Get Kristin Bauer's Modern-Meets-Vintage Makeup Look

Vampire Pam on True Blood is having some terrifying facial issues this season, but actress Kristin Bauer looks stunning as ever. At this year's Comic-Con, Exclusive Artists Management celebrity makeup artist Agostina Lombardo created an updated 1950s look for her. "I wanted to stay away from a classic red lip," Lombardo explained, "so I chose a red-brown color instead, which to me keeps it more modern." Love the palette?

Complexion:
Lombardo started by applying Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich Foundation in Warm Sand, followed by Bobbi Brown concealer in Ivory. Dior loose powder was used to set the look.

Eyes:
For heavier color along the top lashes, Lombardo used a black eye shadow from Valerie of Beverly Hills as a liner, blending it well to give the illusion of liner. She then applied white eye shadow on the inner corners of Kristin's eyes, all the way to the middle of the lids; the shadow was also used under the brows for definition. To finish, Lombardo applied MAC eye shadow in Kid, a taupe shade, under the eyes, and lots of L'Oréal Voluminous mascara in Blackest Black on both the top and bottom lashes.

Cheeks and lips:
For a pretty, peachy-pink glow, Lombardo applied MAC blush in Pinch O'Peach along Kristin's cheekbones, followed by Pink Swoon blush on the apples of the cheeks. She tied it all together with Nars's lipliner in African Queen, a matte red-brown.
