Emma Watson Makeup Look
Emma Watson has been gracing the screens and red carpets for quite some time now. Not only has she captured us with her acting talent and amazing style, but her flawless makeup also deserves some award worthy recognition.
Emma’s classic red carpet look of powdery soft skin, big lashes and a pop of color on the lips brings to mind the old Hollywood sirens, but with a modern twist. To get Emma’s signature red carpet look just follow these simple steps.
1. Prep the Face.
Prep and prime the face with your favorite facial moisturizer and a long lasting primer. Allow the products to sit for a few minutes to absorb into the skin before moving onto step 2.
2. Correct and Conceal.
Cover dark circles with a corrector or concealer by gently patting down the product with your ring finger. Remember to also cover up any blemishes or red spots in order to create flawless skin.
3. Blank Canvas.
Use your favorite foundation, and begin applying it from the bridge of your nose outward in small strokes. Apply foundation in downward motion on any areas that are uneven. For a super smooth finish try applying foundation with a sponge or blender tool.
4. Powder Fresh.
Using either a translucent powder, a foundation powder or even better an HD powder- press the powder on top of your makeup. When applying powder it is important to not “brush” powder on but pat and press it on top of your foundation so that the foundation sets.
5. Pink Cheeks.
Use a rosy or peach colored blush and lightly apply blush to the apples of your cheeks, the very top of your forehead and a small pop under the chin. This will create a very fresh and natural rosy color.
6. Groom and Define Eyebrows.
With an eye brow pencil or powder (in a lighter shade then your actual eyebrow color) begin to fill in your brows by creating small hair like strokes following the natural curve of your eyebrow.
7. Bright Eyes.
Apply a light nude shade over your entire eyelid to create an even base. Then use a lighter shimmery color and apply it in the inner corner of your eye and across the lash line and then up again to the crease. For added drama take a taupe or soft brown shade and apply it in the outer corner of your eye, from the lash line up to and slightly over the crease.
Tip: To make sure everything is evenly blended on your eyes, take a large clean dry brush and blend across your eyelids. The more you blend the softer the look
8. Skinny Cat Liner.
Apply black or dark brown liner in a think line all the way across the upper lash line, starting from the inner corner all the way to the outer corner. When you get to the outer corner make 2 small dots where you want the cat eye tip to end and connect the dots. Remember, Emma’s liner is never very dramatic, but just emphasizes her lashes.
9. Big, Big Lashes.
Apply a few coats of extra dark black mascara to the upper lashes and for extra drama apply a brown mascara to the bottom lashes.
For that extra glowey skin look it’s important to highlight or “strob”. Take a highlighter pen or cream and apply it to the bridge of your nose, the inner corners of your eyes, the outer corners of your eyes and out towards the tops of your cheekbones, under the eyebrows and finally along the jaw line. Blend into your foundation using a sponge or a brush.
11. Pop of Color on the Lips.
Emma usually pairs her looks with red lipstick. Make sure when choosing your red lipstick that you pick one that complements your skin tone. If using lip liner, apply lip liner first and cover the entire lips. Then apply one coat of lipstick, blot lips on a clean tissue and apply a second coat of lipstick to lock in the color.
Pair this glamorous look with super chic hair and you are ready to hit the red carpet!
