Get the Look: Catherine Zeta Jones at MPTF

Catherine Zeta JonesHello Gorgeous!  Catherine Zeta Jones was radiant at the Motion Picture & Television Fund Saturday night, thanks in part to Celebrity make-up artist.  Below he fills us on what he used and tips for achieving the look on our own!

Moisturizer: Dermalogica oil free. I use this sheer yet hydrating lotion as a primer.

Eye cream: Chanel Sublimage. I love how it disappears. I apply before and after foundation to keep the eye area dewy and pliable.

Foundation: I mixed two, Make Up Forever's HD in Soft Sand and to warm up a touch, I added Fresh's Umbrian Clay in Marrakesh. Catherine was sporting a beautiful tan already, so I wanted to keep in that vibe.

Bronzer: Jemma Kidd Bronzing Trio compact. I like the three colors of soft bronze tones and slightly shimmery finish.

Concealer: Laura Mercier Camo. I went a touch lighter under the eyes to give the softer shadows a pop more definition.

Blush: Maybelline's Dream Mousse in Soft Plum. I wanted to keep the cheeks womanly but add a touch of sheer sweetness. This formula and color is perfect for adding drama without looking over done or too made up.

Eye shadows: MAC. Lid: Yogurt with a highlight of White Frost in the center to give the lid a moist, wet look. Crease: Quarry. Brow bone: Phloof! I used a small damp brush with Idol Eyes at the lash line to give liquid liner depth.  This was really a lash and liner story so I went soft and minimal with the shadow. Since CZJ was wearing lilac we settled on a cool toned vibe for the eye in mauve, petal and pewter.

Liquid liner: Shiseido pen liner in Black. My tip: apply a very thin line along lash line from tear duct to end of eye. Let dry and thicken and extend line up and out toward temple.

Mascara: Elizabeth Arden Ceramide in Black. Catherine curled her lashes before and after applying mascara. She did a whopping three coats on top and a just a touch on the bottom. This look works best with a stop top lash line and crisp but minimal bottom lash line.

Brow: Vanitymark Ultra-Brow in Dark Choco. Since the hair has an upswept, Ursula Andress vibe, I defined Catherine's brow with a lot of structure to balance the uber-glam feel.

Highlighter for tops of cheeks: LORAC illuminating powder in Spotlight. Great warm, champagne hue is perfect for deeper skin tones or tanned skin.

Lips: Lip liner: MAC Whirl. Lipstick: Lancome Pink Preview. Gloss: Smashbox Golden Purple. My first thought was to use just the matte lipstick. Catherine wanted something that would pop on the red carpet and stage so we added a glaze of the Smashbox gloss over top to add drama.
