Get The Look: Reese Witherspoon at the “Devil’s Knot” Premiere

"The Devil's Knot" Premiere - Arrivals 2013 Toronto International Film Festival

Laura Mercier worked with actress Reese Witherspoon for the Toronto International Film Festival Screening of “Devil’s Knot.”

Makeup artist Mai Quynh created a “modern, fresh and polished” look for the Toronto International Film Festival screening of Witherspoon’s new movie “Devil’s Knot.” Quynh was inspired by Witherspoon’s green Jimmy Choos and the neckline of her black and white Jason Wu dress.

FACE: Illuminated, flawless skin

· Quynh first prepped the skin with Laura Mercier Moisture Crème Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen Normal/Combination, ($52) and then used her fingers to apply Laura Mercier Foundation Primer, ($32) all over Witherspoon’s face.

· She then applied Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation in Cashew Beige, ($45), using a sponge.

· Next, she created a natural flush of colour using Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Praline, ($24) and Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Peach Mosaic, ($40).

· To ensure Witherspoon’s makeup stayed in place all night, she applied Laura Mercier Pressed Setting Powder in Translucent, ($34) using the Laura Mercier Finishing Brush, ($42).

· Lastly, Quynh dusted the actress’s forehead, cheeks and chin with Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Bronze -02, ($36) using the Laura Mercier Bronzer Brush, ($45).

LIPS: Bright coral lips contrast Witherspoon’s green Jimmy Choos

· Quynh lined Witherspoon’s lips using Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Warm Poppy, ($22) and then applied Laura Mercier Crème Lip Colour in Tangerine, ($24) to create the bold pout.

EYES: Soft bronzed eyes

· First, Quynh applied Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Sand Glow, ($26) to Witherspoon’s eyelids, from the lash line to the crease, and then blended upwards.

· Next, she applied Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Colour in Fire Glow, ($24) on the crease of the eyes and faded the colour up towards the brow bone. Then, she smudged both the Illuminating Eye Colour and Caviar Stick Eye Colour along the bottom lash lines using the Laura Mercier Smudge Brush, ($24).

· For added depth, Quynh smudged Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Truffle, ($23) along Witherspoon’s top lash line.

· Finally, she used Laura Mercier Eye Brow Pencil in Fair Blonde, ($22) to define her brows.

Check out Mally’s Effortless Airbrush Highlighter and Blush Duo!

mally-effortless-airbrush

Mally Roncal, Celebrity Makeup Artist and President / Founder of Mally Beauty has your looks for this summer! She’s shared three tips with Make Her Up, and I thought I’d pass them along! I was sent the Mally Beauty Effortless Airbrush Highlighter and Blush Duo in order to review for this post*.

Here are three looks to try out that are fun, bright and right on season:

Bright Pink Lips: Because pink is so bright, you want to make sure that you prevent the color from moving around on your lips. On dry lips, use a lipstick first and follow with the liner after to get precision. Try Mally Beauty Bright Lip Kit in Frisky Fuchsia. You can add a gloss for extra shine.

Sparkly, Bronzy, Smokey Eye: Simply line the whole eye area using a Shadow Stick and then blend with your fingertips. Try Mally Beauty Evercolor Shadow Stick in Saddle Shimmer. Apply a gold shade in the crease of the eye and bottom lash to soften the look. Complete the look by applying at least three coats of mascara – try Waterproof during the summer months. Try Mally Beauty Waterproof Volumizing Mascara.

Bronzed Skin: Use a bronzer that is one to two shades darker than your natural skin tone. Apply it where the sunlight will naturally hit your face, like behind the ears, along the jawline, across the top of the forehead, of the nose, cheeks, and tip of the chin. Try Mally Beauty Believable Bronzer. Finish off the look by adding more light to the face with a highlighting powder. But, only apply it to your cheekbones. Try Mally Beauty Effortless Airbrush Highlighter and Blush Duo.

This is a gorgeous color, isn’t it! It’s such a beautiful shimmery/summery shade. I love that they provide the brush to go with! A+!

*Disclosure: I was sent these products to review for the site, I was not paid to write this post, and I was not compensated for my opinions. The opinions you read here are mine alone.
