In her critically-acclaimed new film August: Osage County, Julia Roberts’ character sports a pared down, bare-faced look. For the movie’s New York premiere, the Lancome Ambassadress (how’s that for a title?) stunned with a subtle, but glamorous look consisting of a soft, smokey eye paired with a nude lip and glowing rosy cheeks.
“I wanted to give the lips an almost bare look, with just a little color, so I mixed two shades together: a neutral brown and a light pink,” says makeup artist Genevieve Herr.
To create a flawless canvas, Genevieve used Lancôme Teint Miracle foundation and applied Lancome Blush Subtil in Rose Fresque to her cheeks.
Lancôme’s Color Design Doll Lashes Edition Eye Brightening All-In-One 5 Shadow & Liner Palette in Violet Sweetheart was used to craft that beautiful, smokey eye, followed by coats of their Définicils High Definition Mascara in Black to really make Julia’s eyes pop.
For that simple, nude lip Genevieve combined Lancôme Rouge in Love lipstick in Sweet Embrace and Delicate Lace to achieve the perfect, barely there finish. She defined Julia’s pout with Lancôme Le Lipstique Lip Colouring Stick in Bronzelle.
