Glam Slam: Makeup Mondays - Featuring Zoe Saldana
“Star Trek Into Darkness” star Zoe Saldana turned heads with her sheer Rodarte gown at the Los Angeles premiere of the film, not to mention her luminous skin and sexy red lips.
Here are all the details you need to help you achieve her beauty look…
WHO: Makeup artist Vera Steimberg
INSPIRATION: “Chic, French-inspired” makeup look
LIPS: Deep red lips provided an elegant contrast to the actress’ sheer, nude gown. Steimberg applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Hollywood ($26) to Saldana’s lips. “As soon as I saw the dress, I knew we had to go with a red lip,” she stated.
EYES: Soft browns and metallic golds balanced bold lips.
First, Steimberg mixed Laura Mercier Metallic Crème Eye Colour in Gold and Burnished Copper ($23 each) and applied the combination to Saldana’s eyelids and along the bottom of the star’s lash lines.
She then lined the inside rims of the eyes using Laura Mercier Eye Pencil in Special Brown ($20).
Next, she applied Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Colour in Earth Glow ($24) under Saldana’s eyes, close to her lashes.
For added definition, Steimberg applied a combination of Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Coffee Ground and Truffle ($23 each) to the outer corners of Saldana’s eyes.
She added the final touch of glamour by applying multiple coats of Laura Mercier Faux Lash Mascara in Black ($24) to the actress’ top and bottom lashes.
FLAWLESS FACE: Illuminated, flawless skin.
Steimberg covered minor imperfections using Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-6 ($30).
Next, she lightly dusted Laura Mercier Mineral Illuminating Powder in Candlelight ($32) over the star’s face to create a natural glow.
Lastly, Steimberg applied Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Blaze ($24) to the apples of Saldana’s cheeks to create a natural flush of colour.
