Believe you me, I was somewhat glued to Social Media last night as we all caught glimpses of the Met Gala arrivals. Among the first I saw was Sarah Jessica Parker and I thought she epitomized the theme of the night quite beautifully. Others that stole the night for me were Karolina Kurkova, Liu Wen, Karlie Kloss, Rita Ora, Kate Moss, Aerin Lauder, Taylor Swift, Arizona Muze and Suki Waterhouse. Among these beauties was the ever so elegant looking Marion Cotilard. Read below to find out how she obtained her glamourous look....
Marion Cotillard turned heads at Monday’s Costume Institute Gala at The Met in New York. The French beauty paired her midnight blue Christian Dior gown with dramatic side-swept hair and luminous makeup by Hourglass. "The dress makes a graphic statement and we complemented it with glowing skin, iridescent eyes and richly pigmented lips," says makeup artist Christophe Danchaud.
Complexion: Danchaud began by prepping Marion’s skin with Hourglass’ No. 28 Primer Serum. He followed with Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup in 1.5 and Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer in Pearl. He finished with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light applied all over the face to create a soft-focus effect.
Cheeks: He applied Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Radiant Magenta, a golden fuchsia blush, to create a stunning glow.
Eyes: Danchaud used Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow in Exhibition. He began by applying the shimmer lilac shade all over her lids. He then applied the dark mauve shade in the duo close to her lash line and to the outer corner of her eye. He extended the mauve shade to underneath her eyes, close to the lash line. To lighten up his handiwork, he used a gold pigment on the lids. Finally, he applied several coats of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara.
Brows: He defined the brows with Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Dark Brunette.
Lips: Danchaud lined the lips with Hourglass Panoramic Long Wear Lip Liner in Raven, a new shade for summer. He followed with a mix of Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick in Raven and Muse creating a sensual orange red shade.
