Get the Look: Elizabeth Banks at the "Movies for Grown Ups" Awards

Client: Elizabeth Banks
Event: AARP "Movies for Grown Ups Awards
Date: Feb 8, 2016

For this event Elizabeth was wearing a very pretty white dress with color blocking on it.  Clothes look so amazing on her and we tend to play a lot with bright, bold lips, but we decided to not go with a statement lip because of the color blocking.  Instead we opted for a soft, pretty look with light pink cheeks and lips and a gently smokey taupe eye.  After prepping the skin I used a foundation brush and a beautyblender to apply the foundation, followed by a bit of concealer where needed.  A dusting of loose powder set the makeup which I followed with a swirl of a pale pink blush and a little illuminating powder along the tops of the cheekbones for a touch of radiance.  After filling in the brows I swept a warm taupe shade of shadow over the lids, blurring the line away from the lash line on the top and bottom so that shadow created a soft ring around the eye. I lined the upper lid and the waterline with a taupe pencil, which gives a lovely sensual elongated eye without closing the eyes up like black or brown. Using taupe shadow and eyeliner is one of my favorite red carpet tricks; it's amazing how something so subtle can open up the eyes so much. After that I curled the lashes and added two coats of mascara.  A soft pink lip kept the look fresh and pretty.  She just looks effortless and radiant.  Who doesn't want that?
