Zoe Saldana celebrated the premiere of her new flick Star Trek: Into Darkness on May 14 in a sheer nude gown by Rodarte. To complement her sultry style, makeup artist Vera Steimberg created a "chic, French-inspired" beauty look. Looking to copy it? Here are Vera's pro tips for attaining a similar style:
• For Zoe's deep, red pout, Vera applied Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Hollywood. “As soon as I saw the dress, I knew we had to go with a red lip,” she said.
• Vera shaded the actress's eyes with a mixture of soft browns and metallic golds. First she mixed Laura Mercier Metallic Crème Eye Colour in Gold and Burnished Copper and applied the combination to Zoe’s eyelids and along the bottom of her lash lines. Next she lined the inside rims of the eyes using Laura Mercier Eye Pencil in Special Brown. Then Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Colour in Earth Glow was applied under Zoe's eyes, close to her lashes. To define the eyes even more, Vera applied a combination of Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Coffee Ground and Truffle to the outer corners. The final touch was multiple coats of Laura Mercier Faux Lash Mascara in Black to Zoe's top and bottom lashes.
• To illuminate Zoe's complexion, Vera covered minor imperfections using Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-6, followed by a light dusting of Laura Mercier Mineral Illuminating Powder in Candlelight over the star’s face to create a natural glow. Vera finishes the look with Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Blaze to the apples of Zoe’s cheeks to create a natural flush of color.
