I am loving Nicole Richie‘s pastel hair and deep, plummy lip at the Met Ball 2013. Her makeup look was created by makeup artist Beau Nelson. Said Nelson, “Nicole’s dress was not an obvious punk choice but her nails definitely were, and were the starting point for the inspiration of her makeup. Once I saw the color of them all I could think about was doing a rich velvety matte dark lip.” Here, the beauty breakdown.
“I started by using Giorgio Armani Designer Lift in shades 8 and 6 to create dimension on the face (she was tanned from being in St Bart’s a few weeks ago) and then used MAC Contouring Creme to bring out her cheekbones and jaw line. I used Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer under eyes to brighten. I set makeup with Shu Uemura Colorless Loose Powder on the face and Laura Mercier Brightening Powder under the eyes.”
“On eyes I used Shu Uemura and Bobbi Brown shadows to sculpt and enhance her natural eye shape. I used Laura Mercier Liquid Eyeliner Pen at the base of the lashes and used real mink lashes from Velour along with L’Oreal Carbon Black Mascara on curled lashes to further define the eye. On the brows I chose Tom Ford Brow Sculptor in Espresso.
“I custom mixed a lipstick from CHANEL Rouge Allure in Rouge Noir and MAC Lipmix in Black and Fuschia and applied with a lip brush for precision.
As a finishing touch I applied Tom Ford Citrine Illuminating to the tops of cheekbones and the brow bone to give skin life and radiance.”
Yay or nay on Nicole Richie’s makeup look at the Met Ball?
