Q: Lucy Liu looks gogeous on the red carpet yet always low-key. Her secret?
A: Keeping the glow subtle, Lucy Liu’s makeup artist, Erin Ayanian Monroe, goes for a fresh but carefully sculpted look. “Makeup should blend and flatter without the bells and whistles,” says Monroe. “True beauty is about looking effortless.”
Her favorite trick: applying rose blush to the apples of the cheeks, then dusting a lighter pink shade directly above them and blending it back toward the temples. She also swipes highlighter on the cheekbones to create a beautifully sculpted but natural-looking effect. She finishes with mascara and rose lipstick, and there’s still room for statement hair like her sky-high pony, above.
