The Trick To Hailee’s Strong & Feminine Cat-eye Look

Celebrity makeup artist Vincent Oquendo worked with the stunning Hailee Steinfeld for last ngiht’s MTV VMAs. He noted, “This look is bold and sexy. It’s the grown up Hailee – strong and feminine.” Here, the how-to for Hailee Steinfeld’s makeup effect.

Skin
To prep Hailee’s skin, Vincent first swiped Laura Mercier Candleglow Concealer and Highlighter in 0.5 ($32) under her eyes to add a subtle luminosity. He then used Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-2 and SC-3 ($35) to even her skin tone and cover any existing redness.
To highlight Hailee’s already flawless skin, Vincent applied Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation in a mix of shades Cashew and Linen ($48). Vincent noted that this gave her skin “a creamy, smooth matte finish.”

For a bronzed glow all over her complexion, Vincent dusted Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Bronze 01 and Bronze 04 ($42). This made her skin offset the cool, slate color of her Versace mini dress.
To give her cheeks a peach-colored tint, Vincent lightly dusted Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Lush Nectarine ($26) on her cheekbones to add depth and dimension.

Eyes
For Hailee’s smoldering eye look, Vincent used Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour Matte in Caramel ($29) on her lids. He then used Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Tuxedo ($29) to create her strong, sexy winged cat eye, giving her a “modern Cher vibe.”

To add depth and brightness to her eyes, Vincent lightly applied Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-1 and SC-2 ($35)into her crease.

To finish her eye look, Vincent dusted Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Bronze 01 ($42) over her lids and brow bone to make her entire face look naturally bronzed and warm.

He then applied House of Lashes false lashed in Siren ($9) followed by several coats of Laura Mercier Extra Lash Sculpting Mascara in Black Onyx ($26).

For Hailee’s signature, bold brows, Vincent began by using Laura Mercier Sketch & Intensify Brow Pomade and Powder Brow Duo in Ash ($28) to outline and fill in the entire brow. He then swiped Laura Mercier Brow Dimension Fiber Infused Colour Gel in Brunette ($24) over her brows to ensure the color remained in place throughout the evening.

Lips
Vincent created her muted, nude lip using Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Natural Lips ($25) and Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Milky Way ($28).
