Catherine Zeta Jones looked stunning hosting the Motion Picture & Television Fund on October 15. Celebrity make up artist Brett Freedman provided deets on how to recreate the shimmering pewter and lilac look he gave the Hollywood star.
Dermalogica oil free. I use this sheer yet hydrating lotion as a primer.
Chanel Sublimage. I love how it disappears. I apply before and after foundation to keep the eye area dewy and pliable.
I mixed two, Make Up Forever’s HD in Soft Sand and to warm up a touch, I added Fresh’s Umbrian Clay in Marrakesh. Catherine was sporting a beautiful tan already, so I wanted to keep in that vibe.
Jemma Kidd Bronzing Trio compact. I like the three colors of soft bronze tones and slightly shimmery finish.
Laura Mercier Camo. I went a touch lighter under the eyes to give the softer shadows a pop more definition.
Maybelline‘s Dream Mousse in Soft Plum. I wanted to keep the cheeks womanly but add a touch of sheer sweetness. This formula and color is perfect for adding drama without looking over done or too made up.
MAC. Lid: Yogurt with a highlight of White Frost in the center to give the lid a moist, wet look. Crease: Quarry. Brow bone: Phloof! I used a small damp brush with Idol Eyes at the lash line to give liquid liner depth. This was really a lash and liner story so I went soft and minimal with the shadow. Since CZJ was wearing lilac we settled on a cool toned vibe for the eye in mauve, petal and pewter.
Shiseido pen liner in Black. My tip: apply a very thin line along lash line from tear duct to end of eye. Let dry and thicken and extend line up and out toward temple.
Elizabeth Arden Ceramide in Black. Catherine curled her lashes before and after applying mascara. She did a whopping three coats on top and a just a touch on the bottom. This look works best with a stop top lash line and crisp but minimal bottom lash line.
Vanitymark Ultra-Brow in Dark Choco. Since the hair has an upswept, Ursula Andress vibe, I defined Catherine’s brow with a lot of structure to balance the uber-glam feel.
Highlighter for tops of cheeks
LORAC illuminating powder in Spotlight. Great warm, champagne hue is perfect for deeper skin tones or tanned skin.
Lip liner: MAC Whirl. Lipstick: Lancome Pink Preview. Gloss: Smashbox Golden Purple. My first thought was to use just the matte lipstick. Catherine wanted something that would pop on the red carpet and stage so we added a glaze of the Smashbox gloss over top to add drama.
