The Trick To Kate Mara’s Toronto Film Festival Makeup Look

Makeup artist Coleen Campbell-Olwell created Kate Mara’s stunning, fresh yet formal look using Votre Vu products. Coleen started by evening the skin tone using Votre Vu’s Attentitive day cream. The foundation was then applied using Armani’s Luminous Silk foundation and under the eyes was concealed to brighten using Nars Radiant Creamy concealer. D&G bronzer was used to contour, while Votre Vu’s Beauté en Bronze in Tahiti was used to give her cheeks a flush. Her brows were styled using the Dior brow styler.

Kate Mara’s standout eye look was created using Votre Vu’s Palette Play in Copper. Campbell-Olwell describes how she “washed the entire eye with the burgundy shade [gilt] and also swept it two thirds of the way under her eye. The shimmer in the shade opened up the eye beautifully.” She then framed the eye using Votre Vu’s Le Joli Crayon eyeliner in Violectra at the corners. “I wanted to pull out the color and add strength to contrast the playful chignon of the hair” Votre Vu’s Eiffel Power mascara was then used to darken and lengthen Kate’s naturally long lashes.

To finish the look and pull everything together Campbell-Olwell used Votre Vu’s French Kiss Lipstick in shade Margaux. This berry red shade was applied with full coverage to stand out and create a nice full lip. Campbell-Olwell says that “after the lipstick went on I then outlined the lips with Votre Vu’s Drawmatic Lip Liner in Sizzle. This warm tone strengthened the overall color of the lips. Using the same colors throughout the look was powerful, beautiful, and bold.”
