I'm always on the look out for wonderful makeup application tips, especially for a dressed up evening out. Lauren Bush look positively radiant at last night's Met Gala 2013 dressed in Ralph Lauren and with makeup by Clarins. Her skin just looked flawless and I just had to find out how she got this minimalist clean look that looked fantastic for night.
Clarins makeup artist Jean Fayard shares how she achieved Lauren's look:
To get Lauren ready for the Met Gala, I first prepped her skin with Clarins Everlasting Foundation in Amber #112 mixed with a little bit of Clarins Beauty Flash Balm for an instant glowing complexion. I then highlighted her brow bone and the ridge of her nose with Clarins Instant Light Complexion Perfector in Bronze Shimmer #03.
The theme was Punk so we wanted to give Lauren a bit of a dramatic eye that would really pop and complement her gorgeous Ralph Lauren gown. For the eyes, I opted for a soft smoky look going from the lightest purple to black. I used Clarins Ombre Minérale Mono Eyeshadow in Lavender Tea smudging the color along her lash line along with Clarins Waterproof Eye Pencil in Black #01. Next, I created a fading effect along the crease using Clarins Ombre Minérale Mono Eyeshadow in Sparkle Black and highlighted the brow bone with Clarins Ombre Minérale Mono Eyeshadow in Nude.
On her cheeks, I lightly brushed the Clarins Blush Prodige Illuminating Cheek Colour in Soft Peach #02. I went for natural lips using Clarins Lip Definer in Nude #3 and Clarins Rouge Eclat in Nude Caramel #15. To complement the lipstick color and add a little shine, I finished with Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector in Apricot Shimmer #02.
