Millie Bobby Brown's make-up artist played on her youth for MTV look

Gianpaolo Ceciliato was behind 13-year-old Millie Bobby Brown's MTV Movie & TV Awards look.

Millie Bobby Brown wanted a very simple beauty look for the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The Stranger Things star may only be 13, but she has managed to take the fashion world by storm since the hit Netflix show first aired last year.

For MTV's latest awards show, held on Sunday night (07May17), Millie donned a white Calvin Klein By Appointment shift dress teamed with matching cowboy boots. To match her cute ensemble, she chose to have her short hair slicked back, while her make-up look was created using Laura Mercier products.

"I wanted Millie's make-up look to mirror her youthfulness and energetic nature. To achieve this, I created a look that was as pure and simple as her natural beauty," celebrity make-up artist Gianpaolo Ceciliato told Cover Media.

Gianpaolo prepped the star's skin with the brand's Infusion de Rose Nourishing Oil, before using a tinted moisturiser all over and translucent setting powder and foundation on Millie's hairline and cheek bones to create a "soft contoured look". Blush and illuminator were added to finish the skin.

For Millie's eyes, Gianpaolo went for a soft smoky look, using pewter and grey eyeshadow shades, and adding a "pop of light" with a lighter hue in the corners of her eyes. Two coats of mascara were then applied to curled lashes, and a brow pencil and brow gel kept her eyebrows looking defined all night.

A sweep of neutral coloured lipstick, Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour in Sensual, was the finishing touch.

It wasn't just Millie's look that was a winner on Sunday; the young star also went home with the Best Actor award for her role as supernatural Eleven in Stranger Things.
