadow in Me Silver a super fine layer of copper MAC eye shadow, followed by MAC pigment in Naked to give the colour more depth.'

She added: 'I have many much loved brushes but I also use finger application a lot to create a soft, smudgy glow rather than a more defined look.

'A little gel liner in a smoky dark brown pressed into the lash line and a couple of coats of a volumising black mascara added that last bit of definition and finished her eyes perfectly.'

Finally, Amanda and Jessica chose a high impact lip to finish the look.

'I wanted the texture to play a big part in how the colour looked so I chose a full colour, light textured lipstick, Lancome Rouge in Love,' Amanda reveals.

'I pressed the lipstick on with my finger, contoured the shape with a lip brush, then applied a true red liner pencil to make the lips look even fuller. Finally, I pressed a contrasting contrasting orange shade onto the centre of the lips and added a find dusting of powder to matt down the texture'.

Et voila! Red carpet ready, and looking gorgeous.
