Kate Mara's Perfectly Pretty Bronze Smoked-out Lids: Get The Look


Kate Mara typically slays the scene on the red carpet and last night’s bronze lids and nude lips combo is one I’m absolutely recreating. Celebrity makeup artist Coleen Campbell-Olwell used Orlane products to create Kate Mara’s stunning look for the red carpet premiere of “Transcendence.” It complements perfectly her auburn ombre, n’est-ce pas? Here, the look, straight from Coleen.

“For Kate’s look tonight, she’s wearing a gorgeous, gold Valentino dress with swept-up hair, so we decided to do bold and metallic shadows on her eyes with a pop of color and luminous, radiant skin.

Since the weather here in LA is so warm and dry, I started by massaging in Orlane’s Super-Moisturizing Light Cream for extra hydration.  This product is a staple in my kit!  It really preps the skin so that the foundation goes on smoothly.

I then dabbed on Orlane’s Absolute Skin Recovery Eye Contour under her eyes.  Next, I mixed two drops of the Morning Recovery Concentrate into Chanel’s Vitalumiere Foundation for extra luminosity and applied it with a dampened Beauty Blender.

For extra definition, I contoured under her cheekbones with a medium-sized fluffy brush and Orlane’s Bronzer in Soleil Cuivre 02.  This bronzer is perfect for contouring because it is matte and looks so natural.  Then, to add a hint of peach to the apples of her cheeks, I swirled on Dior’s Blush in Amber Show.

On Kate’s eyes, I applied metallic and gold shadows and used a purple accent for a pop of color.  I decided to forgo false lashes and instead lined her top lash line with Antonym’s Certified Natural Eye Pencil in Noir.  To add density to her lashes, I took a small, dense shadow brush and smudged it in.  Then, I applied two coats of Orlane’s Volume Care Mascara.  I LOVE this mascara as it creates such long, lush lashes

I love Kate’s lip color, so we went au natural and just applied a balm on top to keep them hydrated.

To finish off the look, I used Orlane’s Highlight Care Brush to add extra glow to the top of her cheekbones, the inside corner of her eyes, and the top of her lip line. Last, I dusted Orlane’s Translucent Loose Powder on her t-zone.”
