Get the Look: Reese Witherspoon as Marlena in “Water for Elephants”

Water for Elephants, the compelling love story that hit the big screen in April, is now available on DVD and Blue-ray. To celebrate the November release, Avon teamed up with Celebrity Makeup Artist, Robin Fredrikz, who worked on Reese Witherspoon’s look for the lead role of Marlena. Using Avon favorites, Fredrikz recreated the timeless day and night time looks as seen in the film.

For both looks, Frederikz accentuated the eyes using shadows in warm and romantic hues, then lined eyes with black liner, and finished with multiple coats of lush black mascara to give the appearance of false lashes, as this was a key part of the look for Reese’s character. The daytime look was given a natural peachy lip whereas the night time lip was finished with a red gloss.
