Downton Abbey star Lily James stunned on the red carpet with a fresh, modern spring look. Her ethereal Marchesa gown called for a young and effortless makeup look, and makeup artist Jenn Streicher, using Charlotte Tilbury Beauty, was able to create the perfect face. “We wanted the makeup to look cool and hip to contrast the high glam of the gown. The goal was to have the beauty be the focus.”
Here are the key steps Streicher took to achieve Lily’s red-carpet makeup look…
>> To prep Lily’s skin and ensure a flawless canvas, Streicher applied moisturizer to the entire face, followed by an eye cream to reinvigorate the eye area. In the T-zone area, she appliedCharlotte Tilbury Wonderglow for a soft-focus finish and an instant “spotlight” effect.
>>A medium shade of foundation was applied all over, and brows were groomed.
>>Streicher swiped a copper eyeshadow across the lids, and lined the tops of the eyes and waterline with a brown liner. A smokey eyeshadow was then applied to the lash line and corners of the eyes, and cream eyeshadows in a rosy taup and peachy gold were applied across the lids. Streicher finished Lily’s eye look by applying four coats of mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
>>For a dewy glow, Streicher highlighted and sculpted Lily’s cheeks, nose, jawline and temples with a light-medium bronzer. She used Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick in Moon Beach on the cheekbones and down the center of nose, followed by a light pink blush on the cheekbones and at the apples.
>>To complete the look, Streicher opted for a nude lip by applying Charlotte TilburyK.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Bitch Perfect, followed by a nude lipliner to perfect the shape.
