2008 was a tough year for Christina Applegate, who underwent a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Thankfully, she's now cancer-free, and she's earning kudos for her performance on Samantha Who?. If you loved her red-carpet look, created by makeup artist Joanna Schlip, follow these steps to recreate it at home.
- Skin: Before applying any makeup, Schlip applied The Moisturizing Lotion from La Mer on Christina's face to give her smooth, hydrated skin. Then, she used DiorSkin Pure Light foundation in Cameo, covering imperfections with Dior Skinflash Radiance Booster Pen. After applying a self-tanner bronzer, she used Physicians Formula 100% Natural Origin 2-in-1 Bronzer and Blush in Bronzer/Ginger on the apples of Christina's cheeks. She set the makeup with La Mer The Mist. Christina's collarbone and shoulders glowed after an application of MAC Strobe Cream.
For the rest of the steps,
- Eyes: On eyes, Schlip used Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips in Vegas Strip, a collection of shimmery light bronze shades. Use the lightest shade near the brow bone, and use the darker bronze in the crease of the eyelid. Line the upper lash line with a black felt-tip eyeliner, then apply a few coats of mascara. If necessary, define your brows with powder or pencil; Christina wore Dior Powder Brow Pencil in Blonde./LI>
- Lips: First, line lips with a red liner. Use a lip brush to fill lips with a red lipstick; Christina wore Rouge Dior Replenishing Lipcolor in Red Premiere. Follow with a bit of shimmery red gloss such as Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in 757.
