While her dress left little to the imagination at the premiere of Thor: The Dark WorldJaimie Alexander's eye makeup was mysterious, flawless, and downright hot. Celebrity makeup artist Jeffrey Paul created the look for the actress using Votre Vu products, saying: “Jaimie can transcend the bounds of your favorite girl next door to encompass a whole package of glamour, beauty, sex appeal, and sizzling fashion goddess. This look was to bring out the warm sensuality of Jaimie’s eyes and face without being too strong or overpowering the amazing dress.”

Since the eyes were the main focus of the look,  Jeffrey prepped Jaimie’s lids with Lingerie Pour Les Yeux in Light and then applied the shade 'Raw Silk' from the Palette Play eye shadow quad in Violette to the center of her lids. To give the eyes more depth and shape “much like the silver screen images of the '20s and '30s”, Jeffrey applied the shade 'Gilt' from the Palette Play eye shadow quad in Copper. To line the eyes, he used the Le Joli Crayon in 'Charbon,' smudged it out, and softly went over it with the shade 'Moiré' from Palette Play in Violette.  He then enhanced her brows with Arch de Triumphe in Dark Brown to make them stronger.

For the lips, Jeffrey applied Votre Vu’s French Kiss Moisture Riche Lipstick in 'Babette' and then blotted it off so that there was a stain of color. Then right before walking onto the carpet, he mixed the Lip Lustre in 'Charming' with a lip brush into the lipstick and applied it to Jaimie’s lips to create a look that was in between cream and velvet.

After the eyes, Jeffrey took the Votre Vu Beauté en Bronze in 'Monaco' and worked the bronzer into her skin, concentrating under the cheekbones to enhance the definition of her face. Then he applied the blush from the duo to the apples of her cheeks. To finish off her look, Jeffrey put the Fleur Blanc Tonic in his hands and then lightly patted it over her whole face to keep her looking dewy.

PS—there's no room for tan lines in a dress like this! Jaimie used St. Tropez’s One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion along with their Self Tan Bronzing Mousse and Skin Illuminator for her all-over, even glow.
