Recreate Emily Ratajkowski’s Matte Makeup Moment


Emily Ratajkowski rocked a creamy/slightly matte nude lip paired with bold brows, courtesy of celebrity makeup artist Jo Baker for last night’s red carpet premiere of “We Are Your Friends.” Here, the beauty breakdown, per Jo.



“For Emily’s base I buffed a small amount of Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation onto her almost perfect skin– this creates a lightweight breathable coverage that looks and feels natural, not overdone! To add a little golden summertime warmth to her cheeks I applied YSL Les Sahariennes in #5. This tan-toned balm adds a gentle sun kissed look and is perfectly applied with a soft blush brush.”


“We wanted Emily’s eyes to sparkle and shine with a light and dreamy quality. I used a soft cream eyeshadow wash over the lid of her eye using Maybelline Color Molten Shadow in Taupe Craze followed by one coat (which is all that was needed) of Urban Decay Perversion Mascara.


“Using a lip brush I applied the supremely luxurious Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick in Stark Naked, which features a blend of avocado, olive oil and shea butter that help these anti-drying matte wonders stay smooth and creamy all day. To enhance Emily’s lip shape I softly lined them after the lipstick was applied using Urban Decay Glide-On 24/7 Lip Pencil in Stark Naked.”

Jo’s pro tip: For a natural perfected lip, apply Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick with a brush onto lips and takeUrban Decay Glide-On 24/7 Lip Pencil to shape the edges of the lip afterwards. The lipstick base provides glide so you can shape your desired lip effortlessly.


“I like to finish with grooming the brows at the very end, this allows me to see how much attention they need. Emily has fabulous natural eyebrows so all she needed was a couple of strokes of Urban Decay Brow Beater in Warm Brown to even their shape, finished by a swipe of Urban Decay Brow Tamer in Taupe to keep them in place.

Jo’s pro tip:  Use a slightly lighter Brow Tamer shade on top of your Brow Beater pencil color, as this keeps them looking natural without becoming too dark and heavy.
