For those that want a glamorous look that will leave people speechless, look no further than the work of makeup artist Sarah Uslan of Luxe Beauty Team at the Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon LA. Jaws were dropping with one look at actress Rose McGowan, who stepped out recently at an event at the Chateau Marmont to celebrate actor Charlie Chaplin.
Sarah (aka the “makeup artist with the Midas touch”) offers up her step-by-step process for creating Rose’s stunning look here, so that you can leave onlookers at your next occassion with the same impression.
“I like to start with priming the lid,” says Sarah. “I used a small amount of Laura Geller’s Eye Spackle eyeshadow primer.” Follow with MAC Indianwood Paint Pot, it makes the perfect lid color base to build this bronzy gold look. Swipe this with a cream shadow brush or your ring finger over the lower lid. Using a little bit of MAC Orange eye shadow on a crease brush, tap onto the outside corner of the lid and blend into the crease. To add the pop of intense gold, Make Up For Ever Metal Powder #1 in Sunflower Gold is perfect to press onto the ball of the lid.
To get that strong cat eye, Bobbi Brown’s Black Ink Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner was paired with their Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush. Take care to build the line little by little. Finish with Bobbi Brown’s Intensifying Long-wear Mascara for long and defined lashes.
For the Brows:
Rose loves to do her own brows using Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Medium Brown.
“I’m obsessed with Koh Gen Doh Aqua Foundation to create beautiful glowing skin,” Sarah raves. Bobbi Brown’s Medium Bronzing Powder with Bobbi’s Bronzer Brush will create a warm subtle contour to the skin. To achieve those pinkey cheeks, try Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Tremble.
Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Egerie with Bobbi Brown Bright Pink Lip Gloss will complete the look!
Obviously a bit of work involved to dazzle, but I like the balance in the final result. Though is it me, or does Rose McGowan look a bit different from how I remember her from her Charmed days? Do love her hair though.
