My friend and fabulous makeup artist Gita Bass posted a photo (via Facebook) of the latest look she created for Elizabeth Banks’ What to Expect When You’re Expecting premiere (Are you going to see it?) and I had to know how to copy it. Here’s the scoop she gave me — just in case you’re game for recreating it:
“I evened out her skin tone with Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 5, $59,” says Bass.
Next, she used Dior Skin Flash Radiance Booster Pen in Candlelight, $37 to highlight the areas under her eyes, along her cheekbones and down the bridge of her nose to add dimension to her face.
To define her eyes, Bass blended Chanel Illusion D’ombre in Emerveille, $36 (a peachy-golden hue) on Banks’ lids and “layered the gold shade from the Tom Ford Beauty Eye Color Quad [in Burnished Amber], $75 over the top,” says Bass. She then blended the bronze shade from the same quad into the creases of Banks’ eyes. She lined top and bottom lashlines with Laura Mercier Caviar Eye pencil in Cocoa, $24 using a small stiff brush, and finally, she curled Banks’ lashes and “applied several coats of Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils Luxurious Mascara, $30.”
Then, to give Banks a “peachy glow” Bass reached for Yves Saint Laurent Creme de Blush in Velvety Peach, $38. She applied to to the apples of her cheeks and blended outward.
Bass completed the look by adding a bright pop of color to Banks’ lips. She used Make Up For Ever Rouge Artiste Natural in Soft Fushia, $19. I’m so buying this shade. It’s gorgeous and I’m always for a bold lip color.
That’s it. Will you give this look a try?
