Yes, I’m going to see the Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows — Part 2. All I need first is the time to have a refresher marathon via Rogers On Demand. In other news, though: Emma Watson’s makeup at the NYC premiere.
Emma’s Bottega Veneta dress sparked conflicting reviews (see it here on JustJared.buzznet.com); I loved it. I also love how it inspired her mixed-media makeup, a combination of matte, shimmer and metallic, including gold-leaf, against natural-finish skin. Take note: this Fall you’ll be seeing more makeup palettes that combine textures — matte, shimmer, iridescent and metallic in the same compact. Gold leaf you’ll have to add yourself. For this look, here’s your list:
Complexion: primer, sheer foundation, a touch of concealer and the barest amount of powder. You want a looks-natural glow. Note the bronzey-blush placement, sculpting the face under cheekbones to hairline — a more sophisticated application than the youthful apple-of-cheeks approach.
Brows: Try the waterproof Smashbox Brow Tech to Go pencils.
Lips: Try a light lipstick barely a shade deeper than your natural lip colour.
Metallic gold: For the tearduct, try Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Cream in Gold, NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Gold — or Lise Watier Mineral Loose Powder Eye Shadow in Folie Soleil + Metamorfix Liquid Transformer. Maybelline New York Eye Studio Color Plush Silk Eye Shadow in Give Me Gold, applied wet, will work, too.
Is this look something you’d try for a dramatic evening? Gold leaf or no gold leaf? Killer brows, right?
Made in Canada? Lise Watier, Cover FX, MAC Carbon eye shadow…
