Makeup artist Lucky Smyler worked her magic on actress Naomie Harris’ face for the 2013 MET Gala. The theme for the evening was “Punk: From Chaos to Couture” and Lucky nailed it without taking away from Naomie’s natural beauty or making her look too gothic. Here, luck explains the exact products she used and even gives the steps. We will definitely be trying is this at home. Enjoy!
I started framing Naomie’s face by penciling in her eyebrows with Kevyn Aucoin Brow Pencil in brunette. Then, I primed her eyelids with Urban Decay Primer Potion. A light dusting of MAC rice paper eyeshadow was placed under the brow, then I swept Bobbi Brown blonde eyeshadow all over her lid. I wanted all of the focus to be directed to the lashline, so I painted the upper and lower water line with Tom Ford gel liner in black. Next, I softened the line and winged it out by smudging NARS night clubbing eyeshadow over the gel liner. Finally, I finished her eyes with four healthy coats of Dior Show blackout mascara.
I primed her face with Mally Beauty face and eye primers, then I applied YSL Touche Eclait #2 under her eye for discrete concealing. Next, I stippled Tom Ford beauty traceless foundation in tawny on over the concealer with a wet sponge, followed by setting her foundation with the cult favorite: Ben Nye Banana luxury powder. After that, I highlighted her cheek bones and the center of her eyes with Smashbox fusion soft lights. Finally, I used Tarte Amazonian clay bronzer in park avenue princess to accent her cheeks.
