red carpet beauty: Keri Russell

for the movie premiere of "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" {i don't know about you, but i'm so looking forward to seeing it!} celebrity makeup artist Tina Turnbow created a radiant look for Keri Russell that worked to only make the already gorgeous actress look simply stunning. 

using Juara Skincare and Votre Vu products, Tina shared the details on how she created the look...

Tina first applied Juara’s Tamarind Tea Hydrating Toner onto Keri's cleansed skin to prep it for moisturizer, a vital step in creating the overall look.

Keri likes a dewy, glowy look, so moisturizing is a really important step. Tina used Juara Sweet Black Tea & Rice Facial Moisturizer and Sweet Black Tea Eye Crème to hydrate and give her skin that "plump, luminescent look."

Keri wore a Monique Lhuillier A-line, 50s style black skirt with a white top, so Tina's modern take on the classic 50's look included "a touch of color on the cheeks and lips and emphasize her eyes with a slight cat eye and strong brow."

on the eyes Tina swept a light linen eye shadow all over Keri's lids as the base and followed it with Votre Vu Le Joli Crayon in Charbon, drawing a line from the inner corner out with a little flick at the end to give a lift to the eye and a cat-eye feel. rather than leaving a straight line, a smudger was used to soften and extend the line, giving the eyes a more wide-eyed look.

Votre Vu’s Eiffel Power mascara {a personal favorite of mine!} was applied, concentrating on the outer edge of her top lashes to emphasize that wide-eye effect. Tina adds, "i didn’t put any mascara on her bottom lashes because i really liked the way it looked cleaner on the bottom. to finish off her eyes, i used the Arch de Triumphe in Warm Brown to enhance the arch of the brow and give it more definition."

on Keri's cheeks, Vu-On Rouge in Ma Cherry was used on the apples, as well as bit of the Vu-On Rouge in Amourette on the top of the cheek bones for highlight.

a modern take on a red lip was created using French Kiss in Tatiana {a sheer not too strong lipstick shade} by tapping it onto her lips and softening around the edges. Tina then applied Vu-On Rouge in Amourette onto the center of the lips.

so there you have it! what do you think?
