“Harry Potter” star Emma Watson has been on a whirlwind worldwide publicity tour for the latest film, which is already a $400 million box office smash! Emma has been looking quite smashing herself on the red carpet and I am particularly loving her natural looking makeup.
Molly R. Stern, COVERGIRL celebrity makeup artist, who has worked with Ellen DeGeneres, Mandy Moore and Amy Adams, shows us how to create a red carpet worthy look like Emma’s and here’s the best part - it’s under $50!
Prep the skin with Evian Water Spray ($5.50) before applying foundation - it will give your skin a dewy look and help keep it hydrated. To get gorgeous color like Emma’s, apply a peachy shade of cream blush to the apples of your cheeks like COVERGIRL & Olay Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush in Plush Peach ($10.99). www.covergirl.com Next, apply bronzer where the sun would normally hit your face for an added hint of color; I recommend using a bronzer like Sephora brand Bronzer Powder SPF 15 for a natural looking glow. $16 www.sephora.com
To achieve a natural eye look like Emma’s, apply a layer of eye shadow in a champagne shade on your lids and finish with a few coats of volumizing mascara like COVERGIRL LashBlast ($8.95) for bold, dramatic lashes. Your eyes will really pop and you’ll be red carpet glam in no time!
For a neutral lip like Emma’s, I’m loving COVERGIRL Outlast Lipstain in Sassy Mauve ($7.29). It gives your lips the perfect flush of color that lasts all day. It’s easy to apply and add a touch of clear gloss for a shiny finish.
