Makeup artist Mai Quynh created this smoldering look for Jessica Szohr (whose tenure on “Gossip Girl” was truncated too early, in my professional opinion) for “The Internship”premiere. Here, the breakdown courtesy of Quynh.
I started by applying Revive Defensif Renewal Serum to the face. I like to start with the eye makeup because I can clean up any fallen shadow on her bare skin. I applied Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color Shadow in Caviar, along her lash line to the crease. Then, I used Dolce & Gabbana Eyeshadow Quad in Femme Fatale 100. I mixed the taupe and black colors and then applied them to her crease. Then I smudged the black color along her bottom lash line. I rimmed her eyes with Becca Automatic Eye Pencil in Majorca.
I brushed on two coats of Diorshow Black Out Mascara. For the face, I applied Laura Mercier Oil Free Supreme Foundation. I mixed Honey Beige and Suntan Beige to her face. I used both colors to add dimension. I applied Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer in SC-5 around her nose. I set her face using Clinique Stay Matte Sheer Powder in Stay Suede. I bronzed her face using Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder in 02. I brushed on Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Blushing Bride to the apples of her cheeks.
Finally, I applied NARS Lipstick in Tolede. It’s a beautiful soft rose color that compliments her smokey eyes.
What do you think of this look? Wearable for a wedding, no?
