Get the Look: Vera Farmiga at the Orphan Premiere

Vera Farmiga, star of the uber-scary-looking new flick, Orphan (seriously, the trailer alone freaked me out!), attended tuesday night's premiere with a radiant glow, thanks to a visit to the ARCONA facial studio in santa monica where she received their signature Facial Contouring & Enzyme Peel.

Vera's makeup look was created by celeb makeup artist Tina Turnbow, who was inspired by Vera’s gorgeous ivory Versace gown-- not to mention and her beautiful glowing skin. to compliment them both, Tina created a soft look using gold and peach tones, with a shot of orange on her lips.

skin: Tina prepped Vera's skin by first cleansing it with ARCONA’s Triad Pads. she then spritzed ARCONA's Mineral Magic and applied ARCONA's Peptide Hydrating Complex to hydrate her skin thoroughly. "i loved using Mineral Magic on Vera's skin. it gave it a nice luminescent quality!" said Tina.

foundation: because Vera's skin had a natural glow, Tina kept the coverage to a minimum by using ARCONA’s Sunsations Mineral Makeup in Ivory Seychelles.

cheeks: Tina used Tarte Cheek Stain in Tipsy to add light peach tones to her skin.

undereye: Tina dabbed a bit of ARCONA’s Eye Dew to retain moisture.

eyeshadow & liner: Tina created a dewy eye using gold and brown with Nars Duo Eye Shadow in Star Sailor. she then softly defined her eyes with Almay Blendable Eye Pencil in brown.

mascara: for seductively lush and lengthy lashes, Tina applied Prescriptives Lash Envy mascara in brown.

lips: Tina added a dash of color with a matte lip by Nars in Heat Wave.
