Get the Look: Carice von Houten at the Valkyrie Premiere

Makeup artist Brett Freeman created this gorge look for Dutch breakout star Carice von Houton. Carice and her stylist Jessica Pastor chose a beautiful blush-hued dress by Donna Karan.

Says Brett, “We all fell in love with the gorgeous draping and subtle color against her pale skin, but I needed to bring out the drama to make the look ‘stun’ on the red carpet. Smoky eyes were too severe, so we stuck with a clean, shimmery lid and dramatic eyeliner. Carice’s skin is dazzling in person, so we kept the rest of her face quite simple, just adding a touch of blush and giving her shoulders a light misting of shimmer to warm up the rest of her skin.”

Brett (pictured with Carice, left) used the following products. It’s a recessionista mix of high and low:
Base: LORAC Natural Performance Foundation NP1, Oil Free
Face powder: magic by Prescriptives liquid powder
Concealer: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer and Highlight in ‘Light’
Cheeks and eyes: MAC Powder Blush in Springsheen
Brow: Vanitymark Ultra-Brow Powder in Milk Choco
Eyeliner: Rimmel SpecialEyes Eye Liner Pencil in Black Magic
Mascara: Guerlain ‘Le 2 de Guerlain’ in No. 10 Noir
Lip pencil: MAC Lip Pencil in Stripdown
Lip gloss: Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Illume
Skin gloss: Vanitymark’s Shimmerskin Body Glisten Spray

I adore the eye concept and her brows are killing me softly with their SONG. What say you? Tell me in the comments!

    She looks lovely. Her name is Carice van Houten though. The ‘von’ is the german version of the Dutch ‘van’. Probably very confusing, but I’m Dutch so I know.
