Hands down, my favorite makeup look of the night!
(Honestly she looked prettier on my HD tv last night than she does in the accompanying pic, but anyway…)
Here is how I would achieve Sandra’s glowing skin and defined eye:
Use Laura Mercier’s illuminating tinted moisturizer all over. If you need additional coverage, spot apply Laura Mercier’s moisturizing foundation and/or secret camouflage)
Use Tarte’s stick blush in “blushing bride” on the cheekbones. (Apply translucent powder ONLY on the nose, chin and forhead, and only if you tend towards excessive shine)
Lightly define brows with MAC lingering pencil and sweep into place with MAC’s brow set.
Rim entire eye with Smashbox jet set in black, giving a slight cat eye effect. Smudge the liner slightly upwards at the outer corner with Laura Mercier “Chambord” shadow. Use a light shimmery cream shadow all over the eye, such as Benefit “tattletale”; carry this into the inner corner of the eye. Continue to bulid the Chambord, alternating with Laura Mercier Primrose, for a soft but smoky halo effect. (The definition is mainly at the lash line and fading out towards the crease.) apply short and medium individual lash clusters for more pop and open-ness to the eye.
The lips are very soft; try Laura Mercier Chestnut pencil along with Mercier “opal” glace.
