This past Thursday, I was invited to a glittering french themed fete to toast Eva Mendes, the new (and incredibly gorgeous) face of Thierry Mugler’s Angel campaign. A full fragrance review is en route, however, the first order of business in Ms. Mendes’ makeup…it was pitch-perfect in every way. The complexion, the lips, the cheeks — all divine. Celebrity Makeup Artist Genevieve Herr spills the beans:
Eva’s skin was primed with Clarins Beauty Flash Balm and Multi-Active Day Cream.
Using Thierry Mugler Beauty, Genevieve created a sultry, summer look to complement Eva’s mint green MUGLER dress.
First, Genevieve used ‘Cooling Effect Compact Foundation’ in Color #50.
To contour Eva’s features, then brushed on the ‘Blush & Light Powder’ in Brown & White.
To prep the lips, Genevieve applied ‘Flash Lips Foundation’ in Nude and blended with ‘Rouge Unique Lipstick’ in Heaven.
To create the dramatic eye, Genevieve lined the whole eye from inner to outer corner on both the upper and lower lash lines in black “Eye Liner Cream”.
To highlight the lids, Genevieve swept on “Eye Shadow & Lights Quartet” in Sublime Nature to contour the eyes with beige and golden hues.
Finally, “Flash on Lashes Mascara’ in Black was applied to the lashes, but the secret weapon was a final coat of ‘Vinyl Gloss’ on the lashes to leave them looking wet and glossy.
