You were applauding Salma Hayek's makeup and hair last night, and I've got to agree. The sexy 42-year-old (can you believe it?) mixed old Hollywood with a contemporary twist for this sophisticated look — one that was directly inspired by her Dior dress.
Nars makeup artist Matthew Vanleeuwen said, “I made her eyes the focus and added a lot of rich, jewel skin tones and fresh color to her cheeks and lips. Her look was very classic and chic, with some modern textures.” Wowza. To see what shades and techniques he chose,
- Eyes: To the top and bottom lash line, Vanleeuwen applied Single Eye Shadow in China Blue ($22). Next, Cream Eye Shadow in Corfu ($21) was used as a base, all over the eyelid. The golden champagne side of the Duo Eye Shadow in Alhambra ($32) was applied to the lid, and Single Eye Sadow in Bengali ($22) was placed all along the lash line and smudged. For a smoky effect, he went back over the lash line with Single Eye Shadow in Night Clubbing ($22). Two coats of black mascara finished off the look.
- Lips: Vanleeuewen used Lipliner Pencil in Marnie ($20) and Tutti Frutti Lipstick ($24).
- Blush: He applied Blush in Desire ($24) to the apple of cheeks and Bronzer Powder in Laguna ($29) from the back of cheekbone forward.
