Make-up artist to the stars Charlotte Tilbury revealed exactly how to get the vintage red carpet look.
She’s one of the most in demand make-up artists with Penelope Cruz, Kim Kardashian, Kate Moss and Amal Clooney as both regular clients and close friends, so it should be no surprise that Charlotte Tilbury was called on by actress Emma Roberts for her Oscar’s beauty look.
Going with a 1940s bombshell look (also seen on Emma Stone), Charlotte began by prepping Emma’s skin with her new Magical Facial Dry Sheet Mask, which launches later this month, before applying the Light Wonder foundation. The medium coverage foundation covers imperfections and leaves the skin with a lit-from-within glow.
Then for contour, Charlotte used her Filmstar Bronze and glow palette, applying the darker shade just below the cheekbones and the highlight on the top, creating shape and definition.
The 1940s bombshell look was amped with when Charlotte then applied the shade Red Carpet Red (of course). Emma’s lips were lined with the Kiss ‘N’ Tell pencil to make them appear fuller.
Moving onto eyes, Charlotte used a mix of a metallic bronze cream shadow in Bette on the lid and the gold-hued cream shadow in the shade Bette in the inner corner of Emma’s.
The look was enhanced with a reddish, gold-flecked eye shadow pencil in Bronzed Garnet used to line the upper lashes, finishing in Charlotte’s signature feline flick before mascara was applied on the top lashes only.
