Heidi Montag's Makeup Look

How-To: Heidi Montag's Letterman Makeup Look

Lord knows I'm not the biggest fan of Heidi Montag (star of The Hills), but I will say that her makeup looks stunning here outside of the Late Show studio in New York City. Her face is so smooth, and her cheekbones are looking mighty sculpted.

Heidi was there to talk about the show, her new clothing line, and of course, her (lame) boyfriend Spencer. For those of you who are looking to mimic Heidi's Letterman-show makeup, here's what to do.

  • FACE: Smooth on a medium coverage, pale foundation such as Yves Saint Laurent Perfect Touch Radiant Brush Foundation in #6, and blend. The best part about this product is that the brush is attached. Then, dust a mineral powder over the foundation, apply concealer and a little brightener around the eyes.
  • CHEEKS: Her face looks almost porcelain, so you aren't going to want to disturb it with too much color. I suggest using a light, shimmer-free, tannish-coral contouring blush like MAC in Sincere to the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards and outwards along the low side of the cheekbones. Make sure you blend well with a soft, fluffy brush. Next, add a touch of subtle, silvery highlighter along the very top of your cheekbones, to your forehead and along the top of your nose.
  • To find out about her eyes and lips,


  • EYES: The MAC #1 Fafi Eye Quad is a perfect group of shadows to help re-create Heidi's sultry eyes. Begin by blending the vanilla shade all over the lid. Then, apply the pink shadow to the top of your lids and stop at the crease. TIP: Also apply a little bit to the inner half of your lower lashes. Next, blend the medium-brown shadow in the crease adding in a dab of the darkest shade. Blend well and line your top and bottom lashes with a creamy black eyeliner pencil. Finish with false lashes and two coats of black mascara.
  • LIPS: All you really need is a creamy pale-pink lipstick and a clear gloss or a pale-pink, high-shine lip gloss like Bourjois Effet 3D High Shine Lip Gloss in Rose Idylic to achieve Heidi's pretty pout.
