I’m loving this tricked-out stare one Ms. Amy Schumer is serving. Here, her go-to makeup artist Andréa Tiller shares how to get the look.

“First, apply hydrating 3 minute mask Express Flower Gel by Sisley. After wiping off mask, apply a healthy dose of Hydra-Global Cream by Sisley. Then apply on the T-Zone only, apply Nourishing Primer by Make Up For Ever to keep the makeup in place. Apply Double Wear by Estee Lauder then lightly contour using Soleil Tan De Chanel under the cheek bones. Then I set everything with translucent Loose Setting Powder by Laura Mercier. I then applied Sheer Blush #3 by Armani for a warm/soft bronze color on the apples of the cheek. For the dewy effect, I applied Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal only on the top of her cheekbones.

I used Anastasia’s Duo Powder to perfect Amys brows using an angled brush. I used Dior’s Eye Reviver in #001 to create a very natural and subtle smoky eye look – we didn’t want take away from her lips. I worked my way from left (lighter colors) to right (darker colors) on the palette. Starting with the lightest shade, I applied a light layer with a fluffy brush on both lids, going from eyelash to eyebrow. I also apply this on the tear ducts with a smaller brush for a pop! Next, I mixed the 2nd and 3rd colors to create a light crease above the eye socket for subtle definition. I also like to brush these colors right below the lower lash line. To create the subtle smoky effect, I took a blending brush and applied the 5th color from left (dark brown) on the outer edges of the eyes.

Then using an angled brush, I used the 6th (last) color of the palette – which is actually a gel back liner – to create a thin line above the upper lash line for the ultimate definition.

I curled her lashes, then applied 2 coats of mascara to the top and bottom lashes. I like using Aqua Smoky Extravagant by Make Up For Ever. Last, I applied Short and Medium Individual Lashes by Ardell.
I lined and filled in the lips with the Laura Mercier True Red Lip Pencil. To keep the lips hydrated, I then applied Creme De Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm by Dior.”
