Get The Look: Paula Patton at the GQ Men of the Year Party

Fiona StilesComment

For the GQ Men of the Year Party, Paula wanted to sex it up a little, so we went with pretty bright pink lip and a sexy, flirty eye with fluttery lashes.

After prepping the skin, I applied a bit of foundation and concealer where needed.  Before I powdered I used my fingers to apply a little of the By Terry liquid blush, concentrating on the apples of her cheeks and added the luminizer on her cheekbones and the bridge of her nose.  After powdering I dusted on a bit of bronzer on top of the blush to add a golden glow and to soften and blend the cheek color.

I subtly strengthened Paula's brows, making them just slightly bolder than they are.  I love a strong brow and a strong lip together.  Brushing them up also made them a little thicker.  Using a warm gold, I added a little dimension and depth to they eye, but I mostly focused on liner and lashes to make her eyes be the stand out feature.  Deep grey and black shadow paired with black liner gave her eyes a feline look, while lots of mascara finished it off. 

Paula pressed the lip color gently onto her lips from the tube, and then I did a light dusting of loose powder over it to give it a more matte texture.  We skipped liner so the lip would have a soft edge.
