The 20th Annual ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards were held at the weekend. Reese Witherspoon was honoured at the ceremony. For me Reese is one of those starlets who never fails to impress with her makeup. She always has the most perfect skin. She never looks over-done, which must be hard knowing that the worlds press will be looking. Her makeup artist Molly Stern, who works with many Hollywood A-Listers, really worked her magic on Saturday night. Giving Reese smouldering eyes, combined with soft peach lips and a flawless complexion really made her stand out on the red carpet.
Here’s what Molly used to create this perfect look:
Lancôme Teint Visionnaire foundation for the perfect skin, €45.00. YSL Crème de Blush in Audacious Orange, this is the perfect shade of blush for Irish skin, €45.00. Lancôme Blush Subtil in Cedar Rose, this soft blush adds a little hint of colour, €38.00. For the eyes Molly used Lancôme Hypnose Ombre S304, to creat that smouldering effect, €24.00. Shu Uemura Matte Eye Shadow in Medium Brown, this is the perfect matte brown shadow and would suit all eye colours, perfect really, €10.90 exclusive to Brown Thomas. Lancôme Hypnose Star Eyes Palette ST1 Brun Adore, €48.00. Lancôme Artliner 24H in Chrome, these liners do not moved after you have let them set, I use them for brides all of the time, if they cry it does not end up on their cheeks, €28.00. And then to complete the smouldering eye look Molly used Lancôme L’Extrême Mascara, €22.00. For the lips Molly used Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo to line, €21.79 available exclusively at Space NK in Harvey Nichols and then on top of the liner she used the most perfect nude shade from Lancôme Rouge in Love, Jolis Matins is a wonderfully peach shade, €25.00.
Tip from Molly: To get a smouldering, sultry eye without the look becoming too dark, apply a highlighting illuminator on the inside lid for added sparkle and shine.
