Julia Stiles‘ 2011 SAG Awards magical mauve-focused makeup look was created by celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey. “I was really inspired by her gorgeous flowing dress so we wanted the beauty look to work with the effortless, ‘rich hippie’ look,” explained Jake.
“I wanted her skin to be flawless, but dewy so I used COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation, buffing it on to the skin with a flat-topped brush. I love this foundation because it gives great coverage, but still looks like skin. I brushed a bronzer with a hint of shimmer on her cheeks and along the hairline for a natural glow and finished her skin with a shimmery coral blush on the apples of her cheeks.
We wanted to create a dramatic smoky eye so I first lined the inner rim and lashline with COVERGIRL LiquiLineBlast in Black Fire and then smudged it upwards. I used COVERGIRL Smoky ShadowBlast in Purple Plume along the lid and up towards the brow bone. The Aubergine shade complimented the color of the dress and works really well on brown eyes. I finished her eyes with dramatic lashes using false lashes and then applying COVERGIRL LashBlast Fusion.
I finished her beauty look with a nude lip to emphasize the eyes. I lined the lips with COVERGIRL Lip Perfection in Smoky and then filled in the lips with COVERGIRL Lip Perfection in Delish.”
