THE PERFECT PAIRING: ROSE & VALENTINO
Effortless glamour recipe: one part Valentino, two parts soft and stunning makeup. Rose McGowan had the whole package at the Valentino Rodeo Drive Flagship store opening with her coral mini dress, thanks to the man of the hour and her makeup by Sarah Uslan of Luxe Beauty Team at the Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon LA.
Sarah created a soft and pretty look to compliment Rose’s bright cocktail dress. Rather than focusing on heavy eye-makeup, Sarah went for light and natural eyes. Here’s how you can recreate the look:
It’s in the Eyes:
Using Lime Crime’s Eyeshadow Helper, prime the lid from the brow bone to the crease. Follow with Mac’s Paint Pot in Painterly from the crease down to the lash line. Blend the seam of the primer and the Paint Pot with Bobbi Brown Cream Shadow Brush. “To add a little highlight in the inner corner of the eyes, I swept Merle Norman Eye Shadow in Ballerina on with a crease blending brush,” says Sarah. To achieve the subtle look, Dolce & Gabbana makes the perfect eyeliner: Crayon Intense Eyeliner in Coffee. Use it to accent the lash-line without being too strong. Diorshow Mascara is the final step.
Glowing Skin and Rosey Cheeks:
Use Koh Gen Doh Aqua Foundation to keep the skin glowing. Follow with Skinn Cosmetics High Definition Cotton & Mineral Foundation in Light to achieve the flawless finish. To finish, add a pop of color to the cheeks with Illamasqua’s Powder Blusher in Tremble.
For the Lips:
Rose is the queen of lipsticks – she had the perfect lip color in her own makeup wardrobe to use for this look. Tom Ford’s Lip Color in True Coral was the winner and matched her mini dress beautifully.
