Rihanna is getting all of the CFDA Awards red carpet hype for her naked dress, but we loved the far less scandalous makeup looks on Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen at the same high-profile event created by Ana Marie Rizzieri for Elizabeth Arden. Here's how the celebrity makeup artist got the ladies glam in order to accept the honor of Accessories Designer of the Year for The Row.
To ensure a flawless foundation, Mary-Kate and Ashley’s skin was cleansed and then prepped with Ceramide™ Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum and Prevage® Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum. Lips were hydrated with Eight Hour® Cream.
To perfect the skin and keep it luminous, both girls wore Flawless Finish Perfectly Nude Makeup in Alabaster. Their under-eyes were highlighted and concealed with Flawless Finish Correcting and Highlighting Perfector in Shade #1. For extra glow, Pure Finish Cool Radiance Highlighter was dabbed above the cheek bones, down the middle of the nose and in the middle of the forehead. Ashley’s cheeks were flushed with Beautiful Color Radiance Blush in Terra Rose and Mary-Kate’s in Blushing Pink. Both women had a final dusting of Pure Finish Summer Escape Bronzing Powder in Warm Glow.
Mary-Kate's Eyes and Lips
Lids were primed with Flawless Finish Correcting and Highlighting Perfector and then washed in Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Sandstone. Beautiful Color Define and Highlight Eyeliner Duo in Golden Sands was applied along the top and bottom lash line and up into the crease. Her inner corners were dotted with the pearl end of the liner. Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Cinnamon was blended into the crease to create a smokey look. Lashes were curled and Beautiful Color Lash Enhancing Mascara in Black was applied only to the top and bottom lashes to open the eye and give it a 70's edge. Mary-Kate’s naturally full brows were defined using Beautiful Color Natural Eye Brow Pencil in Brunette.
For a natural, rosy pout she rocked Summer Escape Beautiful Color Gloss Stick in Pink Sky.
Ashley's Eyes and Lips
Lids were primed with Flawless Finish Correcting and Highlighting Perfector and then washed in Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Glisten. For contour, Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Truffle was blended into the crease. Beautiful Color Define and Highlight Eyeliner Duo in Castaway was applied along the lash line and smudged for a smokey look; the shimmering blush end of the Castaway liner was applied under the lash line and the chocolate shade was layered on top. Ashley’s naturally full brows were defined using Beautiful Color Natural Eye Brow Pencil in Brunette. Lashes were curled and Beautiful color Lash Enhancing Mascara in Black was applied only to the top lashes.
Lips were kept nude using Beautiful Color Precision Glide Lip Liner in Honey all over the lip; that was topped with Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick in Golden Nude.
