Celebrity makeup artist Rosie Johnston is the artist behind this beauty look! For Emily’s look, Rosie took inspiration from her dress which was a short Monique Lhuillier number with long sleeves. “It’s very sexy, but very demure and classic at the same time.” Rosie and Emily wanted to do something that was sleek, modern, yet sophisticated.
The look for tonight really focused Emily’s eyes. “We went for a not so traditional smokey eye paired with really nude lips. To start, Rosie began by applying Votre Vu’s Champagne Kisses to Emily’s lips to prep them for the lipstick later on. The lip balm is infused with Vitamin E and champagne grape seed oil so it intensely moisturizes the lips and creates a great base for lipstick. Rosie kept Emily’s skin looking super fresh and clean using a combination of Kevyn Aucoin and Chanel foundations. To add a subtle flush to her cheeks, Rosie used Votre Vu’s Vu-On Rouge in Bouquet Rose and applied it using a foundation brush on the apples of her cheeks and blending up a little.
To prep the eyes and make the colors pop, Rosie first applied Votre Vu’s Lingerie Pour Les Yeux in Light all over Emily’s lids. Then she went in with the nude-bronze shade from the Palette Play in Copper and swept that all over the lid. Focusing next on the eyeliner, Rosie took the Le Joli Crayon in Charbon and lined her eyes with it. To smoke out the liner, Rosie then took the deep violet and black shades from the Palette Play in Violette and blended out the liner using a flat, wide eye shadow brush. “The eye shadow palette is amazing; the colors are so gorgeous and really created the look we were going for.” To finish off the eyes, Rosie applied lots of individual lashes and then three coats of Votre Vu’s Eiffel Power to give volume and length.
For her brows, using Arch de Triumphe in Warm and an angled brush, Rosie filled in Emily’s brows, combed them out, and then filled them in again, repeating this step 3 times for a “natural, yet defined look.”
“We always try to keep Emily’s look soft and sexy, but with a little bit of edge.”
