Get the look: Simple and sultry
A show-stopping make-up look doesn’t have to take ages to achieve. In fact, if you have a spare ten minutes on your hands, you can recreate a seriously wonderful and sultry night-time look. Like this one that Jessica Chastain sported at the CFDA Fashion Awards earlier in the month.
I think we can all agree that the redhead looks stunning. Drop dead gorgeous even. The combination of her up-do combined with that slightly orange/red lip and silver eyeshadow is phenomenal. And not difficult to achieve. Here’s how you can get the very same look:
Step one: apply your foundation
Jessica hasn’t shied away from showing off a hint of her freckles, giving this look a fresher, more natural finish. For the same result, apply Yves Saint Lauren Le Teint Touche Éclat. The light foundation will help provide enough coverage over imperfections and shadowy areas but will still give your skin that natural, flawless finish.
If you do need that extra hit of radiance and to hide some dark under-eye circles, try Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat to enhance your complexion and give you a gorgeous radiant glow.
Step two: add a bronzed glow
See that subtle hint of bronze on Jessica’s cheeks? It warms her fair complexion without looking like she’s overdoing it. Beautiful, right? Take Yves Saint Laurent Terre Saharienne Bronzing Powder SPF 12 and lightly sweep it from the apples of your cheeks up and back towards your ears. The powder should sit just under your cheekbones. You’ll see that the sun radiance pigments will do wonders to reflect the light and give your skin a subtle luminous glow.
Step three: enhance your lashes
To recreate this eye look, you’ll want to focus on your lashes, so you can leave the bottom lash line and focus on the top instead. Using the Yves Saint Laurent L’Eyeliner Noir, line your top lash line. Start quite thin in the inner corner, and make the line a bit thicker as you go. Stop the line at the outer corner of your eye.
Then coat your top lashes with two coats with Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Clis in Black. The mascara has been designed to give your lashes that false-lash look, which is perfect for this look. Coat your bottom lashes with just one coat of the mascara.
Step four: add sparkle and shine
Who thought silver eyeshadow could look so good? Instead of applying your Yves Saint Laurent Ombre Solo in Satin Silver over your entire lid, just focus the powder on the inner corner of your eyelid, the area where your eye meets your nose, and just under your lash line on the inner corner.
Step five: finish off with a punchy pout
A vibrant orangey-red lip is the perfect partner to the silver eyeshadow and completes this sultry look. Apply Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture in L’Orange for a pigmented and long-lasting finish. The formula is buildable, so if one coat is a bit too sheer for you, try another layer.
