Breakdown: Jesy Nelson’s National Television Awards Look


Little Mix star, Jesy Nelson stunned viewers at the National Television Awards, where she was nominated for the Factual Award for her BBC Three documentary Jesy Nelson: Odd One Out. 

Professional makeup artist, Adam Burrell, who works with Jennifer Hudson, Ava DuVernay, Oprah Winfrey, Winnie Harlow, Little Mix, Sienna Miller, Paloma Faith and Gayle King, gives us a breakdown of Jesy’s incredible look below:

Pigment Foundation Sticks in Sand and Tan (£25.00)

I used Pigment Foundation Sticks in Sand and Tan (£25.00). I used the lighter in the centre and the darker at the edges. Jesy doesn’t like a lot of coverage so I just applied a sheer layer. 

I brightened the under eye using Seamless Concealer in Beige (£22.00). 

For a glowing look, I like to use cream contour so I applied Multi Use Cream Contour Palette (£33.50) to chisel and carve the face, buffing it in to give a natural finish. For a glowing blush, I used Sheer Blush in Cheeky Coral (£18.00).  

For a fluffy brow, I brushed the brows up and set them into place using Brow Silk before applying Sculpt + Boost Eyebrow Cushion in Medium (£24.00) where needed, mostly to define the arch and tip. 

As a base for this bronzed, sunset inspired eye I used Chrome Flash Eye Pot in Cosmic (£19.00) all over the lid. From the Sunset To Sunrise Eyeshadow Palette (£45.00), I then applied Coral Reef over the top, then diffused Tequila Sunrise through the socket before deepening with Summer Glow, with a pop of Heatwave in the centre and Havana around the tear duct. 

I added a final glow using Multi-Glow in Sahara (£26.00). 

For an all over body glow I used my favourite Prep Set Glow Bronze Water Mist (£26.00).
