A-LIST BEAUTY

At the recent Emmy Awards, Best Actress nominee Claire Danes made a splash on the red carpet. From her glamourous Armani gown to her faux-bob to her statement lip, she looked perfect from head to toe. Her righthand man, makeup artist Matin Maulawizada, reveals how to get her beautiful look.

For her shimmery eyes, he created a white-gold look by applying Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Sterling and Sugar Frost all over her. He extended the shimmer past her brows – to her temples and cheekbones – to use as a highlighter. He then lined her eyes with Tightline Cake Eye Liner in Black Ebony and Creme Eye Liner in Noir. He finished her eyes by coating her lashes with Laura Mercier Faux Lash Mascara.

Since her eyes were so shimmery, Matin wanted to keep Claire’s face matte. He moisturized and primed her skin, using Laura Mercier Foundation Primer. Next, he applied Laura Mercier Oil Free Suprême Foundation in Golden Beige and added Smooth Finish Foundation Powder to her jawline. For a flush of color on her cheeks, he applied Crème Cheek Colour in Sunrise. To keep the look in place for the entire night, he finessed with Laura Mercier Pressed Setting Powder in Translucent.

The part that pulled Claire’s whole look together – her bold, confident statement lip – was Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour in Mod. This tangerine lip ensured Claire did not look washed out with her pale dress and fair skin. While Matin says the actress was initially hesitant, she clearly made the right call by allowing the makeup maestro to work his magic!
