In the new movie, 30 Minutes or Less, starlet Bianca Kajlich plays a stripper named Juicy. Since she's kind of in-your-face trashy in the film, Bianca decided to pare down her look and give a touch of elegance for the movie's premiere. Here's what I did, and why:
Moisturizer: Dermalogica oil free. I heart this sheer but uber moisturizing prep for skin.
Base: Make Up Forever's HD mixed with a touch of Bonne Bell bronzer. I wanted a moveable, sheer coverage with a little glow of warmth. Bianca had gotten some sun and since she was showing a lot of skin I thought it best to amp it up on her face, too.
Concealer: Laura Mercier Camouflage. Love the way this palette-like cover up brightens under eyes and dodges spots.
Blush: Bonne Bell bronzer with Maybelline's Soft Plum Dream Mousse cheek color on apples/tops of cheeks to give a healthy glow to her skin.
Eyeshadow: L’Oreal Infinite Wear quad in Landscape and Benefit's High Beam. The quad: a nice array of neutrals. I wanted her eyes to look vivid, but not distract from the sheer pop of color I planned to give her lips. I used the medium brown in her crease and to define her bottom lash line. I then went in with the darkest shade and sculpted out her crease. I used High Beam on Bianca's brow bone and around her tear duct to catch light and add dewiness.
Eye Liner: Shiseido liquid liner felt tip pen. I mainly used this to dot in between Bianca's lashes and very close to the lash line. I wanted the drama of the eyes to mainly be about the lashes.
Mascara: Benefit's They're Real. Love this mascara for Bianca's lashes! It makes them so long and lush. I applied 3 coats to the top and one on the bottom just to anchor the look.
Lashes: Ardell individuals. I mixed short and medium. I started mid eye to the outer corner with 5 short sprigs picket fenced across. I then added 3 medium to the ends to bump up Bianca's already thick fringe.
Brows: Vanitymark Ultra-Brow powder in Milk Choco. I gave Bianca's arches ultimate polish by filling out her brow line up and out to give classic Hollywood glam. I like a softer brown on Bianca because it's lighter than her brow hairs, so it never looks obvious or filled in.
Lips: Benefit's gloss in Kiss Me. LOVE this unusual, electric lavender shade. I thought it was the perfect 'pink with an edge'. It being a very young Hollywood premiere, I figured something a little left of center, color wise, would fly nicely.
Body: Vanitymark's Shimmerskin body glisten. Since Bianca has such great skin I thought it would be amazing to just give a sheer, shimmery amp up. I sprayed over all exposed skin to give her body a dewy, 'new car' finish. Smile!
