Jessica Alba showed up to Tribeca Film Festival Party in Los Angeles on Tuesday night, in truly startling style. The actress, who rocked a Spring 2010 Proenza Schouler mini, took a plunge into one of the hottest beauty trends this Spring: color! RadarOnline.com got some exclusive tips from makeup artist Melissa Walsh, who has painted the faces of everyone from Terri Seymour and Lauren Sanchez to Blondie and Sting, on how to steal to Jessica’s look, without going overboard.
1. Start with a tinted moisturizer like Jouer’s Luminzing Tint to even out skintone and give a glow. Conceal where necessary and then dust a sheer powder lightly over the whole face to set the base and keep oiliness at bay – I love Youngblood’s Hi Definition Hydrating Mineral Perfecting Powder.
2. Warm the cheeks with a peachy toned powder blusher on the apples and slightly under the cheekbones for a slight contour.
3. For the eyes start with a gold shimmery eyeshadow – Honey by Smashbox is a good choice over the lids and up to the crease. Define the crease with a matte light brown eyeshadow and blend together.
4. Line the top and bottom lashes with a black pencil and then with a gunmetal shadow – Dior’s 5 Couleurs Designer Palette in Smoky Design has some great shades – go over them and blend outwards, blend more on the outer corners of the lid in a V shape and merge with the gold eyeshadow. Line the inner eyes with a blue black pencil to add contrast – Korres Eyeliner Pencil in Blue Black is great and add 3 coats of thickening black mascara to top and bottom lashes for dramatic eyes. You could also add a few singles lashes
to the outer corners for extra effect.
5. Finish with a nude colored gloss on the lips – Prodigy Lipgloss in Surreal by Hourglass Cosmetics would be my choice.”
