Get the Cover Look: Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s Makeup featured image

Celebrity makeup artist Karen Kawahara gave Julia an oh-so-subtle smoky eye for our NewBeauty cover shoot along with glowing skin and rosy lips. Here is how she did it:

Dewy Skin
“I started Julia’s makeup with skin prep using Orlane Anti-Fatigue Absolute Radiance Cream ($195) on her face and neck. I let that set in while hair was being done, then I then added Chanel Hydra Beauty Serum ($135), which gives a nice dewy  look to the skin,” Kawahara says. “My favorite foundation on Julia is the Givenchy Photo’Perfexion Fluid Foundation ($50). I only use two drops all over the face because she looks fresh without a lot of foundation on her skin.” 

“I started on the eyes with Edward Bess Illuminating Eyeshadow Base in Dune ($30) and applied it all over the eyelid. This helps to keep the eye shadow stay in place,” says Kawahara.

“I wanted to give her a soft smoky eye to go with the look of the clothes so I used Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eyeshadow in #43 in Mystere ($61). I started with the light grey on the lids and added a black pencil close to the lashes and smudged with a brush lifting up in outer corner. I took a little brush and added the dark grey green shade in the quad to the lash line. I then smudged in the crease the same dark color with a soft brush to give shading rather than definition,” she says.



“For mascara I used Givenchy Mascara ($33) and added short black individual lashes for more of a sexy eye,” she says.

“I lined Julia’s lips in Kevin Aucoin Flesh Tone Lip Pencil ($25). It’s the only pencil I ever use. It just defines lip shape as if it was your natural lip with out adding color,” she says.

“With each dress I used a different color lipstick. For her pink dress I applied Dior Rouge in shade 365 ($35), which is a beautiful spring shade and for the yellow dress I applied shade 228. For the white dress I used Nars Audacious Lipstick in Julie ($32).”
