Despite the torrential rains at last night's UK Harry Potter Premiere, Emma Watson glowed like a sparkling ray of sunshine. She stood under an over-sized translucent brolly wearing a vintage Ossie Clarke gown and minimal jewels. She was smart to wear her hair up (get her hairstyle here) to avoid frizz, however, her makeup remained in tact all evening long.
Whilst I only officially know that her makeup artist used Lancome Oscillation Mascara in Black Motion as a finishing touch (apparently Emma swears by it), I've studied her look and have drummed up product recommendations for you to re-create at home.
- EYES: Apply a creamy pale beige shadow such as Gosh Waterproof Eye Shadow in Love That Champagne all over the lid. Then, using a tapered shadow brush, blend a deep pink shade such as i.d. bareMinerals Eye Shadow in Shantung to the crease. Next, line the top of your eyes only with something like Benefit Waterproof Bad Gal Liner in Black. When it's dry, apply two coats of mascara, fill in your brows and as a finally dab a little bit of white shimmer to the inner v of your eyes.
For additional product suggestions and application techniques,
- FACE: To get Emma's youthful glow, you won't want to choose a light base with minimal coverage. Begin by adding a little bit of concealer (in a shade that's a few shades lighter that your skin) under your eyes, around your nose. Use your index finger gently blend. Next, smooth a tinted moisturser all over your skin like Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturiser in Nude followed with light dusting of a matching loose powder to help set the foundation.
- CHEEKS: Now it's glow time. For this particular look I encourage you to use a medium rose cream blusher (I like No7 Blush Tint Cream Blush in Blossom). Start at the apples of your cheeks and blend outwards towards your hairline. Next, apply a sheen enhancing product like MAC Strobe Cream just above your blusher, to the bridge of your nose, your chin and in the center of your forehead.
- LIPS: Finally it's time to concentrate of your pout. Emma has matched her blusher to her lipstick which It creates a simple and youthful effect, especially in her creamy matte, pink colour choice. Make sure lips are exfoliated and with a brush apply a shade such as Clinique Long Lasting Lipstick in Soft Bloom all over.
