Celebrity makeup artist Mai Quynh wanted to give Reese Witherspoon a modern, fresh and polished look for the Toronto International Film Festival screening of her movie Devil’s Knot. Inspired by the amazing green Jimmy Choo shoes and Jason Wu gown Reese donned for the event, we think Mai created the perfect palette for the actress. Here she reveals how to achieve the look:
Prep the skin with Laura Mercier Moisture Crème Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen Normal/Combination ($52)and then used fingers to apply Laura Mercier Foundation Primer ($32) all over the face.
Apply Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation in Cashew Beige ($45) using a sponge, then, to ensure makeup stays in place, apply Laura Mercier Pressed Setting Powder in Translucent ($34) using the Laura Mercier Finishing Brush ($42).
Dust the forehead, cheeks and chin with Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Bronze -02 ($36) using the Laura Mercier Bronzer Brush ($45).
Apply Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Sand Glow ($26) to eyelids, from the lash line to the crease, and then blend upwards.
Apply Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Colour in Fire Glow ($24) on the crease of the eyes and fade the color up towards the brow bone. Then, smudge both the Illuminating Eye Colour and Caviar Stick Eye Colour along the bottom lash lines using the Laura Mercier Smudge Brush ($24).
For added depth, smudge Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Truffle, ($23) along the top lash line.
Finally, use Laura Mercier Eye Brow Pencil in Fair Blonde ($22) to define brows.
