Beautiful Anna Kendrick was a breath of fresh air at the “Into The Woods” premiere this week. Her look, according to celebrity makeup artist, Sara Glick, was “clean and fresh, with a touch of youthful sophistication.” Glick shares her tips on how to steal Kendrick’s wonderful style below:
Rosie Cheeks! To create a glowing complexion, Glick began with Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Oil Free and a minimal amount of Laura Mercier High Coverage Concealer in #0.5. Next she she sparingly applied Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen in Cameo, before focusing on Kendrick’s cheeks. Using Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Soft Iris along the hollows, Glick made a sweeping motion upwards toward the hairline. “This is a simple and easy way to bring out the natural curves of the face without looking too bronzed, and can simply be incorporated into a daily makeup routine,” says Glick.
Smoky Eyes! Glick created a glamourous smokey eye, without overpowering the full look by using three shades of Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour – Seashell on the inner corners, Rosegold on the lids and bottom lash line, and Plum for the crease and outer lash line. Adding additional fullness to Kendrick’s lashes, she drew a fine line across the top lash line by applying Laura Mercier Crème Eye Liner in Noir with an angled brush, making sure to fill in the top waterline. She filled in Kendrick’s strong brows before applying several coats of BareMinerals Flawless Definition Mascara in Black.
Pink and Peachy Lips! Glick kept Kendrick’s lips simple and chose Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour in Silk. ”When I think of a princess, this is the shade that comes to mind,” shared Glick.
UNMASK WITH DERMOVIA
Last week we spotted a masked Lady Gaga (“Gaga Unmasked“), prompting us to feature a fabulous new prosumer (professional-consumer) facial treatment, the Lace Your Face Mask. Radically different from a traditional paste-and-peel, Lace Your Face is made from high-quality, stretchy, cotton gauze (LaceTex), which emulates the breathability of a surgical mask. In addition to its clever stay-in-place ear and chin straps, the reusable Lace Your Face features compression technology to renew and repair the skin. Each mask is infused with 30 ml (enough for two applications) of clinical-grade serum, including hydrating, calming, and pH-balancing ingredients such as Chamomile extract, apple stem cells, Squaline, Tahitian seawater and Dew Grass extracts. Simply apply the mask (lace side down) to a dry, clean, face for fifteen minutes and then remove (no rising!).
Dermovia, the company behind Lace Your Face, is offering thirty Beauty Undercover Subscribers an opportunity to win a single Lace Your Face Mask (retail $15), simply by liking them on Facebook and entering here. This SWAG Alert is open to Subscribers 18 years or older with a valid US mailing address only. Delivery is anticipated within 3-4 weeks.
