There is a lot of pretty red carpet makeup. And I talk about plenty of it. But I have to say, when I saw these photos of ScarJo yesterday, it literally took my breath away. She is the most beautiful thing, maybe, like ever.
So I started hounding the genius behind the look, makeup artist Frankie Boyd, who was busy being awesome in London, but managed to find time to send me the breakdown on this stunning look.
And, since Scarlett has a beauty contract with Dolce &Gabbana, all products are D&G.
Here’s what he said:
“Scarlett is an amazing beauty on the inside and out. I love working with her, because she’s very free spirited and always up for trying new looks. When we sat down to discuss the look for the premiere, Scarlett asked for something disco inspired to play off the colorful Balmain jumpsuit.”
“I started the eyes by giving the lashes a nice curl and lining the inside of the eye (tight-lining) on top and bottom with a very intense amount of Kohl Eye Pencil in black. I used the D&G Eye Shadow Quad in Smoky to highlight and sculpt the eyes in a dramatic effect (The lighter shimmery tan on the lids, the darker shimmery brown in and above the crease). Using an angled brush, I took the darkest shade (black, top left) under the lower lashes to reinforce the black eye liner and make sure no gaps or skin was showing through the lash line.
Then, I applied a demi lash on the outer corners to accentuated her natural eye shape. I used Intenseyes Black Intensity Mascara heavy at the root and feathered it out at the tips using a clean mascara wand. Then, using a tiny angled brush, I literally painted the mascara on the lower lashes.
To finish the eyes, I used Perfect Mono Cream Eye Colour in Gold Dust to highlight the inner corner of the eyes to make them really pop.
I used The Illuminator in Shimmer on her temples down to the top of her cheeks, bridge of the nose, cupids bow and top of the chin to emphasize Scarlett’s natural glow.
On the lips, I used the new Dolce Matte Lipstick in Fire (605), and, using a lip brush, I carefully defined Scarlett’s natural lip line.”
I mean. Swoon, swoon, and swoon some more!
Peace, Love and Gorgeous Makeup,
